IOGEAR’s KVM Product Suite Adopts Enhanced Peripheral Sharing and Higher Resolutions [04-29-2008]

New devices ideal for gaming, graphics design and small and home office users

Irvine, CA – April 29, 2008 – Consumers can now not only share multiple computers and USB 2.0 peripherals with IOGEAR’s latest additions to its KVM product line, but also view graphics in optimal quality. These new products offer simple, easy to use and complete out-of-the-box solutions. IOGEAR’s 2- and 4-Port KVMP Switches with USB 2.0 hub and 2.1 Stereo (GCS1802 $199.95 and GCS1804 $299.95 MSRP) allow small and home office users to share USB 2.0 peripherals, such as printers and scanners, with multiple computers. By controlling several machines with a single keyboard and mouse, and using one monitor, individuals can create cleaner, more organized workstations while reducing energy consumption. Audio enthusiasts can also listen to favorite songs, programs and audio clips in high-quality through PC speakers, as the products support 2.1 stereo sound. Ideal for avid gamers and graphic designers, IOGEAR’s 4-Port Dual-Link DVI KVMP Switch (GCS1204 $449.95 MSRP) supports up to 3840 X 2400 resolutions. The device allows for easy viewing of intense graphics that may normally appear distorted and blurry with lesser resolutions. All products feature the patented asynchronous switching, enabling individuals to independently alternate applications between the connected computers. Users can run one application on one machine and work out of a different program on the other, viewing a movie while they update a presentation. The solutions also support Display Emulation Technology, which remembers the monitor’s parameters to maintain the best settings when changing between machines. “At IOGEAR, we continue to expand our KVM offerings to satisfy our customers’ pain points,” said Miranda Su, executive vice president at IOGEAR. “These additions to our KVM product family cater to specific users’ needs, allowing them to have complete, organized work and gaming environments.” IOGEAR strives to be an eco-conscious company, with its KVM solutions leading its GREEN initiative. IOGEAR’s KVM products reduce energy consumption by eliminating the use of multiple computer monitors and peripherals. To date, the company has sold more than three million switches, saving 28.8 million keyboards, mice and monitors from filling a landfill 165 feet high. IOGEAR also just recently partnered with Trees for the Future, a US-based non-profit organization devoted to supporting the redevelopment of agricultural land in developing countries by planting trees. IOGEAR will plant a tree for every product sold on its Web site or by members of its GREEN initiative partner program, with a goal of planting one million trees. Each of these products is available immediately from all major catalog and online resellers, as well as select retail outlets.
