Acer Unveils New Smart Monitors

Acer has introduced a new line of smart monitors including the DA1 and Nitro GA1 with 31.5-inch and 27-inch screens.

The monitors are designed to be used as entertainment hubs for streaming content, as an extended workstation for tasks, and for gaming thanks to the fast refresh rate. They also boast smart features like wireless projection and simultaneous viewing from different sources via Multiview.

The new Acer DA271K and DA321QK LED monitors come with 4K UHD resolution, while the Nitro GA271U P and Nitro GA321QU P are equipped with WQHD resolution and up to 180 Hz refresh rate. Equipped with HDR10, 250 nits brightness, the monitors work with AMD FreeSync and are NVIDIA G-SYNC compatible, helping minimize screen tearing when playing or watching videos. Ultra-low latency also delivers quick response times to help minimize input lag.

Google TV brings together movies, shows, and more from across apps and subscriptions, and organizes them for users to enjoy access to popular apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Disney+, HBO Max, and YouTube from one screen. Easily cast movies, shows, photos, and more on phones or tablets directly to the monitors with Google Cast, while wireless projection and screen mirroring technology in the devices eliminate the need for loads of cables to extend displays.

The Bluetooth connection capability further supports the movement to declutter wires and makes it easy to connect these monitors with other devices like speakers and peripherals. These can also be connected to Wi-Fi networks and seamlessly integrate with the ecosystem of smart devices.

The Acer DA1 and Nitro GA1 smart series monitors are equipped with a Multiview function that splits the screens into various sections. This is useful for multitasking since you can simultaneously view and interact with content from various sources and control these straight from the displays. Attach external webcams for video calling and streaming, allowing live streamers to choose their preferred platform to upload videos directly through the monitors. Their ergonomically designed stand makes it easy to find the ideal viewing position and can be VESA wall-mounted to free up more desk space in home setups.

All models will be available in Q4. The Acer DA271K will start at $480 in Canada; the DA321QK starts at $550; Nitro GA271U P at CAD $450; and the Nitro GA321QU P at $530.
