ViewSonic TD2240 Next-Gen Display Senses 10-Point Touch

By - Source: ViewSonic | B 5 comments

ViewSonic has a new touch panel with an interesting stand.

ViewSonic revealed on Wednesday a new 10-point multi-touch 22-inch display with an ergonomic design, the TD2240. The display features an interesting dual-hinge stand that allows it to lay completely flat like a tablet so that multiple users can interact with the contents on the screen. This display is available now in North America for $489.99 USD.

"Today's consumers are increasingly mobile-savvy and demand the same touch experience of their mobile devices on the desktop," said Kenneth Mau, Product Marketing Manager, ViewSonic. "The TD2240 delivers an industry-leading touch experience with its intuitive touch technology and full feature set."

The specs show that the display has a resolution of 1920 x 1080, a typical contrast ratio of 3000:1, 178 degree viewing angles, and a typical response time of 25 ms. As for the I/O aspect, the panel provides a VGA port, HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort, audio in, earphone out, and four USB 3.0 ports, one of which connects to the PC for touch.

ViewSonic's new display is also equipped with a scratch-resistant surface, SuperClear technology for "vivid" colors, and two 2-watt speakers. The HDMI port is also MHL compliant, meaning that a connected MHL-capable device will receive a charge while connected to the screen and displaying content.

"Whether consumers are looking for a rich, intuitive interface or commercial environments requiring seamless integration with Windows systems, this display is equipped to meet the consumer demand for touch technology beyond mobile devices," Mau adds.

To purchase the new display, head here. Looking for something larger? ViewSonic's 10-point touch family includes the 23-inch TD2340 for $619.99, the 27-inch TD2740 for $849.99, and the 32-inch TD3240 for a meaty $3,059.99. ViewSonic also has several dual-point touch displays as well.

    I don't care how interesting it's stand is this thing is overpriced for a 1080p monitor and 25ms response time whether it's in regard to input or display is slow. Both for displays and input devices you want response times in the 2ms-10ms range in general because beyond that the lag becomes perceptibly noticeable as if your trying to move something from a far distance via telekinesis.

    I'm sure they'll sell a ton of these screens less the stand and frame for the commercial market (info screens, wedding gift registry machines, etc) but i don't see them making inroads on the consumer market at this price.
