AG Neovo has developed a 15-inch TFT LCD monitor with VGA, video Inputs, and a specially formulated screen that has a multi-layered glass panel which is scratch-proof, can be cleaned easily and has low reflection.
The Neovo S-15V is a 15-inch XGA TFT LCD flat panel monitor featuring a Paradise Smart ASIC SD1010 chipset and 307.2mm x 230.4mm viewing area. The image resolution provides 1024(RGB) x 768 pixels, a 0.30mm x 0.30mm pixel pitch and 4:3 aspect ratio. The Neovo S-15V's 18-bit interface features up to 262,144 colours and provides a contrast ratio of 200:1. The screen features a viewing angle of 160/160 degrees and a response time of approximately 25mps. The Neovo S-15V is ideally suited to a resolution of 1024 x 768 at 60Hz, although it can also run at a maximum of 1024x768 at 75Hz.
The screen offers a 12V external power adaptor fully compliant with EPA, NUTEK, and VESA DPMS. In order to protect the softer TFT LCD surface from dust and scratches, the Neovo S-15V also features a glass filter in front of the LCD panel, with a 95 per cent transmission rate. The modular design of this LCD monitor allows for field removal and replacement of the glass panel when adding a touch screen option or repair.
The model is also desktop or wall-mountable, with the foldable base providing a wealth of installation options for desktop convenience and your optimum viewing comfort.
The Neovo S-15V retails at $1995 and is currently available in Australia via Camcom International.
