Default DVI-D single link screen

Hello. I have a DVI-D single link screen. I have 3 devices to connect to it (not at the same time). What would you recommend? I can not find a hub that does it all.

- One workstation with DVI-D port. It used to be connected directly to the screen.
- One laptop with micro-HDMI
- One laptop with USB-C, Thunderbold and HDMI

Thank you

HDMI switchbox, and use adapters to adapt to the appropriate connector.

Does your monitor only have DVI, or does it have HDMI as well?

If only DVI:
Monitor <---DVI to HDMI adapter -- | HDMI switchbox| <-- at least 3 hdmi inputs on the switchbox:

1. | HDMI switchbox | <-- DVI-D to HDMI adapter -- workstation
2. | HDMI switchbox | <-- micro-HDMI to HDMI adapter -- laptop
3. | HDMI switchbox | <-- normal HDMI cable -- laptop

Can also look into KVM switches; to have a single keyboard, mouse, monitor going to all 3 devices (will also require adapters most likely). This solution may be more expensive, however.

Thank you. My monitor has DVI and VGA. I bought a DVI to HDMI cable to connect to the HDMI switch.

I just noticed that my workstation has HDMI as well. I will not use DVI anymore on it. The setup will be as follow.

1. | HDMI switchbox | <-- normal HDMI adapter -- workstation
2. | HDMI switchbox | <-- micro-HDMI to HDMI adapter -- laptop
3. | HDMI switchbox | <-- normal HDMI cable -- laptop
