It seems that I-O Data is not going to sit idly by while its rivals reveal new 3D panels, so it went ahead and announced that it, too, will bring a new 3D display out by December.
3D displays operate on the principle that the panel can produce two sets of images at the same time.
Each set of images is aimed at one of the viewer's eyes and they are both synchronized by appropriate 3D glasses, though said eyewear is not exactly seen as the forte of 3D.
Now, while still confined to using 3D glasses, users have a new display to consider when looking for a 3D monitor.
The product in question was developed by I-O Data and carries the name of LCD-3D231XBR.
It has a screen size of 23 inches and, obviously, a panel with a refresh rate of 120 Hz, so that there may be two set of 60 Hz images at once.
The contrast ratio is of 1,000:1, while the native resolution is, as one might expect, 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, Full High-Definition (Full HD) as it were.
There is also a brightness of 300 cd/m2, plus a fairly impressive response time of 3ms, and this comes in addition to the support for NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology.
What's more, the newcomer integrated a pair of 1.5W speakers, so as to cover both visual and audio aspects of multimedia and gaming experiences. A 3.5mm audio jack is also present.
Finally, connectivity to a wide variety of video cards is accomplished via D-Sub, DVI and HDMI connectors.
Other specifications include a black bezel and the ECO function, which saver energy, thus delivering even the environment-friendliness factor.
The company has already added the newcomer to its website
in Japan and has given it a price of 44,800 Yen, which is the equivalent of roughly $536.
