This ThunderboltT 2 docking station for laptops is one of the first Thunderbolt 2 docks to support dual DisplayPort video output. With 20Gbps data throughput, it lets you connect up to 12 devices to your MacBook or laptop, without sacrificing system performance. Plus, it offers ports that are often missing on other laptop docks, such as eSATA and S/PDIF 5.1 digital optical audio.
This specialty laptop dock is a must-have accessory for a variety of environments, including home and office workstations, design studios, and on-site production applications.
Work more efficiently using two DisplayPort monitors
This Thunderbolt 2 dock lets you connect two displays to your laptop using common DisplayPort monitors. Traditional Thunderbolt docks require that at least one of your monitors is a Thunderbolt display for dual video, which means you might need to spend extra time and money on the additional display. Because it offers two DisplayPort connections, the dock makes it easy to create a highly productive dual-video workstation, with no additional costs or inconveniences.
With dual displays, you have more screen space to manage several programs at once. You can work more efficiently by avoiding the nuisance of rearranging windows, or flipping back and forth between pages.
Improve your viewing experience with 4K Ultra HD
If you're looking to add a 4K Ultra HD display to your laptop, then this dock can help. The dock delivers vivid 4K (3840 x 2160p - 30Hz) image quality to a single DisplayPort or Thunderbolt monitor. It's perfect for web and graphic designers, animators, or anyone who works with high-resolution videos and images.
Plus, if you have a Thunderbolt display, you can connect two monitors while maintaining 4K resolution on a single display. You can also connect multiple displays via a Thunderbolt daisy chain, giving you multiple options for expanding your viewing capabilities.
Access 12 peripherals at once, including digital optical audio and eSATA devices
The Thunderbolt 2 docking station smashes connection limitations. It provides several peripheral ports, including the hard-to-find connections that are missing from most laptops and docking stations. Ports such as a built-in eSATA port and S/PDIF 5.1 digital optical audio output set this dock apart, making it easy to enhance or harness the storage and audio capabilities of your MacBook or laptop.
The dock also features an always-on USB fast-charge port, so you can quickly charge your smartphone or tablet even when your laptop is disconnected. And because it offers 20Gbps data throughput, the Thunderbolt 2 dual-video docking station lets you connect and use your peripherals at higher speeds. With faster device access you can save time and get work done more quickly.
