Acer ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop

Chromebooks

Acer ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop (CN715-73G), bringing eye-popping, glasses-free stereoscopic 3D to designers and developers. The mobile workstation supports creators with Acer SpatialLabs, a suite of optical, display and sensory technologies with real-time rendering capabilities to deliver a glasses-free stereoscopic 3D experience.

It’s also backed by the NVIDIA Studio ecosystem, featuring NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPUs with exclusive driver technology that enhances creative apps for optimal levels of performance and reliability. Simply put, the new ConceptD 7 is an ideal laptop for 3D modeling, and also an excellent laptop for developers. A 15.6-inch version of the ConceptD 3 Ezel and a 16:10 version of the ConceptD 3 were also announced.

“Acer is dedicated to breaking the barriers between people and technology,” “SpatialLabs is a great example of how we try to let that goal guide everything we do. From product and architecture CAD to projects with 3D graphics, designers can finally see their 3D creations in 3D during the workflow to make better judgments, rather than having to wait till afterwards. Developers are also empowered with new ways to tell stories and bring their ideas to life.”Jerry Kao, Co-COO, Acer Inc

Powerful Hardware, Innovative Technology

It takes a truly powerful device to render 3D models in real-time, so the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop has been equipped with up to an 11th Gen Intel® Core i7 processor, up to an NVIDIA® GeForce RTX 3080 Laptop GPU, up to 64 GB of DDR4 memory and up to 2 TBs of NVMe PCIe SSD storage. All of this hardware powers a PANTONE®-validated UHD 4K display that boasts a wide range of color technologies to cover 100% of the Adobe RGB color gamut and reach a Delta E<2 color accuracy rating, ensuring that what creators see on the stereoscopic 3D laptop’s screen is what they get.

Sitting above the screen is a set of stereo cameras that track eye positions and the movements of a user’s eyes and head in order to display images in stereoscopic 3D. This is achieved by projecting two slightly different images through an optical lens that has been bonded to the display’s panel, each refracted to a different eye. Real-time rendering technologies allow this process to take place immediately. Furthermore, the computer comes equipped with a suite of AI technologies that perform tasks like stereo image generation, allowing users to turn standard 2D content into stereoscopic 3D content.

Out-of-the-box Stereoscopic 3D Software for Designers

Chromebooks

Right out of the box, SpatialLabsempowers designers with the ability to see their projects come to life in real time. Support for all major 3D file formats lets creators convert their 3D models into stereoscopic 3D simply by importing them into the SpatialLabs Model Viewer, where they can also adjust lighting, textures, and HDRI backgrounds to find optimal presentation settings.

Chromebooks

The laptop can also be used in tandem with an extended 2D screen, making it possible to create or edit content on a 2D monitor and then view any changes made in real-time in stereoscopic 3D on the SpatialLabs device. This speeds up the process of discovering design issues and drastically improves workflow: Product designers can use the SpatialLabs Model Viewer to get an idea of what the item they are designing will look like before investing the time and resources necessary to print or tool it.

Furthermore, Acer’s proprietary solution SpatialLabs Go has been updated with AI technology that makes it possible to generate stereoscopic 3D content from most 2D content capable of being displayed in full-screen, such as photos, videos, simple games and even video conferences.

Acer’s SpatialLabs Developer Site – Unreal Engine Plug-in and Ultraleap Hand Tracking Solution

In May 2021, Acer launched the SpatialLabs developers’ program for Unreal Engine, a real-time 3D tool that gives creators the freedom to realize their visions, empowering developers and teams to collaborate and iterate faster than ever before, with no compromises in quality or scalability.

With the launch of the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop, Acer also debuted the SpatialLabs Developer Site, where developers can get access to all tools including the Unreal Engine plug-in as well the support for Ultraleap Hand Tracking. Using Ultraleap’s hardware and software, users can input commands with hand gestures, rather than a mouse or hand-held controller. This allows for a far more intuitive experience and reduces the need for users to touch the device itself, which is particularly helpful for “high-traffic” displays, such as in a museum or show room.

ConceptD 3 Ezel Convertible and 16:10 ConceptD 3 Laptops

Acer also expanded its ConceptD 3 line with multiple new models, such as a new 16-inch clamshell model (CN316-73G) featuring a 16:10 aspect ratio screen and a new 15.6-inch convertible model (CC315-73G) which includes up to a Wacom EMR pen. A ConceptD 3 Pro (CN316-73P) and ConceptD3 Ezel Pro (CC315-73P) are also available, both featuring up to an Intel® Core i7 processor capable of reaching 4.6 GHz and an NVIDIA T1200 Laptop GPU.

All of the new ConceptD 3 laptops come with a distinctively modern design, featuring a pristine white MAO (Micro-Arc Oxidation) coating that resists stains and abrasions to protect the device’s all-aluminum MgAl chassis. From there, a PANTONE®-Validated display with a Delta E<2 color-accuracy rating ensures that all the fine details look exactly like a creator wants them to.
