ASUS unveiled new series of ZenPad tablets at Computex 2015.  This includes the 7-inch ZenPad 7.0 (Z370C/CG/CL), the 8-inch ZenPad 8.0 (Z380C/KL) and ZenPad S 8.0 (Z580C/CA) with optional Z Stylus and the 10-inch ZenPad 10.1 (Z300C/CG/CL) with an optional keyboard.

It has an expansive HD IPS display featuring the exclusive ASUS VisualMaster suite of visual enhancement technologies, which includes ASUS Tru2Life and TruVivid. The ASUS Tru2Life device  analyzes each pixel in an image before it is displayed and performs an intelligent contrast and sharpness adjustments to boost dynamic range, revealing even the smallest details to ensure an incredibly realistic viewing experience.

On the other hand, the ASUS TruVivid improves screen clarity, brightness, and touch responsiveness by transforming the conventional four-layer display design. The new ASUS device also sports cover glass, a touch panel, air gap, and an LCD module — into a two-layer, fully laminated design that eliminates the air gap, resulting in higher optical transparency for brilliant color and improved brightness.

The ZenPad series has been integrated by the DTS Premium Sound technology for a better audio quality. The built-in DTS-HD coder-decoder (codec) provides high-fidelity sound from all types of multimedia content, and lets users play back or stream movies and music with up to 5.1 channels of DTS surround sound to a connected audio system.
