DisplayLink Provides Virtual Graphics Technology To Dell Wireless Docks
PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 25, 2009 –In time for holiday shopping, USB graphics technology from DisplayLink Corp. has been selected to bring multi-monitor computing capabilities the new Dell Wireless Dock , the ideal desktop companion for Dell Latitude™ Z laptops.
Embedded into the ultra-wideband wireless dock, DisplayLink virtual graphics technology enables Dell Latitude Z laptop users to connect an additional monitor along with other peripherals through a hassle-free wireless USB connection – turning a laptop experience into a desktop.
Then when its time to get on the go, users can simply lift the laptop and walk away. With the wireless dock and Dell’s wireless inductive charging stand, the Latitude Z will never actually need to be plugged in.
DisplayLink's virtual graphics technology enables more visual workspace enhancing productivity and flexibility for users demanding a complete wireless computing experience that the Latitude Z is designed to meet.
