DisplayLink today announced that LG Electronics (LG) has launched North America?s first line of USB-connected computer displays based on DisplayLink?s USB 2.0 network display technology.
The new FlatronWide L206WU is a 20-inch monitor from LG that is certified for Windows Vista and feature DisplayLink?s DL-160 chip, enabling high-performance HD graphics over a USB 2.0 link. The display offers wide-screen resolution (1680x1050) for full-screen display of rich graphics and for playback of widescreen video.
With a multi-port USB hub built into the display, up to three LG FlatronWide monitors can be daisy chain connected to a PC while consuming only one USB 2.0 port on the computer. Future improvements will enable up to six monitors to be connected to a single PC over USB 2.0.
The DisplayLink DL-160 network display chip powers 32-bit true-color graphics with real-time video playback across a USB link.
