I would think the biggest market for such a product are large data centers where they need to access any number of servers without a full KVM installation.
â€œAside from a rack mount LCD console, which can be expensive, server administrators and technicians would typically have to use a server room â€˜crash cartâ€™, which is a cart comprised of a keyboard, mouse, and monitor.
