Acer’s New Monitors Double as Smart TVs

Computer electronics manufacturer Acer has recently unveiled a series of new smart monitors with Google TV that blur the lines between monitor and smart TV, as well as a new line of smart laser projectors.

The announcements come as the company releases new consumer and business products, including laptops, PCs, gaming monitors and more. However, it’s the Acer DA1 and Nitro GA1 series monitors that caught our attention. The 31.5-inch DA1 and 27-inch Nitro GA1 monitors can function as a workstation monitor, a gaming monitor and an entertainment hub, making them more than capable of performing in multipurpose spaces, home offices, and dedicated gaming rooms.

The monitors feature wireless projection, simultaneous viewing from different sources. The DA271K and DA321QK LED monitors come with 4K UHD resolution, while the Nitro GA271U P and Nitro GA321QU P are equipped with WQHD resolution and up to 180 Hz refresh rate for gaming.

The monitors feature HDR10 and 250 nits brightness, making images and colors more immersive and realistic. Monitors work with AMD FreeSync and are NVIDIA G-SYNC Compatible, helping minimize screen tearing when playing or watching videos.

All four monitors include Google TV, enabling users to stream content from popular streaming services on one screen (as well as control smart devices through the platform with an approaching update by Google). Users can also cast movies, shows, photos and more from their phones or tablets directly to the monitors with Google Cast. Wireless projection and screen mirroring are also available.

The Future of Digital Lighting & Control

As a custom integrator, lighting is in demand. Effective communication, education and showcasing the value proposition of LED light fixtures in conjunction with integrative control systems are the keys to overcoming challenges and closing sales in this specialized market.

Bluetooth connectivity helps eliminate cable clutter, allowing user to pair external speakers and other peripherals. The Wi-Fi-connected monitors can integrate with the ecosystem of smart devices on the same network.

The monitors also feature a Multiview function that splits the screens into various sections, allowing users to interact with content from various sources and control these straight from the displays.

External webcams can be attached for video calling and streaming, and streamers can choose their preferred platform to upload videos directly through the monitors.

The monitors come with a tabletop stand and can be wall mounted. They will be available in North America in the fourth quarter.

Acer also recently announced a new line of Vero laser projectors, which are billed as eco-friendly projectors designed for home entertainment while minimizing environmental impact.

The projectors will be available in EMEA this summer, and no date for U.S. availability was given.

The two new models are equipped with 4K UHD resolution and HDR10 compatibility and 4000 ANSI lumens from its laser/LED hybrid light source.

The Acer Vero HL6810ATV comes with an Acer-exclusive Android TV embedded dongle design, giving users access to smart home features at their fingertips.

According to Acer, the new laser projectors are designed to consume less power without sacrificing performance and offer long-lasting brightness consistency with up to a 30,000-hour lifespan.

Their hybrid light source is also 100% mercury-free and the devices incorporate post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastic in their chassis and recycled paper for packaging, the company says.
