IOGEAR Cuts Clutter From Dual PC Use With New KVM Switch

Molded Cables, Compact Design and Remote Port Selector Spare Users From

Desktop Disorder



Aug 13, 2007, 01:00 ET from IOGEAR, Inc.

    IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Two computers can now share one
 Digital Video Interface (DVI) monitor, PS/2 mouse and keyboard, speaker set
 and microphone thanks to IOGEAR's new MiniView(TM) Micro DVI PS/2 KVM
 Switch (GCS92). The product incorporates a new molded, asymmetrical cabling
 design, as well as one-tap and independent switching features. Now, in
 order to alternate between PCs, users only need to press a small
 push-button that can be placed on their desk, minimizing clutter by not
 requiring the entire unit to sit directly on the desktop.
     The device also provides independent KVM and audio switching via hot
 keys, enabling users to toggle separately between audio functionality and
 CPUs. With this feature, a user can play music on one computer, while
 working on the other. It also includes molded, asymmetrical cables to
 prevent cord disorder behind the computer closest to the KVM, and allow it
 to be stored out of sight.
     "Since introducing our first KVM switch to the market in 1999, we have
 continued to launch new switches, each with its own innovative features,"
 said Miranda Su, vice president of sales and marketing at IOGEAR. "The
 MiniView Micro DVI PS/2 KVM Switch is unique to our other KVM offerings
 with its compact design and remote port switching, enabling it to be
 connected and in use behind the work area. In addition, its asymmetrical
 cables further simplify set-up by minimizing congestion behind the CPU."
     The self-powered switch provides plug-and-play support for 32 bit color
 at video resolutions up to 1600 X 1200 @ 60Hz, and its PS/2 mouse and
 keyboard emulation ensures uninterrupted operation when switching between
 PCs.
     The product is compatible with Microsoft Windows and Sun operating
 platforms, and is priced at $159.95 (MSRP). It is available immediately
 from all major catalog and online resellers, as well as selected retail
 outlets, and comes with IOGEAR's standard three-year warranty.
