HP Launches new Monitors



With more businesses and organisations announcing strategies for hybrid work environments and students continuing to look at hybrid learning for the autumn, HP announced new commercial and consumer displays to address hybrid work and flexible learning environments. “The way we work, learn, and play has forever changed. Displays have become centerpieces for business workers and lifelong learners as they navigate their work and school days in hybrid environments,” said Joanne Bugos, global head of Personal Systems Displays Solutions, HP Inc. “Whether you want to collaborate or be productive on any device, HP has the perfect display to fit your life.”

With more than 70% of people judging others based on audio and video quality, it’s no surprise that 50% of people want their conferencing equipment to make them look like themselves and help them sound more confident. People want to make personal connections, and technology that helps bridge the physical distance between team members and coworkers is critical. The HP E24mv G4 FHD Conferencing Monitor is the world’s first Zoom certified monitor so users can expect a superb conferencing experience with technologies designed to work seamlessly with Zoom.

“We are excited to introduce the first Zoom Certified collaboration display for the personal workplace – the HP E24mv Conferencing Monitor,” said Eric Yu, Head of Hardware Partnership, Zoom. “This is the first certification of its kind, involving extensive testing. Zoom is committed to providing video communications that empower people to accomplish more.”

The E24mv Conferencing Monitor is perfect for home and office workers who want to feel confident going into every video conference. Users can present their best self with a 5MP camera for high-quality video chatting and the independent tilt option on the camera provides better facial focus while improved sensors pick up more colour and light, making it the world’s most advanced webcam in a conferencing monitor. The built-in speakers and dual microphones deliver and pick up the rich, life-like sound so users never miss a word, and the HP Eye Ease always-on blue light technology and four-way ergonomics provide comfort throughout long workdays.

With 33% of students using Chromebooks for school and 37% of students wishing they had an external monitor to use, both students and individuals working from home want a reliable setup that allows parents and kids to work, learn and play from home. And with kids learning and parents working on Chromebooks and other devices, there is a need for a monitor that can easily work with both environments.

The HP M27fd USB-C Monitor is the company’s first Works With Chromebook certified monitor that connects to a Chromebook out of the box, with no additional setup or troubleshooting required. The Works With Chromebook certification signifies the product has been tested by Google to meet specific connectivity, input, and power requirements so users have a seamless and compliant pairing experience.

Built to work on Chrome OS for full-functionality of Google suite, this monitor also works with any USB-C capable laptop to connect and power the PC in one simple, single cord set up. This monitor also has HP Eye Ease with Eyesafe certified technology that reduces blue light without impacting the colours shown. It is sustainably made containing recycled materials and ocean-bound plastics, and packaged in 100% recyclable packing. When paired with other Works With Chromebook-certified accessories like the HP Wireless Mouse 220, the M27fd USB-C monitor offers a seamless connection and friendly user experience with a Chromebook.

Review: Viewsonic ID1330 ViewBoard Pen Display



Over the past couple of years, a lot has changed about how we work and learn. With educational institutes being shut and teaching moved online, the demand for portable devices has increased. Viewsonic is a brand known for quality display products for years. The company also offers a range of portable pen displays on the market under its Viewboard series.

The company sent us the new ID1330 ViewBoard Pen Display which is aimed at distance learning and remote work use. The ID1330 is a portable touchscreen display tablet that can connect to a desktop or a laptop, to either extend the display of your laptop or PC or duplicate your laptop or PC’s display.

While the Pen Display itself does not come with an operating system of its own, it can be controlled with a bundled electromagnetic pen that recognises up to 8192 levels of pressure. This means you can use the ID1330 for taking handwritten notes, comments, and even for sketching if you are into creative content generation.

Inside the box, you get the Viewsonic ID1330 ViewBoard Pen Display, with a bunch of accessories that include a protective cover, a battery-free pen, three pen nibs, one pen nib clip, one USB-C to USB-C cable (1m), one mini HDMI to HDMI cable (1m), one USB-C to USB-A cable (1m), and the Quick Start Guide. The display measures 13.3-inches diagonally and offer a full HD resolution of 1920-by-1080 pixels.

The display also weighs less than 1-kgs, which is perfect for moving it around, if required. The ID1330 is also compatible with Windows 7 and above and it features a writing response of 266 PPS (point per second). In terms of I/O ports, the ViewSonic ID1330 offers two USB 3.1 Type-C ports and an HDMI interface.

On the left of the screen, you will find a set of physical control buttons, the functions of which can be customised through the Display Manager. There is no setup required to start using the device. All you need to do is to connect the ID1330 using either the USB 3.1 Type-C cable, if your laptop or PC has the USB-C thunderbolt port, or using the HDMI cable and the USB-C to USB-A cable to get started.

Once connected, you can either choose to extend your laptop or PC’s display or duplicate them. By extending the display, you will have two workspaces to work with. So suppose you are into an online classroom session and you would like to take notes, all you need to do is fire up any note-taking app and use it on the ID1330. If you are a creative artist, you can use the ID1330 as a sketching tablet. And if you are a content creator and would like to edit videos effortlessly, you would open the timeline on ID1330 and the preview screen on your laptop display, to make your job easier.

One of the things I liked about the ID1330 is its display comes with a matte finish. It is scratch-resistant and the overall look and feel is pretty good. As mentioned earlier, the ID1330 also comes with six customisable keys on the left side of the display. You can use these keys to open a specific application or use one of them to erase the screen instead of rubbing the digital eraser all over the screen.

The pen bundled with the display is very responsive and we hardly encountered any lag using it on multiple applications – whether it was taking notes or sketching. And since the pen is battery-free, you don’t have to charge it ever. We used ArtWeaver Plus to sketch on the ID1330 using the pen and we came away impressed. Everything worked as it should.

Pricing of the Viewsonic ID1330 ViewBoard Pen Display is, however, on the higher side, at AED 1900. Since it doesn’t come with any preloaded operating system, and you cannot install one, it can only be used as a secondary display with your PCs or laptops, which adds pen support if you need to write or draw something.

Having said all of that, the Viewsonic ID1330 ViewBoard Pen Display is suited for educators and creative artists. However, the high price tag may be a barrier for those considering purchasing it.

Price: AED 1900
