The Matrix MP integrates neatly with all these computer styles by supporting USB keyboards and mice on the controlling KVM consoles. This enables the user to choose modern style keyboards and mice that are perfectly suited to multi-platform applications. USB keyboard support is particularly useful if Sun computers are to be connected because Sun keyboards typically have more keys than the other styles and are only now easily available in USB format.

Sun, USB and PS/2 style interface cables are available for connecting Sun, Mac, PC, RS/6000, Alpha and SGI computers. The unique design of the interface cables enables them to support distances up to 25m. Active 'keep alive' circuitry within the USB and Sun cables enables the MP to be powered off without disrupting computer operation.

Matrix MP switches support 2 simultaneous KVM consoles and are available with 8 or 16 computer ports. All models are fitted with advanced on-screen display menus for setup and control, and support the wide range of powerful and useful options that you would expect from an advanced Adder KVM switch.
