What is Central Station and How Does it Work
Central Station is an IT hub available in a wired and a wireless version which can be set up to connect all your compatible devices to the one network. Simply bring your notebook back to your desk, and reconnect your PC to your compatible USB peripherals, external display, and Ethernet. With the wireless version, this happens with zero touch: just leave the Central Station USB dongle in your notebook and bring the notebook to within one meter of Central Station. With the wired version, just plug in a single USB cable and watch everything reconnect.
So, with Central Station you no longer have to plug and unplug your mobile phone, MP3 player, tablet, or external storage drive—not to mention your mouse and keyboard. They stay connected to Central Station (within one meter of Central Station for the unwired version and via the USB cable for the wired version) and ready to use as soon as you bring your PC back to your desk. Plus, Central Station can be set to charge your hand-held devices, even when you take your laptop away.
Maximise Productivity with Extreme Simplicity
The benefit of Central Station is that one minute you can be multi-tasking on your sofa—watching TV while checking your email—and the next minute you can be back at your desk, instantly reconnected to your mouse, keyboard, MP3 Player, and external HDD. Also, you get the additional benefit of an extended desktop on a large secondary display. Central Station is a powerful IT hub that allows you to easily connect and reconnect without changing a single setting or connecting a single cord.
In a business environment, it’s so easy to grab your PC and run to a meeting, and then instantly reconnect to everything when you sit down at your desk again. Plus, keep the same Central Station through multiple generations of compatible PCs.
Engineered for the Demanding PC User
The large 23” or 27” size of the Central Station display provides a huge expansion or extension to your PC workspace (mirror or extended desktop mode). It also includes two USB 3.0 ports so you can experience cutting-edge speeds from your peripherals. And, you can experience Full 1080p HD video by connecting a compatible set top box, Blu-ray player, or game console to Central Station via HDMI. With Central Station, your PC audio is automatically routed to your desktop speaker system for superior sound.
Breakthrough Picture Quality and Ergonomic Design
As with all Samsung LED* displays, Central Station delivers breakthrough picture quality and, on the consumer models, the dual-hinge height-adjustment provides ergonomic support: raise the display to eye level or lower it to be flush with your laptop display. The professional models feature a standard full-range height adjustment.
Central Station is available in 23 and 27 inches, wired or wireless. For the consumer version, look for the following model numbers: (wired) C23A550U, C27A550U, (wireless) C27A750X. For the business/professional version, look for (wireless) C23A650U C24A650X.
