Fremont, Calif. – June 15, 2012 – AOC, the worldwide leader in HD display technology, today releases the Aire iPlay, the ultimate monitor for iPod and iPhone owners. This 23-inch Full High Definition display features a built-in 30-pin docking station that allows immediate video, audio and photo playback from iDevices through AOC’s patented plug-and-play technology. Along with the integrated dock, the base of the monitor also includes built-in speakers with SRS Sound. The 23-inch AOC Aire iPlay (e2343Fi) is available for $279.99 MSRP at Amazon.com, ABC Warehouse and TigerDirect, among other national retailers.
“The Aire iPlay displays photos and video content from your iPhone and iPod on a screen that is 37 times larger than the device it comes from,” said Robert Velez, Marketing Manager of AOC. “Whether you are playing videogames, watching movies on Netflix or videos on YouTube, or charging your iDevice, the Aire iPlay brings multimedia functionality to your monitor.”
The Aire iPlay is the only monitor with a built-in iPhone/iPod docking station and is ideal for iDevice users who want to watch movies or videos on a 23-inch high definition flat screen directly from their mobile device, PC, Blu-ray player or gaming console. The elegant and energy efficient Aire iPlay has a sleek design with a polished black bezel. The 12.9 mm-thin monitor delivers impressive image quality with Full HD 1080p resolution, a 50,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio and 2 ms response time. A Dynamic Contrast Boost feature creates five different color enhancement settings and allows for color adjustment in highlighted areas, while Screen+ software allows the user to divide the screen into four self-contained work areas. The Aire iPlay’s user-friendly graphical OSD menu can also be accessed directly through the mouse using integrated iMenu software.
Along with being EPEAT Silver Certified for its green packaging and production, the Aire iPlay is also equipped with multiple power-saving features for reduced environmental impact, while the LED backlight is completely Mercury free. An Off Timer allows users to set an alarm clock to turn of the monitor automatically, and the eSaver feature has preset power conservation modes for the display when the PC is not in use.
