DisplayLink's USB graphics chips and software allow high-performance, graphics to be displayed via the simple snap of a USB connection, making it easy to connect a laptop to a docking station or to enable multi-monitor computing without the need to install discrete graphics cards.
Part of Acer?s P4 consumer display series for media applications and games, the new 22-inch Acer P224 monitor comes with a multimedia dock.
The dock?s Dolby Virtual Speaker technology delivers digital surround audio and a USB hub provides easy connectivity to all peripherals, including USB monitors, at the same time. Optimal multi-functional lets people watch movies, surf the web, or listen to music with the convenience of just one USB connection from their netbooks or notebooks to the monitor/dock.
"Acer?s integrated monitor-and-dock design is a smart solution for laptop owners who want a cool, all-in-one upgrade," said Dennis Crespo, executive vice president of marketing and business development for DisplayLink. "And DisplayLink technology ensures that video and graphics applications will play smoothly on any additional monitors linked up to the PC via USB."
