Asus unveils frameless displays
Taipei, November 13, 2012
Taiwan-based Asus, a global leader in the new digital era, has launched 27- and 23-inch displays featuring a frameless design.
The Asus Designo MX Series MX279H and MX239H displays come with a 178-degreee wide-view angle Advanced-High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS) panel that provides stunning visuals backed by Bang & Olufsen ICE power-derived dual stereo speakers.
The Asus Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles — with the MX239H measuring just 14.5mm at its thinnest point; while the larger MX279H comes in at 17.5mm – thereby minimizing the desk space required.
In addition, the MX Series’ edge-to-edge, frameless design has a bezel thickness of only 0.8mm. This design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base to rest on.
The Designo MX Series displays feature an LED-backlit AH-IPS panel with a 178-degree wide-view angle that minimizes color shift on horizontal or vertical planes to ensure quality visuals from almost any viewing position.
With the Asus Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250 cd per sq m of brightness, the MX279H delivers life-like visuals by adjusting backlight luminance to achieve the darkest black and the brightest white shades.
These Designo MX Series displays feature Asus SonicMaster technology – which was co-developed by the Asus Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower. This Asus-exclusive audio technology combines advanced hardware and software to refine every acoustic detail in pristine quality to deliver crystal clear, true-to-life surround sound — reproducing richer and more distinct vocals at a wider frequency range and louder volumes.
The Designo MX’s embedded ICEpower MobileSound 3 chip delivers incredible audio fidelity to ensure quality audio. Asus SonicMaster technology, together with the built-in dual 3W stereo speakers, gives these displays the capacity to deliver an immersive home theater audio experience.
The Designo MX Series supports Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolutions and has dual HDMI and D-sub (VGA) input ports to ensure compatibility with a variety of multimedia devices including Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, and digital cameras. – TradeArabia News Service
