ViewSonic recently introduced its UltraBrite high-brightness CRT displays. The company says that its G71f+SB, E70f+SB, E90f+SB, A70f+ and A90f+ are designed for users seeking optimal viewing of graphics, games, video and TV (including HDTV), in addition to traditional computer applications.

According to the company, the new displays optimize color hue, saturation and intensity for Internet, gaming, presentation graphics and video applications by allowing users to increase brightness by three to five times that of traditional CRTs. These UltraBrite CRT displays also offer enhanced features that include a dedicated toggle button for brightness level selection, one-touch auto image adjustment, ViewSonic's PerfectFlat technology and a sleek metallic-silver-on-black design. When coupled with ViewSonic's NextVision N6 video processor, all of the new monitors should be able to display content from an HDTV source.

Offering up to 500 nits of brightness and a maximum resolution of 1280x1024, the G71f+SB is designed with an FD Trinitron CRT for good video, gaming and graphics performance. Through ViewSonic's PerfectFlat screen and UltraBrite technologies, this 17-inch (16.0 inch viewable) CRT promises to offer bright, clear images with optimal color performance. Also available in an all-black design (G71f+B), the G71f+ is currently shipping through authorized ViewSonic resellers, distributors and mail order catalogs at an estimated street price (ESP) of $199.

Featuring 300 nits of brightness and an ultra-fine horizontal dot pitch of 0.21mm the E90f+SB, E70f+SB, A70f+ and A90f+ should provide vivid, crisp images for gaming, photo, video and TV applications to education, small office/home office and consumer users.
