AOC has introduced a new 23-inch passive 3D-capable monitor with that is only 10.6 mm deep and with a thin 5.8 mm frame – the AOC d2357Ph.

AOC d2357Ph uses LED backlight and thus achieves the thin design, although it even has integrated speakers, supports HDMI 1.4 interface with frame packaging as well as row interleaved 3D and comes with a 2D to 3D conversion capabilities.

The new 3D monitor from AOC comes with 2 pairs of polarized 3D glasses, 1 normal and 1 clip on for people wearing prescription glasses. And although it is not mentioned, the monitor should be coming with the TriDef 3D software bundled for the stereo 3D support as AOC is an OEM partner of DDD and there is a special version of the TriDef 3D package intended for AOC 3D monitors. The AOC d2357Ph is scheduled to be launched in April 2012; the recommended retail price will be 239 Euro in Europe, not yet information about pricing and availability in North America.
