Control 2 PCs with a single monitor mouse and keyboard, but drag and drop files between them without the need to switch systems.
StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts has announced the release of the (SKU: SV231UAF) 2 Port USB VGA KVM Switch with File Transfer and PIP – a KVM switch that enables users to control 2 PCs with just one monitor, mouse and keyboard, but still be able to drag and drop files between the two PCs using the unique picture-in-picture (PIP) function.
The KVM Switch features a picture-in-picture function (Windows® only) that allows you to look at the other connected system, while still working on the one in focus. The switch also offers a data link feature that lets you drag and drop files or folders between your connected Windows computers, for quick and easy data transfers.
The SV231UAF is perfect for business users that operate their laptops at multiple locations where files need to be shared between laptop and PC as you can essentially ‘dock’ with your desktop PC and then transfer everything you need to your laptop. This is also the perfect device for call centres, help desks, education environments, and where files are often shared between multiple PCs and can even be connected in a server room to support easy file transfers between the connected server and the technician or admin's laptop.
The SV231UAF even supports stereo sound from both connected machines through one set of speakers and is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
