New desktop accessory puts productivity into hyper-drive
Kensington®, a worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, today introduced its new SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station. The dock is designed to enhance the user computing experience at the desktop for greater productivity. Kensington will display the new SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station at ShowStoppers @ CES 2017, January 5, at table D-15 in the Lafite Ballroom, Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas.
Kensington SD5000T Thunderbolt™ 3 Docking Station — (SKU# K38232)
The SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station is a game-changer, allowing users to achieve greater levels of productivity. The new dock accommodates a single cable carrying up to 40Gbps of data in one compact port that supports dual 4K video and a complete array of desktop accessories connected at 8 times the speed of USB 3.0, while also providing up to 85W of laptop charging power. Whether it’s a video editor, graphic designer, content creator, gamer, or just someone who wants to simplify a 4K workspace, users will get more — more speed, more pixels, more power, and more possibilities. The 4K monitors can be connected with DisplayPort or passive adapters that connect with HDMI or DVI. The two Thunderbolt 3 ports are compact and do it all — delivering the fastest, most versatile connection to a wide range of displays and data devices in the market. And with Zero Footprint Mounting, users can mount the dock to the back of a 75mm or 100mm VESA-compatible external monitor (mounting plate sold separately), reducing desktop clutter.
“The SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Dock was designed for overachieving professionals who want to push productivity into hyper-drive,” said Louie Yao, Senior Global Product Manager, Kensington. “Thunderbolt 3 technology delivers the apex of desktop performance with 40Gbps of data transfer. The new SD5000T dock enables users to optimize the lightning speed and superior performance of Thunderbolt 3, with a single connection to all of their desktop accessories for a seamless computing experience.”
“Thunderbolt 3 offers an unprecedented level of connectivity, bringing extraordinary speed and versatility to desktop productivity devices, such as docking stations,” said Jason Ziller, Thunderbolt Marketing Director, Intel. “Products that have implemented this technology, like Kensington’s new SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station, are designed to give professionals cutting-edge performance and access to everything on the desktop, for unparalleled productivity.”
The Kensington SD5000T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station will be available in Q1 2017.
