Kensington Introduces New Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station
(5 months ago)
SAN MATEO, Calif: Businesses need a technical infrastructure with the flexibility to support a dynamic and increasingly mobile workforce while meeting the demands for mobile computing performance across various job functions.
Which is why Kensington, trusted worldwide to support the most advanced technology for business and home office professionals, developed the game-changing SD5200T ThunderboltTM 3 Docking Station for Windows and MacOS.
The Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station was engineered and tested for optimal performance with both MacOS and Windows users. The cross-platform compatible dock is the hyper-productivity solution for power users and was specifically designed to support mixed-computing environments with high transfer-speed requirements.
Kensington engineered the Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station to give power users like video editors, graphic designers, engineers, content creators, gamers, and anyone else who wants to simplify a 4K workspace, more of everything they need—more speed, more power, and more possibilities.
Supporting massive data and speed for power users
Thunderbolt 3 provides data transfer speeds up to 40 Gbps and supports 5K monitors or dual 4K monitors at 4096 x 2160 dpi 30-bit color @ 60Hz. The SD5200T connects with the crisp resolution, contrast and color depth of Ultra HD using its integrated DisplayPort connections or HDMI via an adapter.
"Professionals who spend their time editing videos, designing graphics, or creating content need to scrutinize every detail of their work to confirm that it is perfect before they show it to their customers," says Ben Thacker, VP & General Manager of Kensington. "With the Kensington SD5200T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station they can see more details spread across two screens, or they can compare two versions on side-by-side monitors, whichever they prefer."
Thunderbolt 3 is the future-proof technology choice
As computer hardware manufacturers streamline laptop devices to meet the mobility needs of their customers, the number and variety of ports available to connect peripherals to a laptop are reduced. With the Kensington SD5200T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station individuals have the ability to connect a combination of peripheral devices and accessories that connect via Thunderbolt, USB-C, USB 3.0, DisplayPort++, or Ethernet. In addition, there are many different USB-C connector configurations, and Thunderbolt 3 supports them all with a single connector and cable.
The Kensington SD5200T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station supports USB devices and peripherals that users depend on to optimize their productivity, offers simple plug-and-play implementation of newer devices designed to leverage Thunderbolt technology, and positions organizations to quickly implement new device solutions as they become available. By adding a Kensington SD5200T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station to their network now, an organization can support their current needs and be flexible to grow and expand as their mobile computing needs evolve.
"Thunderbolt 3 offers the most powerful connectivity solution available in today's laptops." says Jason Ziller, General Manager, Client Connectivity Division at Intel. "Having a docking solution that supports both Windows and Mac OS gives IT managers the opportunity to leverage the power of Thunderbolt 3 for workspaces across their organizations and have confidence that their investment has the bandwidth to support the growth of data and display needs in the years ahead."
Trusted Security that is Simple to Use
The Kensington SD5200T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station is fully integrated into Kensington's suite of security products and includes a security slot for a Kensington cable lock to protect the Docking Station from theft.
Sleek design for small workspaces
As the world leader in ergonomics, Kensington optimized the design of the Kensington SD5200T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station for flexibility and offers an option for zero-footprint mounting on the back of any VESA compatible external monitor.
The Kensington SD5200T Thunderbolt 3 Docking Station also reduces cord clutter on the desk, by providing headphone and microphone jacks, as well as 85W of laptop-charging power, eliminating the need to plug these cords directly into the laptop.
Expandable for large organizations
Larger organizations can connect up to five additional Thunderbolt-enabled devices by daisy chain to support even more power users. Since the second Thunderbolt 3 port on each Docking Station supports additional devices, adding a new Thunderbolt Docking Station is a simple task that doesn't require time-consuming cable tracing. Because the Docking Station offers simple plug & play installation of peripheral devices and additional Docking Stations, organizations have the flexibility to add new devices whenever they need them without worrying about downtime or loss of productivity.
