I currently use an LG 29UM67 which is a 21:9 monitor which supports the features you are talking about. I was able to get it on Amazon for about 350USD and it supports upto 4 inputs simultaneously, either with different inputs or daisy chaining I believe.
Here is a link to LG's website for the same - http://www.lg.com/us/monitors/lg-29UM67-P-ultrawide-led-...
I have some potential options that may be helpful.
Option 1: Using an in-between hardware solution
One option would be Screens a product that resides between the screen itself and your inputs. It is in Kickstarter now but allows you to customize a good number of inputs by running its own internal software. Another option that is available now from my ...
One of my go-to brands for cables and adapters is Anker and they make a USB-C to HDMI adapter that has some really strong reviews:
Anker Premium USB-C Hub with HDMI and Power Delivery
It's best to stay away from "house brands" and brands you have never heard of. A Google engineer has been testing various USBC cables and has found many which can fry your ...
Thanks for this BTW. I had a similar situation: DisplayPort ports on computers, DisplayPort switch, DisplayPort monitor. And of course, the windows jumping around every time I switched the monitor.
I tried and tried to find a pass-through EDID adapter for DP to no avail. All I could find were headless plugs meant to fool some server's GPU that it was ...
What you're looking for is called a Video Wall Controller. These are the boxes that you see behind the massive arrays of screens showing a single composited image in the big chain stores. They usually run around a $1000 or more. Without knowing the monitors involved I can't make a recommendation on which one to use. I know of no such products priced at ...
I suspect what you will need here is a 'virtual webcam' - i.e. it's not just a media (socket) converter you need here, but a 'box' which the computer, via USB, detects as a webcam.
Consider a normal webcam - it contains a small camera and a set of circuits which get that video from the camera to the computer. The computer recognises these circuits as 'a ...
A bit late to the party on this one, but I can tell you to avoid (at least for now) the Dell docks that may have been recommended to you at the time of your XPS-13 purchase. I tried both docks on two separate XPS-13s, and neither dock worked correctly. The Dell forums are filled with customers angry with the failings of the TB-15 dock, and it's not even ...
I am assuming that you want to connect the Intel Compute Stick to something that you can view the output of the device, correct?
First off, you cannot connect it into the HDMI port of your MacBook Pro. That's output only. That's like trying to connect the HDMI out port on a DVD player to the HDMI port on a game console - it's not going to work.
What you ...
Chaining worked, but I had to check with the manufacturer for model numbers and to confirm it would work. Their tech team kindly tested it for me, to check that the HDMI EDID adapter would work behind a DP to HDMI adapter, and told me the exact parts they had used to make it work.
The parts I used were from Lindy, and were a 41068 DP1.2 to HDMI 4k 60Hz ...
I'll throw in a recommendation for the Dell XPS line of products. These are super elegant machines with great specs. I especially like the "Infinity Edge Display."
As for your requirement of supporting 4K displays:
Every XPS model, from the 13" entry level to the top of the line 15" all have the same display support, so your options here are plentiful.
Going from Displayport to USB-C does not really work because while USB-C contains Displayport, the same is not true in reverse.
However, the ports on the Macbook Pro 2015 are techinically Thunderbolt 2, so what you are looking for boils down to this question you can find on the Apple Stackexchange. Is Thunderbolt 2 to Thunderbolt 3 possible?
This adapter ...
The Gigabyte GV-N105TOC-4GL is only 37mm tall, it is specified as Low Profile, and includes
Two 2 HDMI 2.0 ports
You could add an HDMI-VGA adapter for the VGA when needed, or perhaps you could use the motherboard video port of that Dell Optiplex 780 for VGA monitors in parallel with the add-in card; Gigabyte could ...
After taking a closer look at USB-C or Thunderbolt 3 and how they achieve video output, I don't think an adapter exists to connect an HDMI video source to connect to a USB-C display. Even the official HDMI website shows the conversion as being one-way: USB-C to HDMI.
A major caveat is that sending HDMI over USB-C requires the video source ...
I like the cut of this Lenovo's jib: the Ideapad 310 80ST0005US. With one of the new quad core Bristol Ridge APUs inside and support for HDMI 2.0, it definitely supports 4K screens. Likely to also be a relatively performative bit of hardware, as well.
It's a bit pricey, but perhaps now that you know you need HDMI 2.0 to be certain of 4K, you can find it, ...
I've had success using two devices. One which is a self-contained device:
Composite, S-Video, and HDMI to HDMI Converter and Switch with HDMI PAL NTSC Support - Monoprice.com
and the other which is a video capture card:

While there are DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual Link dongles, they appear to be quite expensive and require USB Power to function correctly.
This dongle from StarTech should support a DisplayPort input and convert to Dual Link DVI-D, which is needed for 144Hz at 1080p.
Note that the cheaper dongles available for DP to DVI are either Single Link or do not have ...
You could use a HDMI to SCART converter like this one.
Operation is fairly simple, you take the HDMI output from your computer and plug it into the HDMI input on the converter, then plug your TV's SCART cable into the SCART output on the converter.
Since your computer has a VGA output, add a VGA to HDMI converter like this one.
VGA output -> VGA to HDMI ...
What you need is called a demodulator. Due to the digital switchover, they are becoming more and more difficult to find, but can still be found if you know what to look for. It is essentially an NTSC TV tuner, sometimes with only a channel 3/4 tuner, that outputs some other standard output signal such as VGA, composite, Y-Pr-Pb, etc. Such devices used to ...
This is a monitor/TV that supports 4 HDMI inputs. It can display a single input or all of them simultaneously.
It has multiple layout options and comes with a remote. There is a video where you can see this feature in action.
It has been extensively reviewed:
