DisplayPort Alternate Mode allows the type-C port to transmit data/video over multiple display interfaces. Type-C ports capable of carrying DisplayPort signals are known as video transmission or DP Alt Mode.
However type-C is a versatile interface standard. Therefore, compatibility information is complicated. Some USB type-C systems support DP Alt Mode while others do not. Some can be powered and charged via USB PD, while others cannot.
WAVLINK MST docking stations/ adapters take advantage of most USB type-C features, including Displayport Alt mode and USB Power Delivery protocol. Please confirm whether the built-in type-C port of the host system supports Displayport alt mode before purchasing.
Note: WAVLINK type-C MST docking station does not work USB type-A computer without USB type-C port.
