For users who find that one display is never enough and can’t afford the NEC CRV43, EVGA has released the InterView 1700 Dual-Monitor system. The unit consists of two side-by-side 17-inch widescreen LCD monitors suspended on a central frame, which houses a built-in 1.3MP webcam, built-in microphone, and three port USB 2.0 hub. With a supported graphics card the dual displays can be set up as a span to provide an extended desktop, or cloned to allow one display to be flipped 180 degrees for easy viewing by a second person on the opposite side of the desk.
When one of the monitors is rotated 180 degrees vertically the image is also automatically flipped to ensure no one need resort to standing on their head to read the display.
The Interview 1700 is aimed at business professionals who regularly need to collaborate or share information with other parties and don’t want to suffer people crowding around their chair to peer over their shoulder. The InterView 1700’s monitors both support a native resolution of 1440 x 900 and feature a contrast ratio of 500:1, 220 CD/m brightness and 8ms response time. Input is from dual-link DVI and HDMI.
The EVGA InterView 1700 Dual-Panel Display is available now for USD$650.
