Is there a way to connect two macs to a single cinema display? Of course I won't use them at the same time, but I want them to be connected to the display.


At work, we refer to such devices as "switch boxes," though it appears that "video switch mini displayport" pulls up what you're looking for. The following appears to be what you're looking for:

4-port DualView Mini DisplayPort KVMP Switch with Peripheral Sharing

Of course, you're just interested in sharing the display, but it does have a built-in USB hub, in case that's needed. It has a good desktop footprint, as well.

  • Thanks! I used them in the good old times of CRT monitors, and they are expensive as I remember them! :D – napolux May 6 '15 at 18:52
