Acer introduces monitor with 50,000:1 contrast ratio


Acer recently announced a 24-inch flat panel monitor with a 50,000:1 contrast ratio. It’s called the G24 and it’s “designed to entice PC gamers.” The monitor’s burnt orange design is meant to dovetail with Acer’s new line of Predator gaming desktops.

Other features include a 1920×1200 resolution, 2 millisecond refresh time, 400-nit brightness, and HDMI connection. No word yet on pricing or availability, but I’d guess “a lot” and “pretty soon,” respectively. Full press release after the jump…

Acer introduces the world’s first LCD monitor, the G24, that supports up to 50000:1 in contrast ratio. Designed to entice PC gamers, the G24 is dressed-to-thrill in an extreme contrast of orange-black colors and sleek contours, and supports high-definition (HD) graphics for intense gaming entertainment.

Radical design

The eye-catching exterior of the G24 with solid angled surfaces makes an immediate impression, while satisfying PC gamers’ needs and imagination. For a complete gaming package, the G24 and the Aspire Predator desktop PC are both painted with uncompromising metallic copper and feature deeply carved line design elements. Blue rays of light emanate from the power button of the LCD and desktop to exude a polished, powerful look.

Superb contrast and image display

Staying at the forefront of technology, the G24 includes Acer Adaptive Contrast Management (ACM), and is the world’s first LCD monitor supporting up to 50000:1 for outstanding contrast ratio. Acer ACM produces dramatic improvement in gradation and detail, especially for dimmer and brighter scenes, resulting in stunning picture quality. Acer ACM also enables the G24 to use less power and save energy.

Intense gaming entertainment

The 24" 1920 x 1200 resolution widescreen G24 is designed for graphics-intensive, win-or-lose moments of today’s fastest HD games and multimedia applications. Featuring the Acer OD (overdrive) technology that significantly improves gray-to-gray levels by reducing deviation in transition time, the rapid response time (up to 2 ms) permits immersive 3D graphics and video display. Users simply connect the G24 to Blue-ray Disc™ consoles or DVD players for an awesome cinematic experience!

Featuring Acer CrystalBrite™ technology with 400-nit brightness, the G24 produces vibrant, brighter images via backlit diffusion reduction. The technology promotes clearer images and sharper edges without ambient light reflection.

Advanced multimedia connectivity

Supporting the latest technology standards, the G24 is optimized for Windows Vista® operating system and supports HDMI™[1] for instant connectivity to DVD players, set-top boxes and HD game consoles. Further, Acer Empowering Technology permits full access to display settings at a single button; Acer eColor Management enables color parameter adjustments with great simplicity; while Acer eDisplay Management allows powerful color enhancement and features smart display rotation software.


The Acer G24 complies with the stricter standard of Energy Star EPA Tier 2 criteria for power-efficient design. All Acer LCD monitors comply with the WEEE Directive for environmental product recycling for a greener environment.
