          • Add support for VMware USB passthrough so guest OS can have dedicated display output

            For DL-3xxx and DL-5xxx devices especially.

            This is already working for MacOS but not working for Windows (as mentioned in DisplayLink KB 544870) and Linux.

            This will allow multiple DisplayLinks to be used on single VM hosts behaving like thin clients, which is an enormous user base and thus market potential.

            • I hope in the near future you could extend the "fit to TV" function to multiple displays. Thanks.

              • Connecting via Cat6 instead of USB3

                Would be nice to rackmount a few of my PCs in the garage and just gave displaylink devices on the desks kinda like dumb terminals. 3m USB 3 cable limit doesnt allow for this. Maybe its possible with usb extenders. But to get the hot and loud gaming PC's out of the rooms will be a win.

                • to integrate a PAUSE function into your firmware, that freezes the displayed content anc can eb activated/de-activated by keyboard.

                  Freeze functions on classical projectors were very popular, in particular for people facilitating workshops or holding seminars. With the introduction of LCD screens this feature disappeared. Display link could easily re-introduce this. Ideally, hitting a (user-definable) key combination would turn PAUSE on and off. In addition the status (frozen / unfrozen) should be displayed with the application icon.

                  Please go ahead :-)
