Fremont, CA (June 21, 2017) — ASUS is excited to announce the ZenScreen™ MB16AC is now available in North America. The ASUS ZenScreen™ MB16AC is ideal for use as a secondary monitor for dual-monitor presentations, and its versatility helps you get things done more efficiently when you're on the go. It's the first portable monitor with a hybrid-signal solution, which means that it only needs a single USB connector cable to work with almost any laptop. It barely tips the scales at a lightweight 1.72lbs, and with its ultra-slim 8mm profile it fits easily in any travel bag.
Stunning Display and Innovative Options
ZenScreen™ MB16AC features a Full HD panel that delivers stunning 1920 x 1080 resolution visuals with outstanding color reproduction. It uses IPS technology to give you more flexibility when extending your screen, so you still get superb color and contrast - even from extreme viewing positions.
An innovative foldable smart case protects ZenScreen MB16AC from dust and scratches. The case can be folded into a stand to prop the monitor up in either portrait or landscape orientation. ZenScreen MB16AC also has a smart pen hole in the bottom right-hand corner, where you can insert a pen to prop the screen up when not using the smart case.
With DisplayWidget¹ software, ZenScreen MB16AC can automatically sense its orientation and switch the monitor between landscape and portrait modes. Landscape mode is ideal for presentations and spreadsheets, while Portrait mode gives you a perfect view of items such as documents, books or mobile websites.
Hybrid signal solution: USB Type-A and Type-C support
ZenScreen MB16AC only requires a single USB connection for both power and video transmission from the host device, cutting down on the number of cables required and providing you a neater work area. It features a hybrid solution that supports both USB Type-C™ (USB-C™) and Type-A connectors. For Type-A connector support, a software driver is installed to ensure compatibility with current and future devices.
