Believe it or not, there are times when you stumble across something on your smartphone or tablet and wish you could see that content on a desktop monitor.

First, you will need a USB OTG cable, to connect the USB DisplayLink dock cable (USB Type A) to the Android device. Then connect the other end to the DS3900V2. All USB 2.0 and 3.0 devices are supported. Keep in mind, if the device is USB bus powered, you may have to attach it to an externally powered USB hub first, as the Android device might not be able to provide enough power.

Saving Time with Diamond Multimedia Products

Your time is valuable and it should be treated as such. There are many ways to save time when doing business, playing games or surfing the web on our PCs, laptops or tablets and smartphones. If you value every minute of your day, then saving time with Diamond Multimedia products is one way to ensure that you get projects done faster, upload and connect to online content quicker and waste no energy getting there.

For every menial task that takes up a minute or two every day, how much of that time translates into lost time away from doing other things in your life? Your time is worth more. Below are a few Diamond Multimedia devices that I find, are truly an asset to saving time and getting more tasks done by organizing your digital work space in a neat, efficient and timely manner.

The Diamond USB303HE is a Super-Speed Hub with a Gigabit Ethernet port for faster internet and USB plug-and-play functionality. It’s simple, compact and goes with you and your laptop wherever you go. The 3 ports on the USB303HE can be used to plug in desktop peripherals that are stationary, so you don’t have to carry around a bunch of devices with you.

pic2

The Diamond Ultra-Dock DS3900 is a Dual-Video docking station similar to the USB303HE but comes with much more connectivity. This device is a bit more sizable but still fits anywhere on your desk, vertically, saving you space and time. The thing I like about this product though, is that you can leave all of your desktop peripherals connected to it, and just plug and unplug your laptop, tablet or Ultrabook as you come and go. With an HDMI port, you can even have a large screen TV nearby and watch your favorite videos and movies.

pic3

The Diamond Stream2TV WPCTV3000 is a wireless HD display adapter for your mobile device or PC. It wirelessly streams all of your content from your smartphone or tablet onto a big-screen TV. It also mirrors your laptop or PC screen. The WPCTV3000 also streams content to projectors and is very useful for educators and executives who want a fast, reliable way to convey their messages. With all the wires and cables of conventional methods of PC to TV streaming, the amount of time untangling and reorganizing your wires can lead to a lot of lost time.

The Diamond BVU3500 is a multi-display adapter that can be used to connect your HDTV, projector, laptop, tablet, Macbook or Ultrabook. You can have multiple monitors set up on your desk and just use your laptop or tablet as your main PC. Have up to six monitors* set up and view more content than ever before. Again you can have everything hooked up and all you have to do is plug and unplug your laptop and you’re off.

*Each display requires its own BVU3500.

The Diamond WR600NSI is a dual-band 2.4 GHz/5.0 GHz wireless range extender which can be plugged in anywhere in your home or office to provide a stronger and clearer WiFi signal. A wireless bridge support can convert your wireless signal to a wired Ethernet connection, connecting it to internet-ready devices such as HDTVs, game consoles, Blu-Ray and media players. The WR600NSI can also create a hotspot so you can quickly be online in places such as hotels.

The Diamond Game-Caster HD GC2000 is a game capture device that lets you capture and edit your game-play from gaming consoles and upload them to YouTube, Twitch or Facebook. Its LOOP-THROUGH function lets you record and play simultaneously with no delay as well as provide real-time Voice Commentary.  The GC2000 is an all-in-one gaming console companion that will become an important asset for anyone who wants to quickly upload their game strategies and tutorials.

Adding Dual Video to Your Laptop or Tablet with the Diamond MDS3900 Ultra-Dock

This week we’ll explore one of the most incredibly useful devices out there for your laptop or Windows tablet. When it comes to great quality and getting the most bang for your buck, the Diamond MDS3900 Ultra-Dock should always be a part of your desktop simply because of its versatility. The MDS3900 is a Dual Video USB 3.0/2.0 Mini-Docking Station and is by far the coolest device for adding dual video to your laptop or Windows tablet. It offers a single solution for installing multiple monitors and displays at 1080P high definition resolutions.

pic2

The MDS3900 Ultra-Dock is a breeze to use because of its simple plug and play technology. It is fully compatible with Ultrabooks and Macbooks as well as Windows tablets and laptops, it’s sleek and compact and has a small footprint on your desktop. I especially love the way it sits on my desk as it always stays out of the way of all my other important peripherals and devices.

pic3

The MDS3900 supports dual head video output, support for HDMI and DVI/VGA simultaneously. This means I can have a big-screen TV hooked up with a standard HDMI cable to my workstation as well as being connected to another DVI monitor.

pic4

The other thing I love about the MDS3900 is that it supports a Gigabyte Ethernet connection with its on-board Ethernet port. You can upgrade or add Ethernet wired connectivity to your laptop, Macbook, or Ultrabook with a single USB cable.

pic5B

The Diamond MDS3900 Ultra-Dock comes with all the accessories needed to get set up fast and you’ll be enjoying all of the benefits of enhancing your visual experience by expanding your visual space. The MDS3900 also comes with a DVI to VGA dongle so that you can connect a projector or monitors that are only equipped with VGA ports. This is what separates Diamond Multimedia from all the others; it’s commitment to customer satisfaction. I would have had to go out and buy another adapter if I wanted to use this with my projector, but the dongle being included in the box is just another way that the MDS3900 more than pays for itself.

pic6

So if you’re looking for an extremely helpful and creative way to utilize the maximum potential of the displays on your PC/laptop/tablet and want a reliable, compact solution, the Diamond MDS3900 is the way to go.

Add an Ethernet Port with the Diamond USB303HE and Leave Your Slow Internet in the Dust

Sure, these days internet connections can be fast. Well, sometimes. We all know that we can get some slow connections, which often times leads to half-hearted internet searches. That could lead to lost production or not viewing enough varied content.

I rely on my laptop a lot and most of the time I use it for surfing the web, but sometimes I wish it could be faster. That’s when I moved on and adapted to the world of 10/100/1000 Mbps network speed and started using the Diamond USB303HE. It’s a Super-Speed USB 3.0 Hub with Gigabit Ethernet Port.

pic2

Most new laptops and Ultrabooks don’t come with wired Ethernet ports to accommodate a thinner design. However this is a disadvantage to those who want more speed and reliability when it comes to internet speeds. The Diamond USB303HE is a great upgrade for people who solely rely on a 10/100 Mbps network. The USB303HE is 10/100/1000 Mbps which can greatly boost your web surfing. Just remember faster Ethernet equals faster internet.

It’s also an easy repair solution for systems with broken internal network adapters. Many users with broken or bad on-board Ethernet ports may send in their systems for repair which could get costly, or they may just get a new computer and dump the old one. The USB303HE is a low cost easy fix.

The Diamond USB303HE not only let’s you have access to Gigabit Ethernet, but is also a 3-port hub for any USB Plug-n-Play peripherals. Connect just about anything that has a USB 3.0 or 2.0 port, such as a mouse, keyboard, headphones, mic, printer and disk drives. It’s fully compatible with laptops, Ultrabooks, desktop PCs and Macbooks.

pic3

Again, I really love the way I can combine a much faster internet experience and set up a nice workstation with my laptop. The Diamond USB303HE and many other really cool multimedia devices are available at: www.diamondmm.com.

Adding a Monitor Using the Diamond DS3900V2 – Docking Station

This week we’ll be looking at a cool and easy way to have instant access to not only external devices and peripherals, but the all-important extra dual-video monitor. Why not use a docking station such as the Diamond DS3900V2? It’s your desk – simplified.

With the use of a single USB cable hooked up to your main PC, laptop or tablet, you can have everything set up just the way you like it and working or surfing the internet becomes a breeze.

pic2

Ultimately, your goal is to have a desktop that practically takes care of itself. That means making your life easier. The Diamond DS3900V2 Docking Station lets you keep everything on your desk untouched by simply leaving them plugged in – and that includes extra monitors.

You can enjoy Dual-Video by connecting extra monitors via the ports that come on the DS3900V2, such as HDMI, DVI and VGA, all in 1080P resolution.

proclockerpic

Again, the DS3900V2 Docking Station can be used for all sorts of peripherals, including printers, camcorders, external disc drives, speakers, microphones, headphones, keyboards and mice. There’s even an Ethernet port for your network connection.

When you come into your office with your laptop and you do not have a docking station, you have to plug in your mouse, external keyboard, speakers and all of your other peripherals individually, every single time. What a hassle. If you don’t remember which device was plugged into your laptop there is a good chance drivers will be installed each time. Using your laptop at home you’ll encounter the same problem. You have to reconnect your printer, mouse, keyboard, etc and again if you don’t plug them into the same port each time you will have the problem with drivers reinstalling. With the dock there are no problems. You simply plug the dock into the same port and no drivers will be installed.

The DS3900V2 also prolongs the life of your PC’s USB ports. Rather than using all of your computer’s USB ports you only have to use one.

pic3

So if you’re looking for a way to keep all your stuff, including that extra monitor, permanently hooked up to your PC, take a look at the DS3900V2 by Diamond Multimedia. I think you’ll be amazed at how many things can be connected.
