Matrox Thunderbolt Docking Station for MacBook Pro and MacBook Air

Today’s MacBooks are powerful enough for most corporate users but their cumbersome connectivity makes them inconvenient, and their small screens and keyboards make them uncomfortable to use in the office all day.

The new Matrox DS1 docking station addresses those shortcomings.

Matrox DS1 gives you the most from your Thunderbolt port by letting you add a large display, a full size keyboard, a mouse, a wired network, and many other peripherals using a single cable. In an instant, you enjoy all the productivity benefits of a desktop computer.

Save time everyday by being able to come and go without disconnecting and re-connecting all your devices. One Thunderbolt connection does it all. You can tame the tangle of cables cluttering your desk and save wear-and-tear on your laptop.

Screen Size Matters

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

Gigabit Ethernet Restored

Matrox DS1 adds gigabit Ethernet access to laptops that don’t 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 peripherals need like a 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

Matrox DS1 is the last device in your Thunderbolt chain. Conveniently positioning your Thunderbolt storage with pass-through between your laptop and your DS1 lets you easily remove just your laptop, or your laptop plus storage, with a single disconnection.
