ATEN CS261 Overview

The DVI Single Link Computer Sharing Device from Aten offers a multi-user/single-task experience that enables two users to share the use of a computer from two consoles (monitor, USB keyboard, USB mouse, speakers, and microphone). This sharing device is suitable for small office environments. All programs, files, and resources on the connected computer can be accessed and shared by the two users without the complexity and expense of setting up a network. You can operate the computer on a one by one basis with an optional security feature that can block the video and audio of the console that is not in use. The sharing device provides a convenient OSD (On-Screen Display) menu that allows both consoles to quickly access the connected computer by means of a simple user interface.
