Switching by mouse

Operating requirement:
Unlocked TS function (ControlCenter-Digital, ControlCenter-Compact, ControlCenter-IP, DVICenter)

Intuitive operation

The mouse acts as if on a “virtual desktop” and can be moved seamlessly across the connected displays. Moving the cursor from the active to another display, the keyboard-mouse focus automatically switches to the connected computer. This feature lets you create multi-monitor workplaces, where users do not have to deal with the actual infrastructure. Thus, they are able to perform their tasks while operating the system intuitively. The mouse becomes the ultimate intuitive switching tool.

Simple and logical configuration

Configurations created with the CrossDisplay-Switching Config Tool contain information about the order and ratio of monitors placed at the TradeSwitch console. Both the switching status of the CrossDisplay Switching feature and the mouse speed settings are saved in the configuration as well. In addition to monitors placed next to each other, any combinations are supported. The monitor ratio can vary as well.

You can watch the video alongside to see how easy the system can be configured.

Integration of multi head sources

In combination with KVM matrix systems, CrossDisplay-Switching is not limited to the number of displays integrated into the system. In addition, even computers with multi head graphics are supported. Thus, an unlimited mix of scenarios can be switched from all sources and the user always operates in the visible area and never “flies blind”.

In addition to switching to a monitor placed on the left or the right side of the active monitor, you can also switch to monitors placed above or below the active monitor (ill. 1): Move the cursor to one of the edges between monitors 1 and 3 or 2 and 4 to switch from an upper monitor to a lower monitor.
