Connects 8 HDMI-Enabled Devices to a Single 4K Monitor, Keyboard and Mouse
This rack-mount KVM switch lets you access, control, boot and reboot up to eight computers or other devices with 4K HDMI ports at the same time. In addition to desktop and notebook computers, the switch also connects up to eight 4K media centers, gaming systems, Blu-ray and DVD players, cable and satellite boxes, DVRs and other HDMI-enabled devices. All eight computers share one 4K HDMI monitor, USB keyboard and USB mouse, which saves space on your desk or workspace.
Connect up to 512 Computers to One Original Console
You can also cascade up to three levels of B024-H4U08 KVM switches, allowing centralized access to as many as 512 computers using a single monitor, keyboard and mouse.
Switching Between Computers Is Fast and Easy
Use the front-panel push buttons, hotkey commands or multi-lingual On-Screen Display (OSD) with text-based interface for quick and easy toggling between computers. Or you can use Auto Scan mode to scan all connected computers in five-second intervals automatically. Orange LEDs indicate which computer is currently selected.
Cables Are Included for Fast and Simple Setup
Connect your 4K HDMI monitor, keyboard, mouse, and speakers to the switch’s console ports. Then, use the included 4K HDMI/USB KVM cable kits to connect your computers to the KVM switch. The plug-and-play B024-H4U08 requires no drivers, so you can connect and use it immediately. It works with all major operating systems, including Windows, Mac, Linux, UNIX and Novell.
USB Hub Lets You Share Peripherals between Computers
The built-in USB 3.2 Gen 1 hub allows you to share two USB-A peripherals, such as printers, hard drives, scanners, webcams and flash drives, between all connected computers. Both USB ports support data transfer speeds up to 5 Gbps. Because the USB ports operate independently, you can print documents from one computer while working on a different computer. The hub is backward compatible with previous USB generations. Green LEDs indicate which computer is using the connected USB device.
Transmits True 4K Video and Digital Audio
The B024-H4U08 supports Ultra HD video resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 at 60 Hz with 2.1-channel surround sound audio. With independent audio switching, you can listen to music or other audio from one computer while working on a different computer. The front-panel audio jack has priority over the rear-panel jacks.
Stack Units to Expand Your Workstation and Enhance Your Productivity
Stack as many as eight B024-H4U08 KVM switches to take advantage of multi-display mode. Depending on the number of stages in your stack, your installation may offer dual-display, triple-display, quad-display or multi-display scenarios, up to eight stages.
Designed for Convenient Mounting with Included Hardware
The heavy-duty metal housing comes with mounting hardware for 1U installation in an EIA-standard 19-inch rack. It also allows desktop deployment on included rubber feet that help prevent the unit from sliding. The included power supply comes with international power cords for connecting to an AC power source.
TAA-Compliant for GSA Schedule Purchases
The B024-H4U08 is compliant with the Federal Trade Agreements Act (TAA), which makes it eligible for GSA (General Services Administration) Schedule and other federal procurement contracts.
