Supporting up to eight computers in a single box solution, and allowing multiple units to be cascaded together, ADDERView OSD offers exceptional value for money. An intuitive On Screen Display selection menu is provided allowing you to name all your computers individually. This makes channel selection easy as you no longer have to remember a channel number, just connect by selecting a name!

In addition to the ADDERView desktop features, ADDERView OSD also provides an expansion port that allows remote control operation of the switch. ADDERView OSD is a desktop switch but an optional rack mount kit is also available. A multi-function numeric LED display shows you the channel that you are currently connected to, data activity and the power status of the switch.
