Connectivity hub: Philips Monitor Stand and Universal Dock in One
Caompatible with VESA-compliant 19-inch to 28-inch monitors
Integrated Ethernet for Internet connection
USB 3.0 hub gives notebooks instant one-cable access to office peripherals
Amsterdam, 30 July, 2015 – MMD, the leading technology company and brand license partner for Philips Monitors, announces all-in-one simplicity for desks everywhere. With the brand new Philips USB Docking Stand, users simply attach their notebook via USB cable, and lock their preferred VESA-compliant display into place. The result: easy access to all the office peripherals and the Internet via a single, superfast USB 3.0 connection. Completed by a Philips monitor, the stand combines these productivity and convenience gains with an excellent viewing experience.
More connections, less clutter
The brand-new Philips SB4B1928UB USB Docking Stand consists of a stylish, ergonomic stand that users can pair with a new Philips display of their choice, or any display they already have, provided it is VESA-compliant (100 x 100 hole pattern). With support for screens from 19 to 28 inches (48 to 71 cm), the new docking stand gives users greater flexibility for choosing (and swapping) displays.
The stand is a good fit for the latest ultra-thin notebooks preferred by mobile business professionals who work at multiple locations. Offsetting the major drawback of the lighter thinner notebooks – their limited choice of connectors – the new docking stand provides an integrated USB 3.0 hub and Ethernet. “Users can plug in at the office and get straight down to work,” says Thomas Schade, Vice President EMEA at MMD. “And they don’t have to deal with cable clutter on their desk, either. Thanks to the universality of USB, the new stand works with any notebook with a USB port. It enables people to connect right away, with instant one-cable access to office peripherals, the Internet and power supply.”
Expanding the viewing experience
The stand gives users the freedom to select the display size, resolution and technology best suited to their applications – up to the dazzling clarity of fine 4K UHD resolution with its 3840 x 2160 pixels. And if one display isn’t enough, users can plug up to six monitors into the docking stand via HDMI, DisplayPort and USB – all still with just one USB cable between the docking stand and notebook. This is an easy way to create a clutter-free multi-monitor workspace for increased productivity.
Desk worker wellbeing in focus
Despite its all-in-one simplicity, there is nothing “one-size-fits-all” about the design of the new Philips Docking Stand. With the Philips SmartErgoBase design, the stand can be raised or lowered, tilted, swiveled and rotated to put the display in exactly the right position for the user. The low bezel-to-table height ensures maximum reading comfort, particularly for wearers of bifocals, trifocals or progressive lens glasses. And even though the stand, with its single USB 3.0 cable hookup, eliminates most of the cable tangle from desks, it also features extra cable management abilities to keep the workspace neat and professional.
The new Philips SB4B1928UB USB Docking Stand is available now for a price of £ 128.
