Avocent KVM switches

Avocent today announced its new line of SwitchView multimedia keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) switches. SwitchView KVMs share peripherals such as keyboards, monitor, mouse, scanners, speakers, microphones, printers, cameras, PDAs and other USB peripherals with up to four PC and/or Mac computers. The devices also include a built-in USB hub to switch KVM audio and USB hub ports independently or jointly. The SwitchView PC ($80 shown at right) are available and backed by Avocent's two-year warranty and technical support.

The SwitchView PC controls up to four PS/2 enabled computers from one keyboard, monitor and mouse.

The SwitchView MM1 switches between USB or PS/2 systems, sharing USB devices and controlling multimedia applications. Independent switching for KVM and USB 1.1 hub ports is supported.

The SwitchView MM2 provides independent switching for KVM and two USB 2.0 hub ports, and offers hot-key switching as well as support for multimedia keys found on some USB keyboards.

The SwitchView DVI manages two USB DVI (digital visual interface) systems from one USB keyboard, mouse and DVI monitor. Offering resolutions up to 1600x1200, the SwitchView DVI delivers crisp images for high-end displays. Other features include audio, microphone and a built-in two port USB 2.0 hub.
