IOGEAR introduces the 8-Port Video Switch (GVS881), allowing you to enable up to eight presenters' computers to a projector or VGA display. A wireless remote lets the moderator instantly switch between presenters, eliminating time-wasting plugging and unplugging of cables. When not in use, the remote snaps into the underside of the Switch. Presentations will run smoother and faster. IOGEAR's Video Switch also acts as a signal booster, increasing the distance of the video signal up to 215 feet. The GVS881 is the ideal solution for meetings and conferences with multiple presenters.
