Once again, this year's displays and monitors have shown vast improvements in image quality, while also offering other features suitable for a wide variety of working environments. Today's projectors, as well, are designed to give users better-looking presentations of all types. To help keep you up-to-date, we've put together a list of the newest offerings, grouped alphabetically by manufacturer. Keep watching this space in the coming year as further improvements in flat-panel manufacturing and projection technologies out-shine even the impressive array of products now available. We'll be here to tell you all about it as it happens--you could say we'll be monitoring the situation...

Massachusetts-based Analog Devices has created an integrated 205 MHz analog interface chip for capturing RGB analog graphics signals from computers and converting them to digital data for display on flat-panel LCD monitors and projectors. The 205 MHz encode rate of the AD9888 data converter, combined with its full-power bandwidth of 500 MHz, supports a wide range of resolutions from HDTV and digital TV formats to the next generation UXGA specification, 1600x1200 at 75 MHz. Three 8-bit 205 MSPS ADCs are combined with an on-chip PLL that generates a pixel clock from HSync. Also included is mid-scale clamping for HDTV and digital TV (YUV) signals, programmable gain and offset controls, integrated sync processing for composite sync and SOG applications, and a sync-detect function for hot-plugging.

Applied Scientific Instrumentation, Inc. offers a number of video monitors, including high resolution black-and-white and LCD units that take up very little space. ASI's LCD units are designed with active-matrix Thin Film Transistor Liquid Crystal Display technology (TFT-LCD) and are offered in a number of sizes and resolutions. The LCD 6.4, for instance, provides a high-resolution color image made with 224,640 pixels of display. The screen is backlit by a long-lifetime Cold Cathode Filament Tube (CCFT), allowing for sharp images--even in daylight.
