Question: I cannot seem to think of a reason why it should not be able to, but one never knows, so I would like to know if there is any reason or any circumstance where this device (the Icron 4-port USB 2.0 Extender for CAT5) should/would/could not be able to be used with a USB KVM switcher so that keyboard and mouse can control multiple computers (via the proper switch and path being engaged) from a lectern/podium? I am presented with this situation all the time and am building my own setup and am interested in whether or not this device will suit my needs. Thank you!
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This device provides transparent USB extension (the signal is not changed) and does not require any software, so it should work as you desire.

Having said that, there are other factors that might impact compatibility - specifically the type/brand of KVM and type of keyboard and mouse in use. Please contact your KVM Switches Online representative at 1-877-586-6654 or via our online chat to discuss your project in greater detail.
