Halle Berry Pretties up AOC Monitors Used in 'The Call' Movie

Some may hit the new suspense thriller "The Call," which opens this weekend in theaters, to drool over Halle Berry. Others may simply choose to drool over the number of AOC monitors used in the film's 911 emergency call center. AOC is hoping for the latter because, well, it drums up business. But pushing Halle Berry's face in front of the AOC logo won't exactly hurt business either.

According to AOC, the movie will mostly take place in a large, high-tech emergency call center with dozens of workstations equipped with panoramic monitor setups. Up to six AOC 23-inch LED displays are used in each setup, and more than 150 units are featured prominently throughout the film. Talk about product placement!

Fans wanting a similar setup in their home office can now win at least one 23-inch ultra-slim monitor thanks to a contest presented by AOC. Up for grabs is the AOC Aire Black LED (e2343fk), a glossy piano-black monitor featuring "one of the world’s slimmest display panels." It offers a 50,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio, 5 ms response time, WLED Backlighting, and a DVI-D with HDCP input. It also boasts a thickness of a mere 0.5-inch.

AOC's 23-inch monitor comes packed with the company's Screen+ software, which divides the area into four separate panes, each displaying a different window. To access a window, simply drag it to a corresponding pane.

"Work in four unique windows – or work in one window, while you chat with a close friend on your favorite social network in a second window, then check your email in a third window and read the news on a fourth," the company said. "The combinations and possibilities are endless."

To win this cool 23-inch ultra-slim monitor, simply go to AOC's Facebook page here, "Like" the company, and fill out the short form. Sorry, Halle Berry isn't part of the package.

    Looks nice but I could never use a monitor that small again after getting use to my 3x Asus 27" monitors.

    I find it really hard to get excited about any monitors when they're all the same ~96ppi displays. Give me something with a higher pixel density and I'd care!
