Quick Overview

Switch one display between 8 DisplayPort sources



Manufacturer Part Number: EXT-DP-841

Easily switch between eight computers using DisplayPort with the Gefen 8x1 DP Switcher.

The rack-mountable Gefen 8x1 DP Switcher offers an economical solution for switching between eight different computers to one display location at the touch of a button.

Eliminating the need to purchase many displays in a studio or professional environment, this versatile solution saves money, supports both Mac and PC-type computers, and offers uncluttered and increased desktop space.

This Switcher can be controlled using front-panel discrete switching, the included IR Remote control, or the RS-232 port for switching automation.

The 8x1 DP Switcher is compatible with all operating systems using DisplayPort.

How It Works

Connect the eight included 6-foot DisplayPort cables between the computers and the Switcher inputs. Connect the Switcher output to the monitor using a DisplayPort cable. Connect the included 5V DC locking power supply to the 8x1 Switcher and connect the AC power cord to an available electrical outlet. The currently selected source will be displayed.
