Acer Computer Middle East is preparing to display its full product range at this year’s show. This expanding line-up, which includes Acer’s recently-launched LCD TVs and its all-new Media Gateway, highlights the growing trend towards digital convergence. Visitors to Acer’s stand will be able to check out its entire notebook range, desktop PCs, and its latest digital imaging releases — from PC gaming monitors to its LCD TVs and digital projectors. Exemplifying Acer’s convergence theme will be its new Media Gateway product. This has been designed to act as a valuable building block between consumer electronics devices in digital homes of the future. By linking PCs to LCD TVs, music centres and other such devices, the Media Gateway can play MP3 music files, display digital photographs, play DVDs, download web content or record a live football match, all via the same interface. Also on display at Acer’s stand this Gitex will be its personal digital assistant (PDA) range, its new digital camera line, plus servers, storage products, peripherals, and e-business solutions for business, government and education. “Technology customers in the Middle East are becoming increasingly knowledgeable and demanding more and more value from their dirhams and riyals,” explains Philip Ashkar, director of sales and marketing, Acer Computer (M.E.) Ltd. “With this in mind, what Acer is all about is empowering customers. We believe that our huge variety of the latest cutting-edge technology offers business and consumer electronics buyers an unbeatable range of options at unbeatable prices, and we encourage attendees to visit our stand at Gitex,” he adds. In addition to talking up its LCD TVs and Media Gateway product, Acer also expects to draw the Gitex crowds this year with its latest Ferrari notebook, the 4000. The vendor will also be explaining and educating delegates on its latest technologies, such as ‘SignalUp’ — a new concept in antenna design that Acer claims moves wireless performance to previously unseen levels of performance, and ‘GridVista’, a software tool that automatically resizes computer windows, splitting a display into dual, triple, or quadruple screens for more effective multitasking.
