KVM2USB 3.0

KVM2USB 3.0 is a commercial grade USB 3.0 solution for keyboard, mouse, and monitor (KVM) emulation. It turns your laptop into a crash cart. Connect it to your target computer’s HDMI, VGA, or DVI port (for video) and usb port (for mouse and keyboard), then connect the other end of KVM2USB 3.0 to your Windows or Linux computer via USB 3.0. Run the provided KVM App on host computer to see and control the target computer, no matter what OS its running.

KVM2USB 3.0 is small and portable, making it easy to bring with your laptop to troubleshoot or manage equipment anywhere on your campus. And because there’s no software to install on your target computer, you can view and control any machine that can use a VGA, DVI, or HDMI monitor and a normal USB keyboard and mouse.

 

Portable KVM console over USB
The simplest way to manage local servers and headless computers, with KVM over USB. Epiphan KVM2USB 3.0™ has fewer connectors than a traditional KVM switch and is powered over USB, meaning you won’t need extra power sources and will have less cable mess.

The USB advantage
KVM over USB is a portable IT crash cart that lets you control machines that are in proximity of you. It connects to your computer or laptop by USB 3.0, and needs only one-time setup required on your local host, regardless of how many different servers and computers you control with it. KVM2USB 3.0 is the best portable laptop crash cart for managing compartmentalized LANs, DMZs or contaminated equipment without the need to make connections that expose other equipment and networks to a compromised machine.

Simple and portable IT crash cart
KVM2USB 3.0 is small and portable, making it easy to turn your laptop into a portable data center crash cart or manage equipment anywhere on your campus. And because there’s no software to install on your target computer, you can view and control any machine that can use a VGA, DVI, or HDMI monitor and a normal USB keyboard and mouse.

Durable enclosure and reinforced connectors
Built to work every day, in any environment. KVM2USB 3.0 has an all-metal enclosure and reinforced connectors designed for repeated connections and daily use. With no moving parts, the device has exceptional reliability and nearly silent operation.

Control target computers from Windows or Linux
Nothing to install on the target computer! It’s never been easier to use the KVM2USB 3.0 and your laptop as an IT crash cart and move between target machines or to troubleshoot tricky problems with boot loaders, BIOS / UEFI configuration pages and more. Install the Epiphan KVM Control Application on your host computer and it’s ready to view and control any other local server, computer, or machinery.

1080p at 60fps
KVM2USB 3.0 supports capture up to 1920 x 1200 at 60 fps with nearly zero lag.
