If you're looking for the convenience of a desktop KVM switch but have no requirement for some of the features found on our higher specification SmartView range, then the ADDERView KVM switch is the ideal choice.

Both 2 and 4 port models are available making the ADDERView the ideal choice for less demanding installations.

ADDERView has the same level of reliability and compatibility as our SmartView KVM switch range. In fact, it shares some of the advanced features as its big brothers which includes SmartBoot (continuous keyboard and mouse emulation ensures reliable bootup of all machines), mixed mice support (mixed PS/2 and AT/RS232 keyboards and mice supported as standard) and flexible channel switching from front panel key, 3 button PS/2 mouse or user selectable Hot-key combinations.
