I'm reconfiguring my home work environment and one of my ideas is having both a sitting and a standing desk (seperate). As part of this though, I'd like to continue to utilize the same computer between the two desks, instead of finding a way to migrate work between the two in a way that isn't disruptive.
I'm looking for a reverse KVM switch. Instead of forcing one set of monitors and keyboard/mouse to service two (or more) computers, I'd like one computer to be able to swap between two different sets of monitors and keyboard/mouse but support "modern" monitors - HDMI - and keyboards (USB instead of PS/2)?
I've found things like Belkin's Reverse KVM, but that only has support for VGA and PS/2 connections.
- Support for two sets of multi-monitors (at least Dual Screen per set up - total of 4 monitors).
- Support for USB Keyboard and Mouse connections
- Swapping between the two sets of hardware should be as simple as a keyboard short cut or a button press on the KVM itself
- Budget is around $150. If that's not realistic, I'm flexible on this aspect
- Should have either "long" cables between the two hardware sets or support both HDMI and USB extension cables. The two desks are on opposites sides of a shared wall.
- Extra points for USB sound/microphone connection
- Needs to support Windows currently and potentially OS X in the near future.
