Experience HD multimedia with a 10-point capacitive touch screen and SonicMaster Technology
Stockholm, Sweden (October 9, 2012) — ASUS today introduces the ET2701 All-in-One PC Series— an AiO PC with a frameless 10-point capacitive touch screen optimized for the Windows 8 experience through precise touch inputs. It utilizes a VA panel that delivers a wide-view 178° angle on both horizontal and vertical planes. The ET2701 is coupled with an enhanced version of SonicMaster technology, DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC™ technology, and a bundled external subwoofer that takes the audio and visual capabilities of AiO PCs to the next level.
Immersive crystal-clear audio through innovative technology
The ET2701 features built in SonicMaster technology optimized by audio experts — it features a finely-tuned digital signal processor that produces every note in pristine clarity with near-zero distortion. Also onboard is DTS Surround Sensation UltraPC™ ll audio technology, which delivers the most realistic, three-dimensional sensation of being completely surrounded by sound. The ET2701 comes with an external subwoofer with a 580cc resonance chamber dedicated to low-range frequency audio signals that provides a rich bass response never before heard in ASUS AiO PCs.
27″ wide viewing angle display
The ET2701 features a 27” screen that is ideal for both personal and shared multimedia entertainment. Its 1920 x 1080 Full HD LED backlit display comes with a high contrast ratio to deliver life-like HD images; its VA panel eliminates color shift and delivers a wide-view 178° angle on both horizontal and vertical planes to ensure stunning visuals from most angles. The optional Blu-ray combo drive and TV-tuner card gives users added entertainment options.
Increased usability and convenience
The ET2701 comes with a slew of convenient features that make it easy to surf the web, browse through movies and music libraries, or edit photos. The capacitive 10-point touch screen gives users precise fingertip control; giving them the ability to manipulate and navigate touch-optimized apps through intuitive pinch-zoom, swipe, scroll, or rotate gestures. The ET2701 also comes with two USB 3.0 ports, along with a HDMI input port that turns it into a 27” display for game consoles. VESA-mount compatibility also enables the ET2701 to be wall mounted.
