Booth SL8006 Apantac is launching a new KM Switch for its openGear platform of solutions. The new OG-KM is a hot swappable card, which the company says opens up many integration possibilities and simplifies system design and installation. The KM Switch allows a user to control and switch seamlessly between four or eight computers with a single keyboard and mouse, including an extended desktop from the same graphics card. Since the OG-KM is part of Apantac’s openGear range of solutions, users can add multiviewer cards from Apantac and create a multiviewer with KVM functionality. The OG-KM switch can be combined with any of the following cards, regardless of whether the input/output required is SDI or HDMI: OG-MiniDE-II cascadable HDMI multiviewer; OG-MiniQ cascadable SDI multiviewer; OG-MicroQ SDI quad-split; and OG-Mini-DL-X-X cascadable HDMI + SDI quad-split.
