Club 3D looks forward to meet you at CeBIT 2016 where we will showcase our updated product portfolio which was expanded over the pas two years and includes new USB Type C adapters, as well as the first (Mini)DP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 adapters, several unique USB Docking Stations and Graphics Adapters.

Mini Review on Club 3D MiniDP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 adapter CAC-1170 and Intel NUC Club 3D was the first to introduce the (Mini)DP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 adapters like already mentioned in the news about CeBIT. Feedback and orders have been tremendous and still are. No matter if user wanted to go for the CAC-1070 (DP) to have 4K60Hz from their VGA card or CAC-1170 (MiniDP) for MiniPC like Intel NUC etc., all of them were really happy that finally such an adapter was made availabe. The NUC Blog from Finland did have a look on how the NUC with Skylake chipset does come along with the new adapters and came to the following conclusion: “This device helps to overcome the other major issue that the HTPC folks had with the Skylake NUC: lack of HDMI 2.0 connectivity.” They did try as well with Linux and after chaning some settings it did work as well. ...



Club 3D Type C Adapters – NEW: DP1.2/HDMI2.0/DVI

Back in October 2015 Club 3D did introduce its first USB 3.1 Type-C Adapters. Those adapters did have a very good market acceptance directly from the beginning and with Type C featured Notebooks, Ultrabooks etc. having a wider spread from week to week we are sure that now is the right time to introduce the next USB 3.1 Type C Adapters to offer our customers the widest range of outputs that they can get with Type C.Those adapters do form an innovative new product segment with our existing range of high quality Audio/ Video Adapters like f.e. the first (Mini)DP 1.2 to HDMI 2.0 adapters (CAC-1070/1170) that were initially introduced by Club 3D in January 2016. The USB Type-C connector was introduced in the first months of 2015. This completely new connector plug is smaller, reversible and capable of transferring more than data alone. It is expected that the USB Type-C connector will eventually replace the USB Type A and Type B connectors we have all been using over the past years. With the Type-C connector, the USB 3.1 standard was introduced as well. Compared to USB 3.0 the new standard offers twice the transfer rate of up to 10Gbps and allows for three essential features to be used over a single cable: Video, Data and Power. The possibility of connecting and powering your laptop, tablet or smartphone with a range of peripherals, monitors and other devices using only one cable is a significant improvement over the previous standards. It means the beginning of a new era with ...

Club 3D launches the worlds first Multi Stream Transport (MST) Hub!

Club 3D are proud to announce the world’s first Multi Stream Transport (MST) Hub. This practical device is probably the most budget friendly way to add more display devices to existing desktop or mobile systems fitted with a DisplayPort (DP) output. Display devices have always been an integral part of the PC experience. Whether it is in the form of a desktop monitor, a notebook’s embedded panel, or the touch screen of a PC tablet, display devices play a vital role in defining the user’s visual experience. Connecting more display devices to existing systems has become increasingly more important. Whether it is for home use, allowing different display devices showing different applications or multimedia, more display devices means more possibilities. Or for corporate use, allowing the productivity per work station to increase drastically if more display devices can be used. How does it work? Simply put, the MST Hub uses the extreme high bandwith signal from a DisplayPort 1.2 output and splits this signal to three separate signals with own DisplayPort outputs. This offers the possibility to quickly and easily add up to 3 VGA, DVI, HDMI or DP display devices to your set-up. The display devices can be connected using passive adapters. Product Features Standards compliance/support: Displayport v1.2, displayport v1.1a,VESA DDM Standard, HDCP V2.0, DisplayID, and EDID v1.4   Supports main link rates of 5.4 Gbps (HBR2), 2.7 Gbps (HBR), and 1.62 Gbps(RBR) from...
