One of the most interesting new displays from ViewSonic is the 22" widescren VLED221wm which features a LED backlight and a 12,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The panel has a 5ms response time, 1680 x 1050 pixel resolution and 118% of NTSC color gamut.
The VLED221wm offers consumers high-quality color reproduction by
leveraging OptiColor technology to display 118 percent of the color
gamut based on the National Television System Committee (NTSC) guidelines.
In comparison, most CRT and LCD monitors on the market today only display
70 to 80 percent of the NTSC's range of colors. This allows graphic
designers to more accurately match colors to printed materials, and gives
photographers and video editors access to a broader color spectrum. The
VLED221wm is ideal for high-end design applications such as CAD/CAM,
desktop publishing and moving production, which must achieve the highest
level of color performance.
The stylish, glossy black display supports a native 1680x1050
resolution, boasts a 5ms response time and features an industry-leading
dynamic contrast ratio of 12000:1 (typ), making it the ultimate monitor for
life-like high- definition content. The display is equipped with dual
analog and digital inputs and integrated stereo speakers to connect
seamlessly with other professional systems such as sound boards.
The environmentally-friendly design is not only mercury free, but also
results in lower power consumption of 38W, which is important for consumers
looking to reduce energy costs and their footprint on the environment.
The VLED221wm comes with a pixel quality guarantee that exceeds the
International Organization of Standardization's requirements for consumer
protection. ViewSonic promises immediate replacement if the display has
three sub-pixels locked in the on/off position, or if there is any
combination of four defective pixels. ViewSonic's guarantee offers the
world's highest level of consumer protection against "dead" pixels.
The display will be available next month for $799.
