Targus Named CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree for World’s First USB-C™ Universal Quad Video HD Docking Station

CES Unveiled, NY – November 8, 2018 – Targus, the industry leader that introduced the first universal dual-video docking station, announced today that its USB-C™ Universal Quad Video HD Docking Station (DOCK520USZ) has been selected as a CES 2019 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Computer Peripherals category. Revealed today at CES Unveiled in NY, this award-winning dock will be displayed at the CES Innovation Awards Showcase during CES 2019 in Las Vegas. Targus will also be showcasing its honoured Universal Quad Video HD Docking Station along with other next generation docking solutions and accessories throughout the show starting with CES Unveiled on Sunday, January 6 and continuing at its booth (LVCC, South Hall, Booth #31147).

The DOCK520USZ gives call centres, investment firms, design agencies and IT departments the ability to connect a laptop to up to four monitors via (4) HDMI video out ports. Outfitted with Dual DisplayLink® DL-3950 chip technology, the dock supports four HD (1920 x 1080 p60) displays or two 2K (2560 x 1440 p50) displays. The docking station includes additional ports to connect essential USB 3.0 peripherals and to an Ethernet network. It has a compact and low-profile, consuming half the desk space of typical docks.
