DisplayLink Shows Smart Phone as a Workstation With Multi-Display and Corporate Network Connectivity


LAS VEGAS, Nevada.   January 6th, 2015 DisplayLink, the leading provider of USB graphics technology, will demonstrate an Android Smart Phone as a workstation at CES 2015 with the equivalent functionality of a multi-display PC workstation.  With dual 1080p monitors, corporate LAN, connectivity for keyboard, mouse, and USB peripherals, all via a standard USB port.  The solution requires no hardware or special cables on the phone and delivers the best of both worlds, ultra-mobility and full desktop productivity.  It will showcase at CES from January 6th ~ 9th 2015 at the DisplayLink booth #36258 in South Hall 4. 

“DisplayLink pioneered universal USB docking in the PC arena for many years and now brings this unique experience to Smart Phones.” Said John Cummins, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing, “Users can now connect their Andriod phone to any DisplayLink-enabled docking station for ultimate flexibility and expansion.  No longer are we limited to a single clone screen or movie viewing, now with ARM and Intel-based Smart Phones, we now can enjoy a full multi-display workstation experience.”

There in no need for added chipsets on the phone or special connectors or cables.  Android Smart Phones can simply use any standard USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 cable, connected to any of the millions of deployed DisplayLink universal docks. Now Smart Phone users can have a multi-screen display experience, enabling applications to run on independent monitors, with corporate LAN for backup and sharing data, full keyboard and mouse for data input, all via its standard universal USB port.

DisplayLink’s mobile solution will be available in 2015 and announcements on partnerships and products will be released later this year.
