The two port GCS932UB Mini View Micro USB DVI + Audio KVM switch from IOGEAR represents a simple method for sharing one DVI monitor, Mouse, Keyboard, Speaker set and Microphone between two computers. The GCS932UB employs two switching methods. A simple remote switch that allows one tap switching, and it's remarkably small size allows placement in any convenient location on your desk. The second method is by hotkeys which allows you to independently switch control and audio functions between computers. The GCS932UB supports 32 bit color at resolutions to 1920 X 1200 @ 60 Hz, it is self powered and its mouse and keyboard emulation ensure uninterrupted operation when switching computers.
