From an MSI press release:

Work Anytime, Anywhere

MSI’s PRO MP161 helps you to extend your screen from a laptop or duplicate the screen from a smartphone. As a result, you can communicate better or effectively share information with others anywhere. Whether checking business data while on the move, working or watching videos on a train, making an important decision on a flight, previewing recorded content, or playing games with friends during downtime, the PRO MP161 makes your life easier.

MSI EyesErgo Technology Brings Comfortable Working Environment

Our goal is to achieve a comfortable and ergonomic environment for our users. MSI Anti-Flicker, Less Blue Light Technology, user-friendly I/O ports, and an ergonomic adjustable kickstand contribute to the most comfortable environment.

The PRO MP161 has one mini-HDMI and two USB Type-C hybrid-signal connections that transmit video and power signals simultaneously. In addition, the reversible design of USB Type-C provides a quick connection to laptops or other compatible devices, like smartphones, that support Type-C & DP Alternate modes.

PRO MP161 also comes with a fold-out kickstand for displaying it on flat surfaces while allowing easy tilt adjustments for comfortable viewing angles and working positions. This convenient ergonomic fold-out kickstand with a 0° ~ 180° design enables you to orient the screen in both portrait and landscape modes. While the former is ideal for looking at documents, books, websites or coding, the latter is perfect for presentations and spreadsheets.

The Exclusive Display Kit App

The MSI-exclusive Display Kit software allows users to partition the screen in convenient ways to view multiple documents or images simultaneously. You can also set up color modes, including gaming, cinema, or eye-saver.
