Have you been thinking about adding a second display to your workstation to help with media creation? Perhaps you have been looking for a wireless monitor that could help you be more productive while on the move? If so, you might be interested in Evolve III’s Astro 4K wireless touchscreen monitor. Join us after the break to find out more about this innovative wireless touchscreen monitor that has been designed with creators in mind.
Evolve III’s campaign on Indiegogo has already been a huge success. They have secured $133.565 (at the time of writing) in pledges on an original goal of $20,000. What has got people so worked up about this product? The Astro 4K wireless touchscreen monitor actually sounds like a pretty decent bit of kit; it’s one that could help solve a few problems in creative settings.
The Astro 4K wireless touchscreen monitor will be available in two sizes (13.3-inch and 15.6-inch). It’s 10,000 mAh battery has a fast recharge time, and a full charge will last for eight hours. There is an HDMI input so you can connect it to your camera, it has two USB -C ports that can charge devices (phones, iPad, etc.), and two USB 3.0 ports. The monitor can connect to macOS, Windows 10, iOS, Android, and Chrome OS wirelessly. The touchscreen is 10-point, it has built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, can be used in portrait or landscape orientations, and has built-in speakers. That’s a pretty impressive list of features, especially for the price of $369 (13.3-inch) and $399 (15.6-inch).
The Astro 4K wireless touchscreen monitor may not be able to connect to your camera wirelessly, but it could still come in quite handy in studio situations. Imagine a much larger live-view monitor so you can see what your images will look like quickly. From content creation and photo editing standpoints, having a second screen for your laptop or desktop is always a plus. More screen real estate means you can be more productive. Evolve III says you can hook up gaming consoles to the display too, but with a response time of 15ms that would be a bad idea unless you like input lag.
The Astro Wireless touchscreen monitor can also hook up to your phone or tablet wirelessly, which is pretty cool. If you’ve been looking for a way to share images with clients, this could offer an interesting way to do that. The monitor could also double as a way to show off your portfolio to prospective clients. The Astro 4K wireless touchscreen monitor will start shipping November 2019. The 13.3-inch model will run $369, while the 15.6-inch model sits at $399. Head over to the campaign’s Indiegogo page for more details and specs on this interesting display.
