Overview

This 4-port KVM switch combines 4K (60Hz) digital display capabilities with control of up to four connected computers.  

4K60 Picture and Full Audio Support 

The DisplayPort KVM switch supports resolutions up to 4K at 60Hz and can drive one large DP display with ease, maximizing viewing space. With support for 7.1 HD digital audio (with supporting displays and sources) and separate 3.5 mm stereo audio, the DisplayPort 1.2 KVM switch delivers full audio compatibility. 

Integrated USB Hub 

The integrated USB 2.0 hub shares two additional peripherals (in addition to keyboard and mouse) among attached computers as if they were directly connected, eliminating the cost of duplicate devices such as printers and scanners. 

PC and Mac Compatible 

While supporting PCs, this DP KVM switch is also compatible with Mac computers using a Mini DisplayPort adapter, including laptops, notebooks, and tablets.  

Simple to Operate 

The front-panel pushbuttons make it easy to switch between systems and activate the auto scan. The hotkey functionality makes accessing each system quick while a buzzer sound confirms the switch.  

StarTech.com offers a wide selection of high-quality KVM switches and KVM-related products to help you access your systems more efficiently without the expense and clutter of extra keyboards, mice and monitors. This USB KVM switch is backed by a 3-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

KVM stands for Keyboard Video Mouse and KVM switches allow you to switch the use of a keyboard, display and mouse between multiple computers.  KVM switches also commonly let you switch audio and USB devices between computers.

There are different types of KVM switches as well.

  • Standard box KVM switches. (e.g. SV231USB)
  • Cable KVM switches. (e.g. SV211USB)
  • Multi-Monitor KVM switches.  (e.g. SV231DDUSB)
  • IP KVM switches. (e.g. SV841HDIE)

Standard box and cable KVM switches are a simple way to switch the use of a keyboard, display, and mouse between multiple computers.  Multi-monitor KVM switches allow you to switch multiple displays between computers, and IP KVM switches allow you to remotely control the KVM switch and connected computers over a network.

Here are some important things to consider before purchasing a KVM switch.

  • How many computers do you need to control?  Purchase a KVM switch that supports the number of computers in your setup.
  • Which video connections do your computers and display(s) support?  It is best practice to use the same video connections wherever possible.
  • Will you be using a PS/2 or USB mouse and keyboard?
  • Do you need multiple monitor support?  Ensure every computer can support the number of monitors you are looking to use in your setup.
  • Do you need audio support?
  • What resolution(s) do you want your display(s) running at?  The KVM switch must support the resolution(s) you want to use.
  • Would you like hotkey support?  Some KVM switches support the use of hotkey combinations to complete tasks such as switching between computers.

There are a couple of other important things you may want to take note of:

  • Some KVM switches require proprietary cables to function.  These KVM cables may vary by each KVM switch.  For StarTech.com KVM switches that require proprietary cables, the KVM switches will either come with these cables, or they will be listed in the Accessories tab on the individual product pages.  For more information, see our video dedicated to KVM switch cables.
  • Basic mice and keyboards are recommended for use with KVM switches.  Wireless, gaming or combo mice and keyboards (mice and keyboards that use a single USB connection / receiver for both units) can cause performance issues, and in general, are not supported for use with KVM switches.

Whether a specific mouse or keyboard will work with StarTech.com KVM switches can depend on the type of mouse or keyboard you use.  Any mice with additional functionality or keyboards that are not standard 104 key keyboards could cause issues.  This includes wireless, gaming, combination (one USB receiver for both the mouse and keyboard), and Apple keyboards.  We recommend that you use a standard wired mouse and keyboard with our KVM switches, especially when you troubleshoot issues.

If you cannot get a specific mouse or keyboard to work with your KVM switch, connect the mouse or keyboard into the USB hub ports, if available (they are marked on the back of the KVM switch). If the KVM switch has hotkey functionality, you will lose the functionality when using these hub ports.

This device outputs DisplayPort video signals. If you have a display or video destination that uses another type of video connection, there are ways that you can convert the video signal or connection. These options are outlined below and organized by the target connection.

Passive and active conversions

The converter that you require depends on the type of DisplayPort video source that you are using. For more information about converting DisplayPort video signals, refer to the following FAQ: https://www.startech.com/faq/DisplayPort_Converter_DP_Multi_Mode.

This device has a DisplayPort input port. If you have a video source that uses another video connection, there are options available to convert the video signal or connection. These options will be outlined below for each video source connection.

Note: You might need to use more than one converter as part of your solution; however, you should try to use the least number of converters and cables to connect your source and destination. If you have the option to convert from multiple source video connections, choose the option that requires the fewest number of conversions.
