· 32% need a more flexible facility

· 19% are compelled to reduce power consumption

Additionally, Adder found:

· 39% use KVM for video editing; 37% for command and control; and 32% for audio

· 20% plan on upgrading their KVM equipment in the next 12 months; 56% in 1 – 3 years; 12% in 4 – 6 years; and 13% in 7+ years

· 5% of KVM equipment is less than 12 months old; 23% is 1 – 3 years old; 31% is 4-6 years; and 15% is 7+ years old; 26% were unsure of the age of their KVM equipment.
