Original Press Release:
ViewSonic Offers Brilliance on a Budget with New LCDS
Clarity and Color Meet Affordability with 19-, 20- and 22-Inch Displays
WALNUT, Calif., Sept. 20 -- Bringing even more choices to people looking for affordable, high-quality desktop monitors, ViewSonic(R) Corp. today announced four new options in its VA Series of LCD monitors. Offering increased clarity, vibrant color and brightness, the widescreen 19- inch VA1926w, 20-inch VA2026w and 22-inch (21.6-inch visible) VA2226w displays bring the desktop to life with the ability to view multiple applications simultaneously and enhanced video and gaming views, while the 19-inch VA926 provides a traditional 4:3 size for users with extremely limited desktop space.
"Small and home offices need versatile, yet high-quality options for the multitude of applications they deal with on a day-to-day basis," said Jeff Volpe, vice president of marketing, ViewSonic Americas. "With these affordable LCD options, customers don't have to give up quality and clarity because of budget constraints."
Starting at an estimated street price (ESP) of $229, the new displays offer a 2000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (typ), meaning sharp detail for text and graphics and better overall image quality. Dynamic Contrast adjusts black levels based on screen content, allowing for darker black levels and a higher contrast. An additional benefit is the significant reduction of light leakage on darker screens, especially when viewed from the side.
Each model has 300 nits of brightness for brilliant image and color quality and a ClearMotiv(R) 5 ms fast response time for smooth, broadcast- quality video ideal for business and gaming applications.
The displays are Windows Vista(TM) certified and fit easily into a small or home office with a slim-bezel design that takes up less space on a busy desktop, and feature multi-mode input technology that supports both digital (DVI) and analog (VGA) signals to make the displays compatible with any office setup. Numerous size options meet a variety of needs for the small/home office user:
-- Priced at $259, ViewSonic's VA926 LCD has a 4:3 aspect ratio and a 1280x1024 resolution offering high quality and affordability.
-- The VA1926w, VA2026w and VA2226w offer full, viewable widescreens for low ESPs of $229, $249 and $279 respectively. These full-screen displays are designed to enhance productivity by allowing users to view two full-size documents side-by-side, and giving gaming and entertainment application users a panoramic view.
The ViewSonic VA Series displays are available now through authorized ViewSonic resellers, distributors, retailers and e-tailers. The displays are compliant with the strictest safety and environmental standards, including TCO and ENERGY STAR(R), and are made with environmentally friendly materials.
