ELSA Unveils 100% Digital Flat Panel Monitor: ELSA ECOMO LC-150; ELSA’s Digital LCD Monitor With Graphics Accelerator: A Complete Solution for High Quality, Professional Requirements

SANTA CLARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Nov. 13, 1997–ELSA Inc. today announced the latest addition to its growing product line: a 15″ Thin Film Transistor (TFT) LCD monitor bundled with a digital ELSA graphics accelerator, the WINNER 1000 Duo.

A unique design by ELSA, the monitor delivers a 100% digital solution with a sophisticated look and feel. With a viewable screen greater than 16″, the monitor takes up 65% less space than conventional 17″ monitors. This monitor is ideal for corporate businesses, financial and healthcare institutions, and government agencies whose high-profile environments demand a sleek, modern design and maximum efficiency.

Form and function are synthesized in this latest design from ELSA. Photo-realistic colors combined with a resolution of 1024×768 pixels at 75 Hz offers the user first-class imagery and spectacular playback of video sequences. The TFT/LCD flat panel exceeds the display quality of any 17″ monitor currently available. The 100% digital technology is responsible for brilliant display, and because of the fully plug & play implementation no fine tuning is required. The lightweight monitor not only saves desk space, but provides a crystal-clear image that consumes less power and emits virtually no radiation compared with traditional monitors.

“The flat panel monitor combined with an ELSA graphics accelerator is the ideal solution for any user looking to have a well-designed, space-saving monitor without compromising optimum performance or high-quality output,” said Thomas Neubert, VP of sales and marketing at ELSA Inc. “This new monitor provides all the quality standards for a safe and efficient working environment without compromising design.”

This monitor comes bundled with a digital ELSA graphics accelerator, a 64-bit graphics processor equipped with 4MB of EDO-RAM, based on the Virge MX chip from S3. The product comes with drivers for Windows(R) 95, Windows(R) NT and OS/2(TM) Warp support. The digital graphics output has a PanelLink(TM) interface and comes with additional analog graphics output for operation with conventional monitors. The system also has complete audio support and includes connectors for external speakers, a microphone and a headset.

ELSA Inc. is a subsidiary of ELSA AG, a privately-held company based in Aachen, Germany. Founded in 1980, ELSA has built a world-class reputation in high-performance 2D and 3D graphics solutions in addition to a wide ranging ISDN and videoconferencing product family. -0-
