StarTech launches two USB-C multiport adapters for business professionals

The USB-C connector is absolutely here to stay. Not only is the reversible plug used by USB, but Thunderbolt 3 too. The upcoming USB4 standard will use the connector as well, and is backwards-compatible with USB 3.x. This means any USB-C dongle or adapter you buy today will be supported for many years -- how cool is that?

Today, StarTech launches two new USB-C multiport adapters that are designed for business professionals. Of course, they can be used for personal use too. One of them (CDPVDHMDPDP) is focused solely on video, while the other (DKT30CHVGPD) does video, Ethernet, and offers USB-A ports. Best of all, they both feature power delivery and an integrated USB-C cable that can be tucked into the device itself. In other words, you won't have to worry about losing or forgetting a wire.

"The USB-C 4-in-1 Multiport Video Adapter with Power Delivery (CDPVDHMDPDP) provides users with a connection to virtually any display, anywhere. This adapter can output video to a single monitor while keeping laptops charged, allowing users to confidently walk into any boardroom or hotel desk area, without worrying about their device’s battery life or if they’ll be able to connect to the provided display. With the benefit of 4K 60Hz, it also proves to be a highly capable adapter for handling resource-demanding applications requiring UHD resolutions," says StarTech.

The company also says, "The USB-C Multiport Adapter with HDMI, VGA and Power Delivery 3.0 (DKT30CHVGPD) offers a complete on-the-go solution. This multiport adapter offers flexible video output options, easy setup, thanks to plug-and-play capabilities, as well as power delivery and access to an additional USB-A port and ethernet. By providing support for legacy VGA projection and newer HDMI based systems, it is a highly effective solution for boardroom or conference room presentations. Through including essential device connectivity (additional USB-A port and gigabit ethernet), DKT30CHVGPD also works well in small or shared workstations where space is a concern, but productivity can’t be compromised."
