Kensington taps DisplayLink OS X network display technology for its sd200v Notebook Docking Station with Video and Dual Monitor Adapter, becoming the first vendor to display USB 2.0 multi-monitor products for Intel-based Macs.
The Kensington sd200v Notebook Docking Station with Video allows a user to connect speakers, a VGA display and up to five USB peripherals to their Mac with a single USB 2.0 connection. DisplayLink’s network display technology is used in the docking station to provide high performance graphics over USB. The docking station’s DualView feature provides an easy access front-panel button to instantly enable multi-monitor computing by switching the external display between mirror and extended desktop modes.
As an alternative to the sd200v Notebook Docking Station with Video, Mac users can also utilize the recently announced Kensington Dual Monitor Adapter to add up to four additional displays to their computer over a single USB 2.0 connection for a powerful desktop “command center” with immersive access to digital multimedia content at work or home. The adapter is unique in that it has both VGA and DVI connectors and can be used interchangeably with either type of display. Kensington Dual Monitor Adapters are ideal for individual travellers who need to connect to a wide range of displays and for businesses that want to offer their employees complete connectivity flexibility.
