ViewSonic LCD Wows With Big Size, Vivid Color and High Definition

26-Inch Display Features Striking Color Reproduction, 1080p HD Resolution and Expanded Connectivity

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7 -- - ViewSonic(R) Corp. continues to pioneer visual experiences on the desktop with the latest addition to its innovative VX 40 series widescreen LCD displays -- the 26-inch VX2640w. Boasting 3ms video response time, 1080p full high-definition (HD) native resolution and color saturation close to 25 percent better than traditional displays, the VX2640w is ideal for multimedia enthusiasts, gamers and graphic artists who demand smooth, broadcast-quality video and images with eye-popping color and contrast.

The VX2640w integrates ViewSonic's new OptiColor(TM) technology that offers high-quality color reproduction with a 102 percent 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. In addition, the display also features a dynamic contrast ratio of up to 4000:1 (typ) for enhanced light and dark images resulting in richer colors and vivid graphics for discerning users.

"ViewSonic has a long heritage of setting new standards for display performance to continuously bring an unparalleled visual experience to our customers' desktops," said Jeff Volpe, vice president of marketing, ViewSonic Americas. "The VX2640w leverages the industry-leading technology ViewSonic is known for to deliver a front-of-screen performance that exceeds expectations."

The 26-inch display not only affords a large viewable area to increase productivity, but the widescreen LCD also enhances entertainment experiences with a 1920x1200 super HD native resolution, and an HDMI input with HDCP compliance for compatibility with the latest HD DVD and Blu-Ray(TM) disc players.

Available in late January at an estimated street price of $649, the VX2640w will be sold through authorized ViewSonic resellers, distributors, retailers and e-tailers. The display is compliant with the strictest safety and environmental standards, including TCO and ENERGY STAR(R), and is made with environmentally friendly materials. ViewSonic's LCD monitors are backed by a three-year limited warranty on parts and labor.
