The IOGEAR GCS942UW6 is a Hybrid DVI-D KVM with cables and audio. The GCS942UW6 DVI-D Hybrid KVM addresses the problem of connecting a USB mouse and PS/2 keyboard to a KVM. No longer do you need to give up your favorite keyboard or mouse to accommodate a PS/2 or USB only KVM.

In addition to the hybrid connections you can share your desktop speakers and microphone between both computers, plus have the ability to switch them independently from KVM functions. You can make an internet call from one computer while working on a spreadsheet on another computer without skipping a beat. The GCS942UW6 has a selectable rate Auto scan mode to allow hands-off monitoring of your computers which is perfect for the times when you have processes running on both computers, and want to monitor their progress, i.e. a virus scan on one and a disk defragmenting.

Two methods: hot keys, or the One Touch Switch, enable you to switch computers to match the KVM to your style of work rather than the other way round.

The GCS942UW6 can be placed on the floor behind your desk to help minimize desktop clutter while staggered cables lengths aid in taming the cable tangle behind your computers. The one touch switch is small enough to be placed in a handy, out-of-the-way place. The GCS942UW6 has a video resolution to 1920 x 1200@60Hz; DDC2B@ 60 Hz, and the One Touch Switch has LEDs to identify the active port.
