Fujitsu and Lenovo Group on Wednesday introduced new docking stations for latest notebooks that enable additional display connectivity through common USB 3.0 interface and special DisplayLink chips that let monitors to be connected to PCs through USB 3.0 ports. The new dock stations enable additional expansion capabilities for mobile computers. All users have to do it to plug them to USB 3.0 ports.

“Lenovo’s latest ThinkPad USB 3.0 Dock takes full advantage of the bandwidth offered under SuperSpeed USB to achieve exceptional graphics and video performance in an unprecedented form-factor,” Said John Cummins, vice president of sales and marketing for DisplayLink.

The Lenovo ThinkPad USB 3.0 dock is powered by the DL-3900 dual head graphics chip with integrated Gigabit Ethernet and audio. The new DisplayLink certified USB docking station packs wide expansion opportunities in a small form factor, including dual video connections offered via two DVI ports enabling multiple displays to be connected for enhanced productivity,  five USB 3.0 ports for peripheral expansion and always-on mobile device charging, Gigabit Ethernet and audio connectivity.

“Incorporating virtual graphics technology from DisplayLink into Fujitsu’s port replicators makes it easier for mobile workers to connect to a more ergonomic, richer desktop display experience, no matter which desk they choose,” says Dieter Heiss, head of workplace systems at Fujitsu technology solutions.

Fujitsu USB 3.0 port replicator is also based on DisplayLink’s DL-3900 chip and provides a Gigabit Ethernet port, two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports, a DisplayPort connection that supports ultra-high resolutions of up to 2560*1600, DVI-I port with an external VGA adapter, as well as 3.5mm audio in/out ports with stereo (2.1) and surround sound (5.1) support.

Specifically designed chips from DisplayLink can receive a compressed video stream via such interfaces as USB, Ethernet or WiMedia (a wireless data-transfer standard with a throughput up to 480Mbps), uncompress it into video and output it in various formats to displays.
