ViewSonic introducesthe 55 Series LCDs--20-inch VX2055wmb/wmh and 22-inch VX2255wmb/wmh--that include a bezel-mounted 1.3 megapixel webcam and microphone. The widescreen displays, built on the Windows Vista platform, provide consumers with display options that suit today's digital lifestyle and meet the needs of the growing number of virtual office workers.
Individuals are using computers for an increasing number of tasks that demand more of the entire system, including the display. ViewSonic's 55 Series monitors offer outstanding features to meet these growing needs. The integrated webcam and built-in microphone take advantage of the growing use of VOIP and make the displays perfect for communicating with family, friends or remote business partners. A 1680x1050 high-definition resolution creates clear, crisp images, while an ultra-fast 5ms response time prevents ghosting and blurring to enhance video conversations, movie watching and gaming. The larger viewing area of the widescreen displays enable multitasking, such as viewing multiple documents or applications without toggling.
With most users spending countless hours at a desk at work and home, the VX2055wmb/wmh and VX2255wmb/wmh offer a variety of ergonomic and health benefits, including a best-in-class 3.2-inches of height adjustment and a full 360-degree of swivel that allows the displays to be adjusted to suit each individual's needs. In addition, users will experience reduced eye strain with the 300 nits of brightness (typ) and 1000:1 contrast ratio (typ) of the VX2055wmb/wmh and the 280 nits of brightness (typ) and 700:1 contrast ratio (typ) of the VX2255wmb/wmh.
These displays are compliant with the strictest safety and environmental standards, including ENERGY STAR(R). The VX2055wmb/wmh and VX2255wmb/wmh will be offered in March for estimated street prices of $349 and $449.
