Samsung Expands ‘Level’ Series of Wireless Smart Audio Products

LEVEL_HS_RGB_00Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. today announced two new additions to its Level series of smart Bluetooth™ audio products, Samsung Level On Wireless and Samsung Level Link. Designed for music lovers seeking to pair outstanding audio quality with sleek design, Samsung Level On Wireless headphones incorporate the latest Samsung technology to offer top quality sound in an impeccable package. The Samsung Level Link seamlessly transforms traditional audio products into wireless solutions, using Bluetooth™ technology. Available from late April, both products offer easy controls including a customizable mobile application.
“With the Samsung Level series, we have brought together our industry-leading technology and design expertise to deliver users the best possible audio experience,” said JK Shin, CEO and Head of IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “The Samsung Level On Wireless and Level Link are built upon Samsung’s longstanding heritage of mobile innovation to expand our range of audio accessories that deliver organic sound quality, superior comfort, portability and style.”
Level On Wireless
Samsung Level On Wireless headphones feature circular ear pads, producing a sleek, sophisticated look and feel. Equipped with six built-in microphones, the headphones feature an Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) function that accurately maps surrounding sounds for a clearer, uninterrupted audio experience and help sending voice more clearly when people talk via phone. A dual-layered diaphragm system helps suppress excessive vibration, reducing noise and enabling the headphones to reproduce rich, balanced sound across a wide range of frequencies
Level On Wireless supports an easy-to-use touch control pad that allows users to activate and adjust a variety of functions such as S Voice, volume, as well as play, pause or skip tracks – all without touching the controls of the paired device. The headphones are also equipped with a unique Sound Sharing function, so users can seamlessly share their favorite tunes with other Level On Wireless users.

Providing both Send and Receive modes with a simple switch button, Level Link provides freedom from the hassle of wires.

CyberPower announced Trinity gaming PC

CyberPower Inc., a global manufacturer of custom gaming PCs, gaming laptops, and performance workstations, today announced it is taking orders for its Trinity gaming PC, a striking new concept in gaming PC design that splits the common hulking tower enclosure into three distinct "blades."

The CYPOWERPC Trinity is both an exercise in radical case design and a case study on the benefits of component compartmentalization. While the case defies imagination, there is a method to the madness of segregating certain components from others in order to dissipate heat while not sacrificing performance.

Split into three blades, the Trinity is designed to individually provide maximum cooling capacity to the major heat-generating components in the system. The tri-point design of the Trinity allows for powerful configurations in this striking chassis. The chassis supports the biggest and highest-output power supplies, as well as the longest and most powerful graphics cards. Support is also included for 120mm liquid cooling for the CPU.

The "Performance Blade" houses the graphics card that allows the Trinity to rip through the latest games. It supports full-length graphics cards, including the NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X and AMD Radeon R9 series. Several SSDs can be mounted adjacent to the graphics card for extra storage flexibility and performance.

Trinity can actually house an enormous amount of hardware. In addition to full-sized, high-output ATX power supplies, the "Storage Blade" in the Trinity can accommodate up to three SSDs, two hard drives and even a slim optical drive.

The "CPU Blade" is compatible with mini ITX motherboards with both Intel and AMD chipsets, and supports up to 16GB of DDR3 memory and the latest processor technology to power through all of the latest games and demanding applications.

CYBERPOWERPC hides the tangle of wires in a hollow hexagonal steel spine that connects all three blades and acts as a conduit for cable management.

The Trinity will be available in three models: the Trinity 100 with AMD A10-7700K CPU, Trinity 200 with Intel Core i5-4690K CPU, and Trinity Xtreme with Intel Core i7-5820K CPU. All models can be customized and are liquid-cooled by default.

Acer Announced 34-inch QHD curved monitor supporting NVIDIA G-Sync

Acer announced its newest 34-inch QHD curved ultra-wide monitor with support for Nvidia G-Sync technology, the Acer XR341CKA.

Based on an 34-inch IPS 21:9 ultra-wide curved QHD 3440x1440 resolution panel with 178-degree viewing angle, the new Acer XR341CKA is actually the first curved monitor on the market that supports Nvidia G-Sync technology. In addition to being curved, Acer also noted that the new XR341CKA monitor is also perfect for multi-monitor setups thanks to its zero-frame design.
While we still do not have the full specifications, in terms of maximum brightness, contrast or response time, the new Acer XR341CKA monitor also features 100 percent sRGB color gamut, which should appeal to design professionals and photo enthusiasts. It also comes with two 7W integrated speakers with DTS audio, as well as HDMI and DisplayPort inputs and a USB hub.

The stand of the Acer XR341CKA allos it to be tilted from -5° to 35° and adjusted vertically up to 130 mm.
