    Asus Designo Series 29" UltrawideCinematic Monitor Product Description

    Frameless 29-inch AH-IPS display with ultra-wide 2560 x 1080 resolution and B&O ICEpower audio delivers a truly cinematic viewing experience

    ASUS today announced the Designo Series MX299Q Ultrawide 21:9 Cinematic Monitor, a 29-inch widescreen display with an ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio and 2560 x 1080 resolution. The MX299Q features the latest AH-IPS (Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching) display for rich, vibrant color with 178-degree wide viewing angles, and ASUS SonicMaster audio, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® for superlative sound quality with its built-in stereo speakers. It also features an award-winning, simple and elegant sundial-inspired design.

    Ultra-wide resolution enhances work and play
    With a display area equivalent to that of two 17-inch (5:4 aspect ratio) monitors placed alongside each other, the ASUS Designo Series MX299Q Ultrawide 21:9 Cinematic Monitor has a display area 33% wider than a similar Full HD monitor. The 21:9 aspect ratio gives more room for working with multiple windows side-by-side, removing the need for a secondary desktop monitor. The ultra-wide 2560 x 1080 resolution also means there are no black bars above and below the image when watching widescreen 2.35:1 movies and gamers can also enjoy games in immersive cinematic widescreen.

    The LED-backlit AH-IPS display with extremely accurate color reproduction makes the MX299Q ideally suited to both professional and home use. 178-degree wide viewing angles also mean that images don't wash out when seen from either side, or above and below.

    Premium SonicMaster audio, co-developed with B&O ICEpower®
    The ASUS Designo Series MX299Q Ultrawide 21:9 Cinematic Monitor features ASUS SonicMaster audio technology, co-developed with Bang & Olufsen ICEpower®. A combination of advanced audio hardware and professional audio processing, SonicMaster refines every acoustic detail to deliver crystal clear sound with richer, more distinct vocals and wide frequency range. The MX299Q has an embedded Bang & Olufsen ICEpower® MobileSound 3 chip that delivers incredible audio fidelity through the two built-in 3W stereo speakers for rich and satisfying sound.
