Framed by a glossy black bezel, the MT Monitor TV series shows off a slim design, further enhanced by the hidden speakers and the touch sensitive controls that maintain the monitor’s clean lines.

  • Gamma Correction controls the brightness level and colour ratios of red to green to blue, revealing images that are highly defined and vibrantly lifelike.
  • Progressive Scan increases the vertical resolution enhancing picture quality and clarity.
  • 3D Comb Filtering removes flickering and provides the most accurate on-screen colours.
  • Noise Reduction uses an algorithm to remove picture noise and artefacts. The result is a grain-free, crystal-clear picture
  • Pull down recovery is a technology that ensures fluid image motion and superior DVD quality, preserving the original film quality for a truly cinema-like experience.

The Acer Monitor TVs are also equipped with the Acer eColor Management system.
