(Media-Newswire.com) - Huntsville, Alabama [February 14 , 2013] – Emerson Network Power, a business of Emerson ( NYSE:EMR ) and a global leader in maximizing availability, capacity and efficiency of critical infrastructure, today announced the Avocent® HMX High Performance KVM ( keyboard, video, mouse ) system has helped to enable MTI Film’s ( MTI ) expansion into post-production services and to compete in the same field as large competitors. Additional benefits include greater efficiency and productivity, cost savings, improved profitability, and a six-month return on investment ( ROI ).
The Avocent HMX High Performance KVM system played a key role in the facility’s design – to ensure access and flexibility for the artist-operators and clients who would use it. Embedded in the post-production facility’s infrastructure in this manner, the system provides users an “at-the-desktop” experience from their work stations to any appliances, PCs or computing resources attached to the HMX IP network.
“When you’re doing network-level shows, your clients have certain expectations,” said John Stevens, MTI Film’s director of engineering. “This system enables us to meet those expectations. I can’t imagine trying to do this without the Avocent HMX High Performance KVM system.”
The Avocent HMX High Performance KVM system provides a number of benefits critical to MTI’s ability to compete in its market. The system saves MTI money because resources do not have to be duplicated. It also helps increase the company’s profitability – there are no capacity limits unless every bay is full, so MTI can accommodate more clients. Additionally, it increases efficiency and productivity by allowing users to easily access resources from any and every bay. For instance, work in progress does not have to be saved and downloaded to equipment in another room, and MTI’s operators don’t waste time waiting on equipment to be physically available.
Another significant benefit is ROI, which took only six months. MTI credits such a fast ROI to the productivity and efficiency that comes from the system’s dynamically putting any needed resource at the fingertips of the facility’s users and operators.
“The Avocent HMX High Performance KVM system is reliable, flexible and at a great overall price,” said Stevens. “I love it. If I didn’t, I wouldn’t have bought it.”
