The AdderView OSD AV4ODSE is an 4-port KVM switch which enables the use of 1 shared keyboard, monitor and mouse to 4 CPUs. The AV4ODSE features an intuitive On Screen Display selection menu which allows you to name all your computers individually. This makes channel selection easy as you no longer have to remember a channel number, just connect by selecting a name. In addition to the AdderView desktop features, AdderView OSD also provides an expansion port that allows remote control operation of the switch. AdderView OSD is a desktop KVM switch but an optional rack mount kit is also available. A multi-function numeric LED display shows you the channel that you are currently connected to, data activity and the power status of the switch.
