KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) product maker
Gefen Inc. has announced the release of its ex-tend-it DVI Switcher. It’s a device that lets users manage video and USB connections between multiple computers.
The DVI Switcher enables users to share a single Digital Visual Interface (DVI)-equipped monitor between two computers. DVI is a commonly used interface on many third-party digital flat panel displays and third-party graphics cards, and was once used by Apple on its older digital flat panel displays, too. Gefen noted users of current Apple flat panel displays could use the DVI Switcher in conjunction with the company’s DVI to ADC Conversion Box.
The DVI Switcher also switches USB peripherals and audio connections, and is equipped with a contact-closure remote control port. (Connections can also be made using a key switch.) The DVI Switcher is compatible with both PCs and Macs, as long as they support both USB and DVI interfaces and is rack mountable as well.
