IOGEAR announced the 2-Port Dual-View Dual-Link DVI KVMP Switch with Audio (GCS1642), advancing KVM (keyboard-video-mouse) functionality to new heights. The DVI KVMP switch shares video on two 30″+ dual-link DVI monitors with a single console while supporting audio, 3D Graphics and the highest resolutions for commercial or home settings.
A DVI KVMP switch by name, the new IOGEAR KVMP (keyboard-video-mouse-peripheral) product does more than just share the highest resolution (up to 2560 x 1600) or widescreen video on two dual-link DVI monitors with support for 3D graphics. The GCS1642 also features two USB 2.0 peripheral ports for asynchronously sharing USB devices between computers, while a powered USB hub can be attached to the peripheral ports for added functionality. Audio and microphone support for sharing speakers and a microphone are an added convenience.
Coupled with a patented DynaSync technology on the GCS1642 which remembers a monitor's ideal resolution and refresh rate (EDID), making it possible to boot all computers simultaneously, switch back and forth, and still maintain native video setting for the monitor.
Applications for the GCS1642 are many. Computer aided design and manufacturing (CAD / CAM), high-end desktop publishing, graphic design and video editing could all benefit from savings on equipment and increased efficiency when more than one display is needed. Surgical/diagnostic displays used in medical settings and high-end gaming systems can also achieve more with IOGEAR's KVMP advancements. Funny
