Monitor with Qi Wireless Charging Base De-clutters your Desktop
AOC announced an affordably priced 27-inch 1080p monitor (model P2779VC) with integrated wireless charging base that supports many Android smartphones. Simply place any Qi compatible device on top of the base to automatically begin recharging without any cables. The PC monitor also features wide-viewing angles, HDMI/VGA connections, 8-bit color depth, 5ms response, and matte anti-glare coating.
Qi Wireless Charging technology comes from the Chinese meaning “natural energy”. The technology is an interface standard developed by the Wireless Power Consortium for inductive electrical power transfer that wirelessly charges a compatible device’s battery using induction transfer. The monitor’s Qi Wireless Charging Base removes the hassle of cables and allows you to keep your device in view while charging and using the display, without having to worry about finding an outlet nearby. Compatible devices include Samsung Galaxy S5-6/Edge, Google Nexus 4-7, Motorola Droid Maxx, and Nokia Lumia 920-1520, among others.
Additionally, the display’s Plane to Line Switching (PLS) panel gives 178/178 degree viewing angle while maintaining consistent image quality and colors from all viewing positions. This PLS panel has true 8-bit color depth that results in incredible color accuracy and features a matte anti-glare coating that won’t leave fingerprints or smudges. PLS is perfect for graphic designing, video editing and photo retouching. You can also view your spreadsheets or weekend movies from virtually any angle without compromising color uniformity.
The P2779VC features Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution with 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio for greater color depth and detail. It also boasts a 5ms response time to eliminate drag. On the back, connectivity options include one VGA and two HDMI inputs.
