Gefen's New DisplayPort KVM Switchers Access Multiple Computers Using the Same Monitor and Keyboard/Mouse

New KVM solution supports DisplayPort systems.

Digital connectivity solutions provider Gefen today announced two new comprehensive KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switchers for DisplayPort computer systems using USB 2.0 peripherals. The 4x1 DPKVM Switcher and the 8x1 DPKVM Switcher connect up to four or eight computers to the same monitor and keyboard/mouse connection. This streamlines the desktop and eliminates the need for too many devices that can crowd the workspace while increasing productivity and performance.
