6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Though the shortage of inexpensive flat panels may be keeping Apple Computer from producing enough new iMacs to meet demand, that hasn't stopped them from unveiling their latest display at Macworld Expo Tokyo. Officially dubbed the Apple Cinema HD Display, it features a 23-inch flat panel that can handle resolutions up to 1920x1200.
Here's a description from Apple's press release:
Apple's Cinema HD Display features an active-matrix, liquid crystal display that incorporates a pure digital interface to deliver superior image quality. Unlike many other flat panels using an analog interface, the Cinema HD Display delivers distortion-free images from edge-to-edge that never need adjusting. At less than two inches thick, the wide format design of the Cinema HD Display (16:10 aspect ratio) allows users to easily view a full 11-inch by 17-inch two-page spread or a complex illustration, making it the ultimate display for the creative or technical professional. Like its other flat panels, the HD Display sports an ADC connector as well as two self-powered USB ports. Availablity is currently set for April, with a hefty price tag of $3,499.
The Cinema HD Display delivers brilliant color performance with support of 16.7 million colors and offers a 160 degree viewing angle for great color uniformity edge-to-edge. The Cinema HD Display is well integrated with ColorSync(R), Apple's industry-standard software for managing color on computer displays, scanners and printers. ColorSync automatically generates a profile for the Cinema HD Display that allows it to be used in demanding color applications.
Gamers chomping at the bit to drive one of these displays with an ATI Radeon 8500 or nVidia GeForce4 Ti can find the display's specs at Apple's web site.
