二、Working principle of HDMI KVM network extender
The sending end of the HDMI KVM network extender first encapsulates the USB signal, HDMI video signal, 3.5mm microphone signal, and on/off signal of the computer host into signals that can be transmitted through the network cable; The receiving end of the HDMI KVM network extender decodes and restores the received data, and outputs the computer's audio signal through the 3.5mm headphone jack. The HDMI video is connected to the monitor through the HDMI output interface, and the computer's on/off and reset buttons are output to the desktop button. The microphone signal is then transmitted back to the computer host, and the keyboard, mouse, USB drive, and USB camera are connected through the USB interface. This way, you only need one HDMI KVM network extender receiver, one HDMI interface display, a set of wired or wireless (mechanical) keyboards and mice, a USB camera, a computer switch button (usually included when purchasing an extender), and a headphone that integrates headphones.
According to the required resolution and refresh rate, the extension distance of the internet cafe extender from the computer room host to the customer's computer is generally as follows (taking Xudongtai eKL-HU100 as an example): 1920x1080p 60Hz lossless delay extension of 100 meters, 2560x1440p 60Hz (2k) lossless delay extension of 70 meters, 3840x2160 422 30Hz, or 3840x2160 420 60Hz lossless delay extension of 70 meters.
