ALOGIC’s Dual 4K Universal Compact Docking Station’s twin HDMI outputs enable you to connect two external displays at resolutions up to 4K.
The dock’s inbuilt DisplayLink technology ensures you experience the highest-possible screen resolutions for your computer monitor, regardless of your computer model, or whether you connect to USB-A or USB-C ports.
When you expand your screen real estate with the CH2, you have better oversight of your work. This oversight can improve your efficiency and productivity.
The dock's USB-C data port will also be disabled when not connected to external power.
DisplayLink software is free to download via - https://www.synaptics.com/products/displaylink-graphics/downloads
Using the USB-C connection will provide better display options compared to the older USB-A connection.
The USB-C cable that comes with the CD2 also has a USB-A adapter so this dock can be used on older generation laptops.
We recommend using direct DisplayPort to DisplayPort cables from the dock to the monitor where possible.
IF the monitor only accepts HDMI connections, we recommend using an 'Active' DisplayPort to HDMI adapter (Part No: ULDPHDA-SGR) or a DisplayPort to HDMI cable (Part no: ULDPHD02-SGR).
Docking stations which use DisplayLink technology require software installed on the computer connected to them to function correctly.
Always ensure you have installed the latest DisplayLink software for your machine from the DisplayLink website at:
In addition to installing the DisplayLink software, MacOS Version 11 requires permissions being granted to the software for it to work correctly. These permissions allow the operating system to send video to the docking station to display on external monitors and do not pose any form of security risk.
The following is the process to correctly install and configure the DisplayLink software.

We have identified that the above version of Intel Display Drivers (Arc) conflicts with the current version of Display Link Software leading to windows becoming non-responsive and eventually a complete system crash.
This download installs the Intel Graphics Driver for Intel Arc A-Series Graphics. The driver provides support for Intel discrete graphics cards such as Arc A380, A770M, A550M, A730M, A370M and A350M Graphics (codenamed Alchemist).
In addition, the 12th generation Intel Core processors with integrated Iris Xe graphics and UHD graphics (codename Alder Lake-H, Alder Lake-P) are supported. (Technically all latest OEM Laptops with intel Graphics)
The Intel ARC Graphics Driver is the latest driver release for the Windows OS. Installing this Intel generic graphics driver will overwrite your computer manufacturer (OEM) customized driver.
OEM drivers are handpicked and include customized features and solutions to platform-specific issues. The generic Intel driver provides users the latest and greatest feature enhancements and bug fixes that OEMs may not have customized yet to address platform-specific needs.
Users facing this issue should uninstall the Arc versions & revert to OEM versions of Video Drivers from the OEM support websites.
Corporate customers should always use OEM drivers and report all issues to Corporate IT Teams through the vendor they purchased the platforms and support.
