ViewSonic released the 19" VX1962wm and 22" VX2262wm LCD displays at CES 2008:
ViewSonic has included the same innovative technology in the VX1962wm
as is found in the popular VX1940w, the market's first 19-inch widescreen
display to offer the high-definition (HD) resolution of 1680x1050
resolution. The VX1962wm also boasts up to 2ms response time and has 6000:1
dynamic contrast ratio (typ), making it the ultimate monitor for gaming and
HD content enthusiasts. This feature set combined with the high resolution
panel is also ideal for movie production and engineering applications.
For consumers looking for a larger display, the VX2262wm provides a
sizable viewing area to increase productivity while complementing any
desktop. The 22-inch monitor includes a super clear panel that displays the
most realistic black levels, drastically improves color quality and gives a
boost to the industry-leading 6000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (typ). The
VX2262w also combines 2ms response time, 1680X1050 native resolution and
300 nits of brightness (typ) to deliver fluid, full-motion images and
optimized video performance.
Not only does the new VX 62 Series include invisible stereo speakers
for a stylish look, but ViewSonic has improved the clarity and sound
quality of the incorporated speakers with the inclusion of SRS WOW HD
software, which is activated by installing SRS Audio Soundbox (SAS) that
comes with the monitor. This enhancement extends the frequency range of the
speakers and allows for better response and sound performance, which will
compliment the multimedia features in the displays.
"Breaking down barriers and setting new benchmarks in display
technology demonstrates ViewSonic's unwavering commitment to delivering the
highest- quality visual experience," said Jeff Volpe, vice president of
marketing, ViewSonic Americas. "The VX1962wm and VX2262wm make the ability
to enjoy games and movies on an ultra-sleek monitor without sacrificing
performance a reality."
The VX1962wm will be available in February for $269 and the VX2262wm will follow in April for $369.
