With a move to a larger location on the horizon and the desire to continue centralizing workstations and other equipment outside of its video editing studios, Pixcom vetted different KVM extenders and chose the far-reaching, fiber-optic Matrox Avio F120, which enables real-time control up to 10 km (6.2 miles) away from the system.
