Control any Gefen Switcher or Matrix with an IP Interface using a Software Program Installed on your PC

The Gefen Matrix Switcher Keyboard Controller allows customers with Gefen matrix or switcher products to use a keyboard with hot keys to switch between sources, providing a more useful interface with Gefen switchers and matrixes. This simple Telnet application can control any Gefen switcher or matrix that has an IP interface through a Local Area Network (LAN) using a PC/Mac keyboard. To control any Gefen switcher or matrix, set the IP address and send command sequence combinations.

How It Works


For example, you can set the applications Routing Sequence Key to use the "Left Ctrl". Then, you can send the following control sequence; Left Ctrl + Left Ctrl+ 2, which in turn will the switch to input #2 on the 4x1 DPKVM Switcher. If the user is using the 32x32 DVI Matrix, it will send the following command sequence; Left Ctrl + Left Ctrl + 0 + 3 + 0 + 7 which will route input #3 to output #7.
