Multi-screen 9-port, triple-view KVM

    For a project in the railroad business, we are upgrading old desktops to servers. This saves us a lot of space as we get rid of all the monitors and keyboards and mouses.

    In order to access the servers we need a KVM solution that is able to access 9 servers divided over 2 server racks (racks will be next to each other), most of the servers are data loggers for the systems.

    One server displays a track overview of 200 kilometers of track. Currently we have 3 monitors displaying the complete overview, unfortunately scrolling is not an option here. So we like a KVM solution that is able to:

    -triple monitor output of at least HD quality, preferably higher resolutions.
    -9 ports, the logical number would be 16 then
    -remotely accessible, and locally accessible, (if this is possible at the same time that would be nice, but not needed)
    -only 1 set of a keyboard and mouse needed to control it all.

    Online we have not found devices which are capable of these requirements. So my question is, how can there requirements be solved? (I assume multiple devices will be needed, and how will they be connected to each other?).

    Thank you for your time and answer! (if anything is incomplete or you require more information, feel free to contact me).

    We need a few clarifications please...
    1) What type video do these servers have (DVI; VGA; etc.)?
    2) The one server which displays the track - does it have 3 video outputs (so that the image can span across 3 monitors)?
    3) Do all the rest of the servers have only one video output each?
