New LCD Console Offers Largest, Highest Resolution Rack-Mountable LCD Screen Available

The RACKCONS2001 LCD rack mount console features the largest screen size available for use in a standard 19” server rack or cabinet, with support for both VGA and DVI servers and a USB 2.0 front mounted USB port for thumb drive file transfers

Groveport, OH - July 26, 2010 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity and technology parts has announced the availability of the RACKCONS2001 Rack Mountable LCD KVM Console, which offers the largest LCD display available for use in a 19-inch server cabinet.

The LCD KVM console provides users with a simple and convenient method of connecting to and controlling servers directly, or connecting to a DVI or VGA KVM switch to control full banks of servers.

“As standard racks have a 19” wide horizontal opening, many IT admins wouldn’t consider going larger than a 19” screen” said Jon Arnett, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com. “Since screen measurements are taken diagonally, we’ve been able to create a 20” LCD console that fits into the standard 19” rack opening using a thin yet durable outer casing.”

“The RACKCONS2001 is a great addition to our line of LCD KVM Consoles, as it offers a physically larger screen to improve the viewing experience. It also supports higher display resolutions than any other size of console, up to 1600 by 1200, which makes it ideal for advanced high resolution applications” said Arnett.

Other features of the RACKCONS2001 Rack Mountable LCD KVM Console include:

  • Front panel USB connector, which allows for USB thumb drives or other high-speed USB 2.0 devices to be easily connected/disconnected to transfer files to or from a connected server
  • Support for both VGA & DVI PCs/Servers, unlike the majority of consoles that support only VGA
  • Built-in speakers for scenarios where audio is required in the server room
  • Folds away in a single 1U space, and features a locking front mechanism to prevent unauthorized access to connected servers and computers

The RACKCONS2001 is currently available directly from StarTech.com (MSRP: $ 1,579.99) as well as through leading technology resellers including CDW, Dell, PC Connection, and Insight and will also be distributed by Ingram Micro, Tech Data, D&H and SYNNEX.
