Quick Overview 2-Port KVM Switch controls two DVI and USB computer systems with a single set of peripherals.
The MasterView CS1762 DVI KVM Switch charts a revolutionary new direction in KVM Switch functionality by combining a 2-port KVM switch with a 2-port USB hub at the same time as it provides an interface for a digital monitor (DVI). As a KVM Switch, it allows users to access two computers using a single USB keyboard, USB mouse, and a monitor console. As a USB hub, it permits each computer to access any peripherals connected to the hub on a one computer at a time' basis. The CS1762's independent (asynchronous) switching feature allows the KVM focus to be on one computer while the USB peripheral focus is on another. This eliminates the need to purchase a separate USB hub as well as the need to purchase separate stand-alone peripheral sharers - such as printer servers, modem splitters, etc. The CS1762, 2 Port DVI USB KVM Switch further improves on previous designs with DVI (Digital Visual Interface) connectors, and the transfer of keyboard and mouse data to the computers via fast, reliable USB connection. DVI supports both digital input (flat panel displays, data projectors, plasma displays, digital TVs and set-top boxes) and analog video input (traditional monitors and TVs).
