USB-C to HDMI & USB KVM Switch Adapter

While there aren't many USB-C based KVM Switches currently available, you can use simple readily available USB-C docking stations or USB-C video adapters to connect USB-C based PC, server, phone, tablet, or workstation sources to KVM Switches based on other video standards such as HDMI.

For example, you can use a USB-C to HDMI & USB-A hub like the one pictured above, and connect the KVM Cable directly into it.
