8-Port DVI & VGA KVMP Switch

IOGEAR's 8-port USB DVI VGA KVMP Switch allows access and control of up to 8 computers from a single USB keyboard, USB mouse, and either a DVI or VGA monitor console. Experience superior Dual-Link video resolution up to 2560x1600 with the freedom of choosing either DVI or VGA interface.

Expanded Connectivity

Control a connection of up to 512 computers by cascading 3 levels of this 8-Port USB DVI & VGA KVMP from a set of console. The built-in USB 2.0 hub allows peripheral sharing between the connected system, backwards compatible with USB 1.1.

4K UHD Resolution

Achieve 3840 x 2160 @30Hz 4K UHD Resolution with this Dual-Link DVI KVM Switch using IOGEAR’s 4K HDMI to DVI-D Converter Cable GHDDVIC4K3. With this reversible 4K cable, you may use 4K source and project to 4K monitors, without the need to upgrade your Dual-Link DVI KVM switch setup.

EDID Support

IOGEAR's Video DynaSync™ technology optimizes the display resolution. DynaSync*'s technology reads and remembers the monitor's parameters (EDID) so there is no delay or change of video resolution when switching between, or booting computers. Simplify your centralized connectivity!
