As well as USB-C, EIZO monitors also offer other signal ports. These include HDMI and DisplayPort inputs to transmit graphic and audio signals. Some models also have older ports such as DVI-D and DSub to enable operation on established installations.
USB-C and docking function
Unparalleled connectivity – thanks to USB-C
Being able to set up your workstation quickly and easily takes on greater importance in times of mobile working and desk sharing in particular. This is exactly what USB-C makes possible. Forget about annoying docking stations, your EIZO monitor is everything you need to set up your workstation of the future – all while keeping your desk tidy.
Graphic and audio signal
You can easily connect your laptop or desktop computer to your monitor thanks to the USB-C port – the USB-C cable transmits the graphic and audio signal. The simplicity of connecting your laptop to the monitor in particular makes it easy to reap the considerable benefits that a desktop monitor offers compared to a laptop display. Improved ergonomics (such as sitting posture) is just one of these benefits. This means that one cable is the only thing you need to access all the benefits of modern working – and there are quite a few of them.
The monitor reliably charges small computers and laptops with a 70-W power supply via USB-C. This creates more space on your desk as you no longer need an additional power supply for your computer. So forget the irritation of taking your laptop charging cable wherever you go – USB-C means greater freedom and flexibility.
Thanks to multiple USB downstream ports and the USB-C upstream port, you can connect any and all peripheral devices such as webcams, mice and keyboards or memory card readers to the monitor directly. All peripheral devices are available as soon as the laptop is connected to the monitor via USB-C. In short, you can work in more locations than ever before thanks to our docking functions. What’s more is that it’s incredibly simple to connect the peripherals to the monitor as all of the ports are located on the side of the housing, making them easily accessible.
Some EIZO office monitors have an integrated LAN port. This allows you to access the entire network infrastructure (Internet access, network printers, network servers and so on). All you need to do is connect your network cable to the monitor, and your laptop/PC is then connected to the network signal
supplied via USB-C. This is particularly advantageous for laptops that no longer have a LAN port. This ensures a fast and stable data transfer, which is required for services such as video conferences.
You won’t find a better variety of ports
Whatever you wish to connect, with EIZO you enjoy full flexibility. Because Working with the Best always means being optimally equipped for everything.
The monitor can be used as docking station even without USB-C. All that is needed – in addition to the graphics signal connection – is the USB upstream port on the monitor to be connected to the laptop via a second cable. This means peripheral devices connected to the USB ports on the monitor can also be used (and charged).
Multi-screen solutions, fewer cables
Connect multiple monitors without cumbersome and excessive cabling thanks to daisy chaining: multiple monitors can be easily daisy chained via DisplayPort or USB-C (depending on the model). That means only one monitor needs to be connected to the computer, while the rest are then connected to one another, significantly reducing the number of cables trailing out of the PC.
Focussed work. Zero interruptions
The ultra-slim design of our monitors allows for a multi-screen operation with virtually no transition, and no wide bezels to disrupt your workflow, providing you with the best conditions for multi-tasking or running applications in parallel.
KVM switch and picture-by-picture
Double control, double comfort
It has never been easier to use two PCs at the same time. Experience total control and comfort – not to mention an incredible amount of space and tidiness – at your desk like never before thanks to KVM switch and picture-by-picture mode.
KVM switch – two PCs, one control
Some of our monitors have two USB upstream ports as well as an integrated KVM (keyboard video mouse) switch and can be used as a keyboard/mouse switch. This means that you can use two computers with just one keyboard and one mouse, allowing you to use both your personal computer and your company computer while working from home, for example.
All the advantages of the KVM switch at a glance:
- Fewer peripheral devices (mouse/keyboard) required
- Easy to switch between signal sources
- Improved ergonomics
Our Picture-by-Picture mode allows you to display the image signals from two PCs on the same monitor at the same time without any issue. That’s because Picture-by-Picture mode enables you to display different signal sources on one screen. You can also choose which signal is displayed on the right-hand side of the screen and which is displayed on the left-hand side.
Thin Client mount
If, as far as you’re concerned, there’s no such thing as too tidy...
...and you want to save even more space, you might like our compact Thin Client mount, which can be attached directly to the monitor. It finally makes long expanses of cables and workstation chaos a thing of the past.
