Add a Mouse and Keyboard to Your Xbox 360 or PS3

Although up until now they have been more or less just niche products, designed to be used solely in certain specific situations, the popularity of KVM switches might actually increase in the future, due to IOGEAR’s innovations in this field. Thus, at this year’s CES, the company, a traditional manufacturer of various connectivity solutions and adapters, launched a brand new series of switches, which, besides all of the features we’ve already grown accustomed to, provide HDMI 1.3b and HDCP support.
Besides the HDMI interface mentioned above, the new 2- and 4-Port HDMI KVM Switches support video resolutions of up to 1080p (full HD), as well as Dolby True HD and DTS HD Master Audio, which makes them especially suitable to be used with gaming consoles (allowing gamers, for example, to easily add keyboard and mouse functionality to their video gaming consoles, which, in essence, are nothing more than computing systems).
Furthermore, the fresh switches also feature IOGEAR’s Display Emulation Technology that memorizes a certain display’s parameters in order to preserve video resolution when switching between PCs, as well as two USB 2.0 ports for adding various peripherals.
Aside from the two gaming-oriented products mentioned above, IOGEAR also introduced the 4-Port DualView Dual-Link DVI KVMP Switch, a device meant for graphic designers. The switch allows graphic designers to easily work from DualView displays, while viewing pictures in resolutions even above 1080p, and can prove equally beneficial for special effects artists.
The fact that these products might actually represent a serious step forward for the field of KVM switches is also confirmed by Miranda Su, executive vice president at IOGEAR, who declared that “IOGEAR was founded on our revolutionary KVM technology and we continue to expand this product line to meet the needs of all types of consumers. These products’ innovative features allow gamers and graphic artists to create seamless, multi-computer workstations that support the best resolutions and highest-quality audio.”
