Slow transfer rates can cause you to have choppy streaming and lag
when watching video. By upgrading the chipset we have greatly increased
the speed and power of the Minideck 3.0 by adding real-time adaptive
compression technology. In order for your computer, the Minideck, and
your monitor to transfer data, the data needs to be compressed. This
process of compressing and decompressing data can affect your transfer
rates. Real-time adaptive compression balances compression methods
from moment to moment based on content, USB bandwidth, and CPU power
availability. That means that you have the best possible USB graphics experience at all times.
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 is capable of achieving transfer rates of up to 5 Gbps.
That’s ten times faster than USB 2.0. USB 3.0 is also bidirectional,
which allows your external devices to send and receive data
simultaneously. All of that translates into fast, reliable video that
you can display on multiple screens without lag.
Note: If you don’t have USB 3.0 ports, the Minideck 3.0 will still
work and the updated chipset means it will still be faster than older
Minidecks. However, to take full advantage of the Minideck 3.0s
capabilities, you’ll need USB 3.0 ports on your device.
After a one time driver installation the Minideck will work just by
plugging it in. Drivers and instructions are on an included flash drive
for quick easy installation.
