Sony Electronics today introduced a 20-inch PC/TV display that integrates computing and home entertainment applications, creating an all-in-one solution for viewing a variety of multimedia content - from a PC and a TV - on one high-definition widescreen display.

With a 16:9 aspect ratio and 1680 x 1050 screen resolution, the new MFM-HT205 model follows the prior release of the 17-inch MFM-HT75 and 19-inch MFM-HT95 PC/TV displays. All HT-series LCD PC/TV displays include built-in NTSC television tuners and feature the ability to watch TV or DVDs in full widescreen mode, picture-in-picture or picture-and-picture formats while multitasking with desktop PC applications.

The MFM-HT205 display also features Sony's wall-mountable "Rising Design." It is equipped with a variety of connectivity options, including S-video, component, composite, HD-15 and DVI-HDCP inputs.

"The HT Series embraces the shift toward converged TV and PC functionalities," said Robert Stevens, product marketing manager for display solutions at Sony Electronics. "The new HT205 model is ideal for home offices, hotels, dorm rooms or professional settings that require both television and PC viewing."

All HT-series displays feature Sony's exclusive XBRITE LCD technology and ErgoBright technology for rich colors, sharp contrast, crisp graphics and easy, one-touch image adjustment for PC, gaming or movie viewing.

Ideal for high-definition video viewing and gaming applications, HT-series displays feature quick response times of six milliseconds; high brightness (470cd/m2); contrast ratio of up to 1600:1; excellent viewing angles (170°/170°); and a sound package including two 3-watt stereo speakers, a 5-watt subwoofer and SRS Labs' WOW 3D audio technology. The displays are Mac and PC compatible.
