The adapter is equipped with a flat, printed circuit cable that allows for a small footprint and flexibility. This means the cable itself is more sturdy and less prone to breakage from everyday use like traditional, round, copper cables.

The compact and easy to use flat profile enables the adapter to hug surfaces and take advantage of tight spaces. This flexibility saves space and eliminates clutter so that you don’t have to deal with the cable mess.

Measuring in at 1.7in x 1in x .4in (4.3cm x 2.3cm x 1.1cm), the small, compact size is great for travel and small desk spaces.

Lighter than a pencil, this adapter makes for a great spare and is easy to take from your desk to the conference room. Throw it in your bag and you’ll forget it’s there until you need it.

DisplayPort MST
Adapter is capable of passing Multi-Stream data. However DisplayPort MST daisy chaining is dependent upon the host system / graphics drivers / monitors being used.

FAQ

Q: Can this adapter support DisplayPort Multi-Stream Transport (MST) daisy chaining?
A: The cable is capable of passing Multi-Stream data. However, As new USB Type-C systems are released, DisplayPort MST daisy chaining is dependent upon the host system. Some Dell based MST setups may require certain setup steps to successfully configure MST daisy-chaining. Please reference the article here with Dell support and a step-by-step guide for MST configuration (fourth post in the thread). MST is not supported on MacBook/MacBook Pro systems.

Q: My system has multiple USB-C and/or Thunderbolt 3 ports. Can I add multiple Alt Mode adapters for multiple displays?
A: If your system supports multiple Thunderbolt 3 or USB-C Alt Mode outputs, then you will be able to use multiple adapters on one system. However, there are some Thunderbolt 3/USB-C Alt Mode systems that limit the video output to one port.

Q: Why doesn’t my desktop display when I connect my monitor to my system using this adapter?
A: There are a few things to double-check if your monitor is not displaying upon connecting our adapter. First, make sure that the DisplayPort connector is connected securely to a DisplayPort input port. Some monitors have both a DisplayPort input and DisplayPort output ports. Also, ensure that the input setting within the monitor’s menu is set to the DisplayPort source input. Some monitors may not automatically detect and change to the input port that is being used.

Q: Does your adapter support audio to my monitor/TV?
A: Yes! Our adapter is able to support the transfer of video and audio over DisplayPort. Please ensure that the monitor has a full-sized DisplayPort input port and built-in speakers by checking with the manufacturer. You may also need to set the specific display as the Default Playback Device within the Windows Sound settings in order to play audio over the connected display’s speakers.
