ECS Showcases LIVA Mini PC Lineup and Alexa Headsets at COMPUTEX 2018

No comments

Through the years, ECS has been expanding its portfolio of offerings, and we’ve seen the company bring about small form factor computers with style to match. Now, the Taiwanese motherboard manufacturer is up to something new at COMPUTEX 2018 as it unveils the world’s first “Alexa voice-activated headset” on its showfloor.

Enter the LIVA Aston Series

ECS LIVA Aston Headset Standard Version

ECS is branding its Alexa headsets under the LIVA banner, which is actually fitting since we know that the lineup is designed for lifestyle consumers. The Aston Series headsets are the “world’s first” headsets that has Alexa built into it. You don’t need to connect it to your smartphone or an Amazon Echo just to get it working. Out of the box it works as Alexa is all ready and set up to be activated on a whim, after you connect it to your home network.

ECS LIVA Aston Headset Premium Version

There are two offerings in the LIVA Aston Series – the Standard Version and the Premium Version. The Standard Version, as its name implies, is the base model that features 40mm drivers, 3 microphones, Bluetooth LE 4.2, and Wi-Fi, and a 5-hour battery life. The Premium Version on the other hand is everything upgraded with Hi-Res Audio and 40mm drivers, 5 microphones, and Active Noise Cancellation.

The LIVA Q2 Makes its Appearance

ECS LIVA Q2 

The LIVA Q is the world’s smallest 4K pocket PC by ECS, and we’ve taken it for a spin a couple of months ago. Fast forward to today and the company is now ready to showcase its sequel, the LIVA Q2. The LIVA Q2 is basically similar to its first-generation counterpart, although there’s a new option for Intel’s Gemini Lake CPUs. Network connectivity, memory and storage configurations remain the same however, although the latter of which is still expandable via microSD card slot.
