IOGEAR expands KVMP line

IOGEAR on Tuesday introduced three new additions its KVM product line. The company's new 2- and 4-Port KVMP Switches with USB 2.0 hub and 2.1 Stereo (GCS1802 for $200 and GCS1804 for $300) allow small and home office users to share USB 2.0 peripherals, such as printers and scanners, with multiple computers. Users can control several machines with a single keyboard and mouse, and using a single monitor; in addition, audio enthusiasts can also listen to favorite songs, programs and audio clips in high-quality through PC speakers, as both products support 2.1 stereo sound. Designed for avid gamers and graphic designers, IOGEAR's 4-Port Dual-Link DVI KVMP Switch (GCS1204 for $450) supports up to 3840 X 2400 resolutions, allowing for easy viewing of intense graphics that may normally appear distorted and blurry at lower resolutions.

All three products feature patented asynchronous switching, enabling individuals to independently alternate applications between the connected computers. Users can run one application on one machine and work out of a different program on the other (at a different resolution). The solutions also support Display Emulation Technology, which remembers the monitor's parameters to maintain the best settings when changing between machines.

"At IOGEAR, we continue to expand our KVM offerings to satisfy our customers' pain points," said Miranda Su, executive vice president at IOGEAR. "These additions to our KVM product family cater to specific users' needs, allowing them to have complete, organized work and gaming environments."

The products are not yet available on the company's website.

    Why is there a picture of the Iomega logo in this story about IOGEAR? They're not the same thing...

    last I checked...

    ...Iomega and IOGear are 2 different companies as well_

    MacNN - did they merge or buy each other out and you have the inside track ahead of everyone else?
