ViewSonic 1080p LCD TV
ViewSonic on Wednesday announced the release of its VT2230 LCD TV, which offers 16:9 resolutions up to 1080p, on a panel measuring 22 inches. The display is meant for use in locations where a larger set would not physically fit, such as kitchens, dens or small bedrooms. The TV achieves a 5ms response time, with 300cd/m2 brightness.
Other specs include a 8,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio (1,000:1 static), and integrated tuners for ATSC, NTSC and QAM broadcasts. A single HDMI connection is provided, but also present are VGA, component, S-Video and composite inputs. The VT2230 is currently selling for $349.
