IOGEAR KVM with audio
has introduced its MiniView Micro USB Plus and MiniView Micro Audio KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switches. Users can now control USB or PS/2 computers with a single keyboard, monitor and mouse, while sharing multimedia speakers. Both models feature built-in six-foot cables for easy setup, and IOGEAR's patented VSE Video Signal Enhancement technology which boosts the video signal and supports high resolutions. The MiniView Micro USB Plus switch is priced at $80, while the MiniView Micro Audio Switch is priced at $60.
The MiniView Micro USB Plus KVM switch is a self-powered switch with built-in cables for simple Plug-n-Play use. This switch allows users to simultaneously run and share audio among two computers with a single keyboard, monitor and mouse. The switch comes with a unique USB Sniffing Technology that reduces the delay typically experienced when switching computers and allows multiple computers to be booted simultaneously. IOGEAR has also enabled the functionality of the special keys on these systems. When using a PC keyboard, a special set of hot keys have been designed to emulate the special keys on the Mac and Sun machines.
The MiniView Micro Audio KVM switch is the smallest two-port KVM switch available on the market with audio support. With KVM cables molded into the unit, users are now able to manage two PCs from a single keyboard, monitor and mouse and share the multimedia speakers between them.
Both KVM switches are available immediately from all major catalog resellers, online resellers and selected retail outlets.
