LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The ideal office environment is within reach with a pair of new products IOGEAR revealed today at the annual International CES (Central Hall, Booth #11604). The KeyShair and USB 3.0 Universal Docking Station each provide unique connectivity and flexibility for productive and seamless user experiences across multiple platforms.
"Multiple devices constantly command professionals' attention every day, but IOGEAR has provided tools to take back control over your productivity," said Jack Wang, IOGEAR CEO. "Our technology here at CES adds more functionality to adapt with the preferences of our customers and maximize their devices' efficiency."
KeyShair Unlocks Productivity on Tablet and Mobile Screens
It's smooth sailing among mobile and desktop screens with the new KeyShair (GKMB02; MSRP: $49.95), which allows seamless switching between desktop and Bluetooth®-enabled devices using a keyboard. Multitaskers gain greater precision and speed when KeyShair wirelessly links them to a full-sized desktop keyboard or laptop for faster texting or emailing on up to four mobile devices. Further quicken the pace with the ability to cut and paste from PC or Mac to mobile devices and create shortcut programing for iOS and Android functions.
The KeyShair supports both PC and Mac desktop or laptop keyboards and is compatible with the iPad®, iPhone®, Galaxy Tab™ and other mobile devices. Easily switch among the devices with a simple hotkey, and add or remove new devices on the fly with responsive USB ports. Using one mouse and keyboard to maneuver through documents and mobile tools will streamline tasks compared to handling each device individually to type. Some mobile operating systems do not support mouse function, only keyboards. The KeyShair will be available online at www.iogear.com and through major distribution channels this spring.
IOGEAR Docking Station Transforms Laptop into Custom Workspace
The new IOGEAR USB 3.0 Universal Docking Station (GUD300; MSRP: $149.95) enhances a laptop, Ultrabook™ or even Microsoft Surface® Pro tablet experience with simple one-cord connectivity for add-on tools used most, including extra monitor screens, a keyboard/mouse and headset/audio combinations. When the laptop is detached for travel or off-site work, the docking station keeps the custom workspace wired and waiting for its return.
Many of the popular new laptops have a reduced number of USB slots and ports to save space. When any PC or Mac laptop is connected to the USB 3.0 Universal Docking Station, a variety of high-quality content can flow through six USB ports (two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0). It also adds support for gigabit Ethernet, two video output ports and 5.1 surround sound audio. An HDMI to DVI converter and a DVI to VGA converter are both included, ensuring simple compatibility with any screen, projector or monitor. Any attached cords remain neatly attached to the docking station, keeping the laptop clutter-free.
The connectivity in the docking station is driven by DisplayLinkTM, and its adaptive compression technology automatically provides the best possible USB graphics experience. The KeyShair will be available online at www.iogear.com and through major distribution channels this spring.
