INTRODUCTIONFEATURESThank you for choosing SPLITMUX-DVI-4RT from NTI. This product represents the latest state-of-the-art technology in keyboard-video-mouse (KVM) switching. The key advantage of the SPLITMUX-DVI-4RT (SPLITMUX) overconventional KVM switches is it allows you to simultaneously display and manage 4 computers on a single console.It combines key features of a high-end KVM switch and a digital multiviewer, scaling and converting videosat both inputs and output.DISPLAY MODESQuad mode uIn this mode, the screen is split into four fields of equalsize; each displaying the entire screen contents of onesource.t Fullscreen modeIn Fullscreen mode, one of the four sourcesis displayed in full screen size and maximumresolution.PiP mode (Picture in Picture) uUsing this feature, the full screen display of one of thefour video sources is accompanied by one to three smallimages (thumbnails) of the other video sources whichare displayed on the right hand side of the screen allowingsimultaneous monitoring.t Win modeIn Win mode each video source is displayed in its ownseparate, detached window. Each of these windowscan be freely positioned and their height and widthcan be adjusted. Transparency can be set. Positioningis done using either the Hotmouse function, the frontpanel or the touch screen. Presets of the windowpositioning can be saved.SPLITMUX - Installation and Operation Manual

INTRODUCTIONFEATURESDVI & VGASPLITMUX supports resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz for both DVI and VGA.Any combination of VGA and DVI at all standard resolutions is possible at inputs and output. Analog video inputis converted to digital. If an analog display is connected, SPLITMUX converts the digital signal to analogat the output. Internally, SPLITMUX processes video purely digital guaranteeing superior digital imagequality.USB & PS/2 for keyboard / mouse / touch screen / trackballUse either PS/2 or USB ports on the computer to connect keyboard and mouse to SPLITMUX. It supportsany combination. To connect the console, SPLITMUX features two USB ports for mouse, keyboard,touch screen or trackball connection.Transparent USB 2.0SPLITMUX features a transparent high speed USB 2.0 matrix: USB 2.0 devices (e.g. printer, externalmemory, memory stick,webcam, 3D mouse, finger printer) can be switched to computers connected.OperationThere are six ways to operate SPLITMUX, switch channels, and select display modes:1. Using the buttons on the front of the unit2. Using configurable hotkeys (default HOTKEY is Ctrl Alt )3. Using the unit’s external configuration software on a remote computer4. Via a serial port using the protocol DCP XML5. Using mouse functions (Hotmouse)6. Using a touch screenThe configuration of SPLITMUX is carried out by means of an On Screen Display (OSD) that can beopened and navigated either with keyboard commands, front panel buttons or remotely via ConfDev on anexternal PC.The LEDs on the front panel indicate the unit’s current status.Use the serial (RS232) or USB port for remote control and firmware updates.
