Australian success story espresso Displays – the company that introduced portable touchscreen technology to make it easier to work from anywhere – has just unveiled its latest product – the espresso 17 Pro.
The espresso 17 Pro is a stunning 4K portable touchscreen display that’s capable of displaying more than a billion colours and with 450 nits brightness.
The espresso 17 Pro connects to your computer with a single USB-C cable and can expand your screen real estate from your laptop or desktop computer as well as offering a unique touchscreen experience so users can interact with their favourite applications like never before.
“espresso 17 Pro is meticulously crafted to support professionals and creatives who need to perform at their best, wherever their work takes them and whatever platforms they use,” says Will Scuderi, cofounder and CEO at espresso Displays.
“Every aspect of espresso 17 Pro has been developed and refined to produce an unrivalled experience and helps people deliver their best work, whatever the task.”
Tech Guide was offered a sneak peek at espresso 17 Pro ahead of its official launch.
It has an impressive and lightweight design that’s made of aerospace grade aluminium with the same portability as the previous versions.
When we saw espresso 17 Pro for the first time, all we could think about were the many uses and possibilities the product could offers whether it’s in a corporate setting, on the go, for a creative professional or for video production.
And now the 4K resolution has provided the very thing many creative professionals have been waiting for.
“We’ve listened intently to how people work today and where work trends are evolving,” Scuderi added.
“Our innovation responds directly to what we see and hear from our customers, partners, and collaborators, which is why our products do not sit within the confines of traditional tech product categories.”
The touchscreen software has also been re-engineered to deliver enhanced and intuitive controls whether it’s connected to a Mac or PC.
Now espresso 17 Pro can support pro-level drawing and creative touchscreen controls.
Also announced today is espresso Jot – software that turbocharges your note taking and drawing and that can also work with hundreds of existing desktop and web-based applications.
Users can capture, cut, save and copy on-screen content and move between other apps and windows or documents.
Jot can also be used to mark-up documents and insert sketches into presentations and other creative projects.
Espresso has also launched a range of accessories to optimise the experience with the espresso 17 Pro.
The espresso Stand Pro attaches magnetically to the back of the display so it can be adjusted at the precise angle and height to suit what you’re doing.
You can also power the whole experience with the espresso Charge which is designed to seamlessly integrate under the stand and elevate it to an even higher position.
The battery can provide power to your laptop or smartphone when you’re working on the move.
The new espresso Creator is a screen protector that also provides a paper-like texture when writing and drawing on the espresso 17 Pro screen.
The espresso 17 Pro is available to preorder now with shipping in November. Launch bundles are also available with a preorder deposit.
