NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The future of work continues to receive buzz as technological advancements influence workplace culture. With the rise of hot desking practices and the common BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policy, comes the need for universality. At CES 2018, Humanscale (booth 43123 in Tech West) will showcase two integrated technology solutions that meet this demand with ease and style: M/Connect 2 and M/Power. These new docking stations provide streamlined connectivity at the workstation, adapt to new workplace trends and policies, and integrate ergonomic compatibility to further Humanscale’s mission to enhance health and well-being at work.
M/Connect is a split docking station that clamps to any surface. A USB hub above the desk provides access to data, power and audio. The dock itself is under the desk, integrated into the bottom of the clamp. All permanent peripheral and device cables are connected under the desk to eliminate desktop cable clutter.
M/Connect 2 is a USB-C version of the product with power delivery that is backwards compatible with USB 3.0. Both M/Connect and M/Connect 2 allow the integration of any Humanscale monitor arm.
M/Connect gained attention as the first docking station to integrate ergonomic comfort with technology to save space, eliminate desktop cable clutter and utilize a monitor arm to increase the user experience. The dock and hub offer a total of seven USB ports, including one upstream port and two with high-speed charging capabilities.
M/Connect 2 supports up to two 4K monitors or one 5K monitor, offering the very best in display resolution. Backwards compatible, it is an ideal solution for individuals and businesses in the process of upgrading toward newer technologies, as it accommodates both Type A and Type C devices.
Another breakthrough in integrated technology, M/Power supports the user who requires easily accessible USB charging at the workstation without imposing on internal security requirements that may prevent use of USB. It offers an easily accessed audio out port for users that want to use their personal earbuds for various audio requirements, such as Skype, Webex or intranet training.
M/Power is a charging hub integrated into the base of any Humanscale monitor arm that provides two USB Type-A high-speed charging ports (2.4A) and one USB-C charging port (3.0A) along with an audio out from the desktop computer. As only the audio cable connects to the computer and no data is connected, M/Power eliminates the potential for security risks.
M/Connect 2 and M/Power both address Humanscale’s mission to make the office a healthier, more comfortable and better performing place to work by improving connectivity, providing better access to required ports, saving desktop workspace and providing a clean and uncluttered work surface.
