PALO ALTO & TAIPEI to enhance the growth of the universal docking station market, ASUS has chosen to integrate DisplayLinks USB virtual graphics processor, the DL-165, into the ASUS USB Universal Docking Station.

The ASUS Universal Docking Station is said to be designed to completely manage Internet and peripheral connectivity for notebooks, creating a full desktop experience in the office or home. Busy workers and consumers alike can now connect all their computer peripherals such as mouse, keyboard, display, speakers, and wired Internet to their notebook through one device. With a single USB cable between the laptop and the universal docking station, it claims to enables improved mobility and a better user experience. Users are no longer tethered to their desks by multiple peripheral cables.

With the release of the ASUS Universal Docking Station, business and consumers everywhere will be able to enjoy the connectivity and productivity benefits of a system agnostic dock, said Dennis Crespo, DisplayLink executive vice president of marketing and business development. And being one of the largest computer manufacturers in Taiwan, ASUS is the company to help us make it happen.
