Unsurpassed Compatibility Drives Increase in User Productivity and Satisfaction

San Mateo, CA, June 10, 2015 - Kensington, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple.™ desktop and mobile computing accessories, today announced the launch of its SD4000 Universal USB Docking Station, enabling business users to leverage 4K (3840 x 2160) Ultra High Definition (UHD) monitors with their current laptop or tablet. Previously reserved for fields such as digital television and digital cinematography, the new Kensington SD4000 Universal Docking Station is one of the first USB docking stations on the market that supports 4K output via HDMI or DisplayPort, providing general purpose business users unsurpassed compatibility. If the user is not ready to migrate to a 4K display yet, the new SD4000 also supports dual 2K monitor set-up, which when combined with its ability to also support larger sized monitors, enables users to dramatically increase productivity. For more about user productivity, see the announcement issued separately today revealing the findings of a survey recently conducted by Kensington.

Today's typical business user views a document, while multiple applications such as email run in the background. To move from one window to the next, or to pull up a completely new app or web browser, requires the user to defocus from the work at-hand. Once the user has moved to the new window/task, oftentimes they forget about the original work altogether, at least for a time. This is commonplace – we have all experienced it. Add to that, the devices on which we work are getting smaller and thinner, with the available screen size shrinking in-tandem – necessitating extensive scrolling up-and-down, back-and-forth across the document. This makes it more challenging and time consuming to complete tasks. It therefore stands to reason that increasing screen size with ultra-high resolution would eliminate these issues. And, numerous research studies have in fact demonstrated this to be true.*

"The innovative Kensington SD4000 Universal USB Docking Station enables its users to get more and clearer screen space to work with, which not only saves time and improves accuracy, but also increases user satisfaction," said Louie Yao, Global Product Manager, Kensington. "User satisfaction is a critical measurement in a business environment, as studies have shown that it is also directly related to higher productivity. For our strategic channel partners, the SD4000 provides them with an opportunity to ride the wave and significantly take advantage of the recent 71 percent decrease in 4K monitor pricing, and the corresponding growth in demand, to an expected 32 million units sold by 2020."
