HP 1x4 Server Console Switch Delivers Effortless Device Sharing
February 28, 2007 Houston
HP announces the HP 1x4 Server Console Switch, a four-port integrated keyboard, video monitor, and mouse (KVM) system for managing multiple USB and PS2 devices from a single console. One console controls four additional computers and up to three additional USB 2.0 devices. Available in a compact rack-mount or tabletop configuration, the switch supports devices including computers, servers, and peripherals such as printers, scanners, and storage.
With the ideal mix of features, functionality and performance, the HP 1x4 Server Console Switch brings commercial grade quality to small and medium businesses. New high speed USB 2.0 pass-through ability improves data transfer speeds when upgrading applications or operating systems. Flexible mounting allows the switch to work in table top or rack-mount applications. KVM, audio and USB focus can be switched together or independently using intuitive hot-keys for efficient sharing of devices. A system administrator could begin burning a DVD on one system, switch to another system to download a software patch from the Web, while simultaneously listening to an instructional CD playing from the local workstation. The console switch features three USB ports on the front panel to enable USB peripheral device connection. Once connected, these USB peripheral devices can be accessed by up to four of the attached computers. Using a hot key command, the user can select peripheral sharing to the target computer selection.
In addition, the HP 1x4 Server Console Switch supports resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 -- perfect for workstations. For customers with rack mount servers, the switch fits neatly into a standard 19-inch rack.
Sold through Authorized Dealers, the HP 1x4 Server Console Switch is available now with a U.S. Internet price of $229. Pricing may vary by country or region.
