The SmartView Multiscreen SVMS4DVI-QUAD DVI Video Switch is an advanced DVI KVM switch that enables 4 computers to be controlled by a shared keyboard, mouse and DVI (Digital Visual Interface) display system. The SVMS4DVI-QUAD enables a keyboard, mouse and 4 DVI monitors to control 4 computers.  Each computer may supply two DVI signals and the display system may consist of up to four separate DVI monitors or a single very high resolution DVI display being fed by several DVI signals.

The SVMS4DVI-QUAD supports the Digital Video Interface which ensures pixel perfect display accuracy and superb quality crystal clear video pictures. The ability to drive multiple monitors or feed multiple DVI links to very high resolution monitors makes the Multiscreen DVI suitable for a wide range of diverse applications from banking and security to geographic mapping and medical imaging.

The SmartView Multiscreen supports standard PC style (PS/2) keyboard and mouse connections.  Adder's CCUSB and CCSUN cables may be used to connect the switch to computers with USB or Sun (8 pin round) keyboard and mouse connectors.  The Multiscreen DVI may be synchronized with other Adder analogue, DVI and Multiscreen products to support applications that require synchronous switching of large numbers of video channels.
