AOC launches powerful business monitor line-up P3 with USB-C docking, daisy-chaining or built-in 2MP / 5MP webcams
Display specialist AOC announces the professional P3 line-up with seven new monitors in three different sizes (24″/60.4 cm 24P3CW, 24P3CV and 24P3QW, 27″/68.6 cm Q27P3CW, Q27P3CV and Q27P3QW, and 34″/86.4 cm ultrawide CU34P3CV). 3-sides frameless, punchy and vivid IPS or VA panels offer 178°/178° wide viewing angles for increased viewing comfort when working online, on texts, spreadsheets, coding, graphic work and more. While their ergonomic stands enable a comfy working environment, 4-port USB 3.2 hubs on all models give further versatility in any business setting.
What makes these monitors stand out, however, are in varying combinations their built-in 2 MP or 5 MP webcams with Windows Hello™ support to let users instantly log in to their sessions, a DisplayPort output to create clean and sleek multi-monitor setups, and built-in USB-C docking stations to transform a laptop-based working environment to a productive desktop-based one with only a single cable. All new P3 models come in sustainable paper cushion packaging, and they are certified with the latest environmental regulations such as EPA, EnergyStar 8, TCO 9.0 and EPEAT.
These latest P3 models come in three main categories with future-proof technologies:
The QW models feature a tiltable, 2 MP (Full HD) webcam and Windows Hello™ support for increased comfort and security, and 5W speakers for a rich online conferencing experience.
The CV models come with an extensive built-in USB-C docking station, offering RJ-45 input to route network connection via USB-C, 65 W USB Power Delivery to charge and power notebooks and share the display, and they’re equipped with a DisplayPort-output to easily create multi-monitor setups without clutter. Instead of the DP-output, the ultrawide CU34P3CV boasts a built-in KVM switch to control two computers with a single keyboard-mouse-monitor setup. Dual 5W speakers complete the multimedia experience.
The CW models integrate both features and have the advantage of a tiltable, higher-resolution 5 MP (QHD) webcam with Windows Hello™ support, dual 5W speakers and the same USB-C docking station as the CV models with 65 W Power Delivery and DisplayPort output.
The CV models without the built-in webcam – the 24P3CV (24″ with Full HD IPS panel), Q27P3CV (27″ with QHD IPS panel) and CU34P3CV (34″ with UW-QHD VA panel) – are perfectly suited to be employed in flexible offices and shared workspaces. In addition to the more common HDMI and DisplayPort inputs, these models feature a USB-C input. Thanks to the built-in 4-port USB 3.2 Gen 1 hub, users benefit from the following when connecting their laptop with the single USB-C cable:
The display can be extended to the monitor
The laptop can be charged (up to 65 W)
The laptop can gain access to the network or internet thanks to the monitor’s RJ-45 input.
And the laptop can access devices connected to the monitor’s 4-port USB hub (such as a keyboard, mouse, printer, headset etc).
Instead of the DisplayPort-output, the ultrawide CU34P3CV lets users take charge of multiple computers or several peripherals with the aid of an integrated KVM switch.
To see and to be seen
In today’s world filled with online meetings and video calls, the affordable QW models 24P3QW (24″ with Full HD IPS panel) and Q27P3QW (27″ with QHD IPS panel) employ a tiltable Full HD 2 MP webcam with Windows Hello™ support and 2 x 5W speakers. The Windows Hello facial recognition technology lets users unlock their Windows sessions simply by looking at the webcam, increasing security and usability. Both models are perfectly suited in a deployment with fixed desktop PCs where video conferences may take up a huge chunk of the daily routine.
In a more flexible working environment, professionals can take their work laptops to a home-office setup on some days, and on others, to the office. This kind of flexible working necessitates a quick and easy switch from laptop to desktop setup, while it also requires a high-quality webcam for online meetings at the office as well as at home. For exactly this purpose, the CW models with USB-C docking and built-in 5 MP webcam offer the most complete package of the P3 series. The 24P3CW (24″ with Full HD IPS panel) and the Q27P3CW (27″ with QHD IPS panel) are equipped with QHD 5 MP webcams and 2 x 5W speakers, in addition to offering a single cable solution via USB-C to connect a laptop to the monitor and peripherals at once. Furthermore, if another monitor is connected to the monitor’s DisplayPort output, a full-fledged multi-monitor setup can be realised requiring no other cable, as the display signal is routed from the laptop via USB-C and the monitor’s DisplayPort output to the secondary display. Transforming a small cramped, laptop-based workspace to a productive, large desktop workspace is now just a cable reach away.
Connectivity and convenience combined
The CU34P3CV takes it up a notch with its 1500R curved VA panel and varied connectivity options. Due to the large ultrawide size making further multi-monitor connections unnecessary, DisplayPort output is removed, and instead, the CU34P3CV offers a KVM switch as well as Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture options for increased productivity with multiple sources.
With the KVM switch, two sources can be simultaneously connected to the monitor, and when a keyboard/mouse set is connected to the monitor’s USB hub as well, users can select from the monitor if they want to control the PC connected via USB-C, or the PC connected via the USB upstream port. For professionals working with a laptop and a desktop at the same time, this feature presents a neat and clever solution to employ two PCs at once.
Using an ultrawide aspect ratio (21:9) and high resolution (3440x1440), coupled with a higher refresh rate (100 Hz) as well as higher contrast (3000:1), the CU34P3CV is also a great candidate for watching movies or playing immersive games outside working hours. While the 24P3CV and Q27P3CV offer dual 5W speakers, the CU34P3CV has 5W x 2 speakers for a more rounded multimedia experience.
All models use Flicker Free technology as well as Low Blue mode and offer ergonomic stands or VESA mount options to safeguard user's health and wellbeing during the day or night.
The AOC 24P3CW, Q27P3CW, 24P3CV, Q27P3CV, CU34P3CV, 24P3QW and Q27P3QW will be available from February 2023.
