DisplayPort is a digital display interface used to connect a video source to a display device (for example, a computer monitor) as well as other forms of digital data. DisplayPort is backwards compatible with VGA, DVI and HDMI audio/video interfaces through the use of an adapter (not included).
The 2big Dock passes the signal through the Thunderbolt 3 or USB 3.1 connection to the DisplayPort 1.2 expansion port.
Note on DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI adapters: The DisplayPort 1.2 on your LaCie 2big Dock does not support DP++ to HDMI adapters. If you do not have a DP 1.2 to HDMI adapter but still want to connect to an HDMI display, it’s recommended that you daisy chain your LaCie 2big Dock to the display using a USB-C to HDMI adapter (not included). This configuration is only possible if the LaCie 2big Dock is connected to your computer via a Thunderbolt cable.
Connecting the DisplayPort
- Insert the DP 1.2 end of the cable or adapter into the port on the back of the LaCie 2big Dock until it clicks into place. The cable/adapter is now locked into the DP 1.2 port.
- Connect the VGA, DVI or HDMI adapter to your configured audio/video display.
Disconnecting the DisplayPort
- Grasp the DP 1.2 end of the cable or adapter that’s connected to your LaCie 2big Dock.
- Hold down the release tab with your thumb, and then pull back to remove the cable from the port.
