The innovative product combines the performance of a USB-C dock and the flexibility of a USB-C switch into one space-saving and productivity-enhancing connectivity solution.

Cable Matters USB-C KVM Switch Dock

Cable Matters®, an industry-leading connectivity solutions supplier, today unveiled a unique USB-C® Keyboard, Video, Mouse (KVM) switch dock for two computers. 

The Cable Matters USB-C KVM Switch Dock lets two devices share a single keyboard and mouse, charger, peripherals, and two ultra high-definition displays over a single USB-C connection. It combines the performance of a USB-C dock, which offers a one-cable connectivity solution, with the flexibility of a USB-C switch, which shares peripherals between multiple devices.

The KVM Switch Dock will revolutionize the work-from-home experience, which is plagued by two common connectivity challenges. Many business-class laptops lack essential display or peripheral ports. Remote workers sharing a workspace with their business and personal devices struggle for space or constantly hot-swap work and personal laptops between shared USB peripherals and monitors. 

Cable Matters' KVM Switch Dock solves both of these problems. The dock instantly adds ultra high definition DisplayPort and HDMI video ports, a 3.5mm audio port, six USB-A ports, one USB-C port, and SD/MicroSD card slots to up to two USB-C devices. All connected peripherals and displays can be switched between the two connected host devices with the press of a button on the dock or the included wireless remote, eliminating the need for hot swapping or an extra switch. 

"The vision of this product grew from the needs of today's remote workforce," said Cable Matters President and CEO Jeff Jiang. "People are doing more than ever with multiple devices and require connectivity solutions that provide performance and flexibility at an affordable price."

With the latest in display and connectivity technology, the USB-C KVM Switch Dock offers unmatched performance over a single USB-C cable. It features a single 8K@30Hz or 4K@144Hz display, or dual 4K@60Hz displays. Dual USB-C Power Delivery charging supports 100W charging of one device or 65W charging of both devices simultaneously. The front panel USB-C and USB-A ports support 10Gbps data transfer and device charging.
