AOC has announced the launch of a new and very interesting computer display. The display is the AOC Q2963PM and promises to bring dual monitor productivity to a single screen. The display is 29-inches wide and has an aspect ratio 21:9.
The screen has integrated dual three-watt enclosed speakers. The native resolution for the incredibly wide display is 2560 x 1080. AOC equips the device with multiple inputs including DVI, HDMI, D-Sub, and DisplayPort.
MHL technology is also integrated making it easy to mirror content from your smartphone on to the 29-inch-wide monitor. An aspect ratio of 21:9 may seem very strange, but it's designed to allow the playback of widescreen movies without black bars in the top or bottom of the screen. The LCD panel used offers a dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000,000:1 and 178-degree viewing angles.
The panel is rated for brightness of 250 CD/M2 and promises a response time of five ms. AOC says that users of the business world will appreciate the ultra wide aspect ratio because allows easy viewing of multiple documents on the screen at the same time. The screen also supports 100 mm VESA mounts. The Q2963PM displays available online right now for $499.
