August 15, 2018 – ATEN Technology announced its 4-port USB Boundless KM Switch (CS724KM). Designed to simplify administrative tasks 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. Users can control up to four computers with a single keyboard and mouse, or daisy-chain two switches, enabling control of up to eight computers from a single console. A feature of the switch is ATEN’s Boundless Switching technology, which enables users to switch between multiple computers in multi-monitor extended desktops by moving the mouse cursor across any of the display borders in any direction to instantly select the target computer and take full control.
The Boundless Switching function supports extended desktops with up to eight monitors when two switches are daisy-chained, speeding up switching between computers. In addition to making multitasking across multiple displays more efficient, this function is useful in emergencies that necessitate the immediate monitoring and management of computers. The 4-port USB Boundless KM Switch also provides a 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.
