ASUS Unveils World’s Slimmest 22-inch Widescreen LCD Monitor Monday 28 July 2008 PDF Print The new ASUS LS221H serves up visual elegance with top-rate performance The slender (45mm), aesthetically pleasing and high performance of the LS221H caters for the discerning user, who looks for not only robust technical credentials and superb display capabilities but a positive contribution to home-style. The clean lines of this ultra-slim 22" widescreen LCD monitor combine unusual contrasting materials including leather, within a glossy black chassis and diamond-cut corners. This perfect combination of hard and soft elements subtly emphasizes the luxurious nature of the LS221H; while leading the “soul” of the product into perfect alignment with boutique displays and interior design. The LS221H is also equipped with a 9H rated, diamond-cut glass surface that protects against damage and pollutive substances. The anti-reflection glass also provides a 96% transmission rate and a reflective rate of less than 2% - allowing users to view clearer images and more vibrant colours. Additionally, the Light-in-Motion II dynamic lighting effects from LEDs built into the base add to the ambience. Embedded HDMI input does away with cable clutter and provides HD multimedia enjoyment with the best quality. Proving that this beauty is not just skin deep, the LS221H is equipped with ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio (ASCR) 4000:1 and two-millisecond response times that delivers sharp, vibrant images of the very best quality without any ghosting. The “Aspect Control” function allows selecting display modes between full and 4:3 modes for perfect enjoyment of true-to-life HD video games and movies without image distortion. The ASUS Splendid Video Intelligence Technology automatically corrects and constantly adjusts every detail of the image to optimize visual quality – providing deeper colours, sharper contrasts and an overall brighter picture. Five preset video modes, three skin tones, and five colour temperature settings also allow users to easily customize the LS221H to their personal preferences.
