Switch KVM Control Procedure

    We are trying to integrate two KVM switches on a yacht. They will have two separate mouse controls that will control two dedicated displays. The keyboards are rarely used so will not be visible. Can the mouse control the KVM switch model ATEN CS18208? I have seen other models control the switch by pressing a couple of buttons that would show a menu on the display, and each input can be selected from this menu.

    Hello Jim,

    Thank you for reaching out on our HelpCenter.

    This feature is called on-screen display (OSD). ATEN CS18208 does support OSD.

    No. ATEN CS18208 is controlled via pushbuttons, hotkeys, OSD, and RS-232 commands.

    Hope this helps!
