AOC Launches the Ultra-Slim Aire Pro Monitor with Sleek Brushed Aluminum Finish

New addition to the AireLED Series features IPS panel and dual HDMI along with an award-winning design that perfectly complements modern homes and offices

Fremont, Calif. – November 17, 2011 – AOC, the world's largest manufacturer of LCD/LED Monitors and HDTVs, reveals the 23-inch Aire Pro, a sleek brushed metallic monitor featuring one of the world's slimmest display panels. This High Definition 9.2 mm thin monitor features an IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel, a superior type of screen that offers consistent image appearance and colors across the entire display, even from extreme viewing angles. The Aire Pro also offers Dual HDMI, making it easy to connect the monitor directly to your Blu-Ray Player or gaming console to watch your favorite movies and TV shows and play video games. Additionally, the monitor includes bonus features like embedded Screen+ software that allows you to divide the screen into four self-contained work areas for added productivity. The Aire Pro monitor (i2353Ph) is now available for $199 at, among other national retailers.

The modern widescreen Aire Pro monitor is one of the slimmest display panels on the market and offers impressive image quality with a 50,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 5ms response time, and twin HDMI ports for the ultimate HD viewing experience. The monitor is also equipped with multiple power-saving features for reduced environmental impact, while the LED backlight is completely Mercury free. An Off Timer allows you to set an alarm clock to turn of the monitor automatically, and the eSaver feature lets you preset power conservation modes for the display when the PC is not in use. The monitor's Power Saving Mode uses 50 percent less power, and Standby Mode uses only 0.1w. The monitor also comes in green packaging.

The Aire Pro has illuminated soft-touch controls on the front of its base and a user-friendly graphical OSD menu that make adjusting settings simple. The base also transforms into a built-in VESA stand that locks into place so that the monitor can be used on a desktop and easily mounted on a wall by simply pushing a button and folding the stand at its tilt hinge. No assembly is required for the stand. The monitor's easily accessible connections are located at the back of the stand.

"The Aire Pro is a high-end, high performance LED IPS panel display that is extremely versatile and ideal for both home and work settings," said Robert Velez, AOC Marketing Manager. "Along with its award-winning design and excellent image quality, the Aire Pro also offers environmentally friendly features that help to reduce energy consumption and costs."
