This solution is ideal for those who need fast multi-computer switching to handle heavy data processing or verify user-interface development over high-performance monitors, such as government staff, marketing professionals, sales warriors and engineers. Additionally, those who need increased productivity and high precision for multitasking between computers to monitor diverse data and indicators in trading and sales charts, such as financial and market analysts, as well as graphic designers and CAD engineers to switch between two computers and your USB-C mobile devices for design artwork in 4K visual quality. By elevating desktop productivity as well as providing increased mobility, this KVMP Switch could be ideal for a WFH set-up.

This KVMP switch is aimed to elevate desktop productivity with improved mobility.
