This is it. The ultimate portable display. A must for serious creators on the road.
The new espresso 17 Pro is a 17.3inch | 4K | 10-bit portable touch screen that’s just 9mm thin. Even before the display is turned on it looks impressive thanks to its aerospace aluminium build.
“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,” said Will Scuderi, cofounder and CEO at espresso Displays.
In the video above, Scuderi exclusively showed on-camera to Image Matrix Tech, how the 17 Pro takes portable monitors to the next level.
“We’ve listened intently to how people work today and where work trends are evolving.
“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,” Scuderi added.
I’ve been a big fan of espresso Displays but as a professional working in the video world, the previous models did not quite meet my needs in the edit suite. But that’s all changed with the espresso 17 Pro. Now with the specs like 4K, 17.3 inches, 10-bit, 100% DCI-P3 and 450 nits of brightness. espresso 17 Pro works via a single USB-C connection with thousands of devices. Compatibility options are available for devices that do not support USB-C.
Of course it continues to add touch to the Mac. espresso has re-engineered its touch screen software from the ground up. After trying the new screen, it clearly feels slicker and more responsive with better options.
STAND PRO AND BATTERY
To support the larger espresso 17 Pro there’s a new stand that secures magnetically to the rear of the display. The Stand Pro allows for work at various angles and heights, including portrait and landscape modes. Optimised for drawing and sketching, Stand Pro can be set securely to an 18-degree angle with a purple accented built-in kick-stand.
At the base of the Stand Pro you can add espresso Displays’ first ever battery pack. A 27,000mAh/99wH power bank that’s also airline friendly. Designed to fit flush beneath Stand Pro, it also adds height to 17 Pro display. When used with espressoFlow, users can dynamically switch charging direction between their device and Charge, and monitor battery consumption and diagnostics via an updated power tracking dashboard.
Jot by espresso makes the most out of the pen. Activated by a pen click or keyboard shortcut, Jot is a utility to capture, cut, save, and drop on-screen content between any app, window, or document. Jot acts like a digital sketch pad that sits over the top of a desktop environment, allowing you to sketch, take notes, and transfer content. Jot will be available to all 17 Pro customers as a free download.
espresso Creator, a paper-esque screen protective adhesive layer for the 17 Pro will also be available, ensuring comfort and a smooth writing and drawing experience.
Available as an additional accessory, Case 17 is a folio-style protector and kick-stand designed to attach to 17 Pro via magnets.
