San Mateo, CA – November 8, 2018 – Kensington®, the worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, announced today that its LD5400T Thunderbolt™ 3 Dual 4K Dock with K-Fob™ Smart Lock has been named a CES® 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for the Computer Accessories product category. The game-changing 2-in-1 docking solution combines the productivity benefits of a Thunderbolt 3 dock with cutting-edge laptop locking technology to give Mac and Windows users more speed, more pixels, more power, and more possibilities.
An annual program that celebrates outstanding design, the CES Innovation Awards recognizes honorees across 28 product categories. A panel of judges, including designers, engineers, and members of the tech media, reviews submissions based on design, functionality, consumer appeal, engineering, and how the products compare with competition. Kensington’s LD5400T Thunderbolt™ 3 Dual 4K Dock with K-Fob™ Smart Lock was chosen as an honoree in the Computer Accessories product category for bringing electronic keyless locking to universal docking.
Kensington’s LD5400T Thunderbolt 3 Dual 4K Dock with K-Fob™ Smart Lock enables users to take advantage of the full capabilities of Thunderbolt 3. It has two Thunderbolt 3 ports: one for computer connection with power delivery, video, and data transfer; and the other for connection to peripheral accessories such as USB-C devices or daisy chaining up to five additional Thunderbolt-enabled devices. The LD5400T also provides four USB 3.0 ports (5V/0.9A), a 1 Gbps Ethernet port, and a combo 3.5mm audio in/out port. Users can connect one 5K monitor or dual 4K monitors via DisplayPort™ or HDMI, to support crisp resolution, contrast, and color depth.
The LD5400T Thunderbolt 3 Dock with K-Fob™ Smart Lock offers encrypted security with the simplicity of keyless locking. The result is cutting-edge protection and corporate security policy compliance with physical locking. It is available in a Single User version for a simple locking experience for fixed-desk users, or a Multi User version giving IT administrators master access to all stations, such as those used for shared, hot-desking, or hoteling workspaces. The station can be secured to any fixed object with the removable tethered lock cable, using the built-in Kensington Security Slot with a cable lock, or by using the desktop mounting holes. Kensington’s Register & Retrieve™ program provides secure cloud-based K-Fob replacement, in case the K-Fob is lost.
Adjustable security arms accommodate 11–15 inch thin and light laptops, and easily adjust without tools. The laptop rests on scratch-resistant cushioned bumpers that protect the screen and frame from cosmetic damage. The dock’s professional locking design conforms to Kensington’s industry-leading testing standards for durability, provides unobstructed access to the laptop’s side ports, and requires no laptop modifications.
The prestigious CES Innovation Awards are sponsored by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)™, owner and producer of CES, the world’s largest and most influential technology event. CTA has been recognizing achievements in product design and engineering since 1976.
Kensington’s LD5400T Thunderbolt™ 3 Dual 4K Dock with K-Fob™ Smart Lock will be displayed in the Innovation Awards Showcase at CES 2019, which will run January 8-11, 2019, in Las Vegas, Nevada. CES 2019 Innovation Honoree products are featured on CES.tech/Innovation.
