|ASUS Launches 4 New All-in-One PCs in India
IT News Online Staff
ASUS has launched four new All-in-One (AIO) PCs in India. These include the ET2012IUKS, ET2210INKS and touchscreen models ET2012IGTS and ET2411INTI. The models launched feature stylish and ergonomic, space-saving designs and are wall-mountable.
The AIO PCs also feature ASUS SonicMaster Technology for improved audio clarity, louder volume and more detailed audio, Full HD video and DTS stereo sound, USB 3.0 for high speed data transfers, integrated graphics and HDMI-output for cinematic multimedia experience.
Vinay Shetty, Country Head - Component Business, ASUS (India), said, "The AIO market is growing at 7% per year and we expect to gain a substantial market share in our focus segments. The Indian market is now getting aware of AIOs, their usability, and starting to adopt them in households as well as in commercial set-ups. We are therefore entering the market with a new strategy and will be targeting senior executives, medical practitioners, professionals and students."
ASUS said that for its go to market strategy, it will continue to work with its 136 partners across the country. The company will also engage with 27 exclusive and trained retailers. Shetty also said that they would be launching a 27-inch touchscreen model later in the year specifically targeting gamers and media professionals.
ASUS will adopt a two-pronged strategy for its metro and non-metro customers.
"We will work with local partners in Class C and D cities, and make the products available in select retail stores in metros. Our focus will be more toward the smaller cities because the real market for AIOs lies there and not in the metros which are already saturated," said Shetty.
ASUS said it expects its partners to make at least 10% profits on the AIOs. The company will train the partners under its Sales Promotion Incentive Fund program, conduct road-shows, and set up demo centers at retail outlets.
The ASUS SonicMaster Technology employed in the AIOs refines every acoustic detail in pristine quality to deliver lossless audio - reproducing richer and more distinct vocals at a wider frequency range. ASUS said it uses a host of innovative solutions to deliver crystal-clear, immersive audio that is perfect for both music and movies. Engineered by audio experts, SonicMaster technology uses a fine-tuned digital signal processor to deliver an expanded sound range, improved fidelity and more distinct vocals.
All ASUS All-in-One PCs will come with a three-year onsite warranty.
