The CS724KM features various innovative port selection methods. Users can switch between the connected computers via front panel pushbutton, keyboard hotkey, mouse cursor, mouse wheel, and RS-232 commands. The mouse cursor method adopts ATEN’s exclusive Boundless Switching technology, which provides an intuitive way to switch control to another computer by simply moving your mouse cursor across a screen border and onto the target computer display. Move the mouse cursor in any direction to switch the control focus without limitations.
The CS724KM’s Boundless Switching function supports extended desktops with up to four monitors (one per computer), and up to eight monitors when two switches are daisy-chained, expediting the process of switching between computers for a smooth and hassle-free user experience. In addition to making multitasking across multiple displays more efficient, this function is especially useful in emergencies that necessitate the immediate monitoring and management of computers.
The CS724KM also provides an intuitive 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.
Further advanced features of the CS724KM include bus-power mode which means no external power adapter is required, as well as independent switching of the keyboard/mouse, USB peripheral, and audio focus via hotkeys. With a rich feature set, the CS724KM is designed to simplify administrative tasks, save space, and increase work productivity in multi-monitor extended desktop environments, and is especially suitable for complex multitasking applications in control rooms in any industry.
