HD Media Station

An HD media station extends the capabilities of Cisco Cius. Media stations feature an adjustable foot stand, three USB ports for adding external devices such as a USB keyboard or a mouse, two Gigabit Ethernet ports, an audio jack, and a DisplayPort connection for connecting to an external monitor. Connecting your Cisco Cius to the media station also charges the Cius battery.


Caution You can adjust the foot stand of the HD Media Station to adjust the viewing angle. If you adjust the viewing angle of the media station, be sure to hold the Cisco Cius securely while doing so. Otherwise the Cisco Cius could fall out and become damaged.


Caution When connecting cables to the HD media station, route all cables through the middle of the media station foot stand.

The USB ports allow you to use any of the following accessories:

USB mouse

USB memory stick

USB-powered hub

USB serial console cable

USB Keyboard and Mouse

Not every USB keyboard or mouse works with Cisco Cius. However, most USB keyboards that are human interface device (HID) compliant will work correctly. Since all USB hubs need to be powered, keyboards that include one or more hubs are not allowed on Cius, because they contain a non-powered hub.

VDI Shortcuts

The keyboard shortcuts and mouse actions available in virtual desktop clients differ from those for other Cius applications.

Keyboard Shortcuts

Caution When connecting cables to the HD media station, route all cables through the middle of the media station foot stand. When connecting a DisplayPort cable to the media station, do not use the lowest two levels of the foot stand because the cable connector may come into contact with the desk. This can cause damage to the cable connector and can result in an unbalanced media station.
