Club3D claims it has world's first Y-cabled docking station:
Club 3D, the leading manufacturer of AMD based graphics cards and Ultra AV cables and adapters based in the Netherlands does it again. After being the first in the world to commercially launch a Multi Stream Transport MST Hub in the market in 2013, we are now proud to announce the worlds’ first Y-Cabled Docking Station under the Club 3D SenseVision range of products and strengthen our presence in the professional market! Club 3D will start shipping this new product in August 2014.

We see a strong growth in demand for devices targeting mobile productivity. Tablets and Ultrabooks quickly become a more widespread alternative for a classic Notebook or Mobile Workstation. With that increased mobility the demand for more productivity ‘on the go’ is constantly expanding. The Club 3D MultiStream Transport (MST) Hub is a great tool for adding multiple monitors to your (mini)DisplayPort fitted Notebook, Ultrabook or Microsoft Surface Pro 2 and the brandnew Microsoft Surface Pro 3 tablet but wouldn’t it be great if you could connect to monitors, peripherals, transmit data and charge your phone over the same connection at the same time?

This is now possible with our CSV-3203 Y-Cabled Docking Station which uses a mini DisplayPort and USB 3.0 connector. The Y-Cable DockPort Hub offers you two mini DisplayPort outputs, no less than three USB 3.0 ports and a Gigabit Ethernet port. This way you can easily enable connectivity to external keyboards, mice, audio, storage devices and (full HD) monitors while charging your phone at the same time.

The connected monitors can be configured to either mirror your primary screen or extend the Windows desktop allowing visibility of more applications at the same time, just like the Club 3D MST Hub. Since the MST format in combination with DisplayPort standard supports up to eight outputs the Club 3D Y-cabled Docking Station in combination with two further Club 3D MST-Hubs 1-4 (CSV-5400) can deliver this option to connect eight displays with lower resolutions. 4k enthusiasts can make use of the big data bandwidth of DisplayPort and run one display at 3840 x 2160@60 Hz (24bpp). In this case the other output will not be used for connecting any further display.

So think of the Club 3D Y-Cable DockPort Hub as an MST Hub with extended functionality, the easiest way to convert your mini DisplayPort fitted Desktop, Notebook or Ultrabook into a fully functional office. Productivity gain from adding one simple hub to your setup has never been higher!
