One Keyboard, One Mouse, One Monitor — Multiple Computers; Atlona Launches New HDMI KVM Series Switchers
Atlona Technologies today introduced its HDKVM series of HDMI KVM switchers. The new HDKVM-V21 and HDKVM-V41 allow users to incorporate and switch between multiple computers to one display easily, while utilizing a single keyboard and mouse across all computers.The HDKVM-V21 features two HDMI inputs for two computers while the HDKVM-V41 features four. Both devices offer single or mirror outputs. Switching between computers is easily done through either a push-button on the front panel of the switch, or through hot key selection. Based on the latest HDMI standard, the HDKVM series is capable of fully displaying uncompressed digital video with resolutions up to 1920x1200 or 1080p, and supports the latest digital audio formats up to Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio.
We are very excited to introduce our HDKVM series of HDMI KVM switchers, which are ideal solutions for a number of applications where it is difficult or impossible to use more than one monitor with multiple keyboards or mice, such as the home office, as well as a great tool for graphic design, video editing, programming, and even accounting professionals, said Ilya Khayn, president of Atlona Technologies. In addition, with their compatibility with multiple operating systems, the devices allow quality assurance engineers to quickly switch between workstations running different operating systems where one keyboard, mouse, and display are still in use.
Compatible with Windows®, Linux, and Mac OS®, the HDKVM units are plug-and-play with no software needed, and allow the use of either a USB or a PS2 keyboard and mouse. 3-D capable, the devices support 30/36/48-bit color depth displays and feature an Auto Signal Enhancement feature to improve signal quality for long-distance transmission.
The HDKVM-V21 and HDKVM-V41 are available now at MSRPs of $199.99 and $249.99, respectively.
