IPMI console question

A while back I asked (I think it was here) about the idea of server grade PC having video hardware that would support VNC, including mouse and keyboard. Someone suggested that IPMI would do this. I took note but the need did not come up until now. But now as I look through IMPI specs and documentation for IPMI software, I cannot find any such feature equivalent.

Does anyone know (especially used it) if IPMI can provide direct video console access, with mouse and keyboard?

Or do I need to fall back to a KVM switch that translates VGA output and the keyboard/mouse access via VNC?
