Nobody likes lugging around a "crash cart" complete with monitor, mouse, and keyboard when you need to connect on-site with servers and other headless machines and devices. Scrap your company's crash cart and use your laptop instead with Epiphan's KVM to USB Video Grabber and Mouse/Keyboard Emulator.
How It Works
Roughly the size of a box of paperclips, all you need to use the KVM2USB is a USB 2.0 port. Simply plug one end of the KVM2USB into your laptop and connect the other end to your device's monitor, mouse, and keyboard feeds via 2 PS/2 and one VGA connector. If your system does not have PS/2 connectors, don't fret, the KVM2USB works equally well with PS/2 to USB adaptors.
In layman's terms, the KVM2USB provides a simple, portable, and rapid way to convey VGA images from host machines to a laptop and simulates the laptop's keyboard and mouse outputs. It sports an image refresh rate of 2 to 28 frames per second (depending on your system) in a 16-bit-per-pixel RGB format providing you the performance you need.
