Acer and DisplayLink Ship 22″ USB Connected Monitor

DisplayLink and Acer today announced the availability of a new Windows Vista Aero-compatible USB computer monitor, with integrated DisplayLink technology. The 22-inch B223 screen, part of Acer’s ergonomic B series family of monitors, is now shipping in Europe.

With 1680×1050 widescreen resolution monitors, Acer’s new display has integrated USB ports to facilitate multiple displays easily. Using DisplayLink’s DL-160 network display chip, up to six Acer B223 monitors can be connected to a single PC or laptop, via a standard USB 2.0 connection. DisplayLink’s plug-and-play technology enables quick and simple one step set-up, and a five millisecond response time eliminates latency and ensures exceptional performance across multiple screens.

“At Acer, we’re committed to enhancing our customers’ viewing experience and mobility, and we realise that different types of users want different features and functionality from their monitors,” said Oliver Ahrens, Product Business Director at Acer. “By adding DisplayLink’s USB technology to our popular 22-inch displays, we’re making it easy and cost-effective for computer users to add extra screens. Building on our expertise with the B series, this new addition is ideal for businesses that need to carry out document comparison activities, or put together complicated presentations, or indeed any other image- or text-intensive computer task.”

The DisplayLink DL-160 network display chip embedded in Acer’s new range of monitors, powers high-quality, fully-interactive 32-bit true-colour graphics, with smooth DVD video playback across a USB 2.0 connection. DisplayLink is the first company to enable the 3D capabilities of the Windows Vista Aero interface for USB-connected displays with an unparalleled user experience.

Furthermore, given Acer’s success in the notebook market, the ability to easily add a larger screen is ideal for customers that require the mobility offered by a laptop, but also want the added benefits of more display space while at their desks. With the B223 monitor, it is possible to connect a laptop, wireless keyboard and mouse via a single USB 2.0 port, enabling users to simply create a mobile workstation. In addition, the height adjustment, rotation and swivel functions of the Acer B223 display make it ergonomically sound and suitable for all users.

“Since establishing our operation in Taiwan, the growth and interest in multi-monitor computing has been incredible,” said Taiwan-based Andy Davis, director of worldwide strategic accounts at DisplayLink. “To have ground-breaking industry leaders, such as Acer, add DisplayLink’s technology to their portfolios is a fantastic position to be in and endorses the increased demand we expect to see for these solutions.”
