The display is LED backlit and is called the MultiSync EA222WMe. The display has the same brightness as other displays while consuming 20% less power. The screen uses 52% less power than previous generation NEC displays and produces 61% less heat.
The display is ENERGY STAR 5.0, TCO 5.0 and EPEAT Gold compliant. The screen resolution is 1680 x 1050 and the LCD has a 30,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The screen brightness is 250 cd/m2 and the display has a 4-way ergonomic stand.

In attendance at CEATEC this month Sony is showing off a highly impressive 56-inch monitor dubbed the TRIMASTER SRM-L560.
What's particularly special about this beast is its resolution, four times that of 1080p; 3840x2160 to be exact.
Further to that, it's been said the LED backlit TV has a 176-degree viewing angle from all sides and is meant to be a color-accurate preview for video pros and others who need large screens.
This is also pretty funky :-
Users can also split up the display into four segments, each with full 1080p resolution, or else into two 2048x1080 halves for the sake of workflow. DVI, HDMI and VGA supply video inputs, but Sony is offering adapters for HD-SDI and SD-SDI more commonly found in the video editing world. Ethernet for remote control, as well as a USB port, are likewise built-in
Availability is said to be from November 1st, but you'll be forking out close to $7,700 in Japan for it if you want this baby in your lounge and there's no definite as to whether or not it'll make its way to the U.S.
There is nothing cooler than a glowing yellow pickle (except maybe when someone makes a sexually suggestive joke about it). Of course it is even better when someone uses it to show of how something else works.
MIT professor Vladimir Bulovic, used an innocent, yet soon to be heroic pickle to show us how Organic LEDs actually work. What happens is that they pass electrons through the organic matter to charge the substance. As positive and negative electrons collide they release photons in the form of light.
The demonstration is a very simplified showing of how this works (as the whole pickle is used to represent a single element in a normal OLED display but does show us how the principle works and what's more is pretty cool.
