The Adder SmartView Multiscreen SVMS4-QUAD KVM switch expands the horizons of computer control by adding multiple monitor support to an advanced KVM switch. The SVMS4-QUAD enables a keyboard, mouse and 4 monitors to control 4 computers. The Multiscreen is a new concept in KVM switches and enables you to benefit from all the convenience of the proven SmartView switches which taking advantage of the multiple monitor facilities available on many modern computers.
Computers fitted with multiple video cards are becoming more common as operating systems have developed to make use of the extended video "real estate" offered by multiple monitors. The increased display area enables more information to be presented to the user without reducing the resolution. The Multiscreen SVMS4-QUAD enables several computers equipped with these multiple video facilities to be controlled from a keyboard, mouse and an array of monitors. All the monitors and the keyboard and mouse are switched together from one computer to the next giving you full control of the wider picture.
The Adder SVMS4-QUAD maximizes the video quality by minimizing any ghosting, smudging or fading effects. DDC (Display Data Channel) signaling is supported on all the SmartView's video ports making them "plug-and-play" compatible and enabling your computers' video cards to be configured for best performance.
