ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor: A Stunning 27-Inch Glasses-Free 3D and 2D Compatible Monitor

As more of our work and personal lives move into the digital sphere, the powerful combination of display, computing and manufacture technology has propelled the 3D ecosystem into an exciting new phase. There’s a growing need among content creators and professionals for more lifelike remote collaborations and a more streamlined process for creating 3D content, from 3D graphic design and 3D games to 3D videos. In response, Lenovo is introducing the ThinkVision 27 3D monitor, a trailblazing 27-inch screen that offers 2D/3D compatibility without the need for glasses, designed for more immersive creation, connection, and collaboration.

It provides a captivating 3D experience without the need for 3D glasses. Paired with real-time eye-tracking for fluid motion, its switchable lenticular lens offers more natural 3D viewing experiences.

The ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor can dramatically elevate productivity by reducing the need for additional computing power for 3D rendering, while giving a consistent user experience across both 2D and 3D modes. The precision of 4K clarity combined with professional dual 99% color accuracy (DCI-P3, Adobe RGB) makes this monitor the ideal tool for professional content creators. The 3D monitor projects two independent images to the user’s eyes, so that each eye sees the subject from a slightly different angle. This process delivers crisp stereo vision and depth perception in a natural and efficient stereoscopic visualization. The ThinkVision 27 3D Monitor is also loaded with built-in speakers and connectivity options, including USB-C® docking and modular camera support, providing expanded functionality and effortless charging.

Combined with its 3D Explorer software, the new 3D monitor forms a comprehensive ecosystem for 3D creation and consumption. The solution offers an easy platform for users to access all their 3D apps3, together with the capability to optimize work and comfort, while enhancing control and efficiency. The 3D Explorer platform arms creators with useful tools such as a 3D player for viewing videos and files with 3D effects, support for design and productivity software, and an SDK for developers to build 3D applications. New features will continue to upgrade over time to enhance and extend the 3D experience, pushing the boundaries of 3D digital interaction while providing a gateway into a vibrant and expanding 3D ecosystem.

Lenovo’s Pro-level Headsets: Stay Focused and Collaborate from Anywhere

Knowledge workers continue to need better audio experiences for connectivity or concentration as employees work from anywhere – whether at a noisy office, at home, or somewhere in between. Lenovo’s new professional headsets with smooth sound quality and snug comfort are designed for the hybrid world of conference calls – certified for Microsoft Teams™, Zoom™, and optimized for other select leading platforms. Lenovo Wired VOIP Headset and Lenovo Wired ANC Headset Gen 2 share a consistent form factor design and feature an inline call control box for easier use. Its USB-C plug (with USB-A adapter) offers more compatibility and replaceable ear cups enhance user comfort. The latter also prioritizes Active Noise Cancellation, thanks to the virtual elimination of distracting ambient noise.
