EVGA InterView LCD display
Motherboard and graphics card maker EVGA on Thursday announced the upcoming release of its first LCD display, the InterView 1770, which mates two 17-inch LCD panels onto a single stand. Either can be rotated 180 degrees, so the displays face in different directions. Each sports a 1440x900 resolution and can also fold together like a clamshell for stowing away. The spine stand houses a 1.3-megapixel camera, and there are three USB ports in its base. Each monitor has its own keyboard and mouse connections, though each controls what's on both screens.
EVGA sees uses for this product in business environments or in doctor's offices, where doctors can show patients their X-rays, for example. Each display has a 500:1 contrast ratio and 220 cd/m2 brightness, as well as an 8ms response time. The InterView 1770 dual display costs $650 and is available now.
