Docking Stations - Evolving the Way We Use Tech at Home

Whether they’re now full time remote or back in the office, professionals across nearly every industry are searching for new ways to add productivity to their work environments. This next wave of tech evolution is coming through the introduction of versatility through one key component: docking stations.

Ditching Dongles for Adaptability

A top priority for the mobile worker is flexibility with their tech, regardless of whether work is getting done in a local coffee house or behind a desk at home. Instead of juggling a series of dongles and adapters, docking stations offer additional ports, external display connections, audio/visual jacks, and more. With a plug-and-play docking station, a simple laptop screen becomes a full workstation.

Great on the Go

On top of being an excellent addition to the home office, many docking stations are portable and offer valuable on-the-go connections and data transfer with features like card readers and ethernet ports. With coworking spaces and hot desking becoming more popular, docking stations provide the ability to get full desktop functionality with a temporary set-up.

A Dock for Every Situation

Sometimes a quick HDMI connection to a hotel monitor and a USB 3.0 port are all that’s necessary for a presentation or travelling workday. Other times, you might need 3 USB Type-A connections for mouse and keyboard, external display ports, data transfer and charging. For this reason, docking station manufacturers like VisionTek offer docks with different configurations, making it easy to find a dock that fits with your existing work desk tech and office set-up. 

For example, more compact and portable docks like the VT400 provide dual monitor display with a compact, travel-ready form factor. Some others, like the VT7000 offer Triple 4K displays and connection to up to 8 accessories and peripherals with 100W power delivery.

Answering Demand

When it comes to the call to merge adaptability and power in laptop environments, docking stations offer compatibility and confidence to casual laptop users and professionals alike. Check out VisionTek’s docking station solutions and transform your laptop set-up with a single piece of tech.
