ADDERView 4 Port DVI KVM Switch EOL


The Digital Visual Interface is the next generation in display technology.

Over the years computers have got more and more powerful, and are taking up less and less space. Until recently the same could not be said of display technology. The traditional CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) style of monitor is basically the same as is used in your TV. This ensured that computer monitors often took up a quarter of your deskspace! Plus the system inherently suffers from at least some level of distortion. With the latest flatscreen technology, images are transferred digitally from a DVI enabled computer. The picture is made up from thousands of discrete pixels ensuring picture perfect, very high resolution image control.

The Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is the new standard for this form of image transfer.

The ADDERView DVI is the world's first electronic KVM switch to allow full access to this exciting new technology.

Keyboard and mouse ports use 6 pin mini-DIN female connectors. Video ports use standard 24-way DVI-D connectors. Options port is side mounted and uses 15-way standard D-type connector with proprietary pin allocation. DC power connector provided for video-only and other special applications where interface powering is not possible.

Computer Selection

Computers may be selected using the front panel key, keyboard hotkeys, a three-button mouse or wheel mouse, RS232 data commands or the optional remote controller. The hotkeys are selectable and are designed to be quick-fire using a minimum number of key presses. The mouse may be used to select the next or previous computer by holding down the centre button whilst pressing the left or right button. Both keyboard hotkey and mouse switching may be independently disabled if required. When cycling through channels using the mouse or the hotkeys the user may configure the ADDERView to select all ports or just the ports that have powered PCs attached. RS232 switching is useful for automated operation and the remote controller provides a convenient control method without locating the ADDERView on the desk.
