The unit has all the features of a standard internal video card including a wide range of refresh rates, resolutions, and color depths. The GUC2015 and its software were designed to have a negligible effect on your computer's overall performance, so there will be little to no noticeable slow down running your applications

Besides the advantages each unit offers individually, when combined, IOGear's GUC2015V and GCS1772, offer an unprecedented degree of video flexibility that cannot be duplicated with standard video cards.
Because the GUC2015U is an externally connected USB video card, it creates two independent video channels from each computer. Simply connect your computer's onboard video to the KVM's VGA connection, then connect the GUC2015U between one of the USB peripheral ports on the KVM and your second monitor.
This configuration allows for several unique video arrangements
1- Extend video across two monitors, you will be able to:
A- Switch the extended views of your computers between two displays B- View half of one extended view on one screen while monitoring half of another computer's extended view on the second screen
2- Clone the same image on each computer, you will be able to:
A- Select the video from either computer and put it on both displays B- Place the video from each computer on its own screen and have the ability to switch keyboard and mouse control to either computer while still viewing the other. 3- Have an extended the view on one computer and a cloned view on the second computer, you will be able to:
A- Monitor a process on half of one computer's extended view while working on the second computer's standard view (in clone configuration)
Since WinXP allows you to configure the relative relationship of the monitors, the two video displays can be orientated horizontally from one computer, and vertically from the other, it is also possible to have different resolutions on each monitor from the same computer.
