USB keyboards and touchpads or trackball mouse are the most prevalent devices connected along with VGA input, to a KVM switch. There are different kinds of base features in regards to how a switch communicates with USB I/O hardware system. They include keyboard, mouse, and video input. In addition to the standard switch, the optional USB Hub offers added efficiency for attaching peripherals. Attaching a printer, external hard drive or other USB device can come in handy. These hardware devices are used in various environments but are mostly found in in data centers, where many servers can be accessed from a keyboard, monitor and mouse. Having the ability to connect to any computer in the rack ads efficiency to a computer managers daily operation as well as saves a lot of space in the rack. This then allows data center personnel to connect to any server in the rack. KVMs today are controlled with hot key commands as well as with Print Screen keys. Hot key navigation is supported by an on-screen display system GUI that shows a list of target servers. Selecting each port is simple from either the on screen display, or using the push button membrane on the switch. The analog switches support up to 1600 X 1200 resolution. While the digital DVI KVM switches will support up to 1920 X 1200 resolution and support audio on each port.
