BenQ announces 23.6" 120hz 3d-capable monitor

BenQ have just announced the XL2410T - their first 120Hz, 3D-capable LCD monitor which uses an LED backlight. This means it's compatible with NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology, and for those of you (like me) who enjoy the fast refresh of 120Hz.

 

news/1/6/16825_20.jpg

 

The screen sports a 23.6" panel at Full HD 1920x1080, 16:9 aspect ratio, 2ms GTG (grey-to-grey) response time, meaning that the OverDrive technology is being used to achieve a faster pixel response than all other 3D-capable monitors (interesting!)

 

BenQ also claims it has a 10, 000, 000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio.

 

Interestingly BenQ partnered with ZOWIE, a professional gaming gear manufacturer, ZOWIE's gamer team joined in during the production development and testing stages. With their assistance, the XL2410T apparently has been designed to offer the best experience for gamers. Especially with FPS titles, reducing input lag.

 

Brother shows off crazy AirScouter glasses that shine images directly on the retina

Video goggles and glasses have been on the market for years now and universally they all have a few things in common. They all block your vision completely for anything going on around you and they all look really silly when you wear them. Brother is more known for printers than anything else, but the company has pulled the wraps off an interesting new product called the AirScouter.

 

news/1/6/16788_4.jpg

 

Brother apparently leveraged tech it owns in the printer business to design the AirScouter unit. The device is a projector that is connected to a plain looking pair of clear glasses. Rather than having tiny LCDs like most video glasses today, that little projector shines images directly on the retina of the eye. That sounds very strange to me.

Dell UltraSharp U3011 30-inch LCD now shipping

Dell has been shipping 30-inch LCDs for years now and I have been using one of the original 30-inch units and wouldn't give it up for anything. The new LCD is an improvement on the original LCD with a lot of nice new features and a big price tag. This may be the best LCD for gamers looking to play with high resolutions.

The screen has a 16:10 aspect ratio and uses IPS technology. The resolution for the LCD is 2560 x 1600 and it has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio. The dynamic contrast ratio for the screen is 100,000:1 and the screen can display 1.07 billion colors, which is way more than my original 30-inch LCD can handle. The screen has a 7ms response time so ghosting should not be an issue.

Christie announces new and very bright projectors in E-series value line

I think that we would be hard pressed to actually consider anything with the Christie name on it to be a value offering. Christie makes some of the best projectors anywhere, but they also tend to be some of the most expensive projectors around. You have probably seen a Christie projector in action at your local theater.

 

news/1/6/16702_4.jpg

 

Christie has unveiled a new E-series of projectors that it considers the value line. The new series includes the DHD670-E and the DWU670-E. The projectors share the same basic features, but do differ in one key area. The common features include 1-chip DLP tech with up to 6,000 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 5000:1 contrast ratio. The dual mercury lamp configuration makes the projectors bright enough for large or medium size conference rooms and other locations

BenQ and Zowie team for gaming monitor

BenQ and a company called Zowie have announced that they have teamed up to produce a new gaming monitor. BenQ has been making screens for computers for a long time. The LCD is thinner and more power efficient, but there are many who still miss the performance that came from the old CRT screens.

Zowie and BenQ plan to bring new LCDs to market that have the same sort of performance we got from those big CRT screens. The new screen will use the latest LED backlighting tech.

Latest stats are out on digital television growth

Some interesting stats down under have emerged in relation to how fast homes are adopting new technologies; in this case, digital television.

 

The federal government's Digital Switchover Taskforce has released figures for the second quarter of this year which show that the amount of homes switching to digital TV have surged during the June quarter due to significant growth in the Sydney and Melbourne markets.

 

news/1/6/16323_11.jpg

 

The biggest surge in the quarter was seen in Sydney, where it jumped 10 points to 71%, whilst in melbourne it has risen 13 points to 77% of homes. This is also the same period when the first region in Australia (Mildura/Sunraysia) switched off its analog TV signal, giving pure digital transmission only. 99% of households in this area have made the switch.
