Asus introduced at the CES 2018 an ingenious solution that will meld three monitors into one widescreen display, creating an illusion of seamless viewing experience. Asus dubbed the product as the ROG Bezel-Free Kit, which consists of two lenses that when installed will make monitor bezels disappear. Truth be told, there is no magic involved but only pure engineering that when in play hides the seams where monitor screens meet. “We’re demonstrating a new concept that hides bezels behind optical camouflage to create a more seamless picture,” Asus announced at the Las Vegas CES last week. The Bezel-Free Kit, Asus said, will highlight users’ sense of immersion when staring at three interconnected monitors, which by the way have to be any of the Asus ROG Swift PG258Q or Strix XG258Q.
Asus said the science behind the Bezel-Free Kit is mainly “to visually eliminate the gaps where their displays connect, creating the appearance of one extra-large, wraparound monitor for a totally immersive gaming experience.” “An optical device that requires no software or power to operate, Bezel-Free Kit uses light refraction to make the monitor edges disappear to the viewer. It provides an innovative, simple and effective method of increasing field of view and dramatically enhancing gameplay,” the company said in a statement. When installed, Asus made clear that proper fit and alignment must be observed in order for the Bezel-Free Kit to deliver “optical obfuscation,” in a convincing manner.
