Panasonic is targeting both the corporate and retail markets in one with its latest 15in CRT monitor.
Priced at #160, the monitor is intended to appeal to the cost-conscious.
It has a 14in viewable screen area and supports resolutions of up to 1024x768, with a 75Hz refresh rate.
The PanaSync S50 replaces the TX-T1565, and new features include the use of a different type of phosphor layer called Crystal Pigment Phosphor, which according to the company helps to reduce eye strain. It works by trapping incoming light and thereby reducing reflection on the screen.
Weighing in at 12.5kg, the monitor is 363x368x397mm. The monitor has the usual row of buttons underneath the screen allowing for horizontal and vertical adjustment, including a degauss button which is sometimes absent on small monitors. It also has full Plug and Play capabilities.
Despite the increasing popularity and falling prices of LCD monitors, small CRT models still have a place in the market because of their low price, argued Richard Stamper, product marketing manager at Panasonic.
"There is a lot of new business because of LCD panels," he said. "They will take about 40-50% of the whole monitor market eventually. In the next two to three years, for example, they will have about 30% of the whole monitor market but for some it really is a case of economy."
The PanaSync S50 is shipping now.
