Fremont, Calif. – April 15, 2013 – AOC, worldwide leader in display technology, unveils 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. The Q2963PM is equipped with dual 3 Watt enclosed speakers and WFHD 2560×1080 resolution to deliver a more immersive experience for your favorite movies and games. With multiple inputs like DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI, the display will also enable you to multiply 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. The AOC Q2963PM is now available for $499 at Amazon, Microcenter, New Egg, Tiger Direct, Canada Computers and other national retailers.
The panoramic Q2963PM display offers a 21:9 aspect ratio, which allows widescreen movies to be viewed without black bars on the top and bottom of the screen. The monitor’s IPS panel also provides crisp and clear viewing from almost any angle. The Q2963PM features a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 50,000,000:1 from viewing angles up to 178° both vertically and horizontally. Combined with 250 cd/m² brightness and a response time of 5 ms, the display is ideal for both cinema enthusiasts and office users.
Work Station Productivity
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 100 mm VESA compatible so that it can be mounted to the wall to save space and create a streamlined look.
The Q2963PM offers multiple connections so that Blu-ray players, computers and other signal sources can be connected simultaneously and displayed at a high resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. Additionally, an integrated MHL port allows Android users to connect compatible phones and tablets directly to the monitor to mirror content to the 29-inch UltaWide display while charging the mobile device at the same time.
The Q2963PM is also equipped with an HDCP-compatible HDMI port, DVI-D and D-Sub ports, and DisplayPort in and DisplayPort out connections. Thanks to Display Port 1.2a with HBR2 multi-stream transport technology, you can interconnect multiple monitors to create a single daisy chain configuration. Your DP 1.2a compliant PC device will be able to configure these monitors into a single huge screen, or independent screens depending on your application requirement.
The Q2963PM is ENERGY STAR qualified, meaning it uses about 30 percent less energy than standard units. The energy-efficient monitor consumes only 26 watts when in full operation and 0.5 Watt 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.
“AOC’s new 29-inch super-wide monitor lets you see more, do more, experience more and connect more, whether you are looking to add a panoramic display to your home for watching movies or a widescreen monitor to help increase productivity at the office,” said Chris Brown, AOC Marketing Manager. “The monitor’s expansive features and versatility coupled with its competitive pricing make it a must-have for every PC user.”
