HARDWARE FIRM Viewsonic is gracing Las Vegas with three Windows 8 certified touchscreen displays and a variety of boasts.
The firm has rolled its scratch resistant 10 point TD2340, TD2740 and TD3240 display monitors onto the Las Vegas Strip along with marketing talk about their advanced ergonomics and performance.
The displays fall into the TD series and offer 10 point capacitive touch as well as what Viewsonic calls professional grade IPS panels with 1920x1080 full HD resolution and a 20,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio.
"10 Point Touch will revolutionise the way we connect with our digital world," said Erik Willey, LCD monitor and PC product marketing director at Viewsonic.
"This Windows 8 certified 40 Series is designed to deliver an optimized Windows 8 touch experience with the projected capacitive touch technology, outstanding ergonomics and versatile connectivity that ViewSonic is known for."
The three models are different sizes and the TD2340 is a 23in display, the TD2740 is 27in and the TD3240, which is aimed at the hospitality and retail market, is 32in. They cost $599, $799, and $2,499, respectively, and will go on sale starting this month.
The cheapest model, the TD2340, has a four-way stand that lets you either prop it up, as you would a normal display, or lie flat like you might a tablet. The TD3240, the most expensive unit, has an optional stand. µ
