4x4 matrix video switchA switch that allows controlling (or viewing) multiple devices connected to its ports from multiple consoles or screens. The switch provides the user with the ability to switch between ports, routing the control (or view) of any port to any one of the controlling (or viewing) consoles.

Matrix switches are typically used for video applications (with computers or with home-theater HDTV), allowing custom routing of multiple sources to multiple screens.

Matrix switches are also used in KVM-switching applications, in which the switch (AKA multi-user KVM switch) supports multiple users (consoles) concurrently accessing and controlling multiple computers connected to the KVM switch.
