Acer also announces new V6820M/i 4K UHD projector that works with Amazon Alexa for intuitive control and operation
Acer today announces that Amazon Alexa will be coming to select Aspire, Spin, Switch and Swift notebooks, as well as Aspire all-in-one PCs starting from Q1 2018. Amazon Alexa will initially be available in the US via an update through Acer Care Center, while wider support is expected to be rolled out mid-2018.
Hands-Free Productivity, Entertainment and Smart Home Control on PCs
With Amazon Alexa, owners of compatible Acer notebooks and desktops can get more done by asking Alexa to check their calendar, create lists and answer questions; be entertained by asking Alexa to play their favorite music, podcasts or audiobooks; and manage smart home devices by controlling lights, thermostats and home appliances through voice commands to Alexa.
Notebooks such as the Switch 7 Black Edition and Spin 5 with Acer Purified.Voice and four digital microphones support far-field voice recognition from up to nine feet (2.74 m) away, while others with dual microphones will be able to activate Alexa within three feet (0.91 m). All supported convertible and 2-in-1 notebooks come with front-facing speakers and provide an immersive audio experience.
New Acer V6820M/i 4K UHD Projector Will Work with Amazon Alexa
In addition to the Acer Air Monitor, which already works with Alexa, Acer’s new V6820M and V6820i 4K UHD projectors will be among the first of its kind to support Amazon Alexa. Now part of the smart home, consumers will be able to control the projector after enabling the Acer Projector Smart Home skill by asking Alexa on a device like the Echo or compatible Acer PC, “Alexa, turn on the projector,” “Alexa, select HDMI as the projector source,” or “Alexa, change projector display mode to bright.”
With the Acer V6820M/i wireless projector, film fanatics can truly enjoy the cinema at home with an intensely sharp 120-inch 4K UHD (3,840 x 2,160) resolution display. The V6820M/i is compatible with HDR and Rec. 2020 signals, supports the Rec. 709 standard for cinema-like colour accuracy, and HDMI 3D2 for 3D home theatre experiences.
The projector ensures visuals are ultra-smooth even in fast-moving scenes with the Acer AcuMotion frame interpolation system, which calculates and generates intermediate frames, inserting them into existing ones for seamless motion. The V6820M/i can operate at an extremely low noise level of 19dBA (silent mode3) so even the quietest whispers can be heard in playback. Exact specifications, prices, and availability may vary by region.
