Launches HD MonitorsBy: John Honovich, Published on Aug 12, 2009
Pelco is now offering HD monitors. The monitors provide 1920 x 1080 resolution in 42, 47 and 52 inch models.
The obvious question is why buy a Pelco HD monitor when you can get dozens from Wal-Mart or the local electronics store?
The key technical differences mentioned include: (1) metal bezels to withstand harsher environments, (2) capacitors designed to withstand heat up to 105 degrees F, (3) higher grade of semiconductors and (4) panels specified up to 55 degrees C. Pelco also mentioned improved consistent frames/shapes between models to maximize aesthetics.
I was not able to ascertain prices and I am not an expert at monitors so I do not have an opinion on the value of these monitors.
