AOC has unveiled the Q2963PM, a 29-inch 21:9 super wide screen HD monitor that combines IPS LED technology with convenient connectivity to provide a cinematic display experience.
Equipped with dual 3W enclosed speakers and WFHD 2560 x 1080 resolution, the display comes with multiple inputs like DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI, and allows you to multiple your screen with Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture capabilities. This means you can watch a movie through a connected Blu-ray player on one half of the screen and browse the Internet through your connected laptop on the other half, and more. MHL technology will also allow you to mirror your smartphone on the monitor’s 29-inch wide screen.
Featuring a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 50,000,000:1 from viewing angles up to 178-degrees both vertically and horizontally, the monitor offers 250-nit brightness and a response time of 5ms.
AOC’s Screen+ software allows the Q2963PM’s vast screen to be split into individual work areas, making it easy to multitask and view multiple documents simultaneously. The extra desktop real estate is perfect for comparing documents side by side or using multiple program windows. In the office, the monitor’s built-in speakers will also help to reduce cable clutter, as no external audio set-up is required. The display is also 100mm VESA compatible so that it can be mounted to the wall to save space and create a streamlined look.
The Q2963PM is ENERGY STAR qualified, meaning it uses about 30% less energy than standard units. The energy-efficient monitor consumes only 26W when in full operation and 0.5W in standby mode. It also comes with Eco Mode and e-Saver software to help save energy, and is free of harmful arsenic, mercury and BFR/PVC laminates that can be found in other monitors.
The AOC Q2963PM is now available for US$499 at Amazon, Microcenter, New Egg, Tiger Direct, Canada Computers and other retailers.
