Iogear unveiled a new line of gaming products at CES 2022, including its Keymander Nexus Gaming KVM. The device allows players to connect consoles and PCs to a single box so they can share a monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
Scheduled for release sometime this spring, Keymander Nexus is compatible with all current consoles, including PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch. When a monitor and controls are plugged in, players can quickly toggle between devices with the press of a button. Theoretically, this would give players an easier way to use mouse and keyboard on console games without plugging and unplugging accessories while switching systems.
The device supports 4K gaming at 60Hz via HDMI 2.1, so it can’t take full advantage of current PlayStation and Xbox consoles. There is limited support for the PS5, as the device won’t work with the DualSense controller at the moment. However, it can use Switch, PS4 and Xbox controllers.
The Keymander Nexus has a few more tricks up its sleeve. It has a built-in DAC that reportedly amplifies game audio, and it connects to an app that can be used to adjust key mapping, mouse sensitivity, and more.

This is just one gaming product that Iogear brought to this year’s show. The company showed off a compact 65% MechLite Nano keyboard, a full-size Hover Stealth model, and the Unicom, a full-featured gaming headset that will retail for just $30 when it launches sometime this year.
