    Our new hybrid way of working: how to make the most of it to be truly successful

    After months working from home, on sofas, at kitchen tables and embracing digital and virtual ways of working, many companies are facing a progressive return to the office. 

    What we are witnessing today is a greater flexibility and renewed mindset to build a hybrid environment that can be sustained over time. The flex office is gradually becoming part of the future plan.
     As part of this flexible working as well as flexible desks, we need to get the most out of the monitors rather if we are working at a shared workstation or in our home set up.

    How USB-C technology can help employees and employers adapt to the new way to work

    Some users may have already discovered the wonders of USB-C technology, an emerging connectivity standard that enables users to connect and power up their laptop at the same time. A single slim cable carries both power and video signals– all on its own; no other help is needed. Since it’s so easy to configure (only one cable, with a symmetrical plug) it makes your set-up ready for use extremely easily.

    Choosing a monitor with USB-C makes workstations ready for any employee or user, who only need one cable to connect and be fully active. This extreme usability makes changing workstations in open offices more comfortable and easier, without the need of swapping cables or bringing laptop chargers. Moreover, using just one cable helps reduce clutter while enabling and enhancing major portability for flexible workers who alternate remote working with days at the office: it only takes a second to plug or unplug it, and no charger is needed.


    How does it work?

    This magical single cable works wonders: USB-C (DisplayPort alternate mode) transfers the display signal, as well as high-speed data, while powering and charging your laptop at the same time (USB Power Delivery). AOC monitors sport USB-C ports that can deliver up to 90W to devices.

    Type-C ports are generally extremely fast, based on the protocol they rely on. USB-C standard protocol is either USB 3.1 or USB 3.2, with a maximum speed of 10 Gbps. The latest USB-C cables can even transmit an image signal of 4K UHD with a refresh rate of 60Hz, or 60 frames per second. They’re fast and highly efficient. With such an increase in speed, your business is more productive as your data transfers are now completed in the blink of an eye.

    Who can use it?

    Anyone with a recent laptop already has a USB-C port available and can immediately enjoy how fast its data transfer and recharge are, and how comfortable it is. Its high-speed data and image signal (up to 4K) can support any professional, from any field: graphics, video, financial and many more. Pro-users, flex-office returners and fully home office employees alike can all benefit from this productivity-boosting technology.
