IOGEAR Reinvents KVM Tech for the Modern Professional with New USB-C KVM Solution

IOGEAR Reinvents KVM Tech for the Modern Professional with New USB-C KVM Solution

At SIGGRAPH 2019, IOGEAR unveils 2-Port USB-C KVM Switch that enables the sharing of peripherals and a 4K display among Macs, Win10 PCs, iPads, Android devices via a USB-C connection to each


IOGEAR, a manufacturer of innovative solutions designed to maximize the capabilities of computing and AV technology investments, today announced the release of a new type of KVM switch designed for the devices people rely on most in the modern workplace. The all new Access ProTM 2-Port USB-C KVM Switch with Power Delivery (GUD3C04) allows users to share a 4K monitor, keyboard and mouse, as well as other USB-A accessories, among two USB-C™ or Thunderbolt™ 3 equipped Macs, PCs, iPads, Android tablets and smartphones, with a single-cable connection to each device.
IOGEAR will unveil the Access Pro™ 2-Port USB-C KVM Switch with Power Delivery at SIGGRAPH 2019 (Booth #612) and will showcase it among the company’s latest accessories designed to help animators, graphics designers, software developers and more maximize the true connectivity and performance capabilities of their computers.

Designed for All of Today’s Most Popular Computing Devices!

Gone are the days of running dedicated VGA, PS2, USB and audio cables from a bulky switch box to large stationary PCs. USB-C wraps these connections into one compact cable. USB-C has also quickly become the standard data and charging port on modern laptops, and the latest smartphones and tablets. The Access Pro 2-Port USB-C KVM Switch was designed to fuse the computing benefits of the devices today’s professionals carry on them daily, laptops, smartphones and tablets. Access Pro enables users to work off each device in a traditional desktop environment, complete with keyboard, mouse and a 4K display. With support for desktop modes like Samsung’s DeX™ mode, smartphones and tablets are now seamlessly integrated into workspaces to handle the tasks traditionally carried out by desktop and laptop computers. When extra horsepower is needed, users can switch over to their Mac or Windows PC at the tap of a button.

“KVM switches are an incredibly useful tool for independently operating multiple computers with a single desktop setup. However, since most jobs don’t require the use of two computers, KVMs have generally been considered a niche product,” said Joseph Zhang, Director of Product Management at IOGEAR. “With our Access Pro USB-C KVM Switch, we’re changing the game and making the KVM something that everybody can benefit from. Not only does the integration of USB-C drastically reduce the number of cables needed to just one per computing device, it has allowed us to expand compatibility to the latest smartphones and tablets, enabling users to maximize productivity by converting mobile devices into powerful desktop computers.”

Computing Leader Unveils First Dynabook Branded Products In The United States

New Professional-Grade Portégé® X30, Tecra® X40 and Portégé A30 Demonstrate Company’s Commitment to Mobility, Durability, Design and Performance


Dynabook Americas, Inc., Inc. (formerly Toshiba America Client Solutions, Inc.), today announced its first Dynabook-branded solutions with three laptops and a USB-C Dock. Designed for business and education, these three laptops include the Dynabook Portégé® X30, Dynabook Tecra® X40 and Dynabook Portégé A30. Today also represents the 30th Anniversary of the first Dynabook-branded laptop in Japan.
“We have evolved and these four products are the perfect example of the direction the organization plans to the take as Dynabook,” said Phillip Osako, vice president, marketing and engineering, Dynabook Americas, Inc. “Our new X Series and newly redesigned Portégé A30 push the mobile computing envelope as powerful, full-performance solutions with thinner and lighter form factors. The USB-C Dock demonstrates our understanding of the modern mobile professional’s connectivity and expansion needs.”

The new 13.3-inch Portégé X30 and new 14-inch Tecra X40 are part of the Dynabook premium laptop collection and include a variety of upgrades in processor, connectivity, instant on/off and cooling technologies. These new professional-grade laptops feature the latest 8th Generation Intel® Core™ VPro™ processors (codenamed Whiskey Lake) to the Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 to improve performance and connectivity speeds. With a 13.3-inch display, the ultraportable Portégé X30 measures 15.9 mm1 thin and weighs just 2.3 pounds2 making it our lightest X Series laptop to date. Offering the perfect balance of portability and increased screen real estate the Tecra X40 features an easily portable form factor that is just 16.9 mm1 and 2.7 pounds2.

The Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 laptops are available with Wi-Fi CERTIFIED 6™ ready. The new Wi-Fi standard based on 802.11ax3. This enhancement enables next-generation Wi-Fi connectivity provides higher capacity, coverage, and improves performance even in congested environments with many connected devices such as conference halls and other public venues.

Both X Series laptops feature Windows 10 Modern Standby, which delivers instant on/off capabilities. This feature allows optimized software and applications on the Portégé X30 and Tecra X40 to stay up-to-date by maintaining a low-power connection to an available network (Wi-Fi, mobile broadband/cellular or wired Ethernet) in order to run background processes while the laptop is in sleep mode. The ability to remain always on and connected to the Internet, ensures a user’s email, notifications and calendar are current. Not only does this feature boost system wake and resume times, it also makes the laptop more energy efficient.

To support the new performance features of the X Series laptops, Dynabook enhanced the fan technology for improved airflow and cooling by increasing the volume of air by 10% while also lowering rotation speeds. Called an S-Type fan, this cooling design improvement delivers a quieter running system especially when running processor-intensive tasks.
Both laptops incorporate Dynabook’s elegant and durable Onyx Blue magnesium alloy chassis designed to pass Military Durability Testing (MIL-STD-810G) standard. Meaning these laptops can easily handle the rigors of professional mobility. Dynabook also backed both X Series laptops with the company’s standard international three-year limited warranty. Starting price points for these two professional grade laptops will be $1,399.99 (MSRP) for the Portégé® X30 and $1,289.99 (MSRP) for the Tecra X40.

Dynabook Portégé A30
Ideal for small and medium businesses, Dynabook completely redesigned the 13.3-inch Portégé A30 to make it our thinnest and lightest A Series laptop to date. These design enhancements resulted in the Portégé A30 measuring 11 percent thinner (19.9 mm1) and nearly a half pound lighter at 2.65 pounds2 while still being a full-featured performance laptop. Featuring a new designed Polycarbonate Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) chassis, the Portégé A30 is designed to pass the Military Durability Testing (MIL-STD-810G) standard, further demonstrating the company’s commitment to durability.
Equipped with 8th Generation Intel® Quad Core processors and Windows 10 Pro, the Portégé A30 was designed to offer seamless integration into any corporate infrastructure. Dynabook fortified the A Series laptop with security elements including the company’s proprietary BIOS, TPM 2.0 and optional smart card reader. Two new biometrics features available on the Portégé A30 are an integrated IR camera for face authentication and a Synaptics’ TouchPad SecurePad™ with integrated fingerprint reader. To expand the overall functionality of the laptop in terms of data, display and power, Dynabook added a USB-C port to the laptop, which pairs perfectly with the new Dynabook USB-C Dock. Pricing for the Portégé A30 will start at $1,074.99 (MSRP).

Dynabook USB-C Dock
The Dynabook USB-C Dock is the newest addition to the company’s expansive portfolio of industry-leading docking solutions and features a streamlined design. The dock supports 10 ports and an SD Card Slot to expand overall productivity and connectivity to make it the ideal complement for any laptop with a USB-C port, including the Portégé A30. The Dynabook USB-C Dock can support up to three Full High Definition Monitors or one 4K UHD Monitor. The front of the dock has the following ports: an SD Card Slot, USB-C (USB Power & Data), two USB 3.1 and a Headphone/Mic. The back of the dock offers the following ports: two USB 3.1, HDMI, VGA, Display Port 1.4 and RJ45. For convenience, one of the USB 3.1 ports on the front of the dock delivers power to charge phones, tablets and other peripherals. The USB-C Dock will sell for $199.99 (MSRP).

These new Dynabook-branded products will be available at and from the company’s network of resellers. Dynabook plans to include the Portégé® X30, Tecra® X40 and Portégé A30 as part of the organization’s Build-to-Order (BTO) program giving users the ability to customize the following options including memory, storage, display and security capabilities. All Dynabook laptops are designed, engineered and rigorously tested in dedicated Dynabook facilities to deliver greater peace of mind and proven reliability.
