MST Hub - Mini DisplayPort to 3x DisplayPort
Increase productivity with multiple screens
The newest generations of computers are more portable than ever, which often means that you’re left with fewer video outputs and smaller integrated screens. This MST hub solves both of these problems by letting you connect three additional displays to your computer, which makes multitasking much easier.
Connect to any display
With the MST hub, you can use Mini DisplayPort video adapters and cable adapters that enable you to connect HDMI, VGA or DVI displays. This ensures that your MST hub will be compatible with virtually any television, monitor or projector.
Configure your displays for any environment
Using the MST hub, you can extend your desktop onto additional monitors and stream independent content to each display, giving you the freedom to multitask and increase your productivity. You can also mirror the same image onto multiple displays for remote viewing applications such as digital signage.
Use this multi-stream transport hub to connect three DP monitors to a single mDP 1.2 port
- Add additional displays to your Surface Pro 3
- Use one screen for reference data such as websites, while composing in another screen
- Dock your mDP 1.2 device and add three high-resolution displays at your workstation
- Create a panoramic video wall for DisplayPort digital signage applications
- Edit images, video or audio clips across three displays in any orientation or resolution
- Perfect for spanning a spreadsheet/worksheet across all three displays, to avoid side-scrolling
- Enjoy the panoramic views built into games and display helpful codes/walk-through data on a third display, at the same time
Look for StarTech Branded Packaging to ensure you are getting a genuine StarTech product.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Will this hub work with any computer & graphics card?
A: This hub will only work with computers & graphics card that have support for DisplayPort 1.2 and MST. StarTech.com recommends checking the specifications of your graphics adapter to determine if you have support for DP1.2 and MST. When using a DisplayPort 1.1 video card the MST hub will act as splitter, automatically mirroring your video source across all displays (resolution limitations apply).
Q: Does the hub work with Apple OSX?
A: Currently Apple OSX does not support MST. Support may be added in the future, however, at this time these hubs will not work with Apple computers.
Q: Does the hub work with DisplayPort adapters?
A: StarTech MST hubs do work with active and passive DP adapters. Please note, when converting to VGA, we recommend using StarTech.com part number DP2VGA3. We have noticed some compatibility issues when connecting using DP2VGA2 with certain VGA monitors.
Q: How do I setup the monitors and resolution once I’ve attached the monitors to the MST hub?
A: Your monitors can be configured using the operating system settings on your computer. These settings can be accessed through the screen resolution section of Display in the Windows Control Panel.
Q: Will the hub work with three 4K monitors?
A: No, while MST does support 4K, bandwidth limitations of DP 1.2 prevent the MST hub from supporting three 4K monitors simultaneously. Three monitors can be added, however, your resolution must be within the bandwidth capacity of DP 1.2. Please visit this production on the Startech website, for a detailed DP 1.2 bandwidth chart.
Q: Is there a way to increase the length of the mDP cable built into of the MST hub so it can comfortably connect to my Surface Pro 3 tablet?
A: Yes. You can use a Mini DisplayPort extension cable. We recommend MDPEXT3 as it has been rigorously tested with the MST hub.
Q: Why does the built-in touch screen on my Surface Pro 3 turn off when I connect three external monitors using the MST hub?
A: The surface Pro 3 only supports the use of three displays in total. If more than three external monitors are attached, the built-in touch screen on your Surface will be disabled.

Just got this adapter today and am using it with the Surface Pro 3 docking station and it works fine. I'm driving two monitors at 1920x1200 with no current plans for a third one, but have that option if I need it. I've undocked the tablet and docked it without sleeping/shutting it down and it comes back right where I left off.
If you're planning on driving two monitors only and have the Surface Pro 3 dock, you could just use the mini display port on the dock and on the Surface while it's docked.
Barry Watson in Product Improvement did send me another one of these MST Hubs with the new chips and I am happy to report that with a few configuration settings in Windows 8.1 it does indeed work with my Microsoft Surface Pro 3. The setup allows me to have an Asus 24in on the left, my surface in the middle and another Asus on the right. Which allows me to have three desktops. If you are a buyer consider these things first. 1.) Go to the display settings and configure the positions of the display. The identify tool will show you which display corresponds with the number. 2) Pick the display under each corresponding monitor in the setup and pick the monitor model. (This sounds silly but you will see) That should fix the problem. 3) Before returning it try and call StarTech. They sent me a new one because of the reason above. As far as the Apple issue it will work with my MacBook Pro but the con is that it is only a mirror of the desktop on both displays. StarTech says Apple doesn't officially support MST yet.
I just purchased a Surface Pro 3 with an Intel i5 Processor. Before purchasing I had done tons of research on the best solution for my dual Asus Monitors. I contacted StarTech and through the chat, the adviser told me that my Surface Pro supports Multi Stream Transport(MST) which is needed for this hub. He also said it is supported on my Early 2013 MacBook Pro. So I ordered the cables that they recommended which were $30 each and were DisplayPort to DVI. I got charged for the cables first then waited weeks to get the product because it was on back order. Finally when they got more after a week of waiting I was told they don't have any more. So I decided to order it from the retailer on Amazon. I tried first plugging this into my Mac.Read more ›
Setup was not as straightforward as suggested in the manual. After connecting the device (and the monitors) the PC should recognize all monitors after startup, however I had to reconnect some of the monitors a couple of times while the PC was running in order to get them recognized. It took me about 15 minutes and a couple of reboots in order to have the setup working.
Pro-Tip: if one of your monitors does not get recognized immediately on startup, disconnect the monitor, reboot, and reconnect the monitor while windows is running. If two monitors are not getting recognized, disconnect both, reboot, connect ONE of the missing monitors, reboot again, THEN connect the second missing monitor.
Please note that once windows has recognized all monitors it continues doing so, meaning no more hassle afterwards.
Only con I can list has not really something to do with the product but with the DP 1.2 standard. Many users (also me) have issues with their monitors to wake up after sleep (it's a known DP 1.2 problem when using MST's and/or daisychaining according to google, forcing affected users to hard-restart the PC each time it happened). Only solution for me was to disable "turn off the display" and "put the computer to sleep" in the power options of windows.completely.
Still, I prefer DP 1.2 over my old setup (external USB 3.0 graphics cards using displaylink technology), even with the limitation mentioned above, due to better performance.
So, in a nutshell, if you want to run a multi-monitor through one displayport, go for the product, but be aware of the known bugs of DP 1.2 (which may or may not affect you).

This worked fine until two of the output ports quit working. So I suppose it is a good enough device, but the quality is apparently poor.Published 1 day ago by Rockford Lhotka
