Have you ever tried to connect your laptop to an external monitor? It’s great when you have a laptop, but want a larger screen when you are working at your desk.
I’m going to share two ways to connect to external displays using two different devices.
Connect Laptop With USB-C Connector to Display
Using ACCELL’s USB-C to DisplayPort Cable, you can connect your MacBook to any external display that takes a DisplayPort output.
- Will transport HD video & audio
- Up to HD 1920 x 1080
- Will support 4k resolution
- No external power needed (love this)
The USB-C port plugs into the USB-C port on your MacBook and the DisplayPort plugs into the compatible output on your monitor. It’s as simple as plugging in a cord. You will need to find the correct input on your monitor to be sure you can see it.
Connect Your Surface Pro 4 To 1 or 2 Displays
If you want to connect your Surface pro 4 to an external display (or 2 displays), use the UltraAV® Mini DisplayPort 1.2 to 2 DisplayPort Multi-Display MST Hub.
- No additional software is needed. You plug it in and it works.
- Will work with any device that has a mini port output like the Surface Pro 4
- Powered with the USB port.
- You can connect one or two monitors to the other end of the hub.
Now you are set to add 2 monitors to your desk. I love that it’s super easy! If you can plug in a cord, you can do this. I remember the days where it involved software and was very complicated. Gotta love technology!
Have you connected your laptop to an external display using ACCELL cords?
