Asus multimedia monitor

Asus multimedia monitor
We’ve already talked about convergence in gadgets where mobile phones increasingly are coming with high resolution cameras, MP3 players and even with an astonishing 8 GB of internal memory.

Now it seems the monitor manufacturers want a piece of the action too. The new Asus PG1191 19 inch monitor comes packed full of extras you wouldn’t expect to see in a conventional monitor.

The 19” LCD screen comes with a 1024×768 resolution and 800:1 contrast ratio, as well as a standard DVI input, but that’s where “standard” ends.

To enable you to watch films, videos and play 3D games without ghosting, Asus have added a so-called TraceFree technology, boosting the response time to 2ms apparently producing a smooth, video-like quality. There’s also some “intelligence” built in the monitor, which can somehow detect what’s being shown on the screen and optimise the display mode, choosing from 5 different modes.

Incorporated into the monitor are:

• a USB 2.0 hub with three ports

• a 1.8 Mega Pixels web camera

• an integrated 2.1 speaker system (two 10-Watt speakers and 15-Watt super bass system)

• ports for speakers and microphone

I don’t know why they didn’t go all the way and feature a built-in microphone, but maybe sound quality was a concern.

But who cares, it’s a cool system and I want one! There are no details on pricing though; so I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
