Iiyama Introduces Four New 17-inch 5:4 Touchscreen Monitors

Iiyama introduced four new 17-inch monitors with the 5:4 aspect ratio, featuring native resolutions of 1280 x 1024. The company is going after the kiosk markets with these displays. Among the models launched are the ProLite T1731SR-2 (and its white variant), the ProLite T1731SAW-2, and the ProLite T1732MSC-B1X (pictured in that order). The ProLite T1731SR-2 offers single-point resistive touch, the ProLite T1731SAW-2 also offers single-touch, but using the ultrasonic method, so your fingers needn't physically push against the panel (good hygiene), and the ProLite T1732MSC-B1X offers 10-point capacitive multi-touch. All four feature 1,000:1 static contrast ratio, 80°/85° (V/H) viewing angles, DVI and D-Sub inputs, 2W stereo speakers, and dimensions of 387 mm x 201 mm x 342 mm (WxDxH).

TN-film Panel Based Ultra HD Monitors Could Sell for Cheap by Mid-2014

An NPD DisplaySearch boldly claiming that the industry will ship as many as 2 million Ultra HD (3840 x 2160-pixel) monitors by the end of 2014, is beginning to sound a little more plausible, with display makers pushing for "affordable" Ultra HD monitors in the 28-inch size segment, by mid-2014. By these, we're not referring to cheap, borderline gray market monitors from lesser known Korean manufacturers; but display majors from the same country, such as Samsung and LG. According to Hardware.info, which recently published a review of the Samsung LU28D590D, a 28-inch monitor based on a cheap TN-film panel by Chimei (CMO), that offers Ultra HD resolution; prices of the display could be as low as 600€ or £500, by mid-2014. So if you're planning to ditch the full HD (1920 x 1080) or WUXGA (1920 x 1200) monitor you've been holding on to for the past 5 or so years, wait just a little longer.

AU Optronics Working on Affordable Ultra HD Monitors

Display panel maker AU Optronics, which supplies LCD panels to major monitor and TV manufacturers, is reportedly working on bringing Ultra HD (3840 x 2160 pixels) panels into the mainstream, and promises "affordable" 27-inch and 32-inch monitors beaming those many pixels by Q1 or Q2, 2014. AU Optronics, or AUO as it's known in the industry, supplies LCD panels to a variety of monitor manufacturers, including ASUS, BenQ, Philips, and even Samsung (which also makes its own high-end panels). Among the two panels AUO is working on, one offers sRGB gamut with Adobe RGB gamut coverage; both will be able to reproduce 10-bit with dithering. Given that these panels will be intended for monitors, there will be two major requirements - at least 60 Hz of refresh rate, and as low response time as possible.

LG Introduces Two New 21:9 Monitors

It looks like LG doesn't see the new 21:9 "ultra-widescreen" aspect-ratio as something that caters to a niche, and is bent on making it the next mainstream resolution. The company rolled out its second and third 29-inch ultra-widescreen monitors, the 29EA73-P, and 29EB73-P; pictured in that order below. Both are 29-inchers, offering a native resolution of 2560 x 1080 pixels. Both feature a plethora of inputs, including dual-link DVI, DisplayPort, a pair of HDMI ports (including an MHL). Both offer USB 3.0 hubs, 7W stereo speakers, and audio out; but differ in design, and hence, dimensions. The 29EA73-P measures 699.7 x 387.0 x 197.2 mm, weighing 5.9 kg; while the 29EB73-P measures 699.7 x 395.3 x 225.0 mm, weighing 6.9 kg. While LG didn't announce pricing, the 29EB73-P is expected to be a tiny bit pricier among the two; while both could be cheaper than the 29EA93 series.

EIZO Releases 21" And 19" Square Monitors With LED Backlights

EIZO Corporation today announced the release of one 21.3-inch and two 19-inch square monitors. The 21.3-inch monitor is the FlexScan S2133 and the 19-inch monitors are the FlexScan S1923 and FlexScan S1903. All three monitors come with LED backlights and other energy-saving features making them ideal for large and small offices that require a traditional square design. With its large screen size, the FlexScan S2133 is also suitable for control rooms and CAD (computer-aided design).

All three monitors have LED backlights for low power consumption of 16 watts or less during typical operation and just 0.5 watts in power save mode. They are also easy on the eyes. An ambient brightness sensor called Auto EcoView and a preset mode called Paper mode lower the monitors' brightness and color temperature respectively to reduce the blue light output which can cause eye fatigue.

IDC Lowers Forecast Growth for PC Monitors While Average Screen Size Increases

Continued decline in demand for PC desktops has led International Data Corporation (IDC) to lower its estimate of PC monitors shipped in the first quarter of 2013 (1Q13) to 33.8 million units, down from its previous forecast of 34.7 million units for the quarter. In the latest update of the Worldwide Quarterly PC Monitor Tracker, IDC also lowered its total shipment forecast for 2013 from 140.1 million units to 134.4 million units, which will represent a 9.9% year-on-year decline. By 2017, worldwide shipments are expected to drop further to 113.6 million units.

"The continued decline in PC desktops is bringing about changes in strategy and product focus in the PC monitor market," said Jennifer Song, Research Analyst at IDC. "With Windows 8 operating system, we expect to see more touch-based monitors although price points are a little high. Average screen size of the market is also expected to increase to 21.4" in 2017 from 20.4" in 2012."

DGM Rolls Out a Trio of IPS LED Monitors

DGM (aka Digimate) rolled out a trio of IPS LED PC monitors covering the 24-inch, 27-inch, and 30-inch categories. The best part? These aren't the usual 1080p tripe.

It features in-built stereo speakers, display inputs include DVI, HDMI, and D-Sub.

Moving on, the 27-inch IPS-2703WPH features a reinforced glass surface (we're guessing some Corning Gorilla magic at play here), 2560 x 1440-pixel resolution, 6 ms response time, and other vital-stats identical to its little sibling. Display inputs include dual-link DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort, and D-Sub. Lastly there's the pack-leading IPS-3004WPH. This 30-incher features 2560 x 1600-pixel resolution, 6 ms response time, 370 cd/m² maximum brightness, and the same connectivity as its 27-inch sibling. Internally, it features the same IPS panel used in Dell U3014, which features GB-LED backlighting. DGM didn't finalize pricing.
