Vidikron has just introduced three new high performance 16:9 Plasma Display Monitors. According to Vidikron the new PlasmaView™ Series provides state-of-the-art performance in popular-sized models for tremendous picture quality, flexibility and value.

With native resolutions of 852x480 for the VP-42 and 1366x768 for the VP-50 and VP-60, all three models feature HDTV capability (with outboard tuner/decoder, D-VHS or satellite receiver). The PlasmaView Series’ engineering innovations provide brightness, contrast and black level performance with video processing.

The VP-42, VP-50, and VP-60, share Vidikron’s unique—Dynamic Pixel Protection™ circuitry, which helps to protect the plasma panel from stationary image burn, a persistent industry-wide problem with previous plasma monitors and TV’s.

Vidikron’s video processing with 3:2 film detection circuitry is built into all three Vidikron monitors. It provides detail and artifact-free video enhancement, enabling the new PlasmaView monitors to reproduce even standard NTSC material at near HD quality. All models feature multiple aspect ratio control including Vidikron’s IntelliWide mode, offering the ability to view standard video formats in widescreen without loss of image quality.

All three models feature, discrete IR and RS-232 controls to simplify custom installation applications, while discrete source and aspect ratio selection provide a seamless interface for automation control systems. Mounting options include a tabletop stand or wall mounting kit. With a depth less than 4 inches, and sleek styling, the new PlasmaView models should appeal to a wide range of discerning viewers seeking premium quality plasma monitors.

All models are available in October and suggested retail price is $5,995 for the PlasmaView VP-42, $11,995 for the PlasmaView VP-50 and $19,995 for the PlasmaView VP-60.
