To manage up to eight computers with support for driverless multi-head operation, the new SKM-08 from SmartAVI offers the best in quick, user-friendly KM switching to get the most out of nearly any multiple-computer environment. With driverless operation, the SKM-08 is able to switch keyboard and mouse control among virtually all computers with no need for software or updates, and it supports both single and multi-head display outputs.

This new addition to SmartAVI’s line of KM (Keyboard and Mouse) and KVM (Keyboard, Video and Mouse) switches delivers an ultra-affordable device for simple switching between as many as eight computers. The SKM-08 features SmartAVI’s new PASS (Progressive Automatic Screen Switching) technology, which enables the device to automatically switch computers based on where the user’s mouse goes. PASS works when the switch is controlling single-head computers. For on-the-fly switching when using multi-head computers, the device offers switching that is engaged through a double mouse middle click. RS-232 control and front panel switching are also supported.

The SKM-08 is a critical piece of gear for a wide variety of applications and situations. It allows users to quickly manage eight computers with ease. Thanks to four USB 2.0 ports for the user’s work station, items like scanners, printers, USB hard drives and other peripherals can be used in conjunction with a keyboard and mouse.

“Being able to manage multiple computers, often with multiple screens, is an important need in many professional environments,” said Albert Cohen, CEO of SmartAVI. “The SKM-08 delivers reliable and user-friendly operation at the low price our customers expect.”
