SPECIAL EDITION DDM KVM SWITCH FIRMWARE ANNOUNCED
ConnectPRO to Release Firmware Supporting Logitech’s MX Series

ConnectPRO has announced an update to their existing line of PLUS series KVM switches which feature ConnectPRO’s patented DDM (Dynamic Device Mapping) technology.

The update comes in the form of  “special edition” firmware, which provides added stability for USB HID devices, as well as compatibility for other USB wireless devices, which have historically been problematic with a broad array of KVM switches from many different manufacturers.  ConnectPRO is proud to announce that in addition to specifically providing a Logitech SetPoint compatible KVM, they now have added support for Logitech’s MX series of serial keyboard and mouse devices, as well as a variety of other wireless Bluetooth devices, which include dedicated USB receivers.

This update will apply to all PLUS version models incorporating the DDM technology, which provides full USB-HID transparency effectively mapping a keyboard and mouse to each connected system.  This provides greater stability for switching between systems, and faster response times, as the individual computers need not to re-enumerate your devices.  DDM technology also allows stable control of USB touch-screen displays, without having to deal with constant re-calibration.  In addition to the DDM ports, there is an additional USB 1.1 port for any USB devices to be shared, which do not conform to USB-HID standards.

Firmware for the UR-14+, 4-port USB/VGA KVM switch is available immediately, with all other models to be available within the next week.  Contact a ConnectPRO representative for further details.

ConnectPRO—with offices in Southern California, New York, and Taiwan—has been offering quality professional I.T. and A/V solutions since 1992 while being committed to a high level of reliability and customer service.
