AOC Vista Computer LCDs

Envision this afternoon shipped a pair of computer LCDs under its AOC label ready for protected videos. The 22-inch 212Va-1 and its 19-inch equivalent the 912Vwa-1 both have HDCP encryption support, letting them play movies from certain protected Blu-Ray or HD DVD discs without degrading the image resolution. The LCDs are also smart enough to properly display 720p and 1080i images from game consoles and movie players that work with DVI, Envision notes, and have bbeen Vista-certified.

The new screens also claim 5ms pixel response times suitable for fast-action scenes as well as 800:1 and 700:1 respective contrast ratios. The displays ship starting today at $299 for the 22-inch panel and $189 for its 19-inch equivalent.
