Docking stations aren't what they once were. While they used to be just about everywhere, oftentimes tied to chubby business laptops, the increased power and use of wireless technologies has made them a bit of a dud. But there's still room for more universal solutions, particularly with USB 3.0 out in the open. Kensington has launched two new USB 3.0 docks based around DisplayLink's USB graphics tech, which also includes support for Gigabit Ethernet and Audio. The Office Dock sd3500v provides the ultimate hot desk expansion and productivity solution with dual-head video support for HDMI and DVI/VGA... Read more...
USB-powered monitors were quite huge at one point, but the excitement surrounding them has tempered somewhat. That said, there's still significant demand, and we're guessing that the market will actually grow somewhat when prices slide down a bit. DisplayLink has just announced a new USB 3.0 adapter in partnership with SIIG. The SIIG USB 3.0 to HDMI Adapter with Audio is powered by the DisplayLink DL-3500 USB virtual graphics chip, and it's one of the more compact adapters that we've seen. The new DisplayLink Certified adapter adds an HDMI port to any USB 3.0-enabled PC or notebook, enabling users... Read more...
There's a lot going on at the Intel Developer Forum (IDF) this year, just as there is every year, and not all of it has to do with processors. Making a splash of its own, DisplayLink debuted the world's first SuperSpeed USB 3.0 graphics adapter built around the company's DL-3500 chip. It's built by Winstars and is appropriately called the Winstars SuperSpeed USB 3.0 to HDMI adapter. "Winstars is set to deliver a very well-timed connectivity solution that builds on the inherent performance benefits of SuperSpeed USB 3.0," said Dennis Crespo, DisplayLink executive vice president of marketing and...

USB really is universal. The port has been used for an untold number of things in the computing universe, and more recently, accessory makers have figure out how to transmit video signals through the same cable that's more commonly used to connect printers and scanners. IOGEAR is one of those companies, recently introducing a USB-to-HD adapter that basically acts as an external video card in order to drive yet another monitor. This is particularly useful when connected to notebooks; it's pretty easy to pop a new graphics card into a tower, but if your notebook doesn't have a video output, you're... Read more...
With the recent explosion in internet content, many people are considering hooking their computers to a television. But if your video card doesn't have an HDMI output, the options get tricky. Converters and adapters get involved, and there's generally a loss of quality or worse: some material won't output at all if the right safeguards and DRM requirements aren't in place. But there's a better solution out there, according to Sewell Direct, at least. The company has just introduced the HD Deck USB to HDMI SW-31000 Display Adapter, which is a long name for a product that simply converts any USB... Read more...

This enables multiple full HD videos, high resolution... Read more...
ASUS has teamed up with DisplayLink to provide users with the connectivity and productivity benefits of a universal docking station. The new ASUS Universal Docking Station uses DisplayLink’s USB virtual graphics processor, the DL-165, which enables auxiliary displays to support HD resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 or 1920 x 1080 (wide). The new docking station measures 26x8x2cm and offers the following ports: 10/100 Ethernet, VGA, DVI, audio out, microphone in, four high-speed USB 2.0 ports, and Kensington Lock support. DisplayLink and ASUS Announce Worldwide Availability of Universal Docking... Read more...
You may have never heard of Plugable Technologies, but you've heard of DisplayLink. Or do we assume too much? At any rate, you'll know what both are after the company's newest releases, which includes a pair of new USB graphics products enabling easy expandability of any laptop or desktop system with a spare USB port. The UGA-125 enables multiple VGA, DVI, or HDMI monitors or projectors to be added to any system via USB 2.0 (one extra display supported per adapter); just toss this in your bag, and you can instantly turn a USB port into a monitor output. The second product in the UGA-125 family,... Read more...
DisplayLink has quietly revolutionized the way we use monitors. Once upon a time, the only way to connect a monitor to a computer was to hook it up via VGA, DVI, HDMI, composite or one of those "other" hard-wire solutions. Now, a simple USB connection can be used to pipe signals to a screen, which is particularly helpful if you're a notebook user looking to expand the amount of screen real estate available to you. The DL-165 module has been embedded into Toshiba's Dynadock V10, a compact USB Port Replicator that's designed to function as a USB-enabled docking station, but without the bulk that... Read more...
We never really thought USB-connected monitors would take off, but take off they have. In the case of Mimo, the demand for them has soared so greatly that they've been able to stay in business and thrive by selling secondary monitors that connect via USB alone. One of the main drivers in making the whole USB monitor revolution tick is DisplayLink, and they're understandably excited about the possibilities that come along with USB 3.0. Today, USB 2.0 has a bandwidth limitation that hinders DisplayLink products from being able to support extremely high resolutions and frame rates. Basic monitors... Read more...
Timing is a funny thing, isn't it? Just a few short days after Toshiba revealed its new universal docking station, along comes Kensington to give them a little competition. But Kensington's new pair of universal docks have something that Toshiba's doesn't: DisplayLink.The sd300v and sd400v are both designed to pass along video signals over USB, meaning that each of them have DisplayLink technology baked in. The USB docks allow people to connect their display, mouse, keyboard and speakers to any notebook PC though a single simple USB 2.0 connection, meaning that you don't have to connect nearly...

Digital designers and video editors will tell you that one display is often not enough. With so many different tool and palette windows, a single display can get crowded very quickly, leaving little room for the primary workspace. Add some other apps to the equation, such as e-mail and Web browsers, and you can wind up with a desktop drowning in windows. But another full-sized display is not always a practical solution for such users: A second display might represent a prohibitive expense or it simply might not fit on a desk that has limited space. Perhaps even more importantly, many systems... Read more...
