ASUS India Introduces 20-Inch Widescreen Monitor

ASUSTeK Computer has introduced the 20-inch, widescreen ASUS PW201, which comes with a built in 1.3M-pixel webcam to deliver high-resolution video conferencing right out of the box. Its innovative pivot neck design further enables both vertical and horizontal viewing angles for optimized viewing comfort during different visual applications.

With the 1.3M-pixel, high-resolution webcam built in and the exclusive LifeFrame software bundle, the PW201 is not just a display, but a right-out-of-the-box video conferencing solution as well. Rich video input and USB 2.0 support turn the all-new monitor into the ideal visual solution for business and entertainment. The PW201's Color Shine glare-type panel and wide view angle, delivers crystal clear images for movies and video conferences.

The PW201 offers both vertical and horizontal viewing angles through the innovative pivot neck design. Whether it's surfing the Internet, using spreadsheets, viewing different photos or editing 3D graphics, it provides the most comfortable viewing position for any situations.

'Splendid' Video Intelligence Technology evaluates each pixel in every frame and adjusts them in smaller regions without affecting the whole picture. Colors, brightness, contrast and sharpness in each region are dynamically optimized according to conditions most favorable to the human eye. It offers five modes (Standard, Scenery, Game, Night View and Theater) and three skin tones (Natural, Reddish and Yellowish) to satisfy the specific needs in various graphics functions. Watching videos with computers and LCD monitors are now as good as on the best TVs.

OnScreen Display and Touch Sensor Buttons are two features aimed to enable quick application activation. Tune image color, brightness and contrast, adjust speaker volume, and select the special Splendid modes by using the Touch Sensor Hot Keys and user-friendly OnScreen Display. No need to interrupt current applications to adjust video quality.
