    Question: I heard from our supplier UTE in Germany, that the SE-DVI-8ARS is discontinued. Have you got another 8 port device e.g. DP++ port's? Important for us are the same RS232 interfacing/commands to switch between the monitors. What about VIDMUX SE-15V-16-L-RS is it discontinued too?
    Answer: Thank you for your inquiry,

    The NTI SE-DVI-ARS is indeed obsolete. We will update our site reflecting that change.

    The similar NTI SE-15V-16-L-RS (VGA + RS232) is still available, and can work with DVI and DisplayPort using VGA Video Adapters.

    We do also have KVM solutions with DP++ capability. For a recommendation based on your application, please feel free contact your KVM Switches Online sales representative directly.

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with.
