New Viewsonic Multi-Function Display Enhances Both HD Television And Pc Viewing


Wide-Screen LCD TV Provides Performance, Versatility and Value for Desktop or Den

WALNUT, Calif. , Oct. 14, 2005 – With the introduction of a 20-inch LCD TV, ViewSonicâ Corp., a worldwide visual display products leader, further expands its full-line of high-definition television (HDTV)-ready displays. The NextVision® N2050w wide-screen display is optimized for television, video entertainment and PC applications, making it an ideal solution for the office desktop, dorm room or kitchen counter.

At an estimated street price of $549, the N2050w offers consumers a stylish and affordable option for smaller-screen television and video entertainment. Multiple connectivity features—including composite, component (YPbPr) and S-Video—enable simple connection to PCs, cable, game consoles, DVD players and camcorders. An 8 millisecond response time minimizes ghosting for motion video and high-speed gaming. Compatibility with HDTV (480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i) and progressive scan DVD players, along with an advanced processor with reverse 3:2 pull down and 3D motion adaptive comb filter, combine to deliver a consistent, high-quality digital visual experience.

“It is predicted that LCD TVs will account for 25 percent of worldwide television shipments this year.1 With this increasing flat panel adoption, consumers are incorporating LCD TVs in smaller spaces including kitchens, bathrooms and studies,” said Jeff Volpe , vice president of marketing, ViewSonic Corp. “The superior value of the N2050w enables users to enjoy flat screen displays in any room, and utilize one versatile device for both entertainment and computing without sacrificing quality.”

The N2050w provides vivid colors and sharp life-like images with 500 nits of brightness, a 1366x768 resolution and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. It also includes a built-in 10-watt audio system for high-fidelity sound, an integrated NTSC tuner, and a deluxe universal remote control for single device management of entertainment peripherals such as DVD, stereo and cable boxes. In addition, full picture-in-picture and split-screen functionality allow viewers to preview two video inputs simultaneously.

Available now, the N2050w will be sold through authorized ViewSonic resellers and retailers. It is backed by a one-year limited warranty on parts, labor and backlight and is eligible for ViewSonic’s optional Express Exchange® program, which guarantees a replacement unit within 48 hours, where service is available. An optional two-year extended warranty is also available. ViewSonic offers toll-free technical support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, excluding major U.S. holidays.
