with USB and Audio
8-input KVM Switcher for DisplayPort Video,
USB, and Audio
Easily switch between eight computers using DisplayPort
with the Gefen 8x1 DPKVM Switcher.
The rack-mountable Gefen 8x1 DPKVM Switcher offers an
economical solution for switching between eight different
computers to one display location. In addition, USB
peripherals and audio are carried at the same time from
each source making this a very versatile solution.
Eliminating the need to purchase many displays,
keyboards and other accessories for each computer in a
studio or professional environment, this versatile solution
saves money, supports both Mac and PC-type computers,
and offers uncluttered and increased desktop space.
The 8x1 DPKVM Switcher outputs are: One DisplayPort,
two USB 2.0 ports (used for keyboard, mouse and other
USB 2.0 peripherals) and an analog L/R audio. This
Switcher can be controlled using front-panel discrete
switching, the included IR Remote control, or the RS-232
port for switching automation.
The 8x1 DPKVM Switcher is compatible with all operating
systems using DisplayPort and USB.
