ViewSonic has launched a 3D monitor, called the ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED. The product is already available in the UK at a price of £330 (nearly $530).
The new display screen is an AMD certified 24-inch 3D LED-backlit monitor, and is supposed to work optimally with ATI Radeon graphics cards.
On buying the ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED, you also get a pair of active 3D shutter glasses – lettingyou watch 3D content in full HD – and two built-in 2 W speakers.
The V3D241wm-LED has a refresh rate of 120 Hz and a response time of 2ms, which, Viewsonic claims, make it ideal for both gaming and movies.
The new 3D LCD monitor is said to offer a contrast ratio of 20,000,000:1 (dynamic) and a brightness of 300 nits. It gives a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels (the display works in regular 2D mode, too).
Darren Grasby, corporate vice president, Sales, EMEA at AMD said, that t he ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED will “enable one of the most compelling stereo 3D experiences currently available.”
The 3D monitor – like most of its LED peers – features an economy mode which, ViewSonic claims, reduces power consumption by 50 percent.
In addition, the monitor gives you an USB port for hooking up the glasses. It also comes with D-Sub, DVI and HDMI connectors.
This LED-backlit monitor has a standard VESA mount on the rear that makes it easier for you to wall-mount the device.
Moreover, the monitor has been certified for use with Windows 7, providing Plug and Play compatibility.
James Coulson, European marketing manager, ViewSonic, said that the V3D241wm-LED is aimed at addressing growing user demands for display technology – at an affordable price – to enjoy high-quality graphics content in today’s films and computer games.
Coulson claimed that the V3D241wm-LED combines ViewSonic’s “display pedigree” with enhanced features such as HD and 3D, offering an “immersive viewing experience, but able to perform as a quality 2D monitor when required.”
