Question: Can this product connect to DVI/HDMI computers?
Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

The Adder AVX5016IP does not have native compatibility with DVI or HDMI. However, it is very easy and inexpensive to adapt the DisplayPort output to DVI or HDMI using adapters i.e.: - DP to HDMI - DP to DVI - full list of our Video Signal adapters including DP to DVI / HDMI.

As an alternative, the Raritan Dominion KX3 supports VGA, DVI, HDMI, and DP, and has the same user / port count. It is more expensive.
