ATEN KVMP Switch Boasts Improved Operational Efficiency For Real-Time Monitoring

ATEN Technology has announced the addition of the 4-Port USB 4K HDMI Multi-View KVMP Switch to its Multi-View KVM product series.

Improving operational efficiency of real-time monitoring and control in both Pro AV and IT applications, the CM1284 boundless switch enables users to manage data more efficiently by allowing multiple video sources to be selected, switched and displayed simultaneously with independent keyboard and mouse control.

The solution is ideal for control rooms, surveillance/command centres, as well as programming and post production environments which require constant, seamless switching and control between different computers from multiple systems for real-time critical decision making.

With boundless switching the company's patented technology allows users to switch KVM focus among multiple sources on multiple windows by simply moving the mouse cursor. The solution boasts superior video quality support, with better-defined HDMI connection and video resolutions up to 4K (4096 x 2160 @ 30 Hz); guaranteeing clear and sharp visuals.

Video DynaSync, an exclusive ATEN technology, automatically detects horizontal and vertical offset values of each computer’s display settings and synchronises them with the monitor in use, eliminating boot-up display problems and optimising the resolution when switching among different sources. 

Further, with EDID Expert users can select optimum EDID settings for smooth power-up, high-quality display and use of the best video resolution across different sources — essentially reducing the switching delay, it ensures smooth transition between different sources being displayed on the console monitors.

With dual console output, the solution provides multi-view output and a full screen output, guaranteeing real-time monitoring functionality — multi-view console display modes include: Quad View, Picture in Picture (PiP), Picture by Picture (PbP) and Picture on Picture (PoP).

Other key features include:

  • Daisy chain control and cascade connections – daisy chain up to 3 additional CM1284 units from a single console or cascade up to 2 levels to control 16 computers/video sources
  • Full bass response provides a rich experience for 2.1 channel audio
  • HDCP 1.4 compliant
  • Power on detection and auto scan
  • Multilingual keyboard mapping – supports English, French, Japanese and German keyboards
