The ATEN VS0202 is a 2 port Video Matrix Switch which integrates a video switch, a video splitter, and a speaker together. When the regular video splitter can only distribute a single video signal to multi-monitors and the regular video switch just shows a single video signal at one time,VS0202 allows video and audio signals from 2 separate computers to be routed to 2 monitors, projectors, and speakers independently.
The VS0202 matrix switch is also a signal booster. It allows you to extend the signal transfer distance up about 210 feet with excellent video quality. To provide more outputs, VS0202 can be cascaded itself or regular video splitter (2 levels) for various applications. This video matrix switch is ideal for presentations and applications where information from multiple computers is being delivered to multiple destinations.

Answer: Thank you for your inquiry. Unfortunately, no, this device requires two independent sources and would not add extended desktop functionality to a computer that did not natively support two monitors.
To add the ability to extend your computer across two monitors, you will need to have/add a second video output (most often by adding an additional video card) then configure the operating system to utilize both monitors.
Question: I am able to connect two monitors to each of the PC. And both monitors are able to work in split mode, when one shows one picture, and a second one monitors shows another picture from the same computer. So if both my PC are currently able to split picture on two monitors will this device make the same trick?
Answer: It is possible this unit could take the sources from two different PCs and route them to two different monitors, yes. But, it would only connect to one video output on each computer.
