New Docking Stations Optimize USB-C Connectivity and User Access to All Peripherals and Accessories, While Adapters Enable High-Quality Video Output
Kensington®, a worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business and home office professionals, has expanded its line of USB-C products with three new docking stations and two new adapters that enable users to optimize the USB-C connectivity of their computers: SD4600P USB-C™ Universal Dock with Power, SD4500 USB-C™ Universal Dock, SD1500 USB-C™ Mobile Dock, CV4000H USB-C™ 4K HDMI Adapter, and CV2000V USB-C™ HD VGA Adapter.
