Six New Accessories Cover Most Commonly Used Ports to Add an External Screen

San Mateo, CA, September 22, 2015 – Kensington, a worldwide leader in delivering smart. safe. simple.™ desktop and mobile computing accessories, today announced the launch of six new Video Adapters. The family of complementary peripherals features four adapters designed for 4K Ultra HD and two for traditional HD. This new line of products follows the launch of the Kensington SD4000 Universal USB Docking Station, which enables business users to leverage 4K Monitors or Dual Monitors in business applications without the need to upgrade their laptop with a costly 4K graphics card.

The introduction of the Kensington 4K Video Adapters continues to build on the company’s commitment to creating a rich user experience through greater efficiency and improved productivity, particularly in the office environment.

Today’s typical business user views a document while multiple applications run in the background, such as email. Moving from one window to the next or pulling up a new app or web browser requires the user to lose focus, making it more time-consuming to complete tasks. Studies have shown that increasing screen size with Ultra HD resolution — which Kensington’s 4K USB Docking Station and 4K Video Adapters facilitate — helps eliminate these issues.

The new family of products includes the following 4K Video Adapters:

Kensington® VU4000 4K Video Adapter with USB 3.0 to HDMI connection (SKU K33988WW; SRP: $99.99) and Kensington® VU4000D 4K Video Adapter with USB 3.0 to DisplayPort connection (SKU K33989WW; SRP: $99.99)

The VU4000 4K Video Adapter with USB 3.0 to HDMI connection plugs into a USB 3.0 port on a laptop to connect to the HDMI video cable. The VU4000D 4K Video Adapter with USB 3.0 to DisplayPort connection plugs into a USB 3.0 port on a laptop to connect to the DisplayPort video cable. Both adapters allow users to view their content in Ultra HD on a monitor, projector, or TV and to either mirror their laptop screen or extend it for increased productivity. Key features include:

  • 4K resolution enabled in Ultra HD from a laptop to a 4K monitor, TV or projector without need for a 4K graphics card
  • Simple USB 3.0 to HDMI connection (SKU K33988WW) or USB 3.0 to DisplayPort Connection (SKU K33989WW)
  • Extension to a second monitor or mirror the screen on a laptop to improve productivity
  • Plug & Play installation
  • Compatibility with Windows® 8.1, 8, 7
  • Backward compatibility with 1080p displays

Kensington® VM4000 4K Video Adapter with Mini DisplayPort to HDMI connection (SKU K33985WW; SRP: $37.99) and Kensington® VP4000 4K Video Adapter with DisplayPort to HDMI connection (SKU K33984WW; SRP: $37.99)

With the increased recognition that productivity improves by working on a 4K monitor, the VM4000 and VP4000 4K Video Adapters give users an easy way to upgrade their laptop without the need for a 4K graphics card. The VM4000 simply plugs into either the Mini DisplayPort on a laptop and connects to the HDMI video cable of a monitor, projector, or TV to display content in Ultra HD; the VP4000 does the same through a standard DisplayPort. Key features include:

  • 4K resolution enabled in Ultra HD from a laptop to a 4K monitor, TV, or projector without need for a 4K graphics card
  • Simple Mini DisplayPort (VM4000) or DisplayPort (VP4000) to HDMI connection
  • Improved productivity by leveraging the clarity of 4K to put more content on a single screen
  • Plug & Play installation
  • Compatibility with Windows® 8.1, 8, 7 and Mac® OS X 10.9 and above
  • Backward compatibility with 1080p displays

The new family also includes the following Video Adapters for traditional HD:

Kensington VM1000 Video Adapter with Mini DisplayPort to VGA connection (SKU K33987WW; SRP: $26.99) and Kensington® VM2000 Video Adapter with Mini DisplayPort to HDMI connection (SKU K33986WW; SRP: $26.99) The VM1000 and VM2000 Video Adapters help display the same content that is on a laptop screen, on a monitor or a projector. The VM1000 adapter plugs into the Mini DisplayPort commonly found on laptops and then plugs into the video cable for the VGA port on a monitor or projector. The VM2000 provides a simple Mini DisplayPort to an HDMI connection. Both adapters support full HD resolution to give users a crystal clear picture. Key features include:

  • Simple Mini DisplayPort to VGA connection (VM1000) or Simple DisplayPort to HDMI connection (VM2000)
  • 1920 x 1200 resolution support
  • Plug & Play installation
  • Compatibility with Windows® 8.1, 8, 7 and Mac® OS X 10.9 and above
