ViewSonic TD2220 Monitor: Magic on screen
ViewSonic, a maker of visual display products, is bringing this slick feature to computer monitors. Recently, it announced its latest touch-enabled LED display— the TD2220. The 22-inch TD2220 display is equipped with advanced dual point optical touch technology featuring a hardened 8H level scratch resistant surface to ensure high touch accuracy and durability. With full high definition 1080p resolution, the TD2220 delivers fairly good image quality for a variety of multimedia content, with a dustproof surface that is perfect for 2-point touch control, whether by finger, stylus, or even a gloved hand. It is available at a retail price of Rs.16,999.
If you are in the market for a monitor, then be informed that LED monitors are seeing rapid demand these days. A LED monitor generally refers to a monitor with a LCD panel and a LED backlight. A typical LCD monitor uses cold cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) as a light source to illuminate the LCD panel. In an LED backlit monitor, white light emitting diodes (LED) are used as the light source. Environmentally friendly LED backlights provide benefits such as slimmer design, about 50% less power consumption compared to traditional CCFL monitor and low electro magnetic interference.
ViewSonic’s TD2220 LED display provides many other benefits in addition to those mentioned above. For instance, it provides automatic touch functionality via USB connection under Windows OS. Paired with multiple video sources (DVI with HDCP and VGA inputs), and a 20,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, the TD2220 delivers an immersive viewing experience that is ideal for blur-free video and sharp business graphics.
I got to spend some time with the TD2220, and it’s very impressive. To deliver a premium audio and visual experience, the monitor features integrated speakers with SRS Premium Sound for crystal clear sound as well as dual USB ports for the connection of a keyboard and mouse, or external storage devices to access files, and multimedia content.
The TD2220 features a 100 mm x 100 mm VESA mountable design that allows you to mount it on a monitor stand or on a wall, depending on your specific needs. You can detach the base easily by unscrewing four screws and then mounting the display on its new stand or wall mount. I feel that the ViewSonic product will best serve the needs of commercial verticals such as kiosk and information desks where touch functionality is required. This is because of the TD2220’s dual point optical touch technology, which offers a highly accurate touch experience. Paired with its superior performance and durable 8H surface, this display will stand up to most any high traffic environment—education, kiosk and information booth or even home entertainment (image/video/gaming).
This Energy Star and EPEAT Silver certified LED display also supports different Eco modes for energy savings of up to 40% over same-sized monitors. The savings of LED can add up to thousands of rupees saved for large install bases, such as big corporate buildings or educational institutes.
If you are in the market for a LED monitor, you can take a good look at this decently-priced ViewSonic offering.
