Convenient Control of Multiple Computers
A desktop keyboard video mount (KVM) switch is a device that enables users to control multiple computers or servers using a single keyboard, monitor, and mouse. These switches benefit individuals who work with multiple systems simultaneously and must switch between them quickly and efficiently. Westward Sales offers a range of KVM switches with unique features and capabilities to meet your needs.
KVM Switch Features and Capabilities
KVM switches offer a range of time-saving technology to enhance user productivity and convenience. For example, some models support multiple video inputs and outputs, allowing users to connect and control several devices with different video formats. While others support audio input and output, enabling users to listen from multiple devices through a single set of speakers or headphones.
Hotkey switching is a helpful feature offered by many KVM switches. It allows users to switch between devices by pressing a designated key combination on the keyboard. Hotkey switching is particularly convenient for users who need to switch between devices quickly and efficiently.
USB interfaces are standard on most KVM switches. Some models support USB 2.0 and 3.0, enabling users to connect and control USB devices such as printers, scanners, and external hard drives. Sharing peripherals between workstations saves space and funds and significantly enhances user productivity.
Furthermore, the switches offer support for digital displays with resolutions up to 4K, providing users with a high-quality viewing experience. As displays and monitors become increasingly larger, choosing a KVM switch that supports the latest display technologies is necessary.
Number of Ports
One crucial factor to consider when choosing a KVM switch is the number of devices needing to be controlled. KVMs range in size from two to eight ports, allowing users to choose a model that meets their specific needs. Consider the number of devices needing to be controlled now and in the future when selecting a KVM switch.
Type of Connectors
A key consideration is the types of connectors used by the devices which will be connected to the switch. Some switches may support certain types of connectors, such as DP, VGA, DVI, or HDMI. In addition, KVM switches provide various interfaces, so you’ll likely find a model that supports the connectors used by the devices that will be connected.
Ease of Use
Another factor to consider when selecting a KVM switch is ease of use. The switch should be easy to install, configure, and use. The user interface should be intuitive and user-friendly, and the switch should be compatible with a range of operating systems. These switches listed are designed to be easy to use, with intuitive interfaces and straightforward installation processes.
A desktop KVM switch is an indispensable tool for individuals who need to control multiple devices simultaneously. They offer a range of configurations to meet different needs, including support for multiple video inputs and outputs, hotkey switching, USB support, digital displays, and resolutions. We pride ourselves on the expertise of our representatives. Contact Westward Sales today to discover which KVM switch is best for your application.
