Targus® Keeps Businesses Connected with Its New USB 2.0 Docking Station with Video

The Simple “One Touch” Docking Station Connects to Your Office Peripherals via A Single USB Connection

LONDON, United Kingdom., – 8 February 2010 - Targus® Inc., maker of the world’s top-selling laptop computer cases and accessories, announced today the launch of its new USB 2.0 Docking Station with Video (ACP51EUZ), a USB based device with video output capabilities that allows you to easily connect to all of your peripherals including an external monitor, keyboard, mouse, printer, speakers or other USB devices often used in the office with its single “One Touch” high-speed interface. These peripherals can remain permanently connected to the dock, which eliminates the hassle of having to connect multiple devices every time you setup or disconnect your laptop, making it highly convenient for desktop users.

“Our newest docking station offers enhanced connectivity, which improves efficiency and the overall user experience with the ability to permanently connect all of their USB devices,” stated Carolyn Perrier, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Targus. “With video output capabilities combined with an ergonomic design, passive cooling and high-power charging abilities, this new Targus Docking Station is the ultimate in business connectivity.”

As the Docking station connection is universal, it’s immediately compatible with a variety of notebook brands. Whenever you have a meeting, simply disconnect your notebook from the dock. As soon as you’re back at your desk, just plug back in and you’re ready to work. There’s no need to reboot. It’s quick and easy – which makes it ideal for use in hot-desking environments.

To complete the workstation proposition the ACP51EUZ docking station is designed to seamlessly integrate inside the Targus Ergo D Pro Notebook stand providing a productive ergonomic working environment. Additionally this entire peripheral solution can be secured with the Targus Video port key lock solution creating an additional layer of security for your peace of mind.

The Targus USB 2.0 Docking Station with Video utilizes DisplayLink™ technology supporting monitor resolutions up to 2048 x 1152 and is Windows® 7, XP and Vista® compatible. It features four USB ports, including two high-power USB ports, for portable accessories such as Blackberries, iPhones/iPods, cameras and more. Additional ports include one Ethernet (10/100) for high speed network connections; one DVI video port and two 3.5 audio ports for speakers/headphones or a microphone.
