IBM INTRODUCES WORLD'S HIGHEST-RES COMPUTER MONITOR.



IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries)  announces the T220, the world's highest-resolution flat panel monitor See flat panel display. , enabling photograph-quality imaging for science, banking, engineering, publishing, medicine and business critical visualization tasks.

The T220, with a screen that shows 12-times more detail than current monitors, becomes the highest resolution monitor to be announced To be announced (TBA)

A contract for the purchase or sale of an MBS to be delivered at an agreed-upon future date but does not include a specified pool number and number of pools or precise amount to be delivered.
 and makes IBM's monitor lineup the industry's most comprehensive.

With 200 pixels per inch “Ppi” redirects here. For other uses, see PPI.

Pixels per inch (PPI) or pixel density is a measurement of the resolution of a computer display, related to the size of the display in inches and the total number of pixels in the horizontal and
 and more than 9 million pixels in total on its 22.2-inch screen, the T220 monitor displays photographs with a degree of realism not previously possible.

Applications for this technology are wide-ranging, encompassing any field that requires extremely high resolution images -- medicine, weather forecasting, publishing and graphic design, banking, product development, satellite mapping and more. The T220 also can show several of the highest definition HDTV (High Definition TV) A set of digital television (DTV) standards that offer the highest resolution and sharpest picture. Although some HDTV sets are available in standard (rather square) screen sizes, the overwhelming majority of sets are wide screen, which eliminates  channels simultaneously.

"The T220 monitor will promote groundbreaking new applications," said Bob Artemenko, director - new market development, IBM Display Business Unit. "It enhances the exchange of all types of visual data between machine and the end user, making it possible to see levels of clarity and resolution in electronic images previously attained only in the highest resolution printed media."

This technology eventually could make its way into displays for laptops, desktops, handhelds and other computing devices, making the viewing of video and digital photos a completely new and more realistic experience.

Users who need to view large volumes of complex data will benefit from the high-resolution and high-content displays. The new IBM monitor can help revolutionize:

Medicine -- Physicians will be able to view digitally photographed X-rays on the display. The X-ray images could also be sent online to specialists around the world for instant feedback and counsel.

Finance -- The T220's small-footprint yet large-screen is ideal for a trading desk Trading Desk

A desk where transactions for buying and selling securities occur. Trading desks can be found in most organizations (banks, finance companies, etc.) involved in trading investment instruments such as equities, fixed-income securities, futures, commodities and foreign
, which often holds up to six monitors displaying an array of highly detailed data, from financial indicators and trading volume Trading volume

The number of shares transacted every day. As there is a seller for every buyer, one can think of the trading volume as half of the number of shares transacted. That is, if A sells 100 shares to B, the volume is 100 shares.
 to cable news networks and e-mail with customers and other traders.

Automotive -- Crisp digital images can replace hand-built design models for all the different parts of the car, allowing for instant changes and speedier development.

Weather Forecasting -- Large printed satellite maps and photographs can be replaced with photo-quality digital images, allowing meteorologists to quickly interpret weather patterns and instantly share them with colleagues around the world.

Design -- Designers ranging from publishing, fashion, furniture, home building and beyond can view photo-quality images and detailed information easier and faster than with paper layouts.

IBM continues to enhance its leadership position in the market by expanding the flat panel product line and incorporating new advanced features. With IBM flat panel monitors, companies can realize significant savings in the form of lower energy costs, better use of space and reduced furniture expense. IBM's flat panel monitors generate about 30 percent less heat than CRT (1) (C RunTime) See runtime library.

 monitors. Also, IBM's flat panel monitors, which take up one-third the space of CRT monitors, can be mounted off the desk on brackets or radial arms so they take up no desk space.

IBM provides a complete family of both TFT-LCD TFT-LCD Thin Film Transistor - Liquid Crystal Display  flat panel and CRT monitors. The IBM T Series of flat panel monitors range from 15" to 20.8" and now to 22.2", and the E, G and P Series of CRT monitors offer entry, general and professional monitors ranging in sizes up to 21". IBM offers a choice of both TFT-LCD flat panel and CRT monitors that address a range of applications from basic word processing and spread sheets to advanced graphic applications such as CAD/CAM CAD/CAM
