Content

  • What is a KVM?

  • Types of KVM

  • What is a software KVM?

  • What is a hardware KVM?

What is a kvm?

  • KVM is an abbreviation for Keyboard,Video and Mouse

  • Control multiple computers using a single monitor, keyboard and mouse (standard)

  • Connect multiple monitors, keyboards and mice to a single computer (reverse)


Types of kvm

What is a software KVM

A software KVM is very similar to a hardware KVM however:

A software KVM generally cannot share a monitor, only the keyboard and mouse

A software KVM does not require external hardware and can run on any existing network

One of the best software KVMs (synergy) costs $0.00 and is completely open source


What is a hardware KVM?

This is a hardware KVM

Computer Selector

Console Keyboard and Mouse

Console Monitor

Client Keyboard and Mouse

Client Monitor

Power


the difference between passive and active

  • A passive KVM switch changes the keyboard, video and mouse to interact with each computer by using a hardware switch or knob.

  • An active KVM switch changes the keyboard, video and mouse to interact with each computer by using an electronic switch (either a button on the KVM or a keyboard shortcut)


the difference between passive and active (cont.)

In short,

Passive = Mechanical

Active = Electronic




Summary

If you need to control more than one computer using the same keyboard, mouse and monitor

Or

If you need to have more than one active user on a single computer

Or

If your desk looks like this…


Then a KVM could be of benefit to you
