ASUS Introduces the Designo MX279H and MX239H AH-IPS Frameless Displays

    Experience vivid life-like visuals along with B&O ICEpower®-enhanced audio


    ASUS, a global leader in the new digital era, today announces the launch of the MX279H and MX239H displays. These 27” and 23” displays feature a frameless design with a 178° wide-view angle Advanced-High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS) panel that provides stunning visuals while Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®-derived dual 3W stereo speakers along with ASUS SonicMaster technology provide a soundtrack to match. These simple but elegant displays provide an immersive home theater experience.

    A simple, elegant, and stylish design

    The ASUS Designo MX Series displays sport ultra-slim profiles — with the MX239H measuring just 14.5mm at its thinnest point; while the larger MX279H comes in at 17.5mm – thereby minimizing the desk space required. In addition, the MX Series’ edge-to-edge, frameless design has a bezel thickness of only 0.8mm. This simple but elegant design is further accentuated by a sundial-inspired stand which provides a sturdy base to rest on. The MX Series’ design also has garnered accolades at the 2012 Good Design Awards.

    Vivid, life-like visuals

    The Designo MX Series displays feature an LED-backlit AH-IPS panel with a 178° wide-view angle that minimizes color shift on both horizontal or vertical planes to ensure quality visuals from almost any viewing position. AH-IPS is the latest in IPS technology – delivering improved color accuracy along with increased energy efficiency. In addition, a 5ms response time also eliminates ghosting and tracers for more fluid visuals.

    With the ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) of 80,000,000:1 and 250 cd/m² of brightness, the MX279H delivers life-like visuals by adjusting backlight luminance to achieve the darkest black and the brightest white shades. ASUS Splendid™ Video Intelligence Technology ensures vivid colors in every situation, with six modes (Standard/ sRGB/ Scenery/ Theater/ Game/ Night) easily activated via a designated sensor touch hotkey.

    Premium SonicMaster audio

    These Designo MX Series displays feature ASUS SonicMaster technology – which was co-developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. This ASUS-exclusive audio technology combines advanced hardware and software to refine every acoustic detail in pristine quality to deliver crystal clear, true-to-life surround sound — reproducing richer and more distinct vocals at a wider frequency range and louder volumes. The Designo MX’s embedded ICEpower MobileSound 3 chip delivers incredible audio fidelity to ensure quality audio. ASUS SonicMaster technology, together with the built-in dual 3W stereo speakers, give these displays the capacity to deliver an immersive home theater audio experience.

    Multimedia Enjoyment

    The Designo MX Series supports Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolutions and has dual HDMI and D-sub (VGA) input ports to ensure compatibility with a variety of multimedia devices including Blu-ray disc players, game consoles, and digital cameras to enrich users’ entertainment experience.
