AG Neovo Releases E-Series LCD Display Now Both With DVI

Unique NeoV™ Optical Filter Hardened Glass Dramatically Enhances Image Quality and Rugged Environments

SAN JOSE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 24, 2005 -- AG Neovo, an award-winning worldwide consumer and professional manufacturer of high-end LCD displays, today announced the launch of their latest product line, the new E-Series line of LCD displays. The first E-Series products will be the E-17DA and E-19A now both with DVI.

The E-Series line of displays will be targeted to the mainstream market, and will combine a mix of aesthetics, reliability, and performance. 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 mainstream market. The E-Series is one of the most affordable lines of displays to feature the patent pending NeoV Optical Filter technology. The 17" is priced at $319.00 and the 19" is priced at $399.00.

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.

"Most all LCD panel displays have a soft touch to the screen, and if touched with certain cleaning solvents or poked accidentally too hard with a fingernail, can cause permanent damage to the screen and even destroy the entire display. We recognize that this can be costly and hazardous in various environments such as homes and public spaces where there is a greater need to address the protection of the LCD display," stated Philip Chang, Sales and Vice President of AG Neovo. "An additional plus of this product line is that its simple elegance of the E-Series allows it to subtly blend into both business and home environments, while equipping E-Series displays with NeoV technology ensures users of a longer product life for their displays."

The E-17DA 17" display features a swift 12ms response time, a brightness of 260, and a 450:1 contrast ratio, while the 19" E-19A offers a crisp 500:1 contrast ratio, a 12ms response time, and a brightness of 250. Both the E-17DA and the E-19A support SXGA resolution (1,280 by 1,024 pixels), feature built-in multimedia speakers with a headphone jack, a Kensington security slot, an easy to use OSD, and elegant exterior. Optional AG Neovo accessories such as a TV Turner (TV-02), LCD Arm, and Wall Mount Kit can also be included with either of the E-Series displays.
