I work with a lot of creatives in churches over the years who spend many hours working with dual computer monitors as part of their job, so when I find an innovative product that’s priced inexpensively, I like to share it with my church friends.
Today, I’m highlighting what I think is a huge innovation in something as simple as mounting two computer monitors: the Chief Manufacturing K1D220S.
Personally, I am a fan of both standing and sitting when spending hours in front of a computer, but making it easy use my dual monitors in both standing and sitting configurations has been a pain (both figuratively and literally). Plus, I sometimes am in serious writing mode and like to use the Portrait mode for one of my monitors, but that too is cumbersome, even with built-in rotating stands.
The K1D220S, highlighted recently at the 2014 Infocomm expo, is crazy cool and perfectly practical, a difficult combination to pull of. Some serious engineering went into this, and the ease of use is testament to tremendous forethought and great design.
Here’s what I think my church friends will appreciate:
- Almost zero effort, fingertip-touch height, rotation, and tilt adjustments.
- Stand-up or sit down work modes.
- Dual or independent Landscape and Portrait rotation.
- Built-in hidden cable management.
- Super easy installation and quick-release levers.
Check out the pictures and video below that demonstrate this particular model. They also offer wall-mount and pole-mount options (see those here).
I’ve long been a fan of Chief, and this latest innovation continues to impress me. Plus, at less than $300, this is a tremendous value and significant productivity-enhancer for church staff who spend countless hours at a computer. Well done, Chief. This is now officially on my Amazon Wish List!
