    Hello Jeremy,

    Thank you for reaching out.

    We are assuming you have a few computers, each with 3x HDMI video outputs, and that you are looking for a KVM switch that supports 3x video inputs per port (computer), setting up a console with one keyboard/mouse and 3x DisplayPort monitors (probably in an extended-desktop video configuration).

    Naturally, having HDMI video on the computers and DisplayPort on the monitors complicates things a bit.

    The only such KVM switches that support these two different video interfaces in one box are the D2H-4P Multi-Screen, although they support DisplayPort input (from the computers) and HDMI outputs (to the console-monitors).

    Otherwise, you should look at HDMI KVM switches or DPN-4Quad DisplayPort KVM switch, and use HDMI-DisplayPort adapters on either the computers end or the monitors end.

    Another option that may broaden your selection is looking at DVI KVM switches (being that DVI video is fully compatible with HDMI video), which will in turn require the use of HDMI-DVI adapters (or adapter-cables) as well as DisplayPort-DVI adapters.

    Hope this helps!
