Sensational Displays at CES

AOC (Titian Ballroom 2,306, Venetian) will show new monitors, including a curved gaming unit, an UltraHD display and a quantum dot screen.

AOC C3583FQ LCD monitorThe C3583FQ is a gaming monitor with an unusual 160Hz frame rate. It has a 35″ curved display, with integrated Adaptive Sync; this is compatible with AMD’s Freesync anti-tearing technology.

Next is AOC’s first quantum dot display, the I2771FM9 (we heard about this monitor – unnamed – at the Cowen investor’s conference: QDVision Believes Colour is About Trust). It is a 27″ monitor with an IPS panel. If it is same model that we were told about earlier this year, it will be using QDs from QD Vision (as the Philips version does).

An UltraHD unit will be seen in the form of the U2879VF, with a 28″ screen and DisplayPort 1.2a and HDMI 2.0 ports. The unit supports Freesync. AOC will also show the I2781FH (AOC Slims Style Line Bezels), which will be launched in March, for £160 ($240) ex VAT.

China’s LeTV (stand 21,018) will be at CES for the first time ever, showing phones and a 120″ ‘uMax’ UltraHD TV, as well as connected lifestyle products. The company has not released much information, but has said that it will be at the Digital Experience press event on the 5th January.

LG has announced many new products, including a 27″ monitor with ‘proprietary colour-enhancing IPS display technology’ and a 15.6″ laptop with the footprint of a 14″ model.

The 27″ monitor is known as the 27UD88. Designed for creative professionals, its colour presets cover Rec.709 and SMPTE-C. The monitor also features a USB-C port.

Another monitor on show will be the 34UC98: a 34″ curved display with 3440 x 1440 (21:9) resolution, featuring a Thunderbolt 2 port. This model is aimed at gamers and digital media professionals. It will be joined by a 27″ UltraHD monitor called the 27UD68. Both of these use AMD’s Freesync technology.

Two other monitors are the 34UM88, which is a 21:9 display with Thunderbolt 2; and the ‘Infinity Display’ 24MP88.

LG’s new 15.6″ notebook is the LG Gram 15 (LG Enters US Laptop Market) (15Z960), which is has been called the lightest 15″ laptop in the world, at 980g. It uses an Intel Skylake processor to run Windows 10.
