Access & Control up to 8 HDMI or DisplayPort Computers

IOGEAR's 8-Port USB Combo HD & DisplayPort KVM Kit (GCS1808HDPKITU) includes a combo 8-port KVMP switch that allows you to control and access up to eight (8) HDMI™ or DisplayPort computers from a single USB keyboard, mouse, and an HDMI monitor console.

Experience high definition video resolutions up to 1080p (1920 x 1200) while sharing USB 2.0 peripherals and listening to 2.1 stereo surround sound.

Expanded Peripheral Sharing

The KVM Kit is designed to control up to 512 computers by cascading the IOGEAR 8-Port USB HD Switch (GCS1808H) up to three levels. The built-in USB 2.0 hub allows peripheral sharing between the connected system and administrators can easily broadcast messages, announcements, firmware updates, or notifications to all connected sources.

EDID Support

IOGEAR's Video DynaSync™ technology optimizes the display resolution by reading and remembering the monitor's parameters (EDID) so there is no delay or change in video resolution when switching between, or booting computers.

*DynaSync provides EDID support for Windows 10

Simple Switching Methods
