Acer to Bring Amazon Alexa to PCs


Acer announced at CES that Amazon Alexa will be coming to select1 Aspire, Spin, Switch and Swift notebooks, as well as Aspire all-in-one PCs starting from Q1 2018.

Amazon Alexa will initially be available in the US via an update through Acer Care Center, while wider support is expected to be rolled out mid-2018.

Enabled by Intel Smart Sound Technology, an integrated audio DSP (Digital Signal Processor) built to handle audio, voice, and speech interactions, many of Acer's latest notebooks and desktops will support Amazon Alexa and respond to voice commands while offering high fidelity audio without impacting system performance.

Notebooks such as the Switch 7 Black Edition and Spin 5 with Acer Purified.Voice and four digital microphones support far-field voice recognition from up to nine feet (2.74 m) away, while others with dual microphones will be able to activate Alexa within three feet (0.91 m). All supported convertible and 2-in-1 notebooks come with front-facing speakers.

New Acer V6820M/i 4K UHD Projector

In addition to the Acer Air Monitor, which already works with Alexa, Acer's new V6820M and V6820i 4K UHD projectors will be among the support Amazon Alexa. Now part of the smart home, consumers will be able to control the projector after enabling the Acer Projector Smart Home skill by asking Alexa on a device like the Echo or compatible Acer PC, "Alexa, turn on the projector," "Alexa, select HDMI as the projector source," or "Alexa, change projector display mode to bright."

The Acer V6820M/i wireless projector support a 120-inch 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution display. It is compatible with HDR and Rec. 2020 signals, supports the Rec. 709 standard, and HDMI 3D2 for 3D home theater experiences. The projector ensures visuals are ultra-smooth even in fast-moving scenes with the Acer AcuMotion frame interpolation system, which calculates and generates intermediate frames, inserting them into existing ones for seamless motion. The V6820M/i can operate at a low noise level of 19dBA (silent mode3).
