Over the last year or so, 4K technology has slowly started to become the standard when it comes to our viewing experience. Gaming consoles have even had to adapt to the growing success of 4K, like the XBOX One S and PS4 Pro. Entering the 4K Monitor game is AOC with a 40-inch monitor that just might blow the rest of the competition out of the water.
Fremont, Calif. – April 18, 2017 – AOC, a worldwide leader in monitor display technology, today announces the U.S. availability of the new C4008VU8 40” curved 4K UHD display with 10-bit color. The monitor features an 85% NTSC wide color gamut and flicker-free technology for reduced eye strain. The ultra-high definition display allows users to see more on the screen at one time, giving them more ‘real estate’ and allowing them to see more detail for sharper and more brilliant images. This makes the C4008VU8 a perfect monitor for creative projects or productivity. The C4008VU8 is available at Amazon and B&H Photo Video for $899.99 MSRP.
The curved VA panels has a 3840×2160 resolution that boasts 1.07 billion colors, meaning the panel can present more depth and richer color to produce more vibrant images. VA is perfect for graphic designing, video editing or photo retouching. Users can view spreadsheets or watch movies from virtually any angle without compromising color uniformity. The C4008VU8 features a 60Hz refresh rate, wide-viewing angles and 5ms response time.
Eye comfort is one of the most important considerations when working on creative tasks. Normal LED monitors adjust brightness using pulse width modulation, which creates flickers that can cause discomfort over long periods of time. However, because the C4008VU8 features flicker-free technology, the backlight system is more comfortable and allows for healthier viewing.
The monitor also features PiP (Picture in Picture), allowing users to watch a live video feed while working on their PC. One of the really outstanding features of this monitor is its ability to display four separate input sources simultaneously without image distortion, in Full HD, with its PbP (Picture by Picture) functionality. The monitor can present four separate video windows, saving valuable desktop space and dramatically increasing productivity.
Finally, the C4008VU8 provides an immersive visual experience with its curved screen. Curved monitors deliver the best viewable angles that allow users to see more and reduce eyestrain. With its thin bezels, the C4008VU8 works perfectly in multi-monitor workstations.
