The unit offers multiple options for control including front panel buttons, an included IR remote, rear panel IR and RS-232 ports, and even an Ethernet port to accommodate IP control. Rack ears are included for installations where rack-mounting is desired. The EXT-DP-841 switcher is compatible with all operating systems using DisplayPort.
