KM Switch Simplifies A Plethora Of Tasks

ATEN Technology’s four-port USB Boundless KM Switch (CS724KM) is allegedly designed to simplify administrative tasks, save space, and increase work productivity in multi-monitor extended desktop environments. The switch is suitable for complex multitasking applications across all industries.


Most hardware devices require users to press buttons or use hotkeys to switch from port to port, however, the 4-port USB Boundless KM Switch requires no user intervention to switch USB signals from computer to computer. Users move the mouse from screen to screen. They can control up to four computers with a single keyboard and mouse, or daisy-chain two switches, enabling control of eight computers from a single console.

A unique feature of the switch is ATEN’s exclusive Boundless Switching technology, which enables users to switch between multiple computers by simply moving the mouse cursor across any of the display borders in any direction to instantly select the target computer and take full control. The function supports extended desktops with up to eight monitors when two switches are daisy-chained, speeding up switching between computers for a smooth and hassle-free user experience. In addition to making multitasking across multiple displays more efficient, this function is especially useful in emergencies that necessitate the immediate monitoring and management of computers.


The switch also provides an intuitive GUI-based configuration utility that allows users to customize their mouse cursor movement paths according to the specific monitor layout at the desktop or workstation. The configuration tool is easy to set up and compatible with Windows operating systems.


ATEN’s 4-port USB Boundless KM Switch is available for $576 with cables included. For greater insights, peruse the CS724KM datasheet.
