At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Dell and Alienware are bringing innovation front and centre to satisfy the growing PC gaming market
Driven by the ethos of purposeful innovation, Alienware marks CES 2019 as a brand milestone with the debut of a totally new design identity, Alienware Legend, which sets a new bar of excellence for what gamers want most – performance and function. Alienware evaluated multiple concepts and choose one that was the biggest and boldest departure from its current look and the sea of sameness in the industry.
Alienware Legend stays true to the brand’s core design tenets, taking cues from its deep roots in sci-fi culture and its early industrial designs, to distinguish the brand from the rest of the industry. The new Legend design is optimised with cutting-edge thermal and cooling technology to achieve and sustain overclocking power, improved AlienFX lighting, ultra-thin screen borders, and a new “three-knuckle hinge” design that reduces the overall dimension while creating a stronger assembly, all combining to yield the ultimate gaming experience. Legend also introduces two optional finishes, Lunar Light and Dark Side of the Moon, more ways for gamers to stand out from the competition.
Alienware Area-51m, the world’s most powerful gaming laptop, is the first product to reflect the new Legend brand identity. Almost twenty years after Alienware launched the first gaming laptop with upgradeable graphics, garnered praise for its performance and went on to garner multiple awards, the company is proud to launch its second flagship notebook with upgradeable graphics and processors.
The reimagined Area-51m is the most powerful, upgradeable gaming laptop ever conceived. It marks the first and only laptop with a 9th Gen 8-core desktop processors, 64GB2 of memory, 2.5Gbps ethernet technology, upgradeable graphics and desktop processors, and 17” Alienware laptop with a narrow-bezel display with 144Hz. The Area-51m also has cutting-edge thermal and cooling technology, 50% more performance and 32% less volume than its predecessor.
Alienware’s latest flagship mobile gaming experience, the new Area-51m is stuffed with an array of gaming must-haves, including the Tobii eye-tracking technology and the latest Alienware Command Center.
Alienware recently introduced its thinnest and lightest 17” gaming notebook, the new Alienware m17, adding to the recently announced Alienware m15, for gamers on-the-go who prioritise weight and thinness for mobility. Powerful enough to handle high-graphic games, yet portable enough to take from destination to destination, the m15 starts at 4.76 lbs, while the m17 starts at just 5.79 lbs.
Performance is delivered with the 8th-gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors featuring dynamic CPU overclocking, thanks to elevated thermal headroom from Cryo-Tech Cooling technology. These industry-best processors are paired with the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 20 Series GPUs that deliver advanced gaming features including real-time ray tracing, artificial intelligence and programmable shading.
For those looking for an affordable yet powerful gaming system or purchasing their first gaming system, look no further than the new G Series. The G5 15 is redesigned to deliver enhanced performance with upscale features in a sleek chassis.
The thinnest G Series to date with beautiful narrow borders, the G5 incorporates 8th gen Intel CFL-H quad- and hex core processors and the latest NVIDIA graphics to optimise demanding AAA game titles and versatility for everyday use. In addition to the option of a blazing 144Hz refresh rate and G-SYNC display panels, the G5 is offering Alienware Command Center and 4-zone RGB keyboard with customisable backlighting for the first time. The Dell G5 15 Special Edition is also available in “Alpine White”, with a clear panel on the bottom of the system to show off the blue fans of the cooling system.
Alienware is distinguished by a fierce commitment to innovation and those who appreciate it. Having listened to feedback from its community, Alienware made more than 30 updates to its proprietary Alienware Command Center, the central hub that allows gamers to customise all aspects of their experience including system and peripheral lighting, power management, thermal control, overclocking, audio, and content organisation.
An Alienware first, the Alienware Command Center now offers GPU overclocking (and underclocking), allowing changes to take effect at the system level and work in conjunction with CPU and RAM overclocking as well as thermals. These user interface improvements to make Alienware Command Center easier to use.
CES highlights for the Alienware Arena App in the U.S. include availability for download on iOS & Android with exclusive game codes for full PC games. With this feature, gamers will receive push notification alerts for access to limited quantity full game codes, beta codes and DLC from anywhere instantly. In addition, daily instant games to win up to $1,000 in DA Rewards or Arena Reward points from 8th to 11th January.
Last year at CES, Alienware and Team Liquid announced their collaboration on the first Alienware Training Facility. Located in Los Angeles, the 10,000+ sq.ft. facility and studio space serves as the US headquarters for the storied esports organisation. Besides the world-class technology, amenities, and support staff most would expect from an organisation of this calibre, the professional atmosphere and work-life balance truly helped to propel Team Liquid athletes even further.
Since the facility’s opening in March 2018, Team Liquid’s League of Legends roster have won back-to-back domestic LCS Championships, their Counter-Strike squad has competed and appeared in more than 10 grand finals and Team Liquid continues to be one of the most dominant, top-earning esports organisations in the world. The partnership between Alienware and Team Liquid has made a significant difference in how these professionals develop and stay successful throughout the season.
In 2019, Alienware and Team Liquid continue to raise the bar with the beginning of the second Alienware Training Facility in Utrecht, Netherlands, a state-of-the-art space that will become the future European headquarters and additional training hub for Team Liquid athletes competing across the world.
In addition, Alienware and Team Liquid will kick-off the most extensive and comprehensive hardware partnership in esports to date. Liquid’s athletes will now train, compete, live-stream and even help in the development across the full portfolio of Alienware desktops, laptops, premium displays, gaming headsets, and peripherals. This end-to-end hardware collaboration between Alienware and Team Liquid gives both organisations a perfect union focused toward designing and refining new iterations of elite gaming hardware and peripherals.
Reolink Launches a 16MP Camera and Dual-Lens Security Camera Lineup at CES 2024
Reolink has unveiled a new dual-lens camera lineup at CES 2024. The company showed off a 16 million-pixel security camera, Duo 3 PoE, and more cutting-edge security products and technologies, redefining the future of home and business surveillance. “Devoted to creating the finest security products for consumers and business owners, Reolink is harnessing the latest technology to make homes and offices more secure and comfortable,” says Fabrice Klohoun, Marketing Manager at Reolink. “We invite conference attendees to join us at CES to witness the latest advances in security solutions, including the 16MP images captured by our devices and additional capabilities of Reolink’s product offerings.”
Reolink Duo 3 PoE 16MP Camera
Reolink’s newest addition to its flagship dual-lens lineup, the Duo 3 PoE, innovatively merges two high-resolution lenses into a real-life vision with an enormous 16 million pixels. Users can capture more vivid details than ever before, including wanted or unwanted visitors, license plates, delivered packages and much more. Boasting an advanced dual-image stitching algorithm, the Reolink Duo 3 PoE camera creates a 180° panoramic view with minimum distortion. Users will experience peace of mind when it comes to property surveillance without missing a single detail.
The most innovative feature of the Duo 3 PoE camera is the built-in Motion Track. By overlaying multiple tracks and positions of people, vehicles, or animals over a certain period into a single picture, users can monitor footage within seconds. This feature removes hurdles like video buffering delays and having to watch multiple footage playback to confirm activity.
Reolink TrackMix Series and Argus Track
Reolink’s hybrid lens TrackMix series provides wide-angle images and target-focused close-ups simultaneously. Together with the auto-tracking function, the TrackMix camera lineup delivers the smoothest surveillance experience for tracking a moving target.
Reolink brings this hybrid dual-lens security technology to a consumer-grade security camera, known as the Reolink Argus Track. This sleek camera incorporates all of the must-have features on the TrackMix cameras: 4K colour images day and night, dual-view display – one for overall and the other for close-up, and 6x hybrid zoom. In addition, it is solar-powered with a 6W solar panel.
Reolink ColorX Series
Reolink is expanding its innovative ColorX true colour night vision technology into more lineups: 4K camera series, Wi-Fi camera series, and PTZ camera series.
Integrating an F1.0 super aperture, an advanced 1/1.8” sensor and HDR function, the new ColorX cameras CX810, CX410W, E1 Outdoor CX capture ultra clear and colourful visuals in extreme darkness, improving nighttime surveillance performance as daylight ones.
High-performing security systems should be full-range and centralized. At CES, Reolink showcased three surveillance solutions for homes and businesses, ranging from wire-free battery solutions and fast Wi-Fi 6 plug-in solutions to solid PoE systems.
All Reolink security camera system solutions embrace a spectrum of advanced features, including 24/7 monitoring, AI-assisted smart detection, instant motion alerts, and more.
LG Launches the “World’s First” Wireless Transparent OLED TV at CES 2024
LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling the world’s first wireless transparent OLED TV at CES 2024. The LG SIGNATURE OLED T is a true technological marvel, combining a transparent 4K OLED screen and LG’s wireless video and audio transmission technology to transform the screen experience in ways that have never been possible before. The OLED T unlocks a world of near-limitless potential, giving users the unprecedented freedom to meticulously curate their living spaces. This is complemented by the class-leading picture quality and performance of LG OLED, powered by the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor.
LG SIGNATURE OLED T liberates users from a dominant black screen that competes with the décor in their home. Maintaining its 77-inch screen size, OLED T and its innovative transparent display seamlessly harmonize with its environment. Practically invisible when turned off, it blends into the environment and frees users from the long-standing problem of what to do with the ‘big black screen.’ The TV’s beautiful see-through screen also helps to make one’s space feel larger, providing a sense of openness.
The unique LG OLED T brings with it many new possibilities, from where it can be placed in the room, to the kinds of user experiences that LG can now deliver. Its transparent OLED screen removes the usual constraints that come with conventional TVs. No longer does the TV have to be placed against the wall. Instead, place the OLED T in the middle of the room to become a divider or prop it against the window without blocking the view outside. The included Zero Connect Box, which leverages LG’s cutting-edge wireless transmission technology to send 4K images and sound to the OLED T, also enables users to place their TV anywhere, regardless of where the electrical outlets are located in the room. With no cables between the Zero Connect Box and the OLED T, users can enjoy a clean, cable-free viewing environment.
What’s more, the modular design of the LG OLED T facilitates diverse installation methods. The OLED T comes in stand-alone, against-the-wall, or wall-mount options. Customers can further customize by adding standing or floating shelves on either or both sides of the screen to best suit their unique tastes and preferences. LG’s transparent OLED lets owners discover new forms of entertainment and use via its dual viewing experiences: transparent and opaque. The OLED T becomes a transparent digital canvas for showcasing artwork, videos or photos with the Always-On-Display (AOD) feature.
The content displayed on the transparent screen appears to float in air, yet simultaneously fuses with the surrounding space to create a compelling and atmospheric visual effect. Another option is the T-Bar feature that offers a helpful info-ticker running along the lower part of the screen. The T-Bar displays news alerts, weather updates, or the title of songs being played while the rest of the screen presents a clear, unobstructed view of the space behind it.
For viewing in picture-perfect OLED, simply click a button to raise the contrast screen. In this way, users can instantly switch to take full advantage of LG OLED’s enhanced picture quality through the new α (Alpha) 11 AI processor with 4 times greater AI performance. This provides a 70 per cent improvement in graphic performance and a 30 per cent faster processing speed compared to its predecessor. OLED T offers the best of both transparent and vibrant-color screen experiences with just a click of a button.
“An incredible feat of consumer-driven innovation, LG SIGNATURE OLED T offers brand-new screen experiences plus the picture quality and performance of our award-winning OLED technology,” said Park Hyoung-sei, president of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “LG’s transparent OLED gives customers greater freedom to curate their living spaces, completely redefining what’s possible and pointing the way to an exciting future for the television industry.”
