ATEN's new 8-port Master View, CL1758, is a control unit that allows access to multiple computers from a single KVM (keyboard, monitor, and mouse), console. A single CL1758 can control up to 8 PS/2 or USB computers. Cascading to three levels of CS1758s, CL1758 can control up to 512 PS/2 or USB computers.

The CL1758 offers a space-saving, streamlined approach to KVM switch technology by integrating a keyboard, LCD monitor, and touchpad in a 1U Slideaway housing. The LCD display is built into the cover; the keyboard and touchpad are built into the base. Setup is fast and easy; simply plug cables into their appropriate ports. There is no software to configure, no installation routines, and no incompatibility problem. Slide the KVM module section out; flip the cover up; and you are ready to go to work. When finished, flip the cover down and slide the KVM module away.

For further convenience and flexibility, the switch also supports an external keyboard, monitor, and mouse console that allow the second user access remotely or locally. Work with ATEN's IP access unit (CN5000), you can control attached computers anywhere around the world.

There is no better way to save time and money than with a CL1758 installation. By using the CL1758 to manage your installation, you: (1) eliminate the expense of having to purchase a separate keyboard, monitor, and mouse for each computer; (2) save all the space those extra components would take up; (3) save the space that a keyboard, monitor, and mouse would take with a standard KVM switch; (4) save on energy costs; and (5) eliminate the inconvenience and wasted effort involved in constantly moving from one computer to another.

The following equipment must be installed on each computer:
