Acer today announced the launch of the Revo One RL85. Small in form, but big in capapbilities, the Revo One is a stylish personal computer designed to become the entire family’s entertainment center. Multimedia sharing, content streaming, huge storage and casting are core features of the Revo One, which means one device can now replace different solutions that take up space and create more work for users.
The Revo One will be on display at Pepcom’s Digital Experience! Event on Jan. 5th at The Mirage in Las Vegas.
Full Entertainment Center
The Revo One was conceived to be the home entertainment hub powered by Intel Core i3 or i5 processors. It supports dual displays (HDMI and Mini DisplayPort) Ultra HD (3840x2160) 4K2K video output, which provides four times the resolution of Full HD (1080p), as well as 7.1 channels for audio output, ensuring a rich, lifelike cinematic experience. The Revo One is truly ideal for watching TV shows, movies or photo slideshows. It features three HDD storage slots, each one capable of containing up to 2TB. If that were still not enough space, the Revo One also boasts two easily expandable SATA ports for up to 6TB and supporting RAID 0/1/5 to store big data worry-free. Thanks to AC Protocol, the Wi-Fi connection provides fast wireless capability, which is up to five times faster than on traditional BGN-powered PC’s1.
Not only does Revo One have big capabilities, it looks great. Developed to fit into any environment from the bedroom to the living area and even the kids’ playroom, it’s discreet yet stylish. Available in both black and white, it has a polished, glossy look with aesthetic curved lines and rounded corners. It may have a minimalist facade, however the Revo One is complete with all the essential elements that can be expected from a quality PC – and more. On the top surface, Revo One features an SD card port marked for easy access as well as four LED smart indicators, which light up to indicate the status of the LAN and hard drive at a glance. On the back all other ports, including two USB 2.0, two USB 3.0, HDMI and mini DisplayPort, as well as a secure latch that can be unlocked simply using a pen, enabling users to open it. Underneath, users will find everything they need for storage hot swap to change or replace hard drives.
Acer BYOC™ Apps
Revo One supports Acer Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC™), which gives users full access to their files on all of their devices no matter where they are. Acer devices now come pre-loaded with everything users need to use BYOC, a uniquely private way to access all files, photos, music, and documents using any device, even non-Acer devices. Best of all, everything is kept private and secure, because it is the user’s own personal cloud powered by his or her own personal devices.
Acer understands that easy accessibility and smooth media navigation are key to a pleasant entertainment experience. For this reason, Revo One ships with an optional multi-use remote control. This accessory features a full keyboard to easily type-in searches and text and a large track-pad to control media. Thanks to Acer Smart Control, an ad-hoc app available for iOS and Android devices, the user can control the Revo One remotely and stream content directly from their smartphone.
The Acer Revo One RL85 will be available in Europe from January at a starting price of €269.-.
