Finally, a simple and affordable answer to every network administrator's biggest annoyance: finding and lugging around "crash carts" with monitor, keyboard and mouse to administer servers and other headless machines. Epiphan Systems' KVM2USB product is a compact device that conveys the VGA stream from any host computer to a laptop, while emulating the laptop's keyboard and mouse outputs.
Think of it as a truly portable crash cart. Now, all you need to take with you on administrative site visits is your laptop, KVM2USB (roughly the size of a box of paperclips) and the accompanying cable.
KVM2USB works with virtually any computerized machine or embedded system, including:
Windows, Macintosh, Unix computers and servers
Medical devices, scientific and lab equipment
Slot machines and VLTs
The product provides a simple, lightweight and rapid means of conveying VGA images from host machines to a laptop and simulating the laptop's keyboard and mouse outputs. This allows administrators and technicians to quickly and easily connect to and administer headless machines without hassles.
As a compact external device, KVM2USB is easy to use and to transport. About the size of a box of paperclips, it is easily plugged in and requires no additional power, so you don't have to locate a spare electrical outlet onsite.
The product ships complete with all required hardware and cabling. Software development kits are also available for specialized applications.
