BenQ has announced the availability of what it claims is the industry’s first desktop LCD to use a 16:9 aspect ratio. The new model, the E2200HDA, will fit widescreen HD content without the black bars that most current commercial displays have.
The display measures 21.5 inches diagonally, and can playback full 1080p content (1920×1080) from a variety of sources “without losing any detail.”
Other specifications include a very high 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and automatic color adjustment. The display has a relatively fast 5ms pixel response time and will have built in speakers. There was no exact word on what inputs would be available on the display but rest assured there will be a couple of HDMI and DVI.
BenQ also added that there would be more E series displays coming with 16:9 aspect ratio including a 24 inch monitor with 2ms pixel response time.
Shipments will begin in July but there was no word on pricing or availability.
