Hyundai has announced its BlueH HM22D 22-inch LCD monitor, claiming it to be a great energy-efficient alternative to running a standard monitor and media centre PC for handling TV and other multimedia.
The monitor uses under three watts of power even at full brightness (300cd/m2), can handle 1080i high definition content, has a 1,680 x 1,050 resolution, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, and 5ms response time.
To handle a range of digital and analogue sources, the monitor has HDMI, VGA, component, S-video/composite, and SCART ports, and has a built-in Freeview-compliant tuner. It also comes with a remote control unit.
While it can’t perform the functions of a dedicated PVR – there’s no hard drive for a start – for general TV and media viewing, Hyundai claims its a lot kinder to the environment using their monitor than hooking up a PC.
“The BlueH HM22D may not record or pause live TV, but for quick access to a huge range of digital entertainment and news offers both a user-friendly and eco-friendly option for consumers,” said Seong Kon Chi, Managing Director Hyundai Imagequest Italy.
