On-screen display technology used on KVM switches is used to show control and selection functions pertaining to the KVM, such as what port is selected, and what ports have computers connected. OSD is typically broadcast on top of the selected channel's existing display. Because of this, the quality of the OSD's images is inconsistent and unreliable. Its size and positioning depend on the video resolution of each individual system connected.
On KVMs with a DCC controlling menu, the configuration selection is displayed on a dedicated independent video channel. The quality of the controlling menu is more secure and reliable because of this. The DCC method of broadcasting this information via an independent channel allows for greater functionality and more programming possibilities in the future.

Famous quotes containing the words channel, display and/or control:
“There may sometimes be ungenerous attempts to keep a young man down; and they will succeed too, if he allows his mind to be diverted from its true channel to brood over the attempted injury. Cast about, and see if this feeling has not injured every person you have ever known to fall into it.”
—Abraham Lincoln (18091865)
“The LORD brought us out of Egypt with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, with a terrifying display of power, and with signs and wonders; and he brought us into this place and gave us this land, a land flowing with milk and honey.”
—Bible: Hebrew, Deuteronomy 26:8.
“If the technology cannot shoulder the entire burden of strategic change, it nevertheless can set into motion a series of dynamics that present an important challenge to imperative control and the industrial division of labor. The more blurred the distinction between what workers know and what managers know, the more fragile and pointless any traditional relationships of domination and subordination between them will become.”
—Shoshana Zuboff (b. 1951)
