Posted on Wednesday, Jun 11 2008 @ 01:35 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
Asus unveiled two new LCD displays that can use the USB interface to accept input signals; the 22" VW223B and 20.1" VW202B.
Easy and Fast Expansion with EzLink Technology
Traditionally, to utilize multi-monitor computing would mean to rely on the support of extra graphic cards, detailed installation knowledge and extra time – making it too complicated for general users to fulfill their multi-tasking needs. ASUS’ EzLink Technology makes innovative use of existing USB interfaces to easily spread out the vision and screenspace of multiple monitors for a better viewing experience compared to just VGA; and also helps businesses defray their overheads. After only installing the EzLink driver once, users can expand almost any PC with ASUS EzLink Displays. Content can then be automatically moved back to the main screen or notebook display when the USB cable is disconnected. Monitors also return to previous configurations after reconnections – lowering the complexity of adding more monitors.

Moreover, the ASUS EzLink Technology enables up to six VW223B or VW202B monitors to be daisy chained over one standard USB 2.0 cable connected to a single PC or NB – greatly increasing screenspace for enhanced work efficiency. This is perfect for users who require a large amount of screen and desktop space like banking and finance executives, SOHO workers, professional bloggers, information seekers, etc. The VW223B is also embedded with a 3 port USB hub – which allows convenient connections to not just more EzLink Displays, but also other USB devices.

Enhanced Video Features for Better Viewing
The ASUS VW223B and VW202B embedded EzLink technology also offer exceptional image quality with rich video features. ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio) Technology automatically adjusts the luminance of the backlight for better displays according to the image contents, and improves the contrast ratio to 3000:1. The "Aspect Control" function allows users to select a preferred display mode between Full and 4:3 modes without image distortion. Splendid™ Video Intelligence Technology, which delivers optimized video performance with intelligent colour, brightness, contrast and sharpness corrections, as well as 5 video preset modes and 3 skin-tone selections to suit the users’ preferences.

The ASUS EzLink Display is simply an easy and cost-effective solution that increases productivity by adding additional displays without an extra graphics card, much deployment cost, and additional technical training. They are ideal for use in a wide range of commercial applications, and will provide an unparalleled user experience.
