ATEN International, a leading designer, manufacturer and distributor of advanced communication solutions, expands its PETITE™ series by introducing a 2-port USB 2.0 DVI KVM Switch - the CS682. This new compact KVM switch allows users to control two USB computers from one USB keyboard, one USB mouse and one DVI monitor. Featuring an unbeatable combination of DVI functionality, multiplatform support, and enhanced user-friendly operations, the CS682 allows users to keep up with the latest innovations in desktop multimedia applications.
For a tidy workplace and trouble-free installation, the CS682 features a compact design and two built-in 1.2m cables. Users can switch between the computers via hotkeys or the innovative remote port selector. The CS682 also offers the latest mouse port-switching function that allows users to simply double-click on the scroll wheel of a USB mouse to change ports.
The CS682 is fully compatible with the DVI-Digital standard. It is also equipped with Video DynaSync™ technology, which eliminates any problems occurring during computer boot-up and helps maintain monitor settings, thus optimizing resolution and ensuring the best image quality while switching between ports. Furthermore, the CS682 provides great image quality with a resolution of up to 1920 x 1200 and works seamlessly with the increasingly popular wide-screen LCD displays.
The device is compatible with many platforms, including Windows, Mac, Sun and Linux, as well as Windows 7. In addition, it is audio-enabled, supporting microphones and speakers. With a full bass response, the CS682 provides a rich sound experience for 2.1 surround sound systems. As the KVM and audio focus can be switched independently, users can, for example, listen to audio output on one PC while playing video games or working with office applications on another PC.
'Convenience and product quality is what really counts for every computer user. ATEN International is offering a high quality, state-of-the art switch which is perfect for the SOHO environment. A remote port selector, the DVI standard, Windows 7 support and many other innovative features ensure that CS682 users enjoy comfort while multi-tasking, as well as a superior sound and visual experience' - says Kevin Chen, President of ATEN International.
Another user-friendly feature is power on detection, which allows the CS682 to automatically switch to the other powered-on computer when either is shut down. Furthermore, the CS682's USB 2.0 mouse port can be used for a USB hub and USB peripheral sharing, providing yet more convenience for the desktop user.
