  • "The ST-C5USBVU-1000S units are working out very well. We're using them to extend KVM from our server racks to our On-Air Broadcast Studios, and running our automation system from the COMPAQ L2105 TM Touch screens. The On-Air Talent is loving them, because they don't have to move around the studio to make changes or ask a production assistant to get them information from another area."
