How To Have 2 VMS Users Connected To The Same PC?

From a member:

We are trying not to add a second workstation in small room but we have an issue with too much work going on for one work station. Staff are waiting to access the machine to review recorded video, key in case info, check email, watch live video, etc.

Anyone have any history with using a revere KVM type device to extend the end users desk top and allow multiple instances of a VMS application to be ran and controlled by two diff users? For example, one user would be on the PC entering case information while the other has a PTZ pulled up on a second monitor and can control it. Something like this.

Advice?
