CKL Dual Monitor HDMI KVM Switch 2 Port is designed to control 2 dual-output computers or laptops and other applicable devices, using one set of keyboard, mouse and 2 monitors for extended, duplicated or spliced display at the same time.
How to Get Quad Monitor Display:
Quad (4) monitor displays require 4 video connections from each computer to the KVM Switch with the cable A and B (x3) included.
Scenario 1: Customized Computer with 4 HDMI Out:
No adapter needed except any adapter needed for monitor
Scenario 2: Computer with 4 Video out like HDMI + VGA / DVI / DisplayPort/USB C or other combination
Need reliable VGA / DVI / DP /USB C to HDMI adapter, VGA to HDMI adapter needs to have built-in chips and power supply, final resolution also depends on adapter.
Scenario 3: Laptop like MacBook Pro with only USB Type C outputs
Need docking station that allows you to connect 4 videos to the KVM switch. Dell Docking station is preferred.
Note: Adapters are not included. Please be aware of the adapters or docking station needed for your set-up before purchasing. click here to see a list of recommended adapter and docking station.
How to get keyboard and mouse work:
Make sure the included cable A (USB + HDMI + audio combo cable) are correctly connected, the end with USB, HDMI must be plugged into each computer, the other end with only HDMI must be connected to IN A port (bottom HDMI input port) on the KVM switch. Audio jacks are optional.
- Some gaming, mechanical keyboard and mouse may not work well from rear USB ports , we added a hotkey on/off button and a wired remoter. By turning hotkey off, the rear USB ports become standard USB2.0 Hubs, so you will have 3 USB 2.0 Hubs for connecting special keyboard, mouse and other USB devices, and use convenient one-button remote switch instead.
- Before order, please verify if your computers supports 4 monitor display simultaneously by connecting 4 monitors directly to your computer. The resolution may possibly be degraded through the KVM switch.
