IOGEAR MiniView™ GCS12DP Dual Platform KVM Switch - 2 Port MiniView PC & Mac KVM Switch

Managing a multi-platform computer configuration is no small task, which is why we put together the MiniView™ DP package - the marriage of IOGEAR's two-port MiniView™ KVM switch (GCS12DP) and Mac-PS/2 converter. With the MiniView™ DP, your single keyboard, mouse and monitor can be used to control both a Macintosh and a PC. Both devices are compact in design and perfect for convenient desktop placement. Enjoy ultra high resolution, up to 1920 x 1440, thanks to our patented VSE Video Signal Enhancement® technology, while mouse and keyboard emulation ensures smooth port switching every time. IOGEAR's MiniView™ products are all complete KVM solutions, which means you'll find all the necessary cables and adapters for a hassle-free installation.

Cables included!
