Description

SIIG’s USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station is designed to expand connectivity to your Ultrabook™ or Hybrid tablet, laptop and desktop via a single USB 3.0 port.  It features dual display ports (1 HDMI and 1 DVI) to enhance your system’s display capability, supporting HD resolutions and multiple display modes including primary, extended and mirrored.  This USB 3.0 universal docking station offers 6 USB ports (2 USB 3.0 and 4 USB 2.0) to satisfy multiple device connectivity needs.  It also includes Gigabit Ethernet, headphone and microphone ports to provide convenient connections. It is a versatile USB 3.0 Universal Docking Station to instantly expand and enhance your system’s connectivity performance.

Fast Connectivity and Charging

The full speed of the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station is unleashed when connected to one of your laptop’s USB 3.0 ports. The five gigabit per second SuperSpeed USB connection enables you to add two additional monitors at HD resolution (in Primary, Extend or Mirror modes), stream video over a gigabit Ethernet connection, and transfer files over the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station’s two USB 3.0’s ports. Although the best performance is achieved by using your computer’s USB 3.0 port, the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station still offers incredible functionality when connected to a USB 2.0 port. That USB 2.0 connection, however will limit the docking station’s total bandwidth to 480Mbps, limiting the data transfer rate of the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station’s USB ports and the speed of the Ethernet port.

Need to use any bus-powered USB devices like flash drives or webcams? The included power supply provides up to four amps to the docking station for any attached bus-powered USB 2.0 or 3.0 devices.

Unlike other USB 3.0 docking stations, the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station provides fast charging on one of its BC 1.2 compliant USB 3.0 ports when the computer is powered off or disconnected from the docking station.

Powerful Integration

By utilizing the DisplayLink DL-3900 chipset, the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station expands your laptop’s capabilities while eliminating the need for many individual USB dongles: USB to Ethernet adapter, USB graphics adapter, USB 2.0 and 3.0 hubs, etc . . . With the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station, you can either extend your Windows desktop or mirror it on up to two attached monitors.

When streaming a video, surfing the web or editing a Word document, the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station doesn’t degrade the graphics performance of your laptop, because your computer’s graphics processing unit (GPU) and CPU still perform the heavy lifting. The data output from those processors is what’s sent over the USB link to the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station, which then relays the pixel information to the connected monitors over the DVI and HDMI ports. Graphics performance isn’t the only thing that’s unlimited: the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station supports an almost endless list of monitor resolutions: all the way from 640x480 up to 2048x1152.

Speaking of productivity, the 3.5mm 2.1 channel audio output and microphone input jacks are great for  voice chat and conference calls.

A Complete Package

The USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station is ready to go anywhere you do because we include three different AC plugs (one each for the US, UK and EU) along with the power adapter that’s included with each USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station. We also throw in a USB 3.0 cable, stand holder for vertical mounting, an installation guide and a software CD for installing the drivers.

Graphics and Gaming

Both the HDMI and DVI monitor outputs support standard (16:9) and widescreen (16:10) aspect ratios at maximum resolution of 2048x1152.  In fact, the list of supported resolutions include 1920x1080, 1600x1200, 1680x1050, 1440x900, 1280x1024 and even lower resolutions like 1024x768 and even 640x480.

The USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station prime focus is productivity through connectivity, but it’s also possible to play games on the monitors attached to the docking station as long as a few caveats are kept in mind:

It may not always be possible to play demanding 3D games at the maximum supported resolutions of the attached monitors, especially if two of them are connected. This means that some games may require you to:
 
•    Lower the resolution on any monitors that are attached to the docking station
•    Play them on the computer’s monitor, not the ones attached to USB
•    Use a USB 3.0 port on your computer together with a USB 3.0 cable

Drivers and Operating System Compatibility

The following operating systems are compatible with the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station:

•    32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, 7, 8 and 10
•    32-bit Windows XP
•    Mac OS X 10.6 to 10.12 (Apple computers with Intel CPUs only)
•    Windows 7 “Starter” Edition: Limited Support (connected monitors are limited by this OS to Mirrored mode)

SIIG does not offer Linux drivers or support for this docking station.

Windows Update will automatically download and install drivers the first time this docking station is attached to your computer. In case this method doesn’t work, we include a driver CD with every USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station and provide updated drivers and information for download from our website.

The drivers for the DisplayLink DL-3900 chip require that the driver for your graphical processing unit (GPU) supports WDDM if your computer runs Windows, which is true for almost all computers running Windows 7 and later operating systems with Intel, NVIDIA or AMD GPU’s.

The main compatibility problem occurs when other USB graphics drivers are installed alongside DisplayLink’s. In some instances, a Windows bluescreen can occur. You must uninstall USB graphics drivers from other vendors (e.g. Fresco and SMSC) before installing the DisplayLink driver. These other drivers must not be installed on the system after the DisplayLink driver is installed. Therefore, it’s best not to switch away from products using DisplayLink’s USB graphics drivers.

But of course, with the performance and expansion capabilities of the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station, why would you?

HDMI TV and Touchscreen Compatibility

A TV can be attached to the docking station using the TV’s HDMI port, just like a monitor would, if the TV supports the following:

•    HDMI version 1.3
•    EDID on the HDMI interfaces

Since sometimes EDID isn’t supported on a TV’s HDMI connections, it’s often best to connect that TV’s VGA port directly (i.e. not through the docking station) to the VGA port of your computer.

Touchscreen monitors can attached to the USB 3.0 Universal Dual Video Docking Station if the software for that touchscreen allows it to be used in a multi-monitor configuration. To find out, contact your touchscreen’s manufacturer.
