Westinghouse Digital Introduces LCD Monitor Chassis for Commercial Applications
Company's First Industrial Monitor Line Features HD-Grade(TM) LCD Panels

With advanced video performance once exclusive to LCD TVs, Westinghouse LCD industrial monitor chassis offer premium customized display solutions needed for the growing commercial application of large LCD products in kiosks, gaming devices, electronic signage and more.
The monitors' HD-Grade(TM) flat-panel technology enables brighter images, higher contrast ratios, faster response times and wider viewing angles than typical computer monitors. The initial line - 17- and 19-inch LCD monitor chassis - is available now directly from the company.
"In a little over a year, Westinghouse Digital has grown from product launch to the sixth-largest LCD TV provider in North America," said Douglas Woo, president of Westinghouse Digital. "We believe the consistent high quality and value of our products we have successfully delivered to the retail channel will translate well in the commercial space."
