8-port USB HDMI KVMP switch 

CS1798 8-port USB HDMI KVM switch is a multi-purpose appliance that consolidates access and control of up to 8 HDMI computers from a single USB keyboard, USB mouse, and monitor console.

CS1798 can be cascaded up to three levels – to control up to 512 computers – all from a single console.

In addition CS1798 features multi-display functionality, which enables the use of standard USB cables to stack up to eight switches in a multi-display installation where each computer is fitted with multiple video cards. It allows you to contrast, analyse and monitor video output in convenient ways, substantially simplifying the working environment.

Furthermore, CS1798 comes with ATEN's on-screen display (OSD) function, which can access any computer connected to the installation, it also offers OSD configuration backup/restore to save/back up the OSD settings and restore them as needed.

There are three convenient methods to access any computer connected to the installation:
(1) using the pushbutton port selection switches located on each unit's front panel;
(2) entering Hotkey combinations from the keyboard; and
(3) selecting from menus provided by the on-screen display (OSD).

An Auto Scan feature also permits automatic scanning and monitoring of all computers on the installation, one by one.

CS1798 provides multimedia keyboard support and is audio enabled. You can listen to the audio output of each computer on two sets of speakers (on a one at- a-time basis).

Setup is fast and easy. Simply plug cables into their appropriate ports. There is no software to configure, no installation routines, and no incompatibility problems. Since CS1798 intercepts keyboard input directly, it works on multiple operating platforms (PC compatible, Mac*, Sun*, etc.).

Since a single console manages all of the computers on your installation, a CS1798 KVM switch setup:
(1) eliminates the expense of having to purchase a separate keyboard, monitor, and mouse for each computer;
(2) saves all the space extra components take up;
(3) saves on energy costs; and
(4) eliminates the inconvenience and wasted effort involved in constantly moving from one computer to another.
