Yes. KVM2USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0 and even supports USB 1.x. However, keep in mind that these older USB formats are slower and have less bandwidth available for your captured video. For example, USB 1.x buses support a very slow data transfer rate of 12 Mbps and USB 2.0 buses have a transfer rate of 480 Mbps. For best performance, use your KVM2USB 3.0 with the USB 3.0 ports on your laptop.

KVM2USB 3.0 supports signals up to 1080p at 60 frames per second. Note that what you see in your monitor depends on your monitor’s resolution and refresh rate, as well as the processing speed of your computer that’s acquiring the images.

No. KVM2USB 3.0 captures and transfers every pixel of the original signal.

Yes. KVM2USB 3.0 supports custom resolutions. Please refer to the users guide for more details.

Yes, you can connect two or more KVM2USB 3.0 devices and capture multiple signals simultaneously. You will need to run the KVM2USB 3.0 application for each attached KVM2USB 3.0 device. However, you will notice a difference in frame rate as you attach each additional (active) KVM2USB 3.0. The higher the performance of your computer, the better the resulting frame rate will be.

Yes. Just shut down your computer system and attach the KVM2USB 3.0. When you restart your system with KVM2USB 3.0 connected, your system should detect the device.

By default KVM2USB 3.0 emulates a US keyboard. However, if you are using non-US keyboard almost all keys will work. You can use IME if you map IME activation key to different keystrokes on local and remote PCs.
