Cable Matters Introduces a Dual 4K Video USB-C Docking Station for the MacBook Pro

Cable Matters Logo

​Cable Matters®, an industry-leading supplier of connectivity solutions, announced a new addition to their line of custom-designed USB-C™ products. The Cable Matters Dual-Input USB-C Docking Station with Dual 4K Video and 80W Power Delivery provides a clever and economical solution for MacBook Pro users to connect two 4K monitors with HDMI®. Unlike other USB-C docking stations, this USB-C docking station uses two USB-C ports to support a second display with the MacBook Pro.​ 

USB-C Dongle Dilemma

Notebook users face the challenge of connecting voice, data and Ethernet networking to the latest Mac and Windows notebooks with only USB-C or Thunderbolt™ 3 ports. Bandwidth ranges from 40 Gbps on a Thunderbolt 3 port to 10 Gbps on a USB-C port. Notebook charging, data transfer and external video require plugging and unplugging multiple cables and adapters for each function. Organize your desktop and reduce stress on your USB-C ports with this Dual-Input USB-C Docking Station.​ 

Plug & Play at Dual 4K

While other USB-C docking stations use video graphics drivers or other PC technology to support dual video, this Dual-Input USB-C Docking Station uses two USB-C ports to connect two 4K monitors. The MacBook Pro or MacBook Air® with Retina® display can mirror or extend to both displays without fear of losing compatibility with a macOS® software update.​ 

Throttle Up or Down with a Dynamic Bandwidth Switch

A 4K/30Hz or 4K/60Hz switch adjusts the bandwidth to support different video resolution settings and data transfer rate speeds with the following options:

1.        Two 4K@60Hz displays with a data transfer rate limited to USB 2.0 (480Mbps) speed with 480Mbps Ethernet

2.        One 4K@30Hz + One 4K@60Hz display, full USB 3.0 and USB 3.1 data transfer speeds, and Gigabit Ethernet

Dual HDMI Video Display Examples:

·       3840x2160@60Hz + 3840x2160@60Hz Displays (4K/60Hz Mode)

·       3840x2160@30Hz + 3840x2160@60Hz Displays (4K/30Hz Mode)

·       2560x1440@60Hz + 3840x2160@60Hz Displays (4K/30Hz Mode)

·       1920x1200@60HZ + 3840x2160@60Hz Displays (4K/30Hz Mode)​ 

Economical 12-Port Command Center

Thunderbolt 3 docking stations can cost up to 50% more than this Dual-Input USB-C Docking Station while still requiring an adapter for the second display. This USB-C docking station maximizes your investment with support for a MacBook Pro and Windows® PC with Thunderbolt 3, a Google Pixelbook® or another computer with only USB-C.

Dual-Input USB-C Docking Station Functions:

·       Dual HDMI Video

·       80-Watt Power Delivery

·       microSD and UHS-II SD Card Readers

·       Ethernet Networking

·       USB-A & USB-C Gen 2 Data & Charging

·       Audio In/Out
