Go beyond 13 inches. Enjoy the productivity benefits and superior comfort of an affordable full-size display. Choose Matrox DS1/DVI for use with DVI displays or Matrox DS1/HDMI for use with HDMI displays with embedded audio.

Gigabit Ethernet for All

Matrox DS1 adds gigabit Ethernet access to laptops that do not have a built-in gigabit Ethernet port. Transfer data 18 times faster than WiFi and offload traffic from the corporate WiFi network.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0

Matrox DS1 adds an easily accessible SuperSpeed USB 3.0 port to your system. Transfer data 10 times faster than standard USB 2.0.

Expand Your Connectivity

Two additional USB 2.0 ports let you connect anything else you need—full-size keyboard and mouse, printer, scanner, storage, smart phone, optical drive, camera, flash drive, and other peripherals. Audio input and output connections support microphones, speakers, and headsets.

Daisy Chain Setup
