The HP LCD8500 1U Rackmount Console Kit is an ultra-dense, high-performance KVM console that combines a full 18.5-inch LCD monitor with keyboard and touch pad in a 1U form factor. The 1U rackmount form factor is designed to allow a KVM console switch to be mounted directly behind it. The WXGA TFT LCD brightview display supports most common video resolutions, from 800 x 600 through 1600 x 1200 at 60 to 75 Hz refresh rates. The rackmount keyboard includes a three-button touch pad with four scroll keys and Windows shortcut keys. The LCD8500 1U Rackmount Console Kit also includes a Lid Switch display management feature that shuts off the display backlight when the console is closed and repowers to its current state when opened again, helping to prolong the life of the display panel.
