Dorsten, 17 August 2012 - If you want to view videos and photos taken with your iPhone® on a large screen, you should definitely take a closer look at AOC's myStage display, which is available now. This sleek 23" (58.5 cm) monitor, also known as e2343Fi, sports an elegant design and a universal iPhone and iPod® dock integrated into its base. iTunes and iCloud content on your mobile gadgets can also be synchronised via this dock. With the myStage, display specialist AOC introduces an intelligent and environmentally friendly product concept targeted at the million-strong Apple® fan community.
All-in-one solution for iPhone and iPod users
Thanks to the enormous screen diagonal of close to 60 cm, iPhone photos and videos can now be displayed in all their glory. Just plug your iPhone or iPod into the e2343Fi's dock to lean back and enjoy video content such as YouTube clips on this generous 23" monitor. To play back audio files, the myStage offers integrated into its stand two premium SRS loudspeakers with 5 watts each. In no time at all, the monitor thus turns into a veritable multimedia station.
Access to iCloud and iTunes
Content which is saved in iCloud can also be played back via the display's docking station. What is more, when the myStage is connected to a PC or Mac via USB, a synchronisation of the iTunes multimedia library is also possible. Consequently, the e2343Fi helps keeping your mobile devices up to date at all times.
On top: charger functionality
Placed into the docking station of the e2343Fi, the iPhone or iPod batteries will be charged - even when in use. All conventional docking stations and dock connector to USB cables can disappear into the drawer. This saves space and lets the desk look much tidier.
Perfect spare-time entertainment
Finally, family and friends can easily watch photos and videos taken with or saved onto an iPhone together. Just plug the iPhone into the integrated dock - and immediately an entire group can relish the images or enjoy YouTube© video clips directly from the iPhone on the myStage display.
Helpful office assistant
Being able to enlarge iPhone content can also be useful at work: photos of building sites, real-estate properties or other appointments in the field can easily be presented to several colleagues simultaneously - including all necessary details.
With its black casing, the e2343Fi is a genuine eye-catcher which matches the stylish Apple products perfectly. Even its profile is impressive - with just 12.9 mm depth thanks to the energy-efficient, eco-friendly LED backlights. Input sockets are located in the monitor's base so hanging cables do not disturb its aesthetics, making it an ideal addition to any modern office, even with its back facing towards the open room.
Innovative sound technology
The two 5 watt premium speakers integrated into the base are not the only feature that makes the e2343Fi's audio capabilities stand out: innovative SRS (Sound Retrieval System) technology provides for an excellent sound experience. Finally, external loudspeakers and distracting cables are no longer required.
Powerful display technology with LED backlights
Thanks to its 50,000,000:1 DCR contrast (1,000:1 typical) and an ultra-fast response time of just 2 ms grey-to-grey, the myStage renders high-resolution video directly from the iPhone in brilliant quality and without ghosting. Of course, data can also be input through VGA and HDMI sources, and the display supports HDCP copy protection.
Easy on the environment
LED backlight technology is particularly energy-saving. With less than 34 watts during standard use and not even 0.5 watts in stand-by mode, the AOC myStage consumes 40 to 50 % less energy than conventional LCDs. In addition, intelligent operating modes support the user in saving. As the manufacturing is mercury-free, the display is especially environmentally friendly. Environmental certificates such as Energy Star and EPEAT Silver are further proof thereof.
AOC presents a well-thought-out product concept. Besides serving as a conventional monitor, the e2343Fi is a welcome addition for Apple users, turning their mobile devices into true multimedia stations. The myStage will be available as of now at the recommended retail price of £ 224. The warranty period is 3 years incl. an on-site exchange service.
