LG has announced the latest in its line of widescreen LCD monitors. The W2271TC features a built-in webcam, microphone, and speakers, which means you needn’t bother with lots of extra gadgetry on your desk.
Offering 20,000:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time, 300 nits brightness, 1,680 x 1,050 resolution, and 170 degree viewing angle, the monitor comes supplied with software so that it be used for video recording and image capture and editing, and face tracking and zooming.
The specs are rather vague. Generally the speakers on monitors offer nowhere near the quality of standalone units, but for the sake of a clutter-free desk, it may well suit some users.
Pricing and availability to be confirmed.
