How to connect your notebook with USB-C (Windows or Macbook) to CTOUCH Riva series displays
In the box, you can find a USB-C cable which supports video signal, touch feedback and charging. Connect the cable between Windows notebook or MacBook and Riva series display. Switch the Riva display to USB-C input. Riva Series will show the signal from your Windows notebook or MacBook and will also support the touch functionality.
Important is that the connected device supports the same functions as our Riva model offers.
TOUCH: All USB-C ports will support this so don't worry
VIDEO: ensure your PC/Mac supports DP Alt mode often the USB-C port is marked with a symbol.
CHARGE: Of course your device should be able to be charged via USB-C besides the original AC/DC adapter that was supplied with it.
Thunderbolt 3 connectors are often marked with and will standard support all function mentioned above including high speed data transfer (10 Gb/s) and (quick) charging up to 100 Watt.
For Windows devices touch feedback supports 32 points of touch via USB-C
For macOS devices (Macbook, iMacs), by default, only one point of touch is supported. In order to make advantage of multi touch inputs and gestures, you need to install UPDD driver for Mac.
