Lockbourne, OH - May 27, 2014 - StarTech.com, a leading manufacturer of hard-to-find connectivity parts, has announced the availability of a DisplayPort MST Hub (SKU: MSTDP123DP), as well as a Mini DisplayPort MST Hub (SKU: MSTMDP123DP). The new hubs make it easy for users to multiply their screen area by connecting multiple monitors or projectors to their DisplayPort 1.2 or Mini DisplayPort 1.2 laptop, desktop, or Ultrabook™ computer through a single video port.
The MST hubs are compatible with DisplayPort 1.2 and Mini DisplayPort 1.2 video cards, including AMD Eyefinity’s latest software that allows you to group monitors and arrange them for many different applications i.e. independent displays, and horizontal or vertical video walls for gaming. Additionally, When used with a multi-head video card, the hubs utilize the Multi Stream Transport (MST) capability offered by DisplayPort 1.2, to turn each video output into three distinct ports and offer an added level of scalability.
“Our new MST hubs offer users a simple way to add screen space for a more productive workstation, whether it’s for work or play” said John Mardinly, Senior Product Manager for StarTech.com’s line of A/V products. “From a functional standpoint, these hubs harness Multi Stream Transport capability offered by DisplayPort 1.2 to turn a DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort output into three distinct outputs. Where users will really see the benefit of using these hubs is in not only the graphical quality they offer, but also system performance. Since the hubs operate solely off of the system GPU and don’t use up other system resources, users can extend their screen space without sacrificing performance for scalability. The convenience plus the performance makes MST the best way to connect additional monitors.”

MSRP for StarTech.com’s DisplayPort MST Hub (SKU: MSTDP123DP) is $144.99 (USD) in the United States, $149.99 (CAN) in Canada, £129.99 (GBP exc. VAT) in the UK.
