ATEN Frees Up Rack Environments with Ultra-Short Depth LCD Console

ATEN Technology, Inc., the technology leader and global manufacturer of KVM and Pro AV connectivity solutions, announced the first in its new series of Ultra-Short Depth Dual Rail Widescreen LCD consoles. Designed to exceed the requirements for space utility optimization, superior video quality, adaptive deployment, and operational versatility, the “CL3800” is ideal for applications such as mobile live streaming in the broadcasting sector or control rooms with limited space.

Supporting three popular video input interfaces – HDMI, DVI, and VGA – the console features an 18.5” LED-backlit widescreen LCD monitor with an integrated keyboard and touchpad. The short depth design fits 19” equipment cabinets and is especially suitable for shallow racks down to 45cm depth. The CL3800 also provides a space-optimizing solution for specialized control environments, such as outside broadcast vans (OB vans), compact control rooms, and instances where space is at a premium.

Key features: 

  • Supports Popular Interfaces: connect the console and a computer via HDMI, DVI, or VGA.
  • Space Saving/Utility Optimization: Dual rail design with top and bottom clearance in a 1U high system rack allows LCD monitor and keyboard/touchpad modules to operate independently. These modules can slide back to “hideaway” when not in use, while the thin profile LCD monitor rotates back, flush against the rack, allowing 24/7 monitoring of computer activity.
  • Second Console for Flexible Deployment: users can choose to manage the computer from an external console. The CL3800 features a port for an external USB mouse on the unit’s front panel, while ports for the second KVM console (USB keyboard/mouse and HDMI, DVI, or VGA monitor) are provided on the rear panel.
  • Superior Wide Screen Monitoring Image: The 18.5” full HD widescreen LCD monitor ensures 16:9 video ratio, providing ample viewing area.

“Designed with data center and server room customers in mind, our new line of ultra-short depth dual rail widescreen LCD consoles addresses space constraints in the rack environment. The equipment supports popular video input interfaces to ensure maximum flexibility, while the integrated, all-in-one LCD console makes it easy for the customer to quickly switch between systems in the rack when used in conjunction with a KVM,” said Aaron Johnson, product manager at ATEN Technology, Inc.
