ASUS today announced the Designo Series MX299Q Ultrawide 21:9 Cinematic Monitor, a 29-inch widescreen display with a 21:9 aspect ratio and 2560 x 1080 resolution.
The MX299Q features the latest AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) display with 178-degree wide viewing angles, and ASUS SonicMaster audio, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower as well as built-in stereo speakers.
With a display area equivalent to that of two 17-inch (5:4 aspect ratio) monitors placed alongside each other, the ASUS Designo Series MX299Q Ultrawide 21:9 Cinematic Monitor has a display area 33% wider than a similar Full HD monitor.
The monitor also features an 80,000,000:1 ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio and a 300cd/mē brightness rating. ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology also ensures vivid colors in every situation, with its six modes (Standard/ sRGB/ Scenery/ Theater/ Game/ Night view) easily activated using a designated hotkey.
Video inputs include DisplayPort, Dual-link DVI and HDMI/MHL, with MHL (Mobile High-Definition Link) providing a single-cable video and power connection for compatible smartphones and tablets.
The MX299Q features a 0.8mm bezel that gives the illusion of a frameless panel design and an ultra-slim profile measuring just 16.4mm at its thinnest.
