2-port DisplayPort KVM Switch

StarTech has released the 2-port DisplayPort KVM Switch, a new device for controlling up to two computers using monitors with full-size DisplayPort connectors from a single keyboard. The switch is designed for multimedia apps first and supports 7.1-channel surround as well as a maximum display resolution of 3840x2400 when used at a reduced refresh rate. It can be controlled using either hotkeys or on-switch buttons.

For peripherals, the switch carries three USB ports to share between the two attached machines. It recognizes both Macs and Windows PCs, although Macs will need a display adapter to link up with the larger DisplayPort connector. Regardless, StarTech's peripheral is DDC2B compliant and should treat shared displays as though they were directly connected on a given computer.

Buyers can find the $220 KVM either on the company's website or at some retail shops.
