Switch Smart AVI UHDN-4P alternatives?

    Want a stable local KVM Switch. Must be able to support UHD.

    Each of the four computers have two outputs but only the KVM only needs to connect to one of them. The other outputs are for a video wall.

    There must be no visual artifacts from the switching. Also need EDID lock so if a computer needs to reboot, it can send video output correctly (same video output to KVM and other video put to Display, they can't get mismatched). Note: we are placing a HDMI splitter with EDID lock before the Display.

    At the moment, the best solution looks like the Smart-AVI UHDN-4P
    Is there another I should consider? Thanks for your help.

    Hello Shawn,

    Thank you for reaching out on our HelpCenter.

    60Hz? Or can you live with 30Hz refresh rate?

    Must the KVM switch support HDMI? Or can you have it supporting DisplayPort?

    Please advise.

    Can be 30Hz and can be DisplayPort or HDMI. Thanks for your help.

    Thanks for the links. It does help. The NTI UNIMUX-HD4K-4 is nice with the OSD. It doesn't say anything about EDID control but appears to be very stable. I contacted them for more information since the user manual didn't have much on EDID. Thinking I'm going to stick with Smart AVI on this one. The D2H-4PS or UHDN-4PS since they list EDID video emulation (it's also a little bit cheaper and they seem to specialize in KVM gear. I've been happy with Smart AVI's other gear as well.
    Thanks again for your help.
