HIS did it again with Multi-View x2 Adaptor 05/29/2013
This “His Multi-View x2 Adaptor (Model# - HMVX2-MAC-PC)” is a new and improved brother of the “HIS External Video Card Multi-View + Sound Adapter USB3.0 to HDMI Interface”. It has two digital outputs to only one Superfast USB3.0 input. It features both HDMI and DVI ports, allowing connection up to 2 additional displays. The maximum resolution is up to 2048 by 1152 resolution, high enough for any HD movie or multi-displays on one screen watching various stock performances. Because it is connected to an USB3.0 port, the transmission speed is 10 times faster than USB 2.0. This performance boosts the image quality on large displays, as well as enabling enthusiastic gaming or investment professionals or system centers using multiple displays! Most professionals are replacing their desktops with notebooks, this HIS Multi-View x2 is a perfect companion. I know because I was looking for this adaptor to connect n monitors for training sessions. The package comes with a DVI-HDMI adaptor so I have 3 choices of connections:
1. HDMI and DVI
2. HDMI x2
3. DVI x2
This flexibility allows me to connect with multiply large flat screen TV’s or LED monitors. Because it uses one USB3.0 port to provide two high performance digital outputs, new notebooks with 3xUSB3.0 ports can literally add 6 more viewing devices. If more devices are required as in my case leading a training session providing one monitor per student as they practice on their notebook while following my demonstrations, I simply add a 4-port USB3.0 expander to provide an additional 8 viewing devices. Now I see the real powerful solution attributed to this His Multi-View x2 Adaptor.
Like my previous review on the “HIS External Video Card Multi-View + Sound Adapter” the outputs make this adaptor universally useful for both LED monitors and TV’s. HIS Digital has done it again with high performance products at a very reasonable cost. The HDMI connection replaces all those cluttering A/V cables with one HDMI cable. For example, I connected my notebook’s USB3.0 port with this Multi-View x2 Adaptor to the HDMI input of my Sony 46” TV, and I was blown away with a blue disc movie on big screen with big sound – digital sound! It is really worth the money to invest on this adaptor with an HDMI+DVI – because there is no more teeny sound on my 14” notebook speakers/screen. If your notebook does not have USB3.0 ports, which I tested with an USB2.0 port, the screen performance is acceptable. But when I insert a USB3.0 ExpressCard to my old notebook, the screen suddenly comes alive! Remarkable. Amazing. Totally awesome. Like what Amex says in 1975: “Don’t leave home without it.”
The simple white casing seems a little off of its high performance and usability to the dollar value.
This is truly a gift to those who wanted n display monitors or TV's. Trainers, System Centers, Virtual servers, Engineering and Investment professionals can definitely use it to expand the number of LED views. Power users can definitely benefit from the x2 expansion views to their notebooks.
