Expanded Connectivity

IOGEAR's 16-Port USB HDMI KVMP Switch is designed to control up to 256 computers by cascading two levels of the GCS1816H. The built-in USB 2.0 hub allows peripheral sharing between the connected system and is backwards compatible with USB 1.1. Administrators can easily broadcast messages, announcements, firmware updates, or notifications to all connected sources.

EDID Support

IOGEAR's Video DynaSync™ technology optimizes the display resolution by reading and remembering the monitor's parameters (EDID) so there is no delay or change in video resolution when switching between or booting computers.

Simple Switching Methods

Easily switch between connected computers by either manually pressing the front panel pushbuttons, entering hotkey combinations from the keyboard, or via the On-Screen Display (OSD) system. The KVM's convenient Auto-Scan feature permits automatic scanning and monitoring of activities on all connected devices.

2.1 Surround Sound

This 16-port HDMI KVMP switch provides 2.1 audio support allowing you to enjoy stereo surround sound through connected speakers.
