Gone are the days when creative and professional people had to turn to laptops to find a machine powerful enough to run their software. By combining its ConceptD range with its suite of SpatialLabs technology solutions, Acer offers a system optimized for creative use and features never seen before on a laptop.
Stereoscopic 3D will change the lives of creatives and engineers
With ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs, 3D designers will finally be able to see their creations from all angles thanks to an image coming off the screen in stereoscopic 3D, with an intuitive 360-degree perspective. The stereoscopic techniques used make it possible to reproduce the perception of relief from two flat images using a specialized optical lens and Eye Tracking technology, all sprinkled with artificial intelligence.
Unlike in the cinema you do not have here no need for special glasses to take advantage of the 3D screen, which is very convenient for checking compliance with the original design and for troubleshooting. Once they become experienced, creatives and engineers can no longer work without stereoscopic 3D.
SpatialLabs Model Viewer also offers additional options to enhance the experience, such as the ability to change a model’s HDRI background. This makes it possible to present a product in a realistic environment and to facilitate a presentation to a customer who, for example, can better immerse themselves in the model and get an idea of the final product.
Better you can connect an external monitor to the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs to edit the scenes and models in 2D on this second screen to evaluate the changes in real time with the stereoscopic 3D of the notebook. A configuration that can be achieved by combining Blender with SpatialLabsGo or Maya with, for example, the PiStage tool.
3D animators, developers, CAD, CGI or CAD designers, engineers, architects, videographers and many more need specific applications for their work. With ISV certifications* that ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs can enjoy, the consumer is confident in the machine’s capacity to offer software and hardware compatibility with the software he uses daily.
As for the interface, the computers in the series benefit from the ConceptD Palette, a dashboard that provides instant access to a many customizable settings. Thanks to it, you can configure different color profiles and switch between them with one click. This tool is also useful with its color picker to try and retrieve the color values displayed on the screen. There is also an on-screen keyboard shortcut feature and a wide range of split screen windows with automatic window size to improve productivity.
Developers will be happy to hear that SpatialLabs supports Unreal Engine via Acer XR Runtime **, to create new experiences with complete freedom and flexibility. For engineers and creatives, SpatialLabs Model Viewer supports all file formats of all major 3D modeling software, from Blender to Autodesk 3DS Max to Fusion 360.
Thanks to NVIDIA Studio and GPU acceleration optimizations, the computer allocates graphics resources in the most efficient way to boost creative applications. NVIDIA Studio also provides updated drivers developed in collaboration with creative software vendors for higher performance and enhanced functionality.
ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs benefits from one state-of-the-art hardware, starting with its display, which should be perfect for the demanding needs of creative professions. At a diagonal of 15.6 inches, the screen displays a 4K UHD definition and a rich and accurate colorimetry. The panel is Pantone-certified with color correction, covers 100% of Adobe’s RGB color space (wider than the sRGB standard) and is calibrated for faithful color reproduction where Delta E is less than 2.
For easier workflow and faster playback speed, this laptop is equipped with powerful latest generation components. It has an Intel Core i7 Tiger Lake processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics card. With 64 GB DRR4 RAM and 2 TB fast NVMe PCIe SSD storage, the system can generate video or 3D reproductions in record time.
With ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs, performance is not synonymous with heat or noise. Work with peace of mind on resource-intensive applications thanks to cooling system consisting of 4th generation AeroBlade 3D fans, which generates an aerodynamic “Vortex Flow” to keep the system temperature under control. All with a low noise level not exceeding 40 dBA.
That stik is also not left out, with an HDMI 2.1 port that supports 4K at 120 frames per second, a DisplayPort 1.4 and two USB 3.2 Type-C connectors with Thunderbolt 4. Wireless connectivity promises the best speeds with Wi-Fi 6 support standard.
* Independent Software Vendor (ISV) certification: All ConceptD products (towers and laptops) have been tested and approved for their compatibility with the software most used by creators. For more details on partner software, see the Acer Independent Software Vendor Partner page.
** Unreal Engine via Acer XR Runtime: Developers can create and customize projects for unique SpatialLabs ™ experiences for specific uses (eg museums, showrooms, hospitals or schools) that will be visible and interactable with in stereoscopic 3D.
