Formac Electronic Inc., a leading manufacturer of performance enhancing peripherals and advanced visualization solutions, today announced its new Gallery Platinum LCD with 19.0" or 20.1" viewable screen.

Taking advantage of the latest leap in TFT technology, the new Gallery 1900 delivers industry-leading performance for pixel response time (8ms gray-to-gray), contrast ratio (800:1) and brightness (300 cd/m2). The improved specifications are reflected in the Gallery's superior visual performance, validated by multiple press awards in Europe where the display was announced last week.

For a limited time Formac offers a direct pre-order discount of $40, lowering the price of the 19" LCD to $459, and the 20" LCD to $659.

"Since its first introduction in 2001 the Gallery line has been the display of choice for professionals working in color critical applications," said Robert Altmann, Director of Business Development at Formac Inc. "The staggering boost in pixel response, combined with a truly digital video controller, extends the Gallery's playground to professional video and animation applications."

In addition to its impressive visual performance, the new Gallery 1900 is a true multi-talent. Featuring a SXGA resolution (1,280 by 1,024) the Gallery 1900 displays the identical digital information of a 17" LCD, but on a screen real estate that is comparable to a 20" wide-screen LCD. The 25% bigger picture benefits text intensive applications such as web-browsing, spreadsheets, and word processing, but also is of advantage when working with highly detailed graphics. The industry-leading pixel response time of 8ms (gray-to-gray) guarantees smooth full-motion digital video and high-speed gaming.

Besides its appeal to mainstream applications, the new Gallery Platinum line primarily meets critical requirements of creative professionals. Formac's proprietary ColorProof VA TFT with AllRound conical viewing technology produce perfect color purity and color information at off-axis angles, required for accurate color calibration. Like its predecessors the new Gallery line remains a reliable member in the color-managed process of many of the worlds leading prepress, desktop publishing, and digital imaging businesses.

The new Gallery line comes in an elegant Platinum color, perfectly matching the metallic look of Apples Mac mini and G5 series. The display includes 2 USB ports on the backside for connection of mouse and keyboard. Formacs Gallery line is Mac and PC compatible and can be connected via DVI connector.
