Configurations: MoniSwitch Pro 8 is available in a single configuration that allows sharing of a single monitor, USB mouse and USB keyboard between up to 8 computers. Both video and USB ports are switched simultaneously.
Video Connections: MoniSwitch Pro 8 features standard video connectors to support HD-15 (VGA) PC standard multisync monitors. The MoniSwitch does not limit the possible resolutions of a connected monitor in any way. The super premium video cables included with the MoniSwitch Pro 8 allow direct connection to HD15 (VGA) PC standard video ports that are used on most computers including Apple's Power Mac G3/4s, iMac SE, recent PowerBooks and most PCs.
USB Connections: USB keyboards, mice, hubs and other peripherals are connected directly to the USB "A" I/O port built-in to the MoniSwitch/USB. MoniSwitch Pro 8 also includes standard USB A-B cables to connect to the USB "A" port built-in to the computer or provided by a USB-PCI or USB-CardBus card.
Cabling: MoniSwitch Pro 8 comes with all necessary video and USB cables (2 m, ca. 6 feet long). We have taken special care to choose the highest quality video cable available. Our cables do not degrade image quality in any way nor do they show characteristic shadows in the video image often seen with other cables. These cables are virtually lossless at the frequencies involved and will not further degrade visible image quality beyond what happens in the original cable.
The USB cables also are of excellent quality. Here too, we have taken special care to ensure that your USB devices will function exactly the same through the switch as they would when directly attached to your computer.
Space Saving: MoniSwitch Pro 8 takes space saving to a whole new level. By allowing you to share one monitor, keyboard and mouse between all your computers you can literally reduce multiple desks of equipment to a single area.
Value: The MoniSwitch products allow you to leverage your monitor investment over multiple computers to get the most value out of your display. When compared with purchasing multiple displays the MoniSwitch can save you a lot of money indeed!
Typical Uses: Many people have found different uses for MoniSwitch. Some of the more common include those who are required to use both a Mac and PC. MoniSwitch is also used in server rooms where each computer my only need to be accessed briefly during the day.
Various MoniSwitch models have found their way into companies like Apple, Microsoft and Pixar including two built into Steve Job's desktop setup for MacWorld keynotes for the introduction of Mac OS X.
MoniSwitch reduces the risk of confusion and error that increases when using multiple keyboards, mice and monitors. Obviously, MoniSwitch will save space and will allow redeployment of existing equipment or will save the cost of new equipment in such environments.
Compatibility: MoniSwitch is compatible with any computer compatible with multisync monitors and has a USB port. Most commonly this will include newer Macintosh computers such as the G3s, G4s, iMac SE, USB capable PowerBooks and Intel based PCs running any operating system that supports hot-swappable USB such as Windows 98/2000 and other, emerging operating systems. USB PCI cards can be used to incorporate computers that lack built-in USB ports.
