Toshiba launches 3840x2400 22-inch LCD

updated 08:30 am EDT, Fri November 2, 2007


Toshiba's Solutions division today unveiled one of the few truly high-resolution computer LCDs available. The unnamed screen measures 22 inches diagonally but is capable of a 3840x2400 resolution -- four times as sharp as typically larger 1920x1200 displays and even sharper than the 1680x1050 images often generated by LCDs at the same size. This gives it a 200DPI density closer to that of photo paper with a full 16.7 million colors, Toshiba says. Though not the first display to achieve the feat as it follows an obsolete IBM display, the screen makes fewer sacrifices by maintaining a 235cd/m2 brightness level and a 300:1 contrast ratio.

Despite measuring several inches smaller than 30-inch displays, the LCD requires a video card with a dual-link DVI connector to output images at full resolution; Toshiba supplies a PCI video card of its own for Windows XP users who lack the necessary hardware, though the display should work with any operating system. The display will demand a premium price in Japan equal to $18,155 after tax when it goes on sale in spring 2008. The video card has not been specified but should cost $2,732 at the same time.
