Satechi has introduced its new Thunderbolt 4 Multimedia Pro Dock for creative professionals and content creators.
Stacked with 16 ports, the new Thunderbolt 4 dock features multiple USB, HDMI and DisplayPorts along with SD and micro SD card readers, an audio jack, and an Ethernet port. Compatible with both Mac and Windows PC, the dock lets users transform their workspace by providing Thunderbolt 40 Gbps bandwidth for connecting up to four external screens and high-speed peripherals while simultaneously delivering 96W of charging power to the host device.
The 16 ports below are situated on both the rear and front, with fewer on the front to preserve the sleek look of the dock, limiting clutter and maximizing creative space. They include: two DisplayPort; two HDMI 2.1; one Thunderbolt 4 to host; one USB-C 3.2 10Gbps; three USB-A 3.2 10Gbps; two USB-A 3.2 5Gbps; one USB 2.0 for charging up to 7.5W; SD and microSD card slots; 3.5mm audio jack in/out; and Ethernet 2.5Gbps. It also has a Kensington Lock and comes with the DC 20V main power included.
While using the dock, users will benefit from the Thunderbolt 4 port delivering 96W power to the laptop/computer, keeping the connected device charged and ready to go. For additional charging, two of the USB ports can be used to power up external phones and tablets.
The display capabilities include the option to add up to four screens at 4K 60Hz resolution. Windows PC users can experience video on up to four screens in extended mode as the operating system supports Multi-Stream Transport (MST), which is valuable for creators and gamers.
For Apple systems that support Single Stream Transport (SST), Mac M1 Pro/Max devices can output video in extended mode for up to two screens with an additional option to mirror two, while M1 and M2 Mac devices can support output to one screen in extended mode and one screen in mirror mode.
Creative professionals like content creators, photographers, and videographers, can stay connected and transfer files with the Thunderbolt 4 Multimedia Pro Dock. With a built-in Ethernet port, users will have an efficient and reliable connection with speeds up to 2.5 Gbps, which is 2.5 times faster than a standard Ethernet adapter.
File storage and transfer is also quick with 1 Gbps internet speed and 2.5 Gbps transfer speed that supports intermediate file transfer within the same network. External storage transfer can also be done seamlessly, supported by two UHS-2 SD and microSD card slots that can be used simultaneously with a high transfer speed of 312 MBs.
Constructed out of aircraft-grade aluminum with silicone rubber sides, the Thunderbolt 4 Multimedia Pro Dock is durable with curved edges and a classic space gray finish to complement the workspace. It can also conveniently stand vertically or lay horizontally thanks to the rubber stand pad.
Satechi’s Thunderbolt 4 Multimedia Pro Dock is currently available for US$350.
