V22 Verfino LCD monitor
Display maker AOC has unveiled a new LCD monitor, the V22 Verfino. The screen measures 22 inches, and is a part of the company's Gamer Certified line. Accordingly the monitor is equipped with high-end features, such as HDMI input, LED backlighting, a 100,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and a response time of only 2ms. Conventional contrast and response figures range closer to 2,000-3,000:1 and 4-6ms.
Limitations of the monitor include a brightness of 280cd/m2, and a maximum resolution of 1680x1050. It also excludes any other HD-ready video inputs beyond HDMI, the only other connection type being analog RGB. No prices have been announced, but the display should ship sometime in early 2009.
