The E-Series line of displays are targeted for institutional applications, combining a mix of aesthetics, reliability, and performance that are well suited for classroom environments. The E-Series displays are elegantly designed, combining a sleek black display with softer, more graceful curves on the sides and back. Control buttons and the built-in multimedia speakers are designed not to be intrusive, but instead to blend in with the overall design. For viewing flexibility, all E-Series displays feature a folding base with tilt support, and can be wall or arm mounted just as easily as they can be placed on a desktop.

With the E-Series, AG Neovo also addresses the need for display protection in the institutional market. The E-Series is one of AG Neovo's most affordable lines of displays to feature the patent pending NeoV Optical Filter technology. The NeoV Optical Filter is a layer of specially formulated hardened optical glass added to the display that significantly enhances the image quality, while protecting the panel from various types of damage, including scratches, repetitive touching, and washing.

"As flat panel displays become more and more common in various environments such as homes and public schools, there is a greater need to address the aesthetics and protection of the LCD display. The classroom environment requires sturdy and well-built products because of the high use and tough use it gets from many different users," stated Philip Chang, Vice President of AG Neovo-USA. "The simple elegance and rugged construction of the E-Series allows it to subtly blend into both educational and home environments, while equipping E-Series displays with NeoV technology ensures users of a longer product life for their displays."
