Boost Your Business Productivity with the Diamond BVU Multi-Display Adapters

When it comes to setting up your company’s workstations for your employees, there are a few options. One of these would be to create a working atmosphere where ideas are inspired, where talent grows and where productivity increases. In this article, we’ll look at how to boost your business productivity with the Diamond BVU Multi-Display Adapters. These adapters make it easy for your employees to have access to much more work-related content than ever before. With added monitors, the company productivity level will soar and standards for best work practices will be set.

So What is a Multi-Display Adapter?
A multi-display adapter connects another monitor to your PC, laptop or even tablet. With the Diamond BVU adapters, you can enhance your laptop’s visual experience by adding 2, 3 or up to 6* displays, in minutes. Add multiple displays to your PC/laptop/tablet without the hassle of opening your desktop case and adding costly discrete graphic cards.

What are the Benefits of a Multi-Display Adapter?
In a business environment, a multi-display setup enhances productivity and inspires new ideas in many ways.

BVU165

More monitors equals more screen real-estate. This means that while a worker’s focus may be on one task at a time, one can’t help but to multi-task when they’ve got 2 or more screens side-by-side. Having multiple applications open simultaneously can have a real impact on processing information more quickly and accurately. Have spreadsheets across one monitor, have research sites open on another and news and stock market data on yet another.

The more multi-display workstations you set up, the less time your employees will spend on closing and opening files and windows which often times leads to distractions and losing one’s train of thought. With everything becoming more streamlined and less cluttered on their PC screens, the morale and productivity of your company will only increase.

BVU adapters for multi-display

*Each Display requires an additional BVU adapter, maximum 6 per system. All of the Diamond BVU Adapters are completely USB powered, so no additional power requirements are necessary and they consume 80% less PC power than internal discrete graphic cards.

With the affordability of high-quality PC monitors these days, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be setting up a triple monitor desktop.  The Diamond BVU165 Multi-Display Adapter, lets you pan across three screens at your home or office. Imagine having all of your work spread out over three spacious monitors; spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, school projects, online content, design layouts, videos, your music library, all displayed at the same time.

If you’re a fan of multi-tasking or you just want more content in your field of view, then the BVU165 is perfect for what most PC users could probably agree on – more is better. Whether it’s business or leisure, the best PC users are those who are potentially saving lots of time by staying on top of their projects or making use of more content that is available to them at any given moment.

If you’re using a laptop as your main PC, below are the steps to creating a triple monitor desktop. Remember, each monitor requires its own BVU165 adapter.

Step 1. Make sure your laptop has at least three USB ports. Simply connect the included USB 2.0 cable to your laptop. Then connect the other end of the USB cable to the BVU165 adapter.

Step 2. With a DVI, VGA or HDMI cable connect the BVU165 adapter to your display monitor. If you have a USB hub, then you can add even more monitors than the amount of USB ports your laptop has on board – in fact, up to six per system.
