The mobile workstation enables content creators to work without sacrificing performance, thanks to Acer SpatialLabs, which covers a range of experiences supported by the most advanced optical solutions with real-time image processing and display and sensory technologies to provide a glasses-free stereoscopic 3D experience. The device is also powered by the NVIDIA Studio ecosystem, featuring NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Notebook GPUs with proprietary driver technology that develops creative applications for optimal performance and reliability. Briefly; The ideal laptop for 3D modeling, the new ConceptD 7 also offers a great option for content creators. Acer also announced ConceptD 3 Ezel’s models with 15.6-inch screens and ConceptD 3’s 16:10 aspect ratio models.

“Acer is a company dedicated to breaking the barriers between people and technology,” said Jerry Kao, Acer Co-COO. SpatialLabs is a great example of how we try to drive everything we do towards this goal. With this application, designers can view all 3D productions within the scope of their workflow, from computer-aided product and architectural designs to 3D graphic projects, in three dimensions. In this way, the percentage of success in decision-making increases. SpatialLabs also empowers content creators with new ways to tell stories and bring their ideas to life.”

Powerful Hardware, Innovative Technology

To create 3D models in real time, creators need powerful devices. The ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop meets this need with an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 3080 Notebook GPU with up to 64GB DDR4 memory and up to 2TB NVMe PCIe SSD It has storage features. These powerful hardware features power a UHD 4K PANTONE certified display that covers 100 percent of the Adobe® RGB color gamut and has a color accuracy rating of Delta E <2, allowing content creators to view 3D designs in full stereoscopic 3D.

The device’s screen includes a stereo camera system that monitors users’ eye positions, eye and head movements to view images in stereoscopic 3D. 3D images are produced by projecting two different images through an optical lens on the display panel, each refracted towards a different eye. Real-time processing technologies make this process happen instantly. For example, if the user turns their head, the stereoscopic 3D image is adjusted as if the user is looking around. In addition, the computer comes with support for artificial intelligence technologies that perform tasks such as stereo rendering and allow users to convert standard 2D content into stereoscopic 3D content.

Ready-to-Use Stereoscopic 3D Software for Designers

Out of the box, ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptops empower designers to bring SpatialLabs™ projects to life in real time. Supporting all major 3D file formats, the app allows creators to export their 3D models to SpatialLabs Model Viewer and convert them to stereoscopic 3D, while lighting, texture and HDRI backgrounds can be adjusted to find the most suitable presentation settings. Additionally; SpatialLabs Model Viewer plug-ins are available for 8 3D software packages, including Autodesk Fusion 360, Rhinoceros, and Zbrush. Models created in these applications can be imported into SpatialLabs Model Viewer for stereoscopic 3D viewing with one click.

The laptop can also be used with an extended 2D display. This feature makes it possible to create or edit content on a 2D monitor and then view changes made in stereoscopic 3D in real time with SpatialLabs. This speeds up the process of discovering design problems and improves workflows. Product designers can also use SpatialLabs Model Viewer to get an idea of ​​what their designed item will look like before investing time and resources on product deliverables. This allows managers and team members to provide clearer feedback at every stage of a project. Customers can also benefit from visualization to ensure the design aligns with expectations.

Acer’s proprietary solution, SpatialLabs Go, has been updated with AI technology that makes it possible to create stereoscopic 3D content from most 2D content viewable in full screen, such as photos, videos, simple games and video conferences.

SpatialLabs Developer Program with Unreal Engine Plugin and Ultraleap Hand Tracking Solution from Acer

Acer announced the SpatialLabs Developer Program for the Unreal Engine platform in May 2021. With this real-time 3D tool, creators and teams can collaborate and build product versions faster than ever before without sacrificing quality or scalability. Along with the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop, the company has also launched the SpatialLabs Developer Site, where creators can access all tools, including the Unreal Engine plug-in and support for Ultraleap Hand Tracking. Using Ultraleap’s hardware and software, users can enter commands with hand gestures instead of a yellow mouse or remote. This provides a much more intuitive experience and reduces the need for users to touch the device itself, which is particularly useful for “high-traffic” displays in places like museums or entertainment centers.

Within the program, creators have the opportunity to work with Acer on a range of innovative content, applications and projects, all created with the ConceptD 7 SpatialLabs Edition laptop. E.g;

  • A car configurator can enable dealers to show different models and options to their customers, even if the desired designs are not available in the portfolio.
  • Interior designers can share design steps with clients to give them a better sense of space and the scale of each element in that space.
  • Motion capture technologies make it possible to create videos with volumetric depth so that users can enjoy 360-degree cinematic experiences from anywhere in the world.
  • Geospatial earth observation can combine high-resolution data from satellites, aerial platforms and bathymetric sensors to create true 3D landscapes.

ConceptD 3 Series Grows With New Products

Additionally, Acer has expanded the ConceptD 3 series with a new 16-inch clamshell model (CN316-73G) with a 16:10 aspect ratio display and a 15.6-inch convertible model (CC315-73G) with Wacom EMR stylus. Both ConceptD 3 Pro (CN316-73P) and ConceptD3 Ezel Pro (CC315-73P) are powered by an Intel® Core™ i7 processor and NVIDIA T1200 Notebook GPU that can reach 4.6 GHz.

Standing out with their modern design, the new ConceptD 3 laptops all feature aluminum MgAl cases and a pristine white MAO (Micro-Arc Oxidation) coating that resists stains and abrasions. PANTONE®-certified displays with a Delta E<2 color accuracy rating ensure every fine detail looks just the way a creator intended.
