OVERVIEW
The ServSwitch™ Wizard (SW651A–SW652A) is designed to
be placed on desktops and to look great there. But it’s not just
for show—it’s a sophisticated switch that can support Display
Data Channel (DDC) PC-to-monitor communication and whose
firmware can be flash-upgraded. Two or more Wizards can even
be synchronized to support CPUs with multiple video outputs.
The ServSwitch Wizard LP (SW642A) is a little over an inch
(2.5-cm) thick and measures 6.6"W by 4.8"D (16.8 x 12.2 cm).
It’s so tiny that we ship it with VELCRO® strips, so you can stick
it on the wall!
In addition, we offer a the 4-port Wizard model as a kit
(SW642A-K). It includes the 4-Port Wizard LP and (4) premium
KVM user cables (EHN408-0010).
The ServSwitch Wizard PRO (SW644A, SW648A) can be placed
in a 19" rack with its Rackmount Kit (RMK19WP). Even if you put it
on the desktop, it’s sturdy enough to go under a monitor or other
device. It has a powerful on­screen menu system.
The ServSwitch Wizard MP (KV804A–KV805A) is a highperformance multiplatform keyboard-, monitor-, mouse-, and audiosharing device that supports a wide range of IBM® PC and Sun®
compatible hardware and software platforms, including some highend PS/2® compatible computers (RS/6000®, Compaq® Alpha®,
and SGI™).
The KV805A model also supports computers with USB keyboard
and mouse ports, including USB versions of the Apple® Macintosh®
G3™ and G4™. The Wizard MP enables control of up to four devices.
Like the Wizard MP, the ServSwitch Wizard DVI enables control of
high-end PS/2 compatible computers (IBM RS/6000, Compaq Alpha,
and SGI). This ServSwitch is specifically designed to work with Digital
Visual Interface (DVI) video. It comes in several models.
The 2-Port (KV1002A-R2) and 4-Port (KV1004A-R2) Single-Head
models support DVI video cards with a single video output.
The 2-Port (KV1022A-R2) and 4-Port (KV1024A-R2) Dual-Head
models support DVI video cards with up to two video outputs.
They also support user stations with either dual monitors or a single
monitor that can combine dual video feeds into a single image.
The 4-Port (KV1044A-R2) Quad-Head model supports DVI video
cards with up to four video outputs. It also supports user stations with
either as many as four monitors or a single monitor that can combine
as many as four video feeds into a single image.
All models include support for video resolutions up to 1600 x
1280, multiple channel-switching methods, auto-scanning, screen
blanking, cascading, and keyboard commands (using any of several
possible hotkeys).
