Acer’s T2 series touch LED monitors have been awarded with the Red Dot Award, one of the world’s most sought-after quality marks for excellence in product design. The award is presented annually during an international competition by a jury of 37 design experts for the Design Zentrum Nordrhein Westfalen in Germany. The jury members, which received 4,662 entries in 19 different categories, were joined for the first time this year by design guru Jimmy Choo.
"Acer’s slogan of ‘Explore beyond limits’ is a reflection of our approach to product design and market-oriented mindset. The desire to create easy, intuitive, user-oriented products is engrained in our design DNA as we strive to enhance users’ total experience and enable them to achieve more,” said Michael Birkin, Chief Marketing Officer of Acer.
Prof. Dr. Peter Zec, initiator and CEO of the Red Dot, pointed out that strong design competence and economic success nowadays go hand in hand, “The winners of the ‘Red Dot award: product design 2013’ are the protagonists of a highly developed design culture and design industry.”
T2 Series Touch LED Monitors
Also winners of the Taiwan Excellence Award, Acer’s T2 monitors are slender, minimalist and a masterpiece of design and technology that bring touch and type duality to desktop users. They set new standards in terms of ergonomics and smart viewing and are engineered to deliver top performance as well as a sophisticated design, and will appeal to graphic artists, professionals, engineers and tech-savvy users alike. In addition the T2 series can also be used in hospitality areas such as lobbies as information or interaction point with multiple users.
Available in 23 and 27 inch sizes, the T2 series are supported by a silver asymmetric stand and allow users to adjust the angle from 30 to 80 degrees tilt for the most comfortable touch usages, especially during sustained use. With 10-point multi-touch technology the T2 monitors support multi-user scenarios for an ideal touch experience.
The black super slim bezel features edge-to-edge glass that extends to the base thereby creating an illusion of floating on air. While the new generation full HD LED panels deliver a wide viewing angle, meaning users can view the monitors from different positions and still see clear images, rich details and higher color accuracy, allowing for better team work session, gaming with multiple friends or as display for the whole family.
The T2 series are equipped with both DVI and HDMI ports to provide advanced digital connectivity and enable outstanding HD viewing and quality audio. USB 3.0 ports ensure fast data transfer to and from external devices and can be used to charge other devices.
The T2 series integrate white LED technology that reduces power consumption by up to 68%; ensures exceptional reliability and delivers better performance. The monitors are also mercury free and built with arsenic-free glass.

The Red Dot award ceremony will take place on July 1, 2013 in Germany, at the Aalto Theater in Essen, Germany in front of more than 1,000 guests. Following the ceremony, the Acer T2 monitors will be showcased at the Red Dot design museum from July 2- 28, and online at www.red-dot.de.
