We absolutely love it! In fact we’ve added THREE additional monitors and we run our entire business from our new office.

DL: That’s great! How has DisplayLink’s multiple display technology helped you to manage your business?
Our company, Galaxy Installer, installs, sells and repairs everything from television satellites to home theaters. The new office allows me to scan and email photos of our work experience to potential customers while my husband tracks our inventory, surfs the web and manages our production schedules. It really is the core of our business and it’s so great to be able to manage the status of our business at the same time.

DL: Well congratulations and continue to enjoy the DisplayLink Ultimate Home Office.
Thank you! We will!

DisplayLink…Helping to Save Lives

We all know that multiple display technology improves the quality of our lives, but did you know that it may actually save your life? Through our partnership with The East Anglian Air Ambulance, DisplayLink is aiding the East Anglian community in support of their ongoing service that covers Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Norfolk and Suffolk. Two fully medically equipped helicopters (code-named Anglia One and Anglia Two) provide a life-saving resource reaching patients quickly and if required, transporting them to hospital within minutes. This remarkable effort provides air ambulance relief to an area approximately 11% of the total area of England.

DisplayLink’s multiple display technology is an ideal application for EMS dispatchers who simultaneously access information from a variety of systems including: alarm inputs, mobile data systems, time synchronization sources, records management systems and more.

DisplayLink Just Works

We had the pleasure of speaking with Alan M. Frank, Out-of-Band Access Specialist for OOBAXS.com responsible for broadcasting over Ethernet using Avocent technology to large displays throughout the Interop show floor. For his main command station, he needed to use dual displays to monitor live video streams, music and graphics applications. He tried using systems with dual graphics cards, in addition to DVI converter cables to connect these monitors. Set up proved to be fussy, so he chose to work with DisplayLink graphics adapters, because “It just worked.” To hear his story, watch the video.
