The IOGEAR 8-Port 17" LCD Combo KVM Switch integrates a keyboard, an 8-port KVM switch, a 17" TFT LCD active matrix monitor, and a touchpad in a universal 1 RU rack mount space, and is compatible with Windows, Mac, Sun Solaris, and Linux platforms. The 8-port KVM (keyboard, video, and mouse) switch can be connected to eight VGA, USB, or PS/2 ports. In addition, up to eight additional compatible KVM switches can be cascaded together, allowing you to control up to 128 computers from a single KVM console. This KVM switch is compliant with the Trade Agreements Act (TAA).
Equipped with an additional USB / PS/2 port on the rear panel, the 17" LCD Combo Console allows you to manage the KVM switch from an external console (monitor, keyboard, and mouse), and supports an external USB mouse. The front panel push button LEDs, an intuitive OSD (On-Screen Display), and the hotkeys enable you to quickly access a given computer. In addition, the OSD comes with two-level password protection for enhanced security.
The 17" LCD Combo Console's depth can be easily adjusted, allowing it to fit racks of different sizes. With a 1280 x 1024 resolution, the monitor displays clear and crisp images. With DDC emulation, the video settings of each computer are automatically adjusted for optimal output to the monitor. Featuring an auto-sensing function, custom ASIC helps recognize the position of each station on the installation. The console fully supports the DDC2B protocol.
