The Freedom II KVM switch enables a single USB keyboard and mouse user to easily access information and control operations across USB computer systems and monitors, saving time, money, and space. This device allows switching between separate computer systems simply by moving a mouse cursor from monitor to monitor. Improved desk ergonomics frees up desktop space for more efficient use. The Freedom is optimal in command and control applications, such as those in finance on a trading room floor. Not only can users switch between several computers just by moving the mouse, but they can also simultaneously access a mix of USB peripherals, including high-speed USB devices.
