In today’s fast-paced, ever-changing world, the notion of mobility has taken centre stage. Whether at home, at work, or anywhere in between, the modern mobile lifestyle requires technology that’s capable of keeping pace with its users. Portability, connectivity, and flexibility are no longer an option, but rather, a necessity. USB-C, the latest breakthrough in data transfer technology, makes mobile life a whole lot easier.

MMD offers a selection of USB docking monitors that harness all the power and potential of cutting-edge USB technology — so you can enjoy enhanced convenience and productivity in an instant.

An emerging standard

Expected to become the default connector of choice for the tech industry, latest-generation USB-C enables users to charge, transfer audio and video signal, and connect to the Internet– all with one single cable. Measuring a slim 2.4 mm, the connector is suitable for both ultra-portable devices and standard notebooks.

Plus, it’s reversible and can thus be inserted in any orientation—a simple yet ingenious feature that anyone who has ever struggled to insert a classic connector is sure to appreciate.

With its single shape, USB-C is set to make manufacturer-specific docks a thing of the past as it becomes the industry standard, allowing users to dock, connect, and charge their laptops without the fuss of multiple USB cables and connectors.

But that’s not all—USB Type-C ports can also support a wide variety of different protocols using “alternate modes”, meaning users can output to HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, and more.

Made for mobility

Designed for modern and multifunctional workstations, Philips USB docking monitors offer all the speed and versatility of USB-C in a sleek and intuitive package. Thanks to easy one-cable docking, the monitor becomes a hub that instantly enables users to transfer data at ultra-fast speeds, charge their notebooks and serves as an ordinary docking station, just without using that extra space on the desk.

The monitor connects it to peripherals such as a full-sized keyboard, mouse, external HDD, camera, or even headphones. Should you need to use a wired internet connection – this cable can also be connected to the docking monitor with RJ45 standard port.

Whether you are a graphic designer wanting to link multiple monitors, a notebook user who is looking to extend his device’s limited connectivity; or a dynamic business user seeking maximum possibilities in flexible workspaces - these monitors deliver what you require. Three Philips USB-C docking monitors are designed to meet the needs of today’s connected lifestyle.
