Adder AdderView Pro 4-port DisplayPort KVM
The AdderView Pro AV4PRO-DP is designed to enable four computers equipped with Display Port technology to be controlled from a single KVM console. This unit makes use of Adder's True Emulation Technology which enables USB HID, low and full speed, devices to be continuously emulated to each computer providing instantaneous and reliable hotkey switching. Furthermore, this AdderView Pro 4-port includes two independently switchable USB 2.0 channels and an audio channel, giving the user the flexibility to attach your keyboard and mouse peripherals to different computers. An 'Options' port enables this unit to be remotely switched using a 4 button switch unit (RC4).
Two AV4PRO-DP units can linked together to create a 4 Port Dual Monitor DisplayPort KVM switch by using a VSC41 synchronising cable.

Answer: You are describing what is called a KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch, of which the AV4PRO-DP-US is one. Whether it is the appropriate solution for your situation depends on a number of factors including the type of display being connected and type of peripherals used.
This particular KVM is for switching 4 computers using a USB keyboard and mouse and a DisplayPort video connection. Depending on your need, there may be less expensive solutions available. If you are not sure of the exact product you require, give us a call at 1-877-586-6654.

Question: I would like to purchase a product that allows two PCs to be controled by Two monitor, one keyboard, and one mouse.Can you help me to choose appropriate product
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Your choice of KVM switch will depend largely on the peripheral connections that you require. You will be looking for a 2-port KVM that supports dual monitors. The next question is, what type of video connection do you need (DVI, VGA, HDMI, DisplayPort) and what type of keyboard and mouse connection you need (USB, PS/2).

Question: Does this work better at DisplayPort switching than the Aten CS1944?
Answer: Adder switches are high quality, and many consider them to be superior. Radiologists will often go with Adder over other brands for the high resolution and image quality available through the Adder switches.
Question: I would ask the same question someone asked about a different model: Are the connections to the computers persistent? In other words, if the kvm is switched to system 2 from system 1, will the OS on system 1 still see a Displayport monitor still connected?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. While this particular KVM provides USB keyboard and mouse emulation, it does not provide continuous EDID or emulation for the monitor. When focus is changed, it will appear as if the monitor has been unplugged from the non-active system. Unfortunatly, this is due to the complexity of the DisplayPort signal.
Question: I have 2 HP Computers that each have a dedicated monitor. I want to be able to switch back and forth from one PC to the other using a KVM switch. I only want one mouse/keyboard for both PC's. I suppose I can either use VGA or display port - if display port provides better quality, I want to use that one.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. DisplyPort generally provides higher resolutions than VGA. For instance, this switch can output 2560 x 1920 while the VGA version (https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/av4pro-vga.html)can output 1920 x 1440. Outside of the resolution, performance for these two devices should be pretty similar.
If both PC's have there own monitor, another device that may be of interest is the CCS4USB-US Adder Command & Control Switch with free flow technology (a href='https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/ccs4usb-us.html'>https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/ccs4usb-us.html). It allows the KVM focus to be changed by simply moving the mouse over to the next monitor.
Question: Is this a SECURE KVM? IT will be used for government highly sensitive data
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. This unit is not a "secure KVM" that meets the requirements for NIAP Validation to either EAL4+ or EAL2+ certification levels.
Some certified secure 4-port KVMs are located here: https://www.kvm-switches-online.com/secure-4-port.html. If you would like assistance in selecting your secure KVM, please give us a call at 1-877-586-6654 or contact us through our chat feature. We would love to help.
Question: What refresh rate can this support at 2560x1920?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
The Adder AV4PRO-DP-US supports 2560x1920 resolution up to a refresh rate of right around 50Hz.
Question: I'd like a KVM switch that allows four computers to be control by one keyboard one mouse and allows the four video outputs to go directly to four 4 k screens DisplayPort without going through the 4 port KVM switch?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,
It sounds like you may be looking for a 4 Port Keyboard & Mouse (KM) switch such as the Adder CCS-PRO4-US Command &Control Switch? A KM Switch is the same concept as a KVM switch, but without the video signal transmission / switching.
