Extron Launches USB-C Pro-AV Dock for UC Meeting Spaces

The UCS 601 4K USB‑C Dock has been designed for Teams or Zoom meetings in huddle and collaboration spaces that need maximum functionality with minimal AV hardware.


Extron has launched a 4K USB-C dock that will make meetings more efficient by facilitating the integration of USB peripherals such as cameras and microphones.

The UCS 601 connects USB-C laptops to HDMI displays, supporting up to three USB devices, and ensuring seamless data rates of up to USB 10 Gbps.

The dock offers intuitive collaboration in UC spaces, including simple rooms without a control system. It will automatically connect laptops to the room’s display and USB cameras or other room devices. As laptops are disconnected, the display will automatically go into standby mode, allowing users to collaborate with minimal interaction with AV hardware.

Its one-quarter rack width 2.5cm-high metal enclosure makes the UCS 601 easy to mount within furniture or under a table, using the included ZipClip 200 mounting accessory or in an equipment rack using an optional rack-mounting shelf.

The HDMI output is engineered to support resolutions of up to 4K, while the USB-C input efficiently handles video/audio and USB data, while charging the user’s laptop. The dock is compatible with platforms such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom Rooms.

Casey Hall, Extron’s chief marketing officer, said: “With USB cameras, microphones and other peripheral devices becoming more common in small huddle spaces, we are always looking for innovative ways to streamline the meeting experience for end users.

“The UCS 601 Pro 4K USB-C Dock leverages the full power of USB-C connections by providing a single connection for video, USB data and power for USB-C laptops. This takes small collaboration spaces with local and remote users to a new level.”
