How the SD7000 Surface Pro Docking Station Expands Functionality and Creativity for Artists of All Types
Create the best creative desktop experience with your Surface Pro docking station by making use of the following features:
1. Position Your Surface Pro in Desktop Mode or Studio Mode
The two-position hinge on the docking station makes it easy for you to use and display your Surface Pro in the way that works best for you.
Desktop Mode positions the Surface Pro as a display, perfect for when you want to watch the animation you have created or simply wish to use the tablet as a monitor.
Studio Mode puts the Surface Pro at a perfect drafting table angle. Draw, paint, edit, and more in this comfortable position, while the Surface Pro remains docked.
The Kensington SD7000 Surface Pro Docking Station makes it easy to switch between the two modes so you can work comfortably and then view your creations both at a preferred angle.
2. Connect External Monitors and Displays
Want to view your art on a different display, or take advantage of a multi-monitor set-up? The docking station offers both HDMI and DisplayPort++ outputs, allowing you to connect your Surface Pro to up to two monitors.
This means that, including the Surface Pro itself, you can enjoy up to a three monitor set-up which can increase your productivity and creativity. For example, you could have a reference image on one monitor, draw on your Surface Pro, and have your entertainment of choice playing on the other.
3. Extend Your Desktop Capabilities with Five USB Ports
The SD7000 makes it easy to connect all of your peripherals, devices and external storage to your Surface Pro by offering four USB 3.0 ports and one USB-C port.
4. Keep Your Surface Pen Conveniently Close
You’ll be ready whenever inspiration strikes, thanks to the magnetic connection available with the Surface Pen. Integrated into the docking station is a magnetic connection to hold your Surface Pen, meaning it’s ready for you to take notes, make annotations, or doodle the second an idea comes to mind.
Never lose your thought or idea again – keeping the Surface Pen available is much like having a digital notepad at your desk, ready whenever you are.
5. Connect to the Internet at Gigabit Speeds
