IOGEAR BETS ON IMAGE QUALITY WITH 4K PRODUCTS [01-05-2015]


New Docking Station, Switch and Video Card Enhance Work and Play with High Resolution Support

LAS VEGAS – Jan. 5, 2015 – The quality of 4K comes to life for designers, engineers and enthusiasts with new products IOGEAR previewed today at the annual International CES (Central Hall, Booth #15214). The USB 3.0 Universal Dock with 4K Monitor Support, the 4-Port 4K2K Slim HDMI Switch with Remote and the USB 3.0 to DisplayPort 4K2K External Video Card deliver the highest quality resolution through smart technology solutions.

"As the marketplace embraces 4K content and technology in a bigger way, IOGEAR has responded with products that seamlessly integrate this new standard into your workspace and living room," said Jack Wang, IOGEAR CEO. "By looking at how our customers use and enjoy high-resolution content, we've brought a collection of new products to CES that showcase how IOGEAR innovates to support professional lifestyles and custom applications."

IOGEAR Docking Station Harnesses 4K for a Custom Workspace

The sharpest details of 4K content are accessible on a second screen when laptop or tablet users plug into the USB 3.0 Universal Dock with 4K Monitor Support (GUD342; MSRP: $199.95). It's perfect for graphic designers, engineers or others who love the mobility of a laptop or tablet, but need up-close precision on a larger display. The docking station enhances a laptop, Ultrabook™ or even Microsoft Surface® Pro tablet experience with simple one-cord connectivity.

The new 4K compatibility builds on the existing connectivity options of IOGEAR's popular docking station to turn a laptop or tablet into a complete workstation. The dock can support either one additional 4K screen using DisplayPort or HDMI, or two extra screens are supported in Full HD using the additional DVI port.

It's simple to add items for a productive workspace, including a mouse, external hard drive or printer. Connections include a gigabit Ethernet port, six USB 3.0 ports (two front-mounted with 1.5A output and four rear-mounted), and audio input/output jacks for headsets or speakers. These options solve a common problem cited by consumers -- newer devices with few USB ports or no Ethernet connector. When the laptop is detached for travel or off-site work, the docking station keeps the custom workspace wired and waiting for the laptop's return.

The USB 3.0 Universal Dock with 4K Monitor Support will be available online at www.iogear.com and through major distribution channels this spring.

IOGEAR Streamlines 4K HDTV Experience

When many devices compete for TV connectivity, the new IOGEAR 4-Port 4Kx2K HDMI Switch with Remote (GHDSW4K4; MSRP: $29.95) makes switching among them a breeze. Now supporting resolutions up to 4Kx2K at 30 frames per second and full 3D video, the switch works with all HDMI-enabled HDTVs or displays. No power adapter is required. Simply connect a powered HDMI device to any input and begin to use.

Users can view and switch between devices using the front-panel buttons or infrared remote included with each device. The result is a more organized and functional entertainment arrangement for the home or office. The switch will be available online at www.iogear.com and through major distribution channels later this month.

IOGEAR 4K Switch with RS-232 Increases HDMI Connections

The new IOGEAR 4Kx2K 4-Port HDMI Switch with RS-232 Support (GHSW8241; MSRP: $99.95) allows users to connect up to four HDMI source devices to one HDMI display and supports Ultra HD 4Kx2K, the latest digital format for high-definition displays at a distance of up to 50 ft. For easy access and convenience, this switch has one HDMI port on the front panel that can be used to connect portable devices, such as laptops, tablets or digital cameras, while the other three HDMI ports on the back provide permanent connections for Blu-ray players, set-top boxes, video game consoles and more.

Switching between source devices can be done via the front panel pushbuttons, RS-232 bi-directional control or IR remote control, with front panel LED indicators for each source device. The built-in bi-directional RS-232 serial port allows users to control the switch through a high-end controller, PC, home automation or home theater software system. The switch will be available online at www.iogear.com and through major distribution channels later this month.

IOGEAR External Video Cards Make 4K Content a Snap

Instantly add a 4K DisplayPort or HDMI monitor to a PC laptop or computer with the USB 3.0 to DisplayPort 4K2K External Video Card (GUC34DP; MSRP: $99.95) and USB 3.0 to HDMI 4K2K External Video Card (GUC34HD; MSRP $119.95). These tools support 4K video streaming from sites like YouTube or enable desktop display mirroring and extension mode for maximum entertainment or productivity.

Great for supporting those that work on digital signage, graphics or video production, the device supports standard and widescreen aspect ratios. No power supply is required to take advantage of its benefits and multi-tasking options.

These USB 4K2K External Video Cards are the most cost-effective options on the market and will be available online at www.iogear.com and through major distribution channels in the first quarter of this year.
