Video & Cameras Keyboards & Input Devices Crowdfunding Project

Openterface Mini-KVM is a plug-and-play tool that connects via HDMI for display and USB for emulating keyboard/mouse (HID) signals. The usage of Openterface Mini-KVM is straightforward; install the accompanying host application on the host, and then dynamic headless control can be initiated.

By using Openterface Mini-KVM, users can directly control headless target devices such as mini PCs, kiosks, or servers from a laptop or desktop computer without the need for additional keyboards, mice, and displays.


Control Your Devices Anytime and Anywhere


Openterface Mini-KVM can provide assistance to IT professionals needing to troubleshoot servers, developers managing multiple tests on edge computers, tech enthusiasts hacking single-board computers, or anyone simply looking to tidy up their workspace.
