Product Information

Leading our foray into the multi-user switch arena is ATEN's CS228. With support for two users and up to eight attached computers, this unit is perfect for testing benches and other multi-user environments. Multi-level password protection, built-in OSD (On-Screen Display) and full multimedia sharing are just a few of the enhanced features the CS228 supports. Of course, the CS228 also supports many of the features that make ATEN KVM switches stand above the competition, including support for up to 1280x1024@60 or 800x600@85 flicker-free video resolution, Plug-n-Play monitors and most advanced wheel mice. There's no better way to manage a multi-user server room or testing bench than with the CS228.

Password protection is provided in order to prevent unauthorized access to the computers. Responding to the growing use of audio, the CS228 has built in microphone and speaker support.
