The AdderView Pro AV8PRO-DVI-US is a professional grade KVMA switch delivering ultimate flexibility for users who wish to share a high resolution screen and modern USB peripherals between a multiplicity of computers.

The AV8PRO-DVI is designed to enable eight computers to be controlled from a single high resolution KVM console using either dual link DVI or high definition analogue video links. The switch makes use of Adder's True Emulation technology which enables USB HID devices to be continuously emulated to each computer. This unique technology enables instantaneous and reliable hotkey switching whilst also supporting the extra keys and features of enhanced keyboards and mice. Furthermore, the AdderView includes two independently switchable USB 2.0 channels and an audio channel, giving the user the flexibility to attach selected peripherals to different computers. An advanced OSD completes the professional switching experience.

Two AV8PRO-DVI units can linked together to form a 8 Port Dual-Monitor KVM Switch by using VSC41 link cables.

  • Access up to eight computers with one display, keyboard and mouse
  • High definition dual link DVI-I video up to 2K (2048 x 1080) for film post production or WQXGA (2560 x 1600) for medical imaging

Question: I'm looking for a 12 - 12 input version
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry.

Please contact your KVM Switches Online sales representative directly at 1-877-586-6654 or via our online chat feature to discuss your project in greater detail.

Question: With the AV8PRO-DVI-US, can you connect to multiple computers using a USB cable only to enable using mouse and keyboard on the various computers? The reason I ask is we currently have an older VGA/PS2 KVM switch which uses a special VGA cable combined with a USB and PS2 connection and we only use the USB connection to connect to the computers and the VGA connection to the KVM switch and I would like to minimize cable clutter by using a straight USB cable.
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

You can indeed use simple stand-alone USB A to B cables, like Adders VSC24 (6ft) and VSC29 (16ft), to enable mouse and keyboard on the sources.

To reduce cable clutter, Adder also sells similar combined DVI + USB KVM cables (without PS2 connector) for use with the AV8PRO-DVI - VSCD3 (6ft) and VSCD4 (16ft) - which you can optionally passively adapt to VGA using Adder VSA11 adapters.

Note, If you are looking for a switch for a video wall that doesn't require video switching at all, you may also be interested in a Keyboard Mouse Switch, like Adders CCS-PRO8.
