Targus Brings First-To-Market Quad 4K Docking Station to Display Industry with Cost-Effective, Rapid-Deployment Signage Solution
Jun 12, 2019 – Targus, the leader in universal docking solutions, today brings its revolutionary quad 4K docking station to the display industry. Debuting for the first time at InfoComm, Targus showcases its new DOCK570 that seamlessly delivers 4K to four extended displays.
Using dual DisplayLink® DL-6910 chip technology, the DOCK570 supports up to four DisplayPort (3840 x 2160 p60) or HDMI (3840 x 2160 p50) displays. This technology means deployment is simple – connect the dock to a host (e.g. laptop), connect the dock to the displays and extend the host screen via monitor settings. No additional software is required so users can have crisp, ultra high-definition displays within minutes of set up. The DOCK570 touts universal compatibility, working with various platforms and operating systems including Mac, PCs, Android, Linux Ubuntu, Thunderbolt 3™ and other USB-C hosts.
The dock also comes equipped with a USB-C to USB-A adapter to support USB-A hosts, as well as Targus’ exclusive charging solution that uses legacy charging tips to power a variety of major laptops, making this dock truly universal.
“The simplicity of the Targus DOCK570 means that teams can get up and running with their displays in a matter of minutes – and is less than one-fourth the cost of comparable digital signage solutions,” said Andrew Corkill, VP, Global Marketing, Targus. “Being able to just plug-and-play to run four 4K displays is revolutionary and will mean that more companies can manage their display needs – from tradeshows to showrooms, office lobbies to advertising screens – with less time, cost, and lost productivity.”
Also on display at InfoComm will be Targus’ full-range of docking stations including the award-winning DOCK520 which was a CES Innovation Awards honoree at CES 2019; and the Tablet Cradle Workstation, a modular tablet case and tray stand that transforms a DeX-enabled Samsung Galaxy Tab S4 into a multi-use device, turning a tablet into a full desktop experience.
