Viewsonic have announced their latest LCD display, the VA2626wm, aimed at the professional on a budget. Despite being a whopping great 26-inch 1920 x 1200 1080p high-definition panel, with 6,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, the company is only asking for $529. If the quality they deliver is as good as the press release verbiage would have it, you could be looking at a serious bargain.
Starting with the projector, it has a 2000:1 contrast ration and 2220 lumens, which means it can be used just about anywhere. Add to that the 720p and 1080i support with its native 800x600 resolution and you’ve got yourself a nice projector. For those with more of an eco friendly mind it also has an ECO mode that saves power, lowers noise pollution, and extends the lamp life, the cost will save some paper too at a meager $499.
ViewSonic has long been one of the best LCD manufacturers on the market, so it’s not surprise that they eventually decided to give the whole digital picture frame thing a go, and now they have. They have new 7, 8, and 10 inch models that are available just in time for Mother’s Day.
Viewsonic announced an affordable 1080p LCD projector with Epson’s C2Fine™ panel and Silicon’s optic Hollywood Quality Video (HQV) technology. The Precision Pro8100 uses ViewSonic's proprietary Precision Color System (PCS), an image enhancement technology that renders natural colors with extensive tuning capabilities and Silicon Optic best in line VX-210 to achieve finest image reproduction. The Vx-210 has the Ewarp VX geometry processing allows more flexible projector placement yet maintaining highest possible image quality, it’s also capable to process dual channels simultaneously.
If you've got a 19-inch monitor, at what resolution does it display? Personally mine run 1440 x 900. For the most part, that's plenty fine for me. Most of what I do on the computer has to do with typing and reading text as well as gaming. For the former, I think that's about the right size for me not to kill my eyes. As for the latter, most games don't go any higher than 1440 x 900. However, if you crave something a little higher, Viewsonic's got what you need.
Viewsonic has added four new LCD monitors to its product portfolio. The first three are widescreen display modeled VA1926w (19"), VA2026w(20"), and the VA2226w (22", 21.6" viewable), while the VA926 (19") monitor is a 4:3 format display.
When speaking of ViewSonic, we think of monitors, but apparently they have ventured out into the handheld computer field as well. They have just announced the release of the three new rugged handhelds, the V38r-06, V38r-07, and V38r-07a. They are meant for a wide gamut of industries and meet IP54 design standards for sealing against dust, mositure, and extreme environmental conditions. They sport 3.5-inch 240x320 LCD displays, 520MHZ Intel Xscale processor, SD card slot, and hot swappable Lithium Ion batteries, meaning they wont shutdown or lose data when changing batteries. The premier models V38r-07 and 07a also feature 802.11b/g wireless, Bluetooth, barcode scanner, 1.3 megapixel camera, fingerprint sensor, and GPS support. Price ranges from $1,600 to $2000.
