2 Port KVMP Switch with USB 2.0 Hub and Audio

The   GCS1802 is the latest addition to IOGEAR's market leading KVM product line. It is a 2-port KVMP switch with stereo audio ports and an integra   ted 2-port   USB 2.0 hub. Now users can control two computers and share multiple   USB peripherals from a single keyboard, monitor, and mouse console.

It features the paten   ted asynchronous switching, which allows the user to independently switch applications between the connec   ted computers. You can run an application on one computer while running another application on the other. Moreover, the integra   ted 2-port   USB 2.0 hub is available for each computer to share multiple peripherals connec   ted directly to the hub or via daisy chaining external powered   USB 2.0 hubs. Access to such peripherals is performed on a one-at-a-time basis. Additionally, IOGEAR's Display Emulation Technology* makes the switch intelligent to read and remember the monitor's optimal display parameters and refresh rate.Finally, the audio ports allow for connecting powered PC speakers for stereo sound and a single microphone for audio input/output to each computer.

Switching between computers can be done in three convenient ways: 1) push button port selection loca   ted on the unit's front panel, 2) an On Screen Display (OSD) selection panel, and 3) a "Hotkey" programmable combinations entered from the keyboard.

Setup is fast and easy; simply plug the cables into their appropriate ports. There is no software to configure or install. Also, the included   USB to PS/2 converter permits flexible configurations for the keyboard and mouse.
