DisplayPort 1.2 brings active cable support, longer cords and a new logo

By: Array

VESA have popped their heads up quickly to announce an update to the DisplayPort 1.2 standard. The updates include video connections that can be stretched up to 100 feet - five times that of what is out now and will use thinner gauge wire for more flexible cords. The one backlash is the cables are directional, but the new logo should help the confusion over which end goes where.

For those of you with DisplayPort hardware, and for those who over time will end up going DisplayPort, this is good news. Longer cables mean more options!

ASUS show off 24-inch LED USB-powered monitor

By: Array

ASUS have demonstrated a USB-powered monitor, the MS248B which is a slightly tweaked MS248H. This monitor is pretty unique; a single USB3.0 port at the back and that's it. One cable. The single USB3.0 cable transmits both power and data and being USB3.0 it's capable of providing 80-percent more power for configured devices.

ASUS have also managed to cut the power consumption of the screen down to 9W which is quite the feat considering the MS248H reportedly uses 33W. Spec wise the MS248B is a full HD 1920x1080, 24-inch, 10m:1 contrast ratio with a 2ms response time, a glossy piano black bezel, LED touch-sensor buttons and an ultra-slim 16.5mm profile.

 

Sharp teases the HT world with 85-inch, capable of 7860x4320, also capable of reducing HT lovers into tears

By: Array

If this were my own tech site, where I didn't have to type up a few paragraphs on the news I post, the only word that would accompany this news would be: Wow. I would end it with "Wow" and a link to the YouTube video - but holy bloody crap, Sharp and Japanese national TV broadcaster, NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) have jointly developed an 85-inch LCD compatible with Super Hi-Vision, a next-generation television broadcast format.

 

 

The new format comprises of 33 megapixels, or 16 times the resolution of HDTV, Super Hi-Vision is being pushed as offering a powerful, life-like image reproduction. R&D began in 1995 (!) and they aim to have trial broadcasts before the decade ends. Sharp used their UV2A2 LCD technology which allows them to create the first direct-view LCD compatible with the insanely high resolution performance of Super Hi-Vision.

Acer launches the worlds first 27-inch, 120hz, NVIDIA 3D Vision-compatible monitor

By: Array

Acer have hit the market first with a 27-inch, Full-HD, 3D Display. Dubbed the Acer HN274H, Acer have specced it well, Full HD, 100, 000, 000:1 contrast ratio, LED-backlit, 120hz refresh rate and a 2ms response time is not too shabby at all. Yes it's not an IPS-based panel, but for the fast-motion, first-person shooter fans like myself, the 120hz gives you a semi. If that doesn't get the blood pumping, it is also (and obviously) capable of 3D with NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology.

 

TweakTown image news/1/9/19538_12_acer_launches_the_worlds_first_27_inch_120hz_nvidia_3d_vision_compatible_monitor.jpg

 

Better yet, the Acer HN274H has the IR emitter built-in! Acer are even throwing in a pair of NVIDIA 3D glasses too. Acer have also added their eColor and Adaptive Contrast Management technologies which work dynamically to (apparently) deliver ultra-sharp and realistic visuals, here I was thinking that was the GPU doing that. The monitor looks great and I would definitely love to try one of these puppies out, Acer. Might be upgrade time for my Surround Vision Alienware setup!
