We have a projector that connects to our conference table.  We want to have a laptop dock into the conference table and show presentations.  We need a good docking station that will not compromise on quality when we dock and show DVDs or PowerPoints, etc...

Any brands or product suggestions would be appreciated.

Obviously need to know what brand/model laptop?

What benefit are you hoping to gain by using a docking station rather than just plugging the laptop in to a display cable connected to the projector?

Agreed. Docking stations are unique to a model of laptop.
You could use a USB port replicator maybe, but these often require specific drivers to work and may be pointless if the machines connecting to it won't be able to install these due to group policy restrictions etc.

One docking station is for
Toshiba
Satellite A355-S6925


It needs to look clean, instead of having cables layin on the conference table.  Not professional

So why not put wireless transmitter and receivers on the laptop and projector?

No cables required and you are not limited to just one brand of laptop.

Will the quality be the same with wireless?

Yes, unless you do video.  The link talks about limitations.
