The Taiwan-based manufacturer Asus has released a new monitor with webcam called BE24ECSNK for video conferencing – a sister model of the ASUS BE27ACSBK (approx. £590 on Amazon). The 23.8-inch monitor with cameras monitor has an IPS panel with Full HD resolution (1920×1080 pixels) at 60 Hz, a 1200:1 contrast, 5 ms response time (grey to gray), 8-bit color depth, and 350 cd/m² typical brightness.
Thanks to the Full HD webcam (which can be rotated 315 degrees and tilted 10 degrees), a microphone array with AI-supported noise cancellation, and two internal speakers (Asus states 1.2 watts, 2 watts per unit), nothing stands in the way of professional video conferences.
The range of interfaces leaves nothing to be desired with HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2 (input and output), a USB 3.2 hub (Gen 1), a headphone output, USB-C with DisplayPort alternate mode, and an 80-watt power supply. On top of that, there’s daisy chaining and docking station functionality including RJ-45.
The new monitor with cameras does not make any compromises on the ergonomic side either, as tilt, rotation, height adjustment, pivot, VESA mount (100 x 100 mm), blue light filtering, and flicker-free background lighting are available.
The power consumption of the Asus BE24ECSNK is less than 17.7 watts and the weight without the stand is 4.3 kg.
