Singapore (August, 2017) — ASUS today announced ZenScreen MB16AC, the world’s slimmest and lightest 15.6-inch Full HD companion display. Prior to its release, ZenScreen MB16AC won the 2017 iF Product Design and Red Dot Design Awards. It weighs just 780 grams and has an 8 mm profile, with an ultra-thin 6.5 mm bezel that is 60 percent thinner than previous models to provide a larger display area.


Hybrid signal solution with USB Type-A and Type-C support

ZenScreen MB16AC only requires a single USB connection for both power and video transmission from the host device, cutting down on the number of cables required to give users a neater work area. It features a hybrid solution that supports both USB Type-C™ (USB-C™) and Type-A connectors. For Type-A connector support, a software driver is installed to ensure compatibility with current and future devices. The reversible, any-way-up USB-C connector makes connecting devices easy, so there is no chance of damaging the cable or port by plugging in devices the ‘wrong’ way.


Foldable smart case

An innovative foldable smart case protects ZenScreen MB16AC from dust and scratches. The case can also fold into a stand to prop the display up in portrait or landscape orientation.

ZenScreen MB16AC has an award-winning design that features a smart pen hole in the bottom right-hand corner, where users can insert the bundled ZenScreen pen to prop the screen up.

ASUS Eye Care technology

ZenScreen MB16AC has the TÜV Rheinland-certified[1] Eye Care Technology that includes Blue Light Filter and Flicker-Free technologies. ASUS Blue Light Filter protects users from harmful blue light by reducing blue light emissions by up to 70 percent, and features four filter settings that can be easily accessed via the onscreen display menu.

ASUS Flicker-Free technology reduces flicker for a comfortable viewing experience. It helps minimize instances of eyestrain and other damaging ailments, and is beneficial for users who spend hours in front of a display.
