KVM Switch

What is KVM?

KVM is the acronym for Keyboard, Video, Mouse. More specifically, multiple computers are connected to the KVM and controlled from a single set of keyboard, monitor and mouse. Although there are multiple computers connected the KVM, however only one can be controlled at a time. Control of each computer is done separately via the use of switches on the KVM. It does this by fooling each computer into thinking that it is currently actively connected to a separate keyboard, mouse, and monitor. Since the KVM incorporates only a single set of keyboard, monitor and mouse, it saves space, cuts cost as well as increase the efficiency of work done. Along with the ease of control, it saves time and adds valuable flexibility to the whole system.
