Enjoy Crisp Acoustic Sounds

The PG221 has built-in 2.1 channel stereo speakers that include 10W satellite
speakers and a military-styled 15W subwoofer tank-box at the rear. To further
expand this audio experience, the ASUS PG221 is also able to support a 6.1-CH
surround sound system with SRS TruSurround XT™ Technology – a technology usually
adopted by LCD TVs. The PG221 thus allows users to fully experience powerful
sound effects without setting up additional speakers to help save space and
bring home-theater enjoyment to the user.

Rich Multimedia Support

Like PW201 and PG191, the PG221 also comes with a built-in 1.3 mega-pixel webcam
and earphone/ microphone jacks to support face-to-face communications. Besides
connecting with the personal computer, this LCD monitor is able to transform
into a multimedia display center. This is due to the fact that it supports
multiple audio and video inputs that include VGA, DVI, Composite A/V, S-Video
and Component (YPbPr, up to 1080i/p) inputs and USB2.0 ports, to be
interoperable with all kind of consumer electronics such as HD DVD players,
video games consoles, set top boxes, MP3/CD player, karaoke boxes, digital
cameras, camcorders, etc. Users can get more fun from the HD ready PG221 than
what they can imagine.

Great Comfort for Eyes

The ASUS PG221 presents a 22-inch wide screen which adopts a Color Shine
glare-type panel to deliver crystal clear images and a cinema-like visual
experience. The SPLENDID™ Video Intelligence Technology delivers optimized video
performance with intelligent color, brightness, contrast and sharpness
corrections – enabling users to enjoy excellent image quality during games. The
PG221 also adopts Trace Free Technology to deliver 2ms (gray to gray) quick
response times for smoother video display without ghosting while playing frame
intensive games; while ASCR (ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio) Technology is set to
boost a 2000:1 high contrast ratio to deliver sharper and brighter images. The
PG221 has passed the WHQL tests and is certified for Windows Vista™ Premium
version to bring users a more plentiful graphic experience.

Marvelous Appearance Matters

Rife with gaming concepts in its designs, the black and silver PG221 comes with
a sleek aluminum alloy neck, diamond-cut base and a black-glared front frame.
The display contour is based on stealth bombers, and the subwoofer box at the
back takes on the shape of a tank cannon. Besides this, the PG221 comes with
innovative Light-in-Motion scenario lighting effects, which derive from the
magic weapon “light sabres” in Star Wars. Each light color (red/ green/ orange/
pink/ blue) stands for a sound preset mode (fighting game/ strategic game/
music/ theater/ standard) selected; the ambience while using the ASUS PG221 will
be greatly enhanced.

Revolutionary LED Sensor Control

Moreover, an invisible LED Sensor Control design has been pioneered in ASUS
LCD monitors since the amazing PW191. It allows the user to experience
cutting-edge technology via Scenario Hotkeys, Adjustment Scroll Bar and
exclusive interactive stereo melodies that create a complete a whole new user
interface. The exclusive Stereo Surround Melodies include 4 types of thematic
melodies for powering on/off, and 6 types of interactive melodies for key
controls.
