TAIPEI, TAIWAN, August 8, 2008 – With 16:9 aspect ratio fast becoming the new global standard among panel manufacturers, BenQ continues to distinguish its brand from the competition with innovation and industry-leading technologies that today include "ultra-green" 16:9 720p models for reduced environmental impact and enhanced cost-performance. The company's latest E900HD and G900HD feature popular 16:9 format for superior display of HD content as well as a unique 2-lamp design that still emits the bright 300 nits of 4-lamp models, all while saving substantial energy and greatly lessening carbon dioxide and mercury emissions. These two new models complement BenQ's HD 16:9 LCD Series released earlier this month, and transplant HD visual enjoyment from living room to desktop gaming, work, and video watching.
Greener is Simply Better
The glossy black E900HD and silver, black G900HD not only resonate BenQ's leadership in visual display with the latest 16:9 format and smart user essentials, but also reflect BenQ's dedication to environmental responsibility.
"BenQ has always been dedicated to 'Bringing Enjoyment 'N' Quality to Life'"” said Peter Chen, General Manager of BenQ Technology Product Center. "And with these new models, we demonstrate how that enjoyment extends far beyond hardware and technology, but to the natural world as well. With our new low-energy, low-emission models, we hope to set the trend not only for 16:9 format, but social and environmental responsibility. BenQ remains on the leading edge of the 16:9 format trend by launching the world’s first 21.5" Full HD model earlier this month, and now by setting the pace for greener 16:9 displays."
BenQ's 2-lamp design features several benefits over conventional 4-lamp displays. The 18.5" models still maintain a 300-nit brightness and 10,000:1 DCR (dynamic contrast ratio), but use only 30W total power. Emissions of CO2 are drastically decreased by 25% while that of mercury is cut 50%.
Expanding HD Enjoyment Everywhere
Among the smaller offerings of BenQ's new 16:9 Full HD/HD Series, the new E and G 18.5" models nonetheless unify today's digital lifestyle enjoyment by expanding HD viewing application from limited living room use to boundless possibilities in the study, office, classroom, bedroom, kitchen, and more. All multimedia, work and gaming applications are beautifully displayed via a smooth 5ms response time, 720p high definition, and Senseye™+photo, a proprietary digital image enhancement engine that fine-tunes picture quality per application with five preset modes – Standard, Dynamic, Photo, Movie and sRGB. Image quality is also rendered flawless with an ultra-high 10,000:1 DCR that intensifies blacks to reveal subtle dark details in superb definition. Both models feature convenient D-Sub input and DVI-D with HDCP. The E900HD further features headphone jack and integrated speakers. Both models are Vista Premium certified.
Available August in China, and select countries in Asia Pacific, Europe and Latin America.
