This is awesome!! I’ve had nothing but poor luck with any commercial KVM solutions in the past.
There’s a huge range of quality in KVM solutions (and video modes changing can be a real nightmare, if you “cheap out”), but I’m really impressed with the “HDMI-to-CSI bridge” hardware solution, which handles video resolution changes the best.
I’m glad that they are creating a custom HAT for this. Granted it actually works as claimed, it will pretty much dominate the KVM world, IMHO.
BTW: for how awesome this project is, I think they deserve way more patronage. Like every mobo manufacturer (who doesn’t already have products which integrate in some kind of ILO solution) should be dumping wheelbarrows full of money on them.
I love how this project is so all-out to get every conceivable aspect of KVM and ILO goodness.
Ingesting audio from the server as well? I suppose the HDMI-to-CSI conversion can’t bring the audio within the HDMI along with it, as CSI would be video-only, right? Personally, audio isn’t very important to me, when it comes to KVM.
