The MasterView CS1764 DVI KVM switch charts a revolutionary new direction in KVM switch functionality by combining a 4-port KVM switch with a 4-port USB hub at the same time as it provides an interface for a digital monitor (DVI).

As a KVM switch, it allows users to access four computers from a single USB keyboard, USB mouse, and monitor console. As a USB hub, it permits each computer to access any peripherals connected to the hub on a 'one computer at a time' basis.

The CS1764's independent (asynchronous) switching feature allows the KVM focus to be on one computer while the USB peripheral focus is on another. This eliminates the need to purchase a separate USB hub as well as the need to purchase separate stand-alone peripheral sharers - such as printer servers, modem splitters, etc.

The CS1764 further improves on previous designs with DVI (Digital Visual Interface) connectors, and the transfer of keyboard and mouse data to the computers via a fast, reliable USB connection. DVI supports both digital input (flat panel displays, data projectors, plasma displays, digital TVs and set-top boxes) and analog video input (traditional monitors and TVs).
