V-Switch quad II Multi-Image Display Modes

Up to four computers can be connected directly to one V-Switch quad II multiviewer and controlled in numerous multi-image display modes (when cascading V-Switch quad II units, more than 4 sources can be connected and displayed on the multi-image display simultaneously, e.g. 16 video sources):

Multi-Image Display Modes

Display Splitter in Quad Mode

In Quad mode, the display splitter splits the screen into four fields of equal size. Each field displays the entire screen content of a video source or computer. Keyboard and mouse operation can be selected to the field of the corresponding computer.

Screen Splitter in Picture in Picture Mode (PiP Mode)

Picture-in-Picture Multi-Image Display Splitter

When the PiP (Picture in Picture) function is activated, up to all three other video sources are displayed on the right-hand side of the full-screen image as thumbnails, allowing them to be monitored simultaneously. The Screen Splitter allows customizing size, position and selection of these thumbnails. In Triple Tile mode, the multi-image screen splitter automatically resizes the active channel and the PiPs to display all channels as large as possible without overlap.

Monitor Splitter in Dual Mode

In Dual mode, the Screen Splitter displays the left halves of the fullscreen images from two video sources side by side at full size. This allows e.g. to read  even small written text in full resolution and brilliant quality in each of the left halves. 

V-Switch quad II Multiviewer KVM in Full-Screen Mode

In Fullscreen mode, one of the four video sources is shown at full screen size and maximum resolution. Keyboard and mouse operation automatically switchs to the corresponding computer.

  3. Using the unit’s external configuration program on a remote computer
  4. Via a serial port using the protocol DCP XML
  5. Using mouse functions (Hotmouse)
  6. Using a touch screen

Hotmouse Function of V-Switch quad II

The Hotmouse function of V-Switch quad II is a comfortable and intuitive option to switch display modes, activate channels, or perform system settings - similarly to using short keyboard commands (hotkeys).
