Then Acer shifted gears by introducing two new portable monitors designed for 3D content creators and commercial spaces. of SpatialLabs view And SpatialLabs View Pro They are created to provide the best 4K visuals for two-dimensional art, as well as 2K detail for stereoscopic 3D viewing. Each 15.6-inch monitor can render stereoscopic 3D images without additional glasses or viewing equipment, so artists can work in 2D in their favorite programs and then check their work in 3D on one of the viewing displays.
SpatialLabs View series displays have integrated batteries that are rated for up to 5 hours of full use, so you don’t have to stay glued to your desk to create 3D models or animations. That’s great news for mobile or freelance designers and creatives who need to take a monitor to off-site client meetings.
View Series screens are compatible with Maya and Blender and Datasmith file formats to support additional 3D creation software in the future. SpatialLabs’ model viewer mode is integrated with Sketchfab to give creators access to nearly 1 million 3D library assets to experiment with or integrate into projects. Acer also launched the Spatial Labs developer site, which provides all the tools and advice for creators to build Unreal Engine projects with stereoscopic 3D technology for Visual Series displays.
The View Pro monitor features a VESA mounting configuration for commercial display options in businesses, schools or hospitals. Acer has highlighted AI-driven customer service and business conferencing applications to streamline customer experiences.

The screen has a low-by-gaming-levels 60Hz refresh rate, but this is to preserve the fidelity of the stereoscopic 3D video feed. Anything higher will lead to screen tearing, increased lag, and an overall miserable experience.

The CPU also features liquid metal thermal paste to better transfer waste heat from the processor to heatsinks, cooling fans, and liquid cooling systems. The Predator Helios 300 SpatialLabs Edition supports 50 AAA titles for stereoscopic 3D viewing, and Acer introduced the SpatialLabs True Game tool for gamers to check their libraries against supported titles and even see what it looks like in 3D.
Although Acer hasn’t revealed any pricing or release dates for their new products, ZDNet The brand monitors their site and provides updates as information becomes available.
