Dominion KX III KVM-over-IP vs KX II: what's really the difference?
A common question we get is: what is the difference between the new Dominion KX III and the previous generation KX II KVM-over-IP systems?
Here are some other notable features.
- Dramatically improved video performance: Dominion KX III provides high-performance IP access for traditional IT/computer applications, as well as video-intensive applications that need 1920x1080 (1080p) video resolution, 30 frames-per-second, 24 bit color and digital audio. Check out the KVM-video comparison test below, to see how Dominion KX III outperforms the competition.
- New, higher quality digital local port: Dominion KX III has a DVI-D local port for high performance, at-the-rack access. When connected to Raritan's T1700-LED-backlit LCD console drawer, you will experience a high performance display with speedy performance.
- Tiering port on all models: With CAT-5 cables, you can tier or cascade Dominion KX III units together and connect to up to 1024 servers from a single point in the data center.
Dominion KX III's stunning video performance extends the benefits of flexible, IP-based remote access to many new applications including broadcast (TV and radio), entertainment/media, scientific, financial, A/V and any application using streaming video or dynamically changing screens.
End-of-life has been announced for the KX II. This does not include the single-port KX2-101-V2, which is not going end-of-life. While Raritan will honor the existing hardware warrantees for the KX II, there will be limited firmware updates, with end-of-support set for July 2016. Customers should plan to migrate to the new Dominion KX III for more frequent updates, support for security fixes, browser/Java updates, maintenance and new features. KVMGalore supports Raritan's trade-in program to help customers upgrade to Dominion KX III.
