KBD 3000/3100

These keyboards have been designed specifically to meet the needs of Video Management System (VMS) operators. The keyboards are fully programmable, providing exceptional integration with CathexisVision VMS functions.

With an ergonomic design and pleasing textured black finish, the Cathexis KBD-3000/KBD-3100 are both an aesthetic and a functional effective complement to the powerful CathexisVision VMS.

The KBD-3100 has identical features to the KBD-3000 but with the added USB connection

  • Fully integrated with VMS
  • Responsive PTZ joystick
  • 28 x 2 character LCD display
  • Fast key-selection of cameras, presets, monitors, outputs, camera tours and screen layouts
  • 4 soft keys enable software-configurable options
  • Keyboard LCD display writable by VMS
  • RS-232 (DB9) or RS-422 (RJ45) – both KBD-3000 and KBD-3100
  • USB 2.0 (Type B) – KBD-3100 only
  • 3 Axis Joystick

Mac OS X

If using a device with standard FTDI vendor
and product identifiers, install
to prevent mac OS from
claiming the device as a serial port (locking out D2XX programs).
This will prevent the device being used
with the VCP driver as a standard COM port.
