Panasonic has kicked off 1998 with the introduction of a 17in monitor that dips below the #400-mark With a viewable area of 16in, the PanaSync/Pro P70 replaces the PanaSync/Pro 5G monitor, and boasts enhanced performance at a lower price. With an expected street price of under #400, the PanaSync/Pro P70 offers a higher scanning rate and a smaller dot pitch than its predecessor. Panasonic claims this will improve optical accuracy and stability, particularly for the vertical edges of displayed images. The CRT flat screen monitor achieves a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 with a vertical refresh rate of 75Hz, and a higher refresh rate of 88Hz when viewing at 1280 x 1024. The controls feature eight factory pre-sets and 13 user pre-sets. In addition, the monitor has got 'greener', with power consumption dropping to 110W. Aimed at CAD and office users, the PanaSync/Pro P70 sports the same anti-glare and anti-static coatings as the previous model, but with a faster pixel clock driving the 0.25mm dot pitch tube. It supports the industry standards for emissions and ergonomics and can be installed using full VESA DDC1 and DDC2b Plug and Play. Panasonic: 0500 404041.
