LG 22-inch LCD
Electronics giant LG today released its first 22-inch widescreen display, the L226WT. The screen incorporates HDCP encryption support to allow full-quality playback of certain Blu-Ray and HD DVD movies. LG adds that the 1680x1050 display is part of the new generation of LCDs and has an exceptionally high 3,000:1 contrast ratio as well as a quick 5ms (gray-to-gray) response time well-suited to games and videos. Input is provided through a single DVI-D port. The L226WT is compatible with Macs and is one of the first displays to be officially certified for Windows Vista, the company says. It ships today in Korea and will be available in North America soon for a currently unknown price.
