- Transform a single USB-C port, with DP Alt mode* or Thunderbolt 3 technology, into multiple connections simultaneously, including triple displays** (one DisplayPort, one HDMI, and one VGA). Note: *Requires a USB-C port that supports “DisplayPort Alternate Mode” (DP Alt Mode). Not all USB-C ports/systems support DP Alt Mode functionality. **Requires GPU / graphics card to support at least 3 external displays to use all 3 video ports at the same time with extended mode
- DisplayPort Multi Stream Transport Technology (MST)* – Supports single 4K @30Hz Ultra HD video output or dual Full-HD 1080p video output (HDMI/DP, DP/VGA, HDMI/VGA) or triple HD 720p video output. *Note: Mac OS does not support MST function and will only mirror the displays
- Supports Power Delivery 3.0 specification* provides up to 100W power to charge Laptops, Notebooks, and other devices. *Note: The computer and power adapter must support PD 3.0 specification, otherwise the dock will reset when power delivery is disconnected
- Adds 1 USB-C data and 2 USB Type-A ports with USB 3.1 Gen 1 data transfer rate up to 5Gb/s to your computer
- Lightweight aluminum chassis with detachable/stowing USB cable is perfect for business trip and traveling
- Anti-slip rubber pads keeps the docking station firmly planted to the desktop
1) Mirror mode using Windows Display Utility and NVIDIA Utility is limited to 2 displays
2) Video Wall mode (e.g., Panoramic) requires either an AMD Eyefinity, Intel, or NVIDIA Surround technology graphics adapter
3) Currently, most Intel HD Graphics cards only support up to 3 external monitors altogether
4) Mac OS currently does not support MST function will only mirror displays
Adding additional displays to your system is simple with MST Hubs; however, they are mostly dependent on and tied to your Graphics Card’s capability to operate properly. Make sure your system requirements are met before purchasing an MST Hub. Below are some key requirements for our MST Hubs. Please contact us if you’re not sure before making your purchase.
1) Make sure your DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort is DP v1.2 or later. This is the most important criteria. If you’re unsure, check with the video card or system manufacturer.
2) Mac OS does not support MST function and will only mirror the displays.
3) Install the latest drivers for your video card. Go directly to the system/video card manufacturer or chipset owner, such as AMD, Nvidia or Intel, to find the latest driver. Driver update through Device Manager may not retrieve the latest driver available.
4) MST hubs cannot increase the number displays a video card supports. Regardless of the number of display connectors built into your video card, each video card has a limited number of displays it can support. From our experience at the current time, AMD and NVIDIA video cards support up to 4 displays, while Intel supports up to 3. If you’re unsure, check with the video card or system manufacturer.
5) Refer to our bandwidth table to make sure additional displays can be accommodated. It’s important to note that if you use a 4K monitor to display in 1080p, there’s a possibility that the link still gets 4K bandwidth and reduces the overall bandwidth for the other displays.
6) To connect HDMI, DVI, VGA monitors to our DisplayPort/Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort MST Hubs, use ACTIVE converters.
7) The Microsoft Surface “Dock” is not compatible with Mini DisplayPort MST Hubs and should not be used when the Surface Dock is connected. Our Mini DisplayPort MST Hubs will work when directly connected to the Surface tablet/book.
8) These Microsoft Surface products are compatible with our Mini DisplayPort 2-port MST Hubs: A) Surface Pro 2, B) Surface Pro 3, C) Surface Pro 4, D) Surface Book. *Note: Surface products only support up to 3 displays total, including the Surface screen.
