New 19-Inch IBM ThinkVision Monitor Designed for New Trends in Desktop Computer Use

Feb 11, 2005

IBM today introduced its newest ThinkVision desktop monitor, the 19-inch Liquid Crystal Display (LCD), ThinkVision L190. IBM's unique ThinkVantage design and innovative features include an ultra-narrow bezel for multi-monitor environments, fast response time and one of the widest ranges of tilt in its class. Answering industry demand for a more flexible, intuitive and easy-to-use monitor, the sleek L190 flat panel monitor is competitively priced and suitable for any business application.

An ultra narrow 15-millimeter monitor bezel on the new ThinkVision L190 minimizes the distances between screen images in a multiple monitor configuration. Multi-monitoring can help improve productivity and reduce errors for business professionals who need to work on multiple applications or tasks at once.

The ThinkVision L190 also features a fast, 12-millisecond pixel response time allowing for smooth text scrolling and video streaming. A fast pixel response helps eliminate "ghosting" and distortion often seen on LCD monitors with slower response times. Additionally, the L190 offers a brightness of 250 cd/m(2), or candelas per meter squared, a measurement of light properties radiating from a 1-meter-square surface; a 500:1 contrast ratio; and automatic scaling of resolutions less than 1280 x 1024.

"Businesses are beginning to move towards larger screens as price points fall," said Bob Galush, vice president of product marketing, Personal Computing Division. "Customers not only want bigger monitors, they also want more flexibility in viewing positions and the performance that graphics applications demand. This monitor delivers just that."

Other features of the L190 include convenient direct access buttons for brightness and Automatic Image setup for quick optimal display configuration. A carrying handle built into the back of the monitor offers users easy portability for moving the monitor from office to office, or for easier attachment to mounting solutions in multi-monitor environments.

Pricing and Availability
The IBM ThinkVision L190 monitor is available through www.ibm.com. IBM ThinkVision monitors are also available through select business partners. The ThinkVision L190 is priced at $499. More information about IBM ThinkVision monitors, ThinkPad notebooks, and ThinkCentre desktops is available at www.ibm.com/think.
