More Screen Space

We live in the age of multi-tasking. Both at work and at home we need all of the screen real estate we can get. The problem is, our devices, and therefore our screens are getting smaller and smaller. Additionally, you can’t add video ports to most devices these days (pretty much anything except for those old fashioned, tower style PCs), that can cause you problems if you want to have two or more monitors. That’s what makes the Minideck 3.0 so great, you can easily add up to 6 monitors (up to 4 on Mac) via USB. And with the new chipset and USB 3.0 in our newest Minideck, you are assured the best USB graphics performance. Learn more about the benefits of multiple monitors.

New Chipset

Slow transfer rates can cause you to have choppy streaming and lag when watching video. By upgrading the chipset we have greatly increased the speed and power of the Minideck 3.0 by adding real-time adaptive compression technology. In order for your computer, the Minideck, and your monitor to transfer data, the data needs to be compressed. This process of compressing and decompressing data can affect your transfer rates. Real-time adaptive compression balances compression methods from moment to moment based on content, USB bandwidth, and CPU power availability. That means that you have the best possible USB graphics experience at all times.

USB 3.0

SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is capable of achieving transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps. That’s ten times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 is also bidirectional, which allows your external devices to send and receive data simultaneously. All of that translates into fast, reliable video that you can display on multiple screens without lag.

Note: If you don’t have USB 3.0 ports, the Minideck 3.0 will still work and the updated chipset means it will still be faster than older Minidecks. However, to take full advantage of the Minideck 3.0s capabilities, you’ll need USB 3.0 ports on your device.

Pros: It recognized my Mac and my projectors immediately

Cons: None

Other: I travel extensively and rely on my BenQ projectors and my MacBook Air on a routine basis for my presentations. I am a bit embarrassed to admit that I have been using cheap adapters for far too long only to struggle with getting picture on the sno icreen and adding stress to what should be a very routine setup. I finally bought the Minideck adapters before my last trip and it is remarkable how quickly everything sets up and all devices are recognized. Just for fun I even tried to make it fail by unplugging devices, shutting the computer off and turning it back on, Etc., but no matter what I did video immediately popped back onto the screens. My only regret is that I've been dragging way too many cables and adapters around the world and didn't simply buy these units much earlier. Thank you for building a device that simply works without me having to think about it.
