ViewSonic announces new touch and UHD monitors along with zero and thin client virtualization solutions.
ViewSonic demonstrated a monitor running at 4K resolution last year at the Consumer Electronics Show, and is continuing its innovative trend by launching monitors that come with built-in Miracast connectivity this time around.
The VX2876im is a 28-inch monitor that comes with Miracast functionality. Miracast allows you to mirror your screen from your Android mobile device onto the monitor. You can stream movies or view images from your mobile device directly onto the screen. There is also a 23-inch VX2363Sml-W monitor that comes with a wired MHL connector that allows you to connect your mobile device or tablet to the monitor to view content.
In addition to these monitors, ViewSonic has launched the TD2430ml touch-enabled display that comes with 10-point multitouch and a scratch-resistant coating. The monitor works on both Windows and Linux machines, although its touchscreen nature means that it is more suited for users on Windows 8 and above. The TD2430ml will be available sometime in Q2 2014, and will cost $429.
ViewSonic hasn’t forgotten the 4K segment, and has launched a 28-inch UHD monitor that costs $999. The VX2880ml comes with a screen resolution of 3840 x 2160, 2ms response, DisplayPort, MHL, HDMI, DVI and VGA connectivity.
ViewSonic also announced new zero and thin client virtualisation solutions. The SC-Z56 is a zero client solution that is certified for VMware Horizon View, and can simultaneously drive four full-HD screens. The SD-T225 and SD-T245 are thin client offerings that come with built-in LED screens, work with all major remote networking protocols and come with a DVI-out for connecting to another monitor. These virtualization offerings will launch in June, with the SC-Z56 set to retail for $599, and the SD-T225 and SD-T245 costing $375 and $419.
