Envision today took a different approach to its normally minimal displays by adding both the 19-inch G917w1 and 22-inch G2219w1 to its roster of Professional Series LCDs. Instead of a matte finish, the new screens are given a glossy black shell that fits more neatly alongside more stylized desktop PCs or as a miniature home theater when detached and mounted on a wall with a VESA attachment. Both also support HDCP encryption on their DVI ports to guarantee playback of certain protected HD videos when a computer's video card supports the secure video path.
Envision has launched a new widescreen monitor in its Professional Series, the E218c1. The 22-inch LCD is unique in that it not only incorporates embedded speakers, but also a 1.3-megapixel webcam, and an internal microphone with echo cancellation. These features are intended for businesses looking low-cost conferencing options; performance of the screen itself remains fairly high however, with a 5ms response time, and an above-average contrast ratio of 700:1.
