Overview

The desktop B004-DP2UA2-K 2-Port DisplayPort KVM Switch lets you access, control, boot and reboot two 4K DisplayPort computers using one DisplayPort monitor, keyboard and mouse. Switching between computers is quick and simple using a connected remote port selector, keyboard hotkeys or mouse scroll wheel. The B004-DP2UA2-K supports Multi-Stream Transport (MST), so you can use multiple monitors via one DisplayPort connector.

By adding a powered USB 2.0 hub (sold separately) to the switch, you increase functionality by allowing USB peripherals—such as printers, hard drives, scanners, webcams and thumb drives—to be shared between computers. You can also plug microphones and speakers into the 3.5 mm mini-stereo jacks. Because audio and the B004-DP2UA2-K can be switched independently of each other, you can access one computer while listening to audio on the other.

All necessary cables are included. The B004-DP2UA2-K supports Ultra High Definition (UHD) video resolutions up to 3840 x 2160 (4K x 2K) at 60 Hz, 2.1-channel surround sound, HD Audio, EDID and HDCP. All connected computers receive the console monitor’s EDID information to ensure top video quality.

The B004-DP2UA2-K is easy to set up with no software or drivers to install. It supports Windows, Mac, Linux and Sun. It also supports DisplayPort Dual Mode (DP++) for directly outputting single-link DVI or HDMI signals via adapter.

Frequently Asked Questions

The B004-DP2UA2-K transmits the monitor’s EDID information to the selected computer upon connection. When switching ports, the EDID information of the monitor is sent to the newly selected computer, with the de-selected computer seeing the monitor as being disconnected. If your Macbook is set to go to sleep upon disconnection, the switching of ports will cause it to go to sleep, resulting in the re-arranged windows. To avoid this, access the Sleep menu in your Macbook’s settings and disable it.
The B004-DP2UA2-K transmits the monitor’s EDID information to the selected computer upon connection. When switching ports, the EDID information of the monitor is sent to the newly selected computer, with the de-selected computer seeing the monitor as being disconnected. If the graphics card on your computer does not support plug-and-play, this will result in no video being displayed, and you must restart your computer.
1. A: Upload the latest FW version (V.1.2.113) 2. Recommend disabling the “DDC/CI” feature in the monitor if available. Display Data Channel (DDC) / Command Interface (CI) is a type of communication between the computer and the monitor. It holds a collection of protocols used to facilitate the transmission of display-related information between the computer display and the display adapter. 3. Maximum supported video resolutions and number of monitors will be dependent upon your graphics card. Check the specifications of your graphics card to determine its capabilities. Procure the GP has the latest firmware installed. 4. Some monitors have the compatible issue so you need to use hotkey [Q] to enable monitor re-detection to bypass the signal on 2 ports. Reference Owner’s manual. 5. If you use 2 monitor with MST mode, DP1.2 just support two 4K@30Hz. 6. If the no image is displayed, it could help to change the MST settings and/or disabling the “D.P 1.2” setting.
