ATEN CS1744 4-Port Dual-View KVM Switch
The Dual-View CS1744 USB KVM Switch brings dual head video functionality to ATEN's USB KVM switch technology. Now, four dual-display computers can be accessed and controlled from a single console that consists of a USB keyboard, USB mouse, and two VGA, SVGA, or Multisync monitors. In addition, the CS1744 incorporates a two port USB hub that allows each of the computers to share any USB peripherals connected to the hub on a one computer at a time basis. Recognizing the importance of sound, the switches are also audio-enabled. A single microphone can provide audio input to each of the computers, and you can listen to the audio output of each computer on a single set of speakers (on a one-at-a-time basis).
