SAN MATEO, Calif. – January 11, 2021Kensington®, the worldwide leader of desktop computing and mobility solutions for IT, business, and home office professionals and The Professionals’ Choice, today announced that it has been named a CES® 2021 Innovations Awards Honoree for two products: StudioDock™ and UVStand™ Monitor Stand with UVC Disinfection Compartment. The announcement was made ahead of the first-ever, all-digital CES 2021, the world’s most influential technology event, happening Jan. 11-14, 2021.

The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association (CTA)®, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. An elite panel of industry expert judges, including members of the media, designers, engineers and more, reviewed submissions based on innovation, engineering and functionality, aesthetic and design.

Kensington StudioDock™ is the ideal desktop solution for people who want to maximize their productivity and creativity while using their USB-C-based iPad Pro or iPad Air. The iPad magnetically attaches to StudioDock in portrait or landscape modes and allows the use of a wide range of accessories that can be connected via USB (Type-A and Type-C), HDMI 2.0 video and Gigabit Ethernet ports, 3.5mm audio jack and SD 4.0 card reader. In addition to charging the iPad, the StudioDock includes Qi wireless iPhone and AirPod charging, and an optional Apple Watch charging accessory.

Kensington UVStand™ Monitor Stand with UVC Disinfection Compartment incorporates fully-contained UVC LEDs to safely, easily, and efficiently sanitize keyboards, mice, trackballs, cellphones, and other devices, by eliminating up to 99.9 percent of bacteria within 10 minutes. The spacious disinfection compartment accepts most full-sized keyboards and can be used to store desktop items to reduce desktop clutter. In addition, UVStand promotes healthy posture and optimal comfort, supporting one 34-inch monitor or two 24-inch monitors with a 40-pound weight capacity.

“We are very excited that the CTA has recognized our new StudioDock and UVStand as being among this year’s most innovative products,” explained Louie Yao, Director of Global Product Management at Kensington. “The selection of these products validates our ongoing efforts of our incredible engineering and design teams to bring to market products that increase productivity, maximize efficiency and promote the health of computer and mobile device users in home and office environments.”
