Plugable, the leading developer of USB and Thunderbolt devices, launches the UD-6950H Horizontal 4K Display Docking Station for Windows users in the U.K. and four major European markets including Italy, Spain, Germany and France. The UD-6950H is the perfect solution for a streamlined and efficient workspace that maximizes productivity while eliminating clutter. The docking station solves the HDMI or DisplayPort dilemma by supporting two extra displays of either type. In addition, the dock adds six additional USB ports along with wired network and audio to connect any device to your laptop.





Streamlined Performance
The UD-6950H is a one-stop upgrade for Windows laptops or desktops. To provide users maximum flexibility with the monitors they connect, the dock offers two DisplayPort and two HDMI outputs for mirroring or extending a Windows desktop to up to two external monitors. The dual monitor capability allows users to multitask across various screens. The UD-6950H supports monitors from 720p up to 4K. Both the two DisplayPort and two HDMI outputs are backwards compatible, allowing interoperability with previous DisplayPort/HDMI specifications.

Wide Ranging Multi-Connectivity
The UD-6950H docking station streamlines connecting to other peripherals as an all-in-one solution for users. It features a Gigabit Ethernet port for hard-wired network connectivity, audio input and output ports to allow connection of external speakers, headphones or a microphone, and six USB 3.0 ports to connect peripherals such as a mouse, keyboard, flash drives, and more.

Fully Compatible for the Latest Platforms
The UD-6950H is compatible with most modern laptops and desktops running Windows 10, 8.1 and 7, and comes with the latest drivers and firmware. To further ensure compatibility and provide flexible host connectivity, Plugable also includes a USB 3.0 Type-C to Type-A cable and a USB 3.0 Type-C to Type-C cable.

The Plugable UD-6950H is available in the U.K. for £149.95 and in Germany, France, Spain, and Italy for €169.95. A 10% discount coupon is available on Amazon.

This press release went to quite great lengths to not say whether it was TB3 or USB-based, and if USB-based if it was based on type-C DP alt modes or Displaylink. Luckily the pictures make it clear that the latter is true, which also makes this a far less attractive solution. I suppose it'll do the job for an office setting, though.
