Remote Video Features

High Definition (HD) Remote Video Resolution - 1920x1080

The Dominion KX III is the first and only KVM-over-IP switch to support full High Definition (HD), 1080p remote video resolution. In addition, popular widescreen formats are supported including 1600x1200, 1680x1050 and 1440x900, so remote users can work with today’s higher resolution monitors.

Full-Screen Video Display

With the Dominion KX III’s full-screen video display, users appear to be directly connected to the target server. The user views the full video display from the target server without window borders or toolbars. With the new “pop-up” menu bar, users can run KVM client functions while in full-screen mode.

Port Scanning and Thumbnail Views

View selected servers as a slide show and/or real-time thumbnail views. The user can select a list of servers, set the scan interval and quickly access a given server. Works remotely and locally.

Dual Monitor KVM Client Support

For customers wishing to enhance productivity by using multiple LCD monitors, the Dominion KX III can launch KVM sessions to multiple monitors, either in full-screen or standard modes.

In this mode, users can view the list of servers on one screen and launch full-screen KVM sessions in another. Or use a secondary, desktop monitor exclusively for KVM.

Dual Video Cards

Servers with dual video cards can be remotely accessed with an extended desktop configuration available to the remote user.

Flexible Video Scaling

In many instances, the user would like to “scale,” i.e., stretch or compress the target server’s video display to fit the display window on the client. With the Dominion KX III’s flexible scaling, the user is not restricted to fixed-size windows, but can drag the window border to the desired size, including small thumbnail views.

Automatic Color Calibration

The Dominion KX III provides automatic and manual color calibration that optimizes the screen display to provide vivid, lifelike colors to enhance productivity and reduce bandwidth.

24-Bit Color Support

Dominion KX III’s 24-bit color support enables high video quality over the network. Multiple color modes, as well as gray scale, are available to connect via modem or low bandwidth link.

Flexible Performance & Bandwidth Settings for any Environment

Video performance can be configured to match the available network bandwidth. With high­-speed LAN access, more bandwidth is available and higher quality video information can be sent, resulting in better performance. When accessing via a limited bandwidth connection, Dominion KX III can be configured to the limited bandwidth available.

Fast Video Switching

Once the Dominion KX III’s advanced video resolution detection has calculated a target server’s video characteristics, connections to the server occur almost instantaneously. This gives the Dominion KX III user immediate access in most cases to all connected servers.

Mouse and Keyboard Features

Absolute Mouse Synchronization

The Absolute Mouse Synchronization feature is the ultimate mouse synchronization solution. For Windows and Mac® servers with a compatible USB mouse port, there is no need to adjust the mouse settings on the target server. This reduces installation time and enhances the Dominion KX II’s plug-and-play nature. In addition, the remote and target server mouse pointers never go out of synchronization. This feature is enabled by the D2CIM-VUSB and D2CIM-DVUSB virtual media CIMs.

Intelligent Mouse Synchronization™

Most KVM switches require the customer to manually adjust the mouse motion and mouse acceleration settings for all connected target servers for each KVM user. With the Intelligent Mouse option, no such manual configuration is required for many servers. The system can automatically adjust to the server’s mouse settings. This further enhances the Dominion KX III’s plug-and-play operation.

Speedy Single Mouse Mode

Many Dominion KX III customers prefer a dual-mouse configuration, however the KX III’s single mouse mode provides speedy performance and does not require server changes for any type of server or OS.

Transparent Keyboard Handling

Transparent keyboard handling means that virtually all user keystrokes are sent to the target server and not processed by the desktop client. This key feature obviates the need for most keyboard macros and allows the user to directly interact with the target server with a higher level of connectivity.

Send Text to Target

With this feature, customers can conveniently send text data, scripts or commands from their remote workstation to servers in the data center.

Security Features

Validated FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Module

For government, military and other high security applications, the Dominion KX III utilizes a validated FIPS 140-2 Cryptographic Module for enhanced encryption. Modules tested and validated as conforming FIPS 140-2 are accepted by federal agencies of the U.S. and Canada for the protection of sensitive information.

AES Encryption

The Dominion KX III utilizes the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption for added security. 128- and 256-bit AES encryption is available.

AES is a U.S. government-approved cryptographic algorithm that is recommended by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in the FIPS Standard 197.

Smart Card and CAC Authentication

The Dominion KX III supports smart card and DoD Common Access Card (CAC) authentication at the rack, stand-alone over IP and through CC-SG. It meets U.S. Govt. HSPD-12, PIV and CAC directives and ISO 7816, PC/SC and CCID standards. All Dominion KX III models support smart cards using the D2CIM-DVUSB CIM.

Video, Virtual Media and Smart Card Encryption

Dominion KX III securely encrypts the video stream, keyboard and mouse data, virtual media and smart card transmissions.

RADIUS, LDAP and Active Directory® Authentication

Dominion KX III integrates with industry-standard directory servers, such as Microsoft® Active Directory, using either the LDAP or RADIUS protocols. This allows Dominion KX II to use pre-existing username/password databases for security.

Configurable Strong Password Checking

The Dominion KX II has administrator-configurable, strong password checking to ensure that user-created passwords meet corporate and/or government standards and are resistant to brute force hacking.

Configurable Security Banner

For government, military and other security conscious customers requiring a security message before user login, the KX III can display a user-configurable banner message and require acceptance before user login.

Upload Customer-Provided SSL Certificates

Customers can upload to the Dominion KX III digital certificates (self-signed or certificate authority provided) for enhanced authentication and secure communication.

Local Authentication with Users, Groups and Permissions

In addition to external authentication, the Dominion KX III supports local authentication. Administrators can define users and groups with customizable administration and port access permissions.

Management Features

Remote and Local Management and Administration

Administrators can perform all management, administration and configuration operations, using a simple graphical user interface, remotely from the convenience of their desktops or while in the data center.

Raritan’s CommandCenter Integration

Like the rest of the Dominion series, Dominion KX III features complete CommandCenter Secure Gateway integration, allowing enterprise users to consolidate all Dominion KX II and III devices into a single logical system, accessible from a single IP address and under a single management interface.

With CommandCenter Release 5.2, customers can now access servers connected to the Dominion KX III via the iPhone and iPad.

Event Logging via SNMP Management and Syslog

System and user events are logged and recorded in a log file on each device. For permanent logging, the Dominion KX III can send SNMP TRAPs for these events to SNMP management system(s). SNMP TRAPs are fully configurable by the administrator. SNMP v2 and v3 supported. Syslog logging is also available.

Dominion KX II Compatibility

Customers who have purchased Raritan’s second generation Dominion KX II switches can continue to use these switches together with the Dominion KX III. Both CommandCenter Secure Gateway and Raritan’s Multiplatform Client support seamless access and control of target servers and serial devices connected to the Dominion KX II and Dominion KX III digital appliances.

Paragon and Dominion CIM Compatibility

For existing Raritan customers, select Paragon II CIMs as well as the Dominion KX I DCIMs are supported by the Dominion KX III. Paragon and Dominion customers wanting to upgrade to Dominion KX III can reuse many of their CIMs, reducing the cost of migration.
