Viewsonic announces new LCD TV ‘s

Both flat screens feature a sleek design and are ideal for a variety of applications that require multiple video sources and optimal picture performance—from digital entertainment content to business applications. Advanced image processors provide precision scaling and the picture-in-picture capabilities enable users to enjoy a movie or television, while simultaneously working on computer applications in any high definition graphic or video modes. Viewers can use separate picture windows to preview up to nine different TV channels with the Multiview or POP function.

“The N2700w and N2000 deliver on ViewSonic’s reputation of image quality, style and functionality, while setting a new standard for price/performance in the LCD TV marketplace,” said Gene Ornstead, director, business development, ViewSonic Corp.  “With the introduction of these products, we are working to meet the rapidly increasing demand for larger LCD TVs by providing our customers with the freedom, versatility and high definition options that they desire.”

As the first ViewSonic wide-screen format LCD TV with a native resolution of 1280×720, the NextVision N2700w is optimized for high definition television and video. It offers plug-and-play connectivity with both digital and analog inputs, an integrated 181-channel TV tuner and a high fidelity 20-watt audio system. Compatibility with popular video entertainment devices, such as HDTV set-top-boxes, digital cameras, DVD players and video games, make the N2700w the perfect large-screen multimedia display for the home. 

            For smaller-screen television and entertainment applications, the N2000 is a great fit on the desktop, kitchen counter or bedroom table.  It features a super-bright liquid crystal panel with 16 millisecond response time that minimizes lag time for moving video and high-speed gaming.  An advanced processor featuring a 4H comb filter and reverse 3:2 pull down provides optimum video quality.   Parental control and closed caption options are also available to help customize each user’s viewing experience.

Compatible with both PC and Mac® computer systems, the NextVision N2700w and N2000 have S-Video, component (YPbPr) and composite video connections.  Both LCD TVs include an advanced remote control and DC power supply and a highly reliable backlight.  They can be easily attached to a wall or a ceiling with an optional mounting kit.

The ViewSonic N2700w and N2000 will be available in September through authorized resellers, retailers, distributors and mail order for an estimated street price of $2499 and $1099 respectively. They are backed by a one-year limited warranty on parts, labor and backlight and eligible for ViewSonic’s optional Express Exchange® program, which guarantees a replacement monitor within 48 hours, where service is available.  ViewSonic offers 24-hour, toll-free technical support, seven days a week.

Visitors to ViewSonic booth #436 at CEDIA 2003, at the Indianapolis Convention Center from September 5 through 7, can experience the N2700w and N2000, as well as other ViewSonic visual display products, including plasma displays, projectors and Smart Displays.  For more information or images of ViewSonic’s entire family of LCD TV products, please visit: www.viewsonic.com/lcdtv.
