    I currently have (2) desktop computers connected to (6) 42" monitors on each box (via DisplayPort). The client will like the ability to switch over the other computers SIX monitors to either desktop computer as needed.

    Any ideas how to do this?

    Hello Ed,

    Thank you for reaching out on our HelpCenter.

    Clarifications (based on your phone call):
    a) Normally, computer #1 is sending 6 video-signals to 6 screens, while computer #2 is also sending 6 video-signals to the other 6 screens.
    b) At will, you need computer #1 to send 12 video signals to 12 screens, then be able to switch to computer #2 to do the same (send 12 video signals to 12 screens). If you need the 12 video-signals from each computer to be unique, each computer will need to have 12 video heads. Please confirm this is the case.

    c) In scenario b), are you only concerned about the video? or do you also need to be able to switch keyboard & mouse control from one computer to the other?

    d) In our phone conversation you mentioned HDMI, not DisplayPort. Please advise what type video interface do you have on 1) the computers, and 2) the monitors.

    e) Please advise what video resolution is being driven out of each video port on each computer.

    Important note: To continue this discussion - please respond via KVMGalore HelpCenter thread, NOT via e-mail.
