IBM regains graphics high ground

News In this C3 Mag article, the IBM T221 flat panel monitor is reviewed. At an incredible 200+ pixels per inch and an enormous 3840x2400 resolution, the monitor delivers outstanding visual performance.

Almost every aspect of the T221 is ground breaking. Aluminium is used as the gate material instead of molybdenum and tungsten, the metals traditionally used in displays. IBM's engineers have developed Post-Spacer technology - permanent spacers that provide super-sealing capabilities to prevent light leakage. The more traditional spacer balls are randomly distributed and can cause sparkle effects when they happen to sit within the active area. There is also a new protocol under development called Digital PV Link, which will update only the pixels that have changed - this will significantly reduce the bandwidth requirements.

The monitor retails for $8,399 US.
