****** Page 9 ****** Chapter 1 Introduction Overview The 1762 USB DVI KVIVIP Switch and the CS 1764A USB 2.0 DVI KVMP Switch chart a revolutionmy new direction m KVM (Keyboard, Video, Mouse) switch fimctionality by combining a 2/4 polt KVM switch with a 2 polt USB hub at the same time as providing an interface for a digital monitor (DVI). In addition, the CS 1764A comes with ATEN’s new Video DynaSync technology, which optimizes display resolution, and power on detection, which means if one computer is powered off, the CSI 764A will automatically switch to the next powered-on computer. As a KVM switch, the CSI 762 CS1764A allows users to access two or four computers from a single USB keyboard, USB mouse, and monitor console. As a USB / USB 2.0 hub, it permits each computer to access any pefipherals connected to the hub on a cone computer at a time’ basis. The unit’s independent (asynchronous) switching feature, allows the KVM focus to be on one computer while the USB peripheral focus is on another. This eliminate the need to purchase a separate USB hub as well as the need to purchase separate stand-alone peripheral sharers — such as print servers, modem splitters, etc. The CS 1762 / CSI 764A further improves on previous designs with DVI (Digital Visual Interface) connectors, and the transfer of keyboard and mouse data to the computers via a fast, reliable USB connection. DVI supports both digital video input (flat panel displays, data projectors, plasma displays, digital TVs and set-top boxes) and analog video input (traditional monitors and TVs). The CS1762 / 764A is audio enabled. A single microphone (CS1762) / Two microphones (CS 1764A) can provide audio input to each of the computers, and you can listen to the audio output of each computer on a single set of speakers (CS 1762) / two sets of speakers (CS 1764A), on a one-computer- at-a-time basis. As with the USB peripherals, the audio focus can be independent of the KVM focus. Setup is fast and easy; simply plug cables into their appropriate pons. There is no software to configure, no installation routines, and no Incompatibility problems. Since the CS 1762 / CS1764A intercepts keyboard input directly, it will work on multiple computing platfonns (PC (x86/x64), Macintosh PowerPC, and Sun Microsystems Sparc). 1

****** Page 10 ****** CSI 762 / CS1764A User Manual There are two convenient methods to access the computers: port selection pushbuttons located on the unit’s front panel; and hotkey combinations entered from the keyboard. There is no better way to save time and money than with a CS 1762 / CS 1764A installation. Since a single console manages all of the computers, the CSI 762 / CS1764A setup: eliminates the expense of having to purchase separate console components for each computer; saves all the space those extra components would take up; saves on energy costs; and eliminates the inconvenience and wasted effort Involved m constantly moving from one computer to another. 2

****** Page 23 ****** Chapter 3 Basic Operation Manual Switching There are two convenient methods to access the computers: Manual — which involves pressmg the push button port selection switches located on the 111Ws front panel; and Hotkey — which involves entering combinations from the keyboard. Hotkey polt selection is discussed in the next chapter. For manual polt selection: • Press and release a port selection switch to bring the KVM focus to the computer attached to its con-esponding port. The USB and Audio focus does not change — they stay with the port that they are already on. Press and hold a port selection switch for more than 2 seconds to bring the KVM focus, plus the USB and Audio focus to the computer attached to its corresponding port. • Press and hold polt selection switches I and 2 for more than 2 seconds to stmt Auto Scan Mode, see page 19 for details. • Press and release either port selection switch to stop Auto Scan Mode. The KVM focus goes to the computer attached to the conesponding polt of the switch you pressed. Hot Plugging The CSI 762 / CSI 764A supports USB hot plugging — components can be removed and added back into the installation by unplugging their cables from the USB hub ports without the need to shut the unit down. 15

****** Page 24 ****** CSI 762 / CS1764A User Manual Powering Off and Restarting If it becomes necessary to Power Off the CSI 762 / CSI 764A unit, before starting it back up you must do the following: l. Shut down all the computers that are attached to the switch. 2. Unplug the switch’s power adapter cable. 3. Wait 10 seconds, then plug the switch’s power adapter cable back in. 4. After the switch is up, Power On the computers. Port ID Numbering Each KVM port section on the CSI 762 / CSI 764A switch is assigned a port number. ( 1 or 2 for the CS1762; I to 4 for the CS1764A). The port numbers are marked on the rear panel of the switch (see page 8 for details). The Port ID of a computer is derived from the KVM port number it is connected to. For example, a computer connected to KVM port 2 has a Port ID of 2. The Port ID is used to specify which computer gets the KVM, USB peripheral, and audio focus With the Hotkey port selection method (see page 1 8 for details). Alternative Manual Port Selection Settings When Hotkey Setting Mode has been activated, pressing [S] will invoke the alternative front panel pushbutton mamtal port selection functions as follows (see page 24, also): • Press a port selection pushbutton once to bring the KVM, audio and USB focus to the computer attached to its conesponding polt. • Press a port selection pushbutton twice to bring the audio focus to the computer attached to its corresponding port. • Press and hold a port selection pushbutton for more than 2 seconds to bring only the KVM focus to the computer attached to its conesponding port. • Press and hold port selection pushbuttons I and 2 for more than 2 seconds to staff Auto Scan Mode, see page 19 for details. 16

****** Page 25 ****** Chapter 4 Hotkey Operation The CSI 762 / CSI 764A provides an extensive, easy-to-use, hotkey function that makes it convenient to control and configure your KVM installation from the keyboard. Hotkeys provide asynchronous (independent) switching of the KVM, USB hub, and audio focus. Therefore, you can give one computer the KVM focus, another the USB hub focus, while a third has the audio focus. Port Switching All polt switches begin with tapping the Scroll Lock key twice. The tables below describe the actions that each combination performs. Note: If using the Scroll Lock key conflicts with other programs runnmg on the computer, the Ctrl key can be used, instead. See Alternate Port Switching Keys, page 21 for details.

****** Page 27 ****** Chapter 4. Hotkey Operation Auto Scanning The CS 1762 / CSI 764A’s Auto Scan feature automatically cycles the KVM focus tlu•ough the computer polts at regular intervals. This allows you to monitor the computer activity without having to take the trouble of switching from port to port manually. See the table below for details. Hotkey [Scroll Lock] [Scroll Lock] [A] [Enter] [Scroll Lock] [Scroll Lock] [A1 [n] [Enter] Action Invokes Auto Scan. The KVM focus cycles from port to port at 5 second intervals. Five second intervals is the Default setting. The KVM focus cycles from port to port at n second intervals. Note: l.
