A more harmonious home for the New Year

This new year, one of the most common things people would want to do is make a promise, a resolution that they would have to do to make better versions of their lives and of themselves. Some make a list of things they would want to do and several goals they would want to achieve, while others are taking it one resolution at a time, fulfilling the most feasible goals before moving up to those bigger ones.

Acer Introduces World’s First 21:9 Curved Monitor

Acer Introduces Industry’s First 21:9 Curved Monitor with Eye-Tracking and New Line of Enhanced Predator Gaming Monitors.

Acer, a global leader and innovator in gaming displays, has announced the availability of the CES 2017 Innovations Award-winning 30-inch Predator Z301CT, the world’s first 21:9 monitor with Tobii eye-tracking functionality in Las Vegas dated January 3, 2017. The company also unveiled two Predator XB2 Series models featuring 24.5- and 27-inch flat screens with a blazing fast 240Hz refresh rate. All three new models feature aggressive aesthetics via a sleek black frame with sharp angles and bold red accents and NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ technology for ultra-smooth gameplay.

Acer Predator Z301CT – First Curved Monitor with Eye-Tracking

The 30-inch Acer Predator Z301CT is the pinnacle of gaming immersion, as evidenced by its win as the CES 2017 “Best of Innovations” award in the computer peripherals category. The monitor’s integrated Tobii eye-tracking technology adds to a gamer’s arsenal of control tools, helping them to intuitively aim, shoot and explore. Intended to complement, rather than replace, traditional PC gaming inputs, Tobii eye tracking uses the gamer’s eye movement to create a new input modality. Pairing eye tracking with mouse and keyboard or gamepad controls give gamers a richer, more immersive experience as they are able to mimic actions that occur in real life, such as looking for cover or aiming at a target. Camera angles also automatically rotate as the gamer’s eye focuses on the edge of the screen, while characters and game environments react as the gamer looks around. Tobii eye tracking functionality can be found in over 45 titles like Elite Dangerous, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and WATCH_DOGS 2™. The games’ sounds and graphics will dynamically adapt depending on where the gamers look. In addition, the ultra-wide Full HD (2560 X 1080) and 1800R curved screen makes gaming more attractive and powerful.

Other key features include a rapid 200Hz refresh rate and a fast 4ms response time. Wide 178 degree viewing angles and an extreme-narrow frame provide maximum viewing area. For optimum comfort, the display can tilt and swivel -5° to 25° and reach 4.7 inches (120mm) up and down for providing the most comfortable viewing position. Two 3W speakers with DTS™ Sound deliver quality audio for deepening the immersive experience.

New Predator XB2 Series – Ultrafast 240Hz Refresh Rate   

The Predator XB2 Series was built from the ground up for fast-paced, tournament-grade intensity. Boasting NVIDIA® ULMB™ technology[1], a fast 1ms response time and a rapid 240Hz refresh rate, the 24.5-inch Predator XB252Q and 27-inch Predator XB272 deliver an incredibly realistic in-game experience with fast-moving action, sharp edges and dramatic transitions rendered smoothly without smearing or ghosting.

Superb picture quality is made possible with a Full HD 1080p resolution and a sharp 1,000:1 contrast ratio. The ZeroFrame design is ideal for multi-monitor setups and an ergonomically-designed stand lets gamers find the perfect viewing position with -5 to 20 degrees tilt, +45 degree swivel, 90 degrees clockwise pivot and height adjustment up to 4.5 inches (115 mm). The monitors can be quickly released from the stand for VESA wall-mounting for maximizing desk space and a cable clip keeps the desk clutter-free. They also come with two 2W speakers.
