The Double Diamond Warranty is our no-questions-asked warranty that protects your BLACK BOX® brand products* from accidental damage, including drops, water, and power surges. Most products come with a one- or two-year warranty. Some products, such as copper cables, manual switches, cabinets, and racks, are guaranteed for life! During the warranty period, Black Box will repair or replace your damaged equipment within one week of receipt at NO CHARGE!

DVI-I connector for digital displays

The ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus's console connectors include PS/2 and USB ports for a keyboard and mouse, an audio jack for plugging in speakers, and a DVI-I port that auto senses between digital and analog video connections. Even better, the DVI-I port converts an analog input signal into a DVI signal to give you much clearer video displays!

Remote users get great video, too. An advanced video acceleration engine provides remarkable screen update performance when used over a LAN. Since the picture is transferred digitally, you can count on high color and picture fidelity at LAN speeds.

Supports virtual media and audio feeds

You can link the ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus to IBM® compatible, Sun®, and Mac® servers and to just about any other ServSwitch product. It also enables virtual media support; just attach the USB port to the server you’re controlling, and the Wizard IP Plus will emulate a USB mass storage device. Files on the viewer server can be made to appear on the virtual media drive, enabling easy file transfer between the viewer server and the viewed server.

If you need “audio-over-IP” applications, there’s also an audio jack, so you can feed audio signals from a host site to remote VNC viewers for presentation and training purposes.

Secure VNC viewer or browser access

The ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus contains an embedded VNC server, which you can access securely using a VNC viewer or a browser running JavaT. No extra software seat licenses are needed, and private or shared access modes are supported from up to four viewers.

State-of-the-art data compression techniques work even at dial up connection speeds as low as 33 kbps. Furthermore, a dial up access option provides inherent first-level security. Data-stream encryption using a 128-bit key is available, and a VNC-specific architecture enables mutual authentication between local and remote users.

This ServSwitch has a power control port that enables a remote user to reset one or more power switches in the host system. Dual power connectors enable the ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus to draw power either from its included adapter or from a secondary power adapter that can be connected to a UPS to provide redundant power capabilities.

The ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus is also flash upgradable, so it will never be obsolete.

NOTE: Windows 3.x/95/98 (non SE) and Windows NT do not support virtual media or a USB keyboard and mouse.

NOTE: The ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus works with most of ServSwitch products from Black Box.

NOTE: To connect the ServSwitch Wizard IP Plus to a VGA monitor or to a CPU with a VGA video output, you will need DVI-I to video adapters.
