Source: ATEN Technology
For data center administrators who are responsible for monitoring the screens of hundreds, and potentially thousands, of servers and PCs, video resolution becomes paramount for efficiency in the data center or server room. One such tool to aid in this effort is the KVM (Keyboard/Video/Mouse) switch that enables IT professionals to easily and effectively manage servers and other network devices - within the data center or from remote locations. This paper offers a technical glimpse into the "Whys" behind the "V" in KVM and the importance of video resolution. The paper will also offer a historical perspective on video signals and chart the continuum to high video resolution resident in the KVM products of today.
