A KDS Client

A KDS Adapter

LAN Cable

KDS Keyboard

21″+ 1080 LED Screen

Note: Any LED with less than 1080 resolution will not perform properly for KDS and CDS. It’s mandatory to check if LED supports 1080. All modern 21″ LEDs are 1080. Also make sure it supports DVI, otherwise a DVI to HDMI converter will be required
