VIEWSONIC introduces three versatile, affordable desltop LCDs


17- and 19-Inch Displays’ Design and Features are Ideal for Education, SOHO and Consumer Use

ATLANTA.– ViewSonic® Corp. introduced three additions to its VA Series of LCD monitors at the National Education Computing Conference (NECC) 2007, including the 19-inch VA916, a traditional 4:3 display, and the 17-inch VA1716w and 19-inch VA1916w – both widescreen displays that bring panoramic viewing for multiple documents and HD video content to the desktop. The dramatic increase in viewing area on the widescreen allows users to navigate between multiple windows and applications in less time and with greater ease, expanding virtual desktop space without sacrificing physical desk real estate.

“These latest displays reflect ViewSonic’s ongoing commitment to meeting the needs of the education market,” said Jeff Volpe , vice president of marketing, ViewSonic Americas. “Our VA Series of displays deliver the features and performance to make the most of a customer’s technology budget.”

All three displays are Windows Vista™ Basic Certified, and incorporate a textured cabinet with thin-bezel design and a clean cable management system. Each display also includes additional features:

* ViewSonic VA1716w: With 250 nits of brightness (typ), 1440x900 native resolution, 500:1 contrast ratio (typ) and an affordable price point of $209 (estimated street price), the ViewSonic VA1716w display is an economical widescreen LCD that delivers exceptional desktop performance. This display is available in July and is ideal for the corporate guru, government economist or productive student.
* ViewSonic VA1916w: Shipping in August at $229 (ESP), the ViewSonic VA1916w display offers a 1440x900 native resolution and 2000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (typ) for crisp text and bright images. This, combined with the widescreen aspect ratio, is ideal for desktop entertainment and business applications – from panoramic 3-D game play and watching IPTV to viewing multiple spreadsheets and comparing homework.
* ViewSonic VA916: The 19-inch ViewSonic VA916 features a 4:3 aspect ratio, 2000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (typ) and 1280x1024 native resolution to deliver remarkably bright and rich colors. The VA916 will be available in August for $239 (ESP).

Both 19-inch displays, the ViewSonic VA916 and VA1916w, offer a high Dynamic Contrast ratio, a technology that dims the backlights to achieve darker black levels and better overall contrast and is ideal for entertainment applications. These displays also come equipped with ClearMotiv™ 5ms response times and 300 nits of brightness (typ) for smooth, broadcast-quality, full-motion video and are ideal for gamers, small or home office users and business professionals seeking a unique combination of lifestyle enjoyment and workplace productivity.

The ViewSonic VA Series displays will be sold through authorized ViewSonic retailers, resellers, distributors and mail order outlets, and are backed by a three-year limited warranty on parts and labor.
