PRNewswire: New Widescreen Monitor From Envision Peripherals Inc. Offers Built-In Camera, Microphone for Video Conferencing

FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Envision Peripherals Inc. (EPI), home to the AOC and Envision branded displays, today expanded its high performance LCD desktop monitor line with the introduction of the 22-inch Envision E218c1 slim bezel monitor featuring a built-in webcam and echo- canceling microphone. Part of the "Professional Series" of Microsoft Windows Vista Premium-certified LCD displays, the Envision E218c1 is designed to maximize desktop space and facilitate the latest personal communication over the Internet.

"The Envision E218c1 excels at everything from productivity and gaming to watching movies and connecting with family, friends and colleagues via the Internet," said Michael Lien, GM, North American Brand Sales. "It's designed for personal and business users who don't want the hassle of installing separate components to take advantage of advanced Internet communications capabilities including VoIP, video conferencing and video-enabled instant messaging."

Featuring a built-in 1.3 megapixel webcam, the E218c1 is ideal for video conferencing and video instant messaging. Whether taking snapshots, creating video or video conferencing, the adjustable height and swivel design of the display allows users to accurately line up the webcam to ensure desired subjects are within view. The E218c1's built-in microphone with echo cancellation delivers clear, feedback-free communication, making it the perfect complement for VoIP long-distance calls or webcam enabled video conferencing.

Designed to complement Microsoft's Window's Vista operating system, the new 22-inch widescreen enables users to navigate between multiple side-by-side applications and columns in tables or spreadsheets. The widescreen format takes advantage of Vista Premium's Aero Flip, eliminating the need to toggle between applications.

Equipped with the Digital Video Input w/HDCP interface -- needed to "unlock" protected HD content -- the E218c1 allows high-quality audio and video playback from the latest high-definition program sources, including HD- DVD and Blu-ray DVDs. For maximum versatility, the unit also delivers HD 720P/1080i compatibility allowing it to display digital TV programming delivered by Cable, Satellite and other Set Top Boxes equipped with DVI-HDCP.

Boasting 1680X1050 screen resolution and 700:1 contrast ratio for vivid, true-to-life image quality, the E218c1 delivers exceptional clarity for viewing fast-paced action programming or playing the latest video games thanks to its 5-millisecond response rate. Built-in stereo speakers deliver rich stereo sound to further enhance the user's experience.

The Envision E218c1 features a built-in 3-port USB hub enabling users to connect additional components such as digital cameras, flash drives, mice, and keyboards directly to the monitor for a neat, convenient plug-and-play experience.

The VESA wall-mount compliant E218c1 flat-panel display comes with a comprehensive warranty that meets the strictest safety, energy efficiency and environmental standards, including EPA ENERGY STAR(R) and ROHS (Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive).

The Envision E218c1 is available immediately through Envision distributors and channel partners at a suggested retail price of $329.99.
