Acer today debuted its new Acer 3D Series Displays in North America.
The new 27-inch (HN274H) and 23.6-inch (HS244HQ) widescreen 3D LCDs provide full HD 3D visuals via HDMI or DVI-DL to PCs, Blu-ray Disc Players, game consoles, cameras and 3D TV programming via a set-top box. Supporting the HDMI 3D solution, the displays deliver 3D broadcasting, Blu-ray movies, gaming and photography.
The Acer HN274H is the first 27-inch LED monitor to support both HDMI 3D and NVIDIA 3D Vision solutions. It delivers full HD 3D imagery via HDMI when connected to CE devices. Its DVI-DL connection provides twice the bandwidth of DVI for supporting very high resolution images when attached to a PC.
This display offers an ultra-high 100 million: 1 contrast ratio. This breakthrough is made possible by Acer Adaptive Contrast Management, which optimizes contrast by analyzing every scene, adjusting images frame by frame, and enhancing detail and gradation even in very bright or dim scenes.
Providing a complete 3D package, the monitors include NVIDIA 3D glasses with active 3D shutter technology. The monitor itself has a built-in IR emitter, so no external IR emitter is needed to connect to a PC. With a set-top box, users can view the latest in satellite 3D TV programming or host a 3D movie party with additional 3D glasses and simple connection to a Blu-Ray Disc player.
A large display with dimensions of 25.5-inches (W) x 18.4-inches (H) x 7.6-inches (D), it?s a great size for enjoying today?s fastest high-def 3D games and the depth that stereoscopic imaging lends to digital photographs. It offers a variety of input options including 1xVGA, 1xDVI and 3xHDMI with HDCP support and provides cables for all three.
Measuring 22.6-inches (W) x 16.6-inches (H) x 6.8 ?inches (D), the HS244HQ is a practical size for more space constrained areas. It supports HDMI 3D and boasts a 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a 2ms response time .
This 23.6-inch display has a built-in IR emitter and comes with Acer 3D glasses featuring active shutter 3D technology. It has both 1xVGA and 2xHDMI with HDCP support for input. Cables for both options are included.
Both displays support full HD resolution with a refresh rate of up to 120Hz, 2 ms response time and have a 16:9 aspect ratio. Adding more style are sleek, touch-sensitive controls and a tear dropped power key. An eColor Management button allows users to tailor the performance, such as brightness, saturation and contrast. In terms of mounting options, the displays come with an adjustable stand and are VESA-compliant (100 x 100mm) for mounting to a wall. They provide viewing angles of 170 degrees left/right and 160 degrees up/down and include two 2W speakers.
The Acer 27-inch (HN274H) and 23.6-inch (HS244HQ) Widescreen 3D LCDs are available in the U.S. at retailers with MSRPs of $689 and $449, respectively. Both come with a three-year parts and labor limited warranty.
