ViewSonic has launched what they call, "the world’s fastest LCD monitors". The 19-inch VX924 and 17-inch VX724 featuring a 4 millisecond (ms) average video response time, which is up to 8 times faster than its competitors, said the company. These LCD monitors are targeted at extreme gaming, viewing DVDs and watching television. “Achieving the best results with gaming, streaming video and motion application usage has long been the domain of CRT technology,” said Jennifer Gallo, research analyst, IDC. “With manufacturers incorporating better technology, such as faster response times, we should see more of a shift toward LCD displays for these demanding applications.” The VX924 and VX724 incorporate ViewSonic’s proprietary Dynamic Structure and Amplified Impulse video response acceleration technologies to support rates of up to 250 frames per second across the entire color scale. This according to the company will produce superior performance for motion video, since the majority of video transitions on games and digital entertainment occur within these intermediate ranges. “Our LCD monitors provide exceptional performance for a variety of applications and markets. The addition of 4ms response time to our LCD monitors, will allow us to create the ultimate gaming monitors with motion video performance rivalling the best CRTs,” said Mel Taylor, vice president and director of marketing (EMEA), ViewSonic. These displays will be available in the second quarter of 2005 in the MEA region. ViewSonic plans to aim these high performance displays at the corporate and business users as well as gamers.
