BenQ FP241W with HDMI
BenQ today released its new FP241W display, the first 24-inch LCD to offer direct HDMI input, according to the company. In addition to connectors for DVI and VGA for computers as well as component, RCA, and S-video for analog signals, the FP241W includes a single HDMI port for transmitting video from Blu-Ray and HD DVD players, the PlayStation 3, and other HDMI-equipped media devices that may require HDCP encryption to display at their full 1920x1200 resolution. The screen itself is ideal for fast-motion games and movies, BenQ adds, as the panel provides a 6ms gray-to-gray pixel response time. The company's proprietary Senseye image compensation is also said to dynamically improve the contrast, color, and sharpness of the final picture. BenQ is shipping the FP241W in November for $1099.
