Planar Systems has unveiled the latest in its PX line of high-end LCD monitors. Featuring superior visual performance, easy-to-use ergonomic designs, sleek bezels, and an industry-leading warranty, the new 17in., 19in., 21in., and 23in. flat-panel LCD monitors are designed to help businesses improve their workers' productivity.

Corporate users working in video editing, computer-assisted design, manufacturing (CAD/CAM), and finance can take advantage of large screen sizes and multiple input options to work more efficiently with the PX212M and the widescreen HDTV-compatible PX2320MW. In addition, the PX1910M and PX1710M are ideal LCD monitors for users looking for peak performance when viewing spreadsheets, documents, and presentations, as well as fast-motion video.

“Corporations are continuously looking for ways to increase worker productivity, historically recognizing that one way to do this is by standardizing on the use of larger, flat-panel LCD monitors, allowing workers to multitask more easily,” says Ross Young, president of DisplaySearch, a flat-panel display market research and consulting firm.

“Now that bigger displays have become more affordable in recent quarters, we are seeing strong growth across all of these larger size categories in the LCD monitor market. Particularly strong growth is evident in the 17in. and 19in. categories. The 17in. category grew 39.6 percent worldwide from Q3’04 to Q4’04, while 19in. LCD monitors grew the most at 47.1 percent worldwide in that same period.”

The PX 19in., 21in., and 23in. monitors feature Planar’s new RapidVideo accelerator for superb full-motion video performance. With RapidVideo technology, the Planar PX2320MW is up to five times faster than other 23in. LCD monitors on the market. In addition, all of the PX monitors have a QuadStand base for resistance-free height, tilt, swivel, and pivot adjustments. Having this flexibility allows users to place their flat-panel LCD monitor in the optimal position for reduced neck pain and eyestrain from long hours of computer use.

Integration of stereo speakers into the stand minimizes bezel size, resulting in a sleek form factor and efficient use of space. A thin bezel also enables office workers to place multiple LCD monitors side by side in either portrait or landscape configuration for uninterrupted viewing of numerous applications in financial services, engineering, publishing, and other office environments. For example, users can take text from an email displayed on one LCD monitor and insert it into a document displayed on a second LCD monitor without toggling between windows, thereby increasing productivity and saving time.

“Planar continues to lead the flat-panel LCD monitor market in providing businesspeople with the best combination of features, design, warranty, and service to meet their needs,” says Mark Ceciliani, vice president and general manager of the commercial business unit at Planar. “Our next-generation PX line builds on that heritage as the most technologically sophisticated, feature-rich lineup of LCD monitors we have ever made, and we continue to set the standard for high-performance LCD monitors ideal for enterprise users.”
