Sony LCDs with Xbrite
today launched two new flat panel computer displays featuring its new high-brightness Xbrite technology. The SDM-HS74P and SDM-HS94P, with 17-inch and 19-inch viewable image sizes respectively, feature a special LCD panel that allows the displays to deliver superior brightness and enhanced contrast even when placed in a sunlit room. They also feature Sony's ErgoBright technology, allowing users to adjust brightness settings in one touch, with minimal loss of contrast or color fidelity.
The HS74P has a 500:1 contrast ratio and the HS94P has a 450:1 contrast ratio. Both models also come equipped with digital and analog inputs for simultaneous connectivity to multiple PCs. They are available in black and silver and feature Sony's popular modern frame design that appears to float in the air due to a softly curved metallic base that lifts the panel from the desktop. Additionally, they feature flexible viewing angles that tilt to several different positions, up to 20 degrees. They will ship in July for $600 (HS74P) and $850 (HS94P).
