Hybrid workspaces get flexible with Aten KVM switch

Aten Technology is targeting hybrid workers with a new 2-port USB-C DisplayPort Hybrid Cable KVM switch.

The CS52DP has the power of a cable KVM switch and the mobility of USB-C connectivity.  Users can switch between tasks on one DisplayPort PC and a mobile USB-C device from a DisplayPort and USB console. The DisplayPort-enabled shared screen delivers 4K resolution across two computer platforms.

It enables plug-n-play USB-C connection to a mobile device such as a laptop without going through a docking station.

Video quality up to 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz is supported and it enables the integration of different computer systems (Windows, Mac, Sun, Linux, Android and iOS) that are accessible over one KVM console.

Console USB ports can be used for plug-n-play connection to compatible USB 2.0 peripheral devices to fulfil data-intensive desktop work requirements.

It supports DisplayPort Alternate Mode (DP Alt Mode) which enables the USB connection to carry DisplayPort signals.

As it is bus powered no external power adapter is required, there’s no software install and no device configuration is required. It is DisplayPort 1.2 and HDCP compliant.
