Kensington Adds New Compatibility for Mac OS X to USB 3.0 Docking Stations and Multi-Display Adapter Productivity Products

us us
 
<p><a href="http://www.kensington.com/">Kensington</a>,<strong> </strong>a worldwide leader in delivering <em>smart. safe. simple.&trade;</em> mobile accessories today announced that its celebrated line of USB 3.0 Docking Stations and Multi-Display Adapter products are now compatible with Mac OSX users. Designed with DisplayLink&lsquo;s new driver for Mac, Kensington&rsquo;s productivity devices will work with Mac OS X V10.6 Snow Leopard through OS X V10.8 Mountain Lion. The new compatibility enables Apple computer users to supplement connectivity to their devices, including MacBook Air, Pro or iMac.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>Using either of the Kensington USB 3.0 Docking Stations and Multi-Display Adapter, Apple users can now add multiple monitors, use additional USB ports, and leverage Gigabit Ethernet for fast data connection. The products are designed to help increase productivity and are ideal for hot desk environments where you are not restricted to one make or model of laptop. Research from Microsoft on the use of multiple monitors found up to a 50 percent increase in productivity for tasks, such as cutting and pasting. Similar research from the University of Utah discovered a 10 percent production increase ,with 33 percent fewer errors.</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>&ldquo;There&rsquo;s a growing demand from Apple users for additional connectivity to their hardware, and we at Kensington intend to meet that need. Macs by design are sleek and aesthetically pleasing, however, the tradeoff for slim form factors is the cost of connectivity,&rdquo; said Matt Evans, Product Marketing Manager at Kensington. &nbsp;&ldquo;For example, most MacBooks lack a standard display output for HDMI, DVI or VGA&mdash; the basic connections for projectors and monitors in the office environment. Our new Multi Display Adapter coupled with the new DisplayLink driver for Mac, gives Apple users the versatility they have been asking for back, so getting work done more efficiently is easy.&rdquo;</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>John Cummins, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at DisplayLink also agrees on the importance of Mac compatibility, saying, &ldquo;Given the high demand from the Apple community, adding Mac support to our USB 3.0 product sets was certainly high on DisplayLink's priority list. We've seen an increase in Mac computers being used both by consumers and in the corporate and enterprise environment. We are excited to work with Kensington to bring our technology to its lineup of USB docking stations."<strong></strong></p>
