DisplayLink Demonstrates USB-C Docking Experience That "Just Works" For All Notebooks and Tablets

LAS VEGAS, Nevada.   April 27th, 2015 DisplayLink, the leading provider of USB graphics technology removes the confusion over USB-C docking and demonstrates a full dock experience with peripheral connectivity, multiple monitor expansion, audio, Gigabit Ethernet and USB hub connectivity for notebooks with standard USB-A or the new USB-C connections. Demonstrations are being shown at Interop Las Vegas Expo, April 28th to 30th at the DisplayLink booth #826.

 DisplayLink will demonstrate complete flexibility to IT and businesses with a DisplayLink enabled dock connected via USB-C to a new Macbook, Pixel 2 Chromebook, and Windows notebook.   The  same docking station can also be connected to existing notebooks and tablets via USB Standard-A.  Further, an Android Smartphone can be docked to the same setup, highlighting total flexibility across all connections and OS, without the need for complicated switch circuits or added costs to host platforms or docks.

 “DisplayLink first demonstrated USB-C docking at CES 2015 and following the new MacBook and Chromebook announcements, we are keen to highlight how DisplayLink enabled docking solutions uniquely provide backward-compatibility with the installed base of USB-A platforms and future-proofing for new USB-C platform acquisitions.  The same dock can connect to USB-A or USB-C notebooks and tablets with a simple cable change,”  said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing.

 DisplayLink builds on ten years of USB graphics and docking connectivity.  As notebooks and tablets continue to reduce in size, connectivity options continue to migrate towards simple USB and wireless.  DisplayLink solutions seamlessly span USB-A, USB-C, and wireless, any USB connection and WiGig for Commercial and Enterprise, and any USB connection and WiFi for SMB and SOHO environments.

 Connectivity for peripherals is maintained regardless of host connection, ensuring hubs can connect and expand all your peripheral needs even for platforms like the new Macbook, which only has a single Type-C connector. DisplayLink’s docking solutions provide the same connectivity regardless of connector type:

> Hosts with USB-C connector:  Connects to DisplayLink enabled dock via C-to-B cable.

> Hosts with USB Standard-A connector:  Connects to same DisplayLink enabled dock via A-to-B cable.

 All functionality with multiple displays, Gigabit Ethernet, audio and SuperSpeed USB connectivity for hub connected peripheral is maintained seamlessly in all cases.
