BenQ today announced the introduction of the first 24" widescreen LCD monitor with HDMI interface and 6ms gray-to-gray response time, the FP241W.
The unit is among the first multi-function monitors to achieve the new TCO ?06 certification. It also features proprietary BenQ Senseye and Advanced Motion Acceleration (AMA) technologies to further enhance the gaming experience. It has an MSRP of $1099.
Its High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) enables the FP241W to easily transfer data at the extreme rate of 5GB/second, critical in the playing of today?s action-packed video games. It also includes High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) and eliminates the need for signal conversions, ensuring the best quality video.
Built-in AMA technology greatly reduces gray-to-gray response time so moving parts of an image are clearer, no matter what the image content. The FP241W offers a GTG response time of just 6ms. Additionally, exclusive BenQ Senseye technology along with a 1000:1 contrast ratio ensure that the unit delivers vibrant colors and exquisitely rendered details.
The BenQ FP241W is among the first multifunction displays to be certified to the new international quality standard, TCO ?06 Media Displays. This new standard is in response to increased market demands for excellence in the display of moving images such as high-resolution action games. Achieving this certification means BenQ has passed some of the strictest requirements in the world in regards to ergonomics (outstanding picture quality, color reproduction); energy (low consumption in standby mode); emissions (low electric and magnetic fields); and ecology (meets or surpasses tough environmental criteria).
The unit also has many other outstanding features. It offers a 1920 x 1200 (WUXGA) resolution while the wide-screen format ensures no image distortion or cropping. The FP241W also features complete HD support.
With its Windows Vista Premium ready designation, the BenQ FP241W multifunction monitor is capable of displaying many new advanced features such as Aero effects, including translucent windows, Flip 3D, and smooth moving windows.
Bundled with the unit is Pivot Pro software, the industry standard for on-the-fly display rotation to vertical or horizontal viewing. Height and orientation of the screen can be adjusted from -5 degrees to 20 degrees up/down and -45 degrees to 45 degrees left/right to provide the ideal viewing angle and assuring the user of maximum comfort.
Two USB ports are located on the right side of the bezel and another on the upper part for easy connection of other peripherals. The FP241W complies with Energy Star v4.0 for computer monitors.
