“The University buys the computers and peripherals indirectly from Toshiba. We have different notebook models ranging from high to low end. When docking or port replication was a requirement the Dynadock was the best choice for us, due to two reasons: the Dynadock works with every single notebook as they connect via USB, and therefore, very convenient, as well as they are much more affordable than a proprietary docking station.
The Dynadock is very easy to use, USB plug-and-play. We rolled-out 50 units, and IT support required less than five minutes per unit and desk to deploy.”

Compared to conventional VGA/DVI monitors, the product is so easy to use. You just need to download the drivers and the screens are on! No worry about graphics cards, etc. Indeed USB plug-and-display. I was aware of the benefits of multiple-monitors, but not of how easy they could be to set up. Thanks to DisplayLink I am now planning to include this technology in other areas of the business, such as security. Multiple monitors are a wonderful tool to increase employee efficiency by spreading out tasks onto different monitors or by displaying applications which need to permanently run. Thank you DisplayLink!”

No extra graphics cards are required, making it easier, faster and less expensive for desktop and notebook users to achieve the benefits of multi-monitor computing. People can rely on a familiar USB interface to simply plug and view in multi-monitor mode, gaining more capabilities and productivity since they can spread several applications over four displays while viewing everything at once.
With DisplayLink USB graphics connection technology, users with PCs based on the Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family can easily connect to external peripherals they need without sacrificing performance, mobility or cost.
The DisplayLink graphics solution supported by the Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family is optimized for Windows Vista Basic and Ultimate Windows Vista Aero where accelerating video playback and high-definition images look more realistic. In addition, DisplayLink is optimized for DVD playback without compromising performance.
“Together with DisplayLink USB graphics technology, PC users now have the added capability to multitask and increase productivity with multiple screen outputs using PCs based on the Intel® 4 Series Express Chipset Family,” says Eric Mentzer, Graphics Development Group General Manager, Intel Corporation.

Programmers and people in the financial industry have used more than one monitor for years
It's the new status symbol in Silicon Valley: multiple computer screens.
Size doesn't matter anymore; it's how many you have. It's the phenomenon of three, and even four computer monitors per person.
Programmers and people in the financial industry have used more than one monitor for years. But lately, it's becoming common for the rest of us. Rhoda Alexander is one of growing number of people who use more than one computer monitor at the same time.
"It helps me tremendously, because typically, in your average day, I might have 15 different files open at the same time." Rhoda is Director of monitor research for analyst firm iSuppli.
"There's a certain amount of jealousy that gets into it," she jokes. "I do have office mates who come by and say, 'Wow! I want your setup!'"
Two developments are driving the boom in multiple-monitors. The first is the arrival of plug-n-play connectors that make it easy to daisy-chain as many as 8 displays at once. One company, DisplayLink, expects the sales of "extra" monitors to grow by 25% this year.
That's largely due to the rise of portable computing. In the coming year, we will buy more notebooks than desktops for the first time. Rhoda Alexander notes that, "35 percent, 38percentof consumers buy a monitor at the time they buy the notebook computer."
We like the portability, but not the small screen.
"I can work on the road in the kind of work that I do. But, oh, what a sigh of relief when I get back to where I have a lot of monitors to spread it out on."
Why not use a single humongous monitor? Ergonomics. Experts say it's not a good idea to keep looking up and down so much, and it's easier on the eyes to have the screens folded in on you. So, you want more than a single monitor. Don't you?

LG announced this week the availability of its L226WU-PF 22in LCD monitor with integrated DisplayLink technology.
The monitor features DisplayLink’s DL-160 circuit board, which makes it possible to add up to six extra displays via a USB 2.0 connection, technology that made its first appearance in the 20in L206WU.
“We’re thrilled that LG is rapidly expanding its line of USB connected displays in partnership with DisplayLink,” said Hamid Farzaneh, president and chief executive at DisplayLink. In-Stat research projects that USB network displays will exceed 26 million units and 40 million units in 2010 and in 2011 respectively, and LG is among the key forward-thinking display companies leading this major paradigm shift.”
The L226WU-PF features 1,680 x 1,050 resolution, a 5:000:1 dynamic and 1,000:1 native contrast ratio and a claimed two millisecond response time for grey-to-grey movement of pixels. The display is also equipped with a standard D-Sub and digital DVI connections.
Availability has been confirmed for Europe but pricing had not been confirmed at time of writing.

As the crowds poured in today to the InfoComm - the “Information Communications Marketplace”- where audio and video professionals converge to meet, greet and do business. DisplayLink welcomed visitors with an attention-getting “Walking Demo” showing the simplicity of USB connected displays. Be sure to look out for DisplayLink in the hallway, between North and Central Halls, while at the show. You might be one of the lucky recipients of a USB graphics adapter.
InFocus now has two projector models that will feature DisplayLink’s USB graphics connection technology. It’s as simple as it sounds. Rather then using another type of cable, users will be able to utilize a simple USB cable to connect their laptop to a projector. Now there’s no fumbling around for the right cable, or messing around with the correct resolution the projector will support.
InFocus projectors supporting the DisplayLink technology will include the InFocus IN3100 and IN1100 series. The IN3100 will be available June 30th for US$1499. The IN1100 will retail for US$1099 and will be available August 8th.

“The EVGA UV Plus+ is a USB-based video adapter that allows both desktops and laptops with Windows operating systems to extend or mirror their virtual desk space for improved productivity. Yeah, that sounds like a good tag line for a marketing manual but that really is a perfect description of the device.“
“We've heard your cries for USB-to-DVI adapters that don't cost two arms and a good portion of your left leg, and apparently so has EVGA. Announced today with DisplayLink, the company is serving up two new USB graphics adapters (UGAs) in the UV Plus+ family of wares, both of which are hitting resellers as we speak for "well under $100." Both peripherals are designed to play nice in Windows XP and Vista, and while the UV12 supports resolutions up to 1,280 x 1,024 (1,440 x 900 widescreen), the UV16 goes all the way up to 1,600 x 1,200 (1,680 x 1,050 widescreen). Kudos for lowering the bar EVGA, now it's time for everyone else to follow suit.”
"I took a deeper look at DisplayLink in February and was actually floored by how easy it was to setup."
“DisplayLink and EVGA today announced that they have teamed to deliver a new generation of affordable USB graphics adapters (UGAs) for mass-market retail consumers.”
“If you don't run dual monitor setups, you have no idea what you are missing. And it is extremely easy to do. But EVGA just announced a box that will let you add even more monitors very easily. (I would really like 4 actually)”

The Kensington sd200v Notebook Docking Station with Video allows a user to connect speakers, a VGA display and up to five USB peripherals to their Mac with a single USB 2.0 connection. DisplayLink’s network display technology is used in the docking station to provide high performance graphics over USB. The docking station’s DualView feature provides an easy access front-panel button to instantly enable multi-monitor computing by switching the external display between mirror and extended desktop modes.
As an alternative to the sd200v Notebook Docking Station with Video, Mac users can also utilize the recently announced Kensington Dual Monitor Adapter to add up to four additional displays to their computer over a single USB 2.0 connection for a powerful desktop “command center” with immersive access to digital multimedia content at work or home. The adapter is unique in that it has both VGA and DVI connectors and can be used interchangeably with either type of display. Kensington Dual Monitor Adapters are ideal for individual travellers who need to connect to a wide range of displays and for businesses that want to offer their employees complete connectivity flexibility.
DisplayLink today at Macworld, Booth 4238, announced the availability of its USB network display technology for Mac OS X, allowing Intel-based Mac users to, for the first time, connect additional displays to their computers using USB 2.0.
USB multi-monitor capability expands a computer’s work area freeing users to be more creative, productive, and to enjoy the full capabilities of their Mac. For example:
- Mac mini users can, for the first time, view their content on up to four displays.
- MacBook and MacBook Pro users can experience desktop convenience with the first ever USB graphics universal notebook docks.
- iMac and Mac Pro users can use DisplayLink-based products to expand their visual workspace by adding up to four additional displays with the ease of USB and with instantaneous mouse and keyboard response, 32-bit true-color graphics and DVD-quality video performance.

If you were to take a walk around the show floor at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, you'd probably think that big flat panels and wireless distribution of audio and video are the big stories of this year's show (also, wireless in general). But behind the scenes, DisplayLink is showing off what could be the most killer technology of all because of how practical it is: a multidisplay system for PCs and Macs that works off of USB. In other words, the video from your PC can be distributed across as many as six displays with little more than one USB cable from your system. Read The Full Article
