Key Applications and Benefits of Dual Host Docks

How dual host docking stations with Keyboard/Video/Mouse (KVM) sharing increase productivity, collaboration, and connectivity

A dual host docking station is equipped to connect and simultaneously power and control two different host devices, connecting them up to three monitors and multiple downstream peripherals via a single desktop dock.

Dual host docking solutions with integrated Keyboard/Video/Mouse (KVM) sharing are a powerful way to enhance the capabilities of a single docking station – resulting in greater productivity, increased collaboration, and more connectivity.
