Companies have tried to make monitor bezels as small as possible, but it still leaves a gap. ASUS might have a solution to make them completely gone, but does it work?

      it seems very clear how those work from the video. it probably works better irl because your eyes don't really register the corners of your vision. all it does is stretches the sides and blurs the bezel out. it does seem kind of pointless TBH because if you're working with 3 screens, you dont' want those since you WILL see the blur as you work around all three monitors but for gaming, you're probably only going to look at the middle one which also kind of defeats the whole triple monitor setups. not to mention that very few games support triple monitor setups or resolution so why even bother? i have an ultrawide and most of the time, i can't be assed to actively search out fan patches for ultrawide if the game doesn't support it natively and would rather just skip the whole game itself. seikiro is one such game that annoyed me without proper kb/m support, esp when most of the prompts are xbox controller button prompt

    I feel like before hearing about this way back when it was announced, we never saw something like this, but man.....that's expensive for what it is. At $109 I figured it was a mini-screen or something to help hide the bezel but idk, that feels like a lot for what it actually is and like there should be a even cheaper option that does the same thing...

      @Eddy Tru Nail on the head in my case Use the two good ones for whatever I’m working on (having a monitor for whatever reference, source, etc you’re using is really handy) then a crappy old one (pre-hdmi old, so pretty much dumpster/goodwill tier) dedicated for media (e.g. music, IRglo, etc) It works for me, but definitely has drawbacks to work around

    I have been using a triple monitor setup for work for years. Highly recommend but I wouldn't use this device as I prefer the seperate screens to isolate particular tasks. Might be good for gaming, but I don't do this.

    I can see monitor manufacturers adopting this as a feature, with removable side panel's on a series of screens and slide in connecting panel's that contain the lens's that orientate everything perfectly because all the angels and fine tuning are removed via a tight premade fit.

    Surely with a modification programme running,you could squeeze the bezel coverage image into edge of the screen, and the lense would then stretch it out again over the bezel, in correct aspect.

    Honestly, I'll stick with my overlapping monitor technique that leaves me only a single bezel width between each monitor instead of two. The monitors I use have a very narrow bezel to begin with (about 7mm), so it's almost nothing with the overlap.

  • Brandon Hollowell
    Brandon Hollowell

    I'm curious if any of these big manufacturers thought of using bezel reducing factors to add a selling point. Like maybe a curved display edge on the left and right like the Samsung S-10 has? In my mind I feel like you could reduce the bezel by alot

    I used to have 3xAcer27inch triple monitors. It was a great experience, but I think I bit over. I then bought a 49innch ultra-wide monitor (which is same width as 2 monitors) and seems much better experience, as well as being able to focus on majority of screen size. For my 4 years experience I'd recommend to whoever interested to use an ultra-wide monitor than triple monitors, it's mainly: - Cheaper - Better cable and desktop management - Better looking - And better experience after all

    4:27 That's a feature with Nvidia surround; it cuts out the pixels that would've been behind the bezels so it continues correctly. So in this case, you can turn it off and you won't lose any information (pixels displayed wise). And I know I haven't tried it, but I have a feeling it's an immersion thing, not a competitive advantage thing.

    every time I see a 3 monitor setup reminds me nobody ever followed through on making simultaneous multi projection a thing and that was two gpu generations ago when they said they would. I just think it would be so neat to tell my pc that my outer screens are a X angle and have the image on them adjust so the edges of objects line up properly instead of looking like they bend or distort when it goes from one screen to another. but anyways, i never use three screens to game because of that so I settle for vr instead with a virtual desktop for games that aren't vr. no bezels in vr!

    this is interesting, cause on one side of it this looks awesome for gaming but then it makes me wonder how many times it would cause something on a webpage you are reading to be slightly stretched if it is near the edge of your screen

    whoa, this is definitely worth a buy if you're into racing simulator with a triple monitor setup. This mainly because VR Racing is not ideal with it's low FPS.

  • Mark George

    I think that if they made a software which comprises the width of picture on the edges would make this contraption much better and decrease the stretching effect

    if there is info missing behind where the bezels would theoretically be, i would want to dig into any possible "bezel corrections" being done, either in the nvidia control panel or etc. i imagine this would resolve that mild QoL issue. just a thought.

    I'm still curious how no company didn't come up with 3 monitor combo in a way that two side panels would be smaller, but vertical pivot, and a center one big master panel that would fit together nicely. That way, one could buy just center, or center and one side panel, or just small side panel as a normal monitor pivoted horizontaly. That way, panel production should be way cheaper than one ultrawide, and also a way more flexible and capable of high refresh rates.

    Interesting, prisms between to bend light to make things look at least a bit more seamless. I didn't hear you mention it during the video, but I'm wondering if you kept these & are using them on a daily basis? If so, what your experience is with almost seamless?

  • World Theory
    World Theory

    What someone *_really_* needs to make, is a device or software that takes multiple monitor signals, or virtual screens, and maps them into a virtual 3D space, to be viewed with a VR headset. Granted, we'll need to wait for that new display panel technology to go into production, and be used in a VR headset, to get the best possible experience. But it should allow you to have your bezel free experience. If the actual solution is a piece of hardware, you could even take display signals from multiple different machines, and map them to the same virtual workspace.

    They look like they’re made wide for compatibility with bigger bezzled screens. They look way overkill on those screens - would be nice if they sold different widths to avoid the over-compensation that looks jarring here

    Couldn't this be improved by writing a program that warps the content shown in the screen regions below the lenses in a way that compensates for lens refraction? This way, you would still lose horizontal pixel density, but the proportions would match up. Or does he already do this here and it's just impossible to get it done perfectly?

    I saw this video on my youtube home page and thought 3 monitors with no bezels. How is that even possible? I know given enough time anything is possible but no bezels in 2020?

    It might actually be more realistic in a racing game to have a little bit of bezel because in a car you have the frame of the vehicle around the front windshield obstructing your vision and those blind spots might actually add immersion under that use case..

    Isn't there a software making the image near to the bezels compressed ? I mean not compressed in quality of course, but putting more horizontal informations just under the area where you put the product. That way, when you put these things, it expends the compressed image that are near the bezels so we don't have stretched image in this glasses and we don't lose details... I'm sorry for my bad explanation, I'm not English btw, but I hope you get my idea
