Bosch Adds Two New Economical, High-Resolution Flat-Panel Monitors

At 450 TV lines of resolution, the MON150CL monitor is a high-resolution liquid crystal display (LCD) video monitor. The MON170CL increases the monitor size to 17 inches, with a resolution of 500 TV lines. These color monitors are the top choice for large-screen, space-limited applications due to their slim LCD panel width - the MON150CL is only 2.5 inches wide and the MON170CL is a mere 1.9 inches wide.

The MON150CL offers a 15-inch color thin film transistor (TFT) active matrix 1024 x 768 pixel LCD panel, while the MON170CL has a 17-inch color (TFT) active matrix 1280 x 1024 pixel LCD panel. The LCD design uses long-life fluorescent backlights to maintain the brightness level over time, eliminating the brightness degradation associated with aging CRT-type monitors. These Bosch monitors also provide sharp displays - without the annoying flicker of CRT monitors - so customers can use the monitors longer with little or no eyestrain.

Their versatile design allows the monitors to automatically accept NTSC and PAL signal formats, and power supply voltages from 100 to 240 VAC. The units can be viewed in a variety of positions because of their wide range of viewing angles: 120 deg. horizontal and 100 deg. vertical for the MON150CL and 140 deg. horizontal and 130 deg. vertical for the MON170CL.

The entire Bosch flat-panel LCD monitor line - including high-performance 15-inch, 17-inch, and 20-inch models - is available through Bosch sales representatives, who can be found by calling 866-CCTVREP (866-228-8737).
