Two-user (2-port), single-tasking USB-DVI computer sharing device
CS261 is a powerful, micro-processor controlled computer sharing device. It is a multi-user/single-task device that enables two users to share the use of a computer from two consoles (DVI monitor, USB keyboard, USB mouse, speakers and microphone).
CS261 is ideal for small office environments. All programs, files and resources on the connected computer can be accessed and shared by the two users without the complexity and expense of setting up a network. Users operate the computer on a one by one basis with an optional security feature that can block the video and audio of the console that is not in use.
CS261 provides a convenient OSD (On Screen Display) menu that allows both consoles to quickly access the connected computer by means of a simple user interface.
Setup is fast and easy; plugging cables into their appropriate ports is all that is entailed. There is no software to configure, so there is no need to get involved in complex software installation routines or be concerned with incompatibility problems.
Because the CS261 intercepts keyboard input directly, it works on any hardware platform and with all operating systems.
Responding to the growing use of audio input/output in the workstation space, the CS261 has been designed with built in microphone and speaker support, as well.
