In addition to providing the performance people expect from ViewSonic, our ViewDock displays offer innovative options, such as the integrated iPod dock, to allow consumers to easily make the most of their digital devices, content and desktop real estate."
The ViewDock Series also features front-of-screen performance, including ClearMotiv technology, 5ms response times and 700:1 contrast ratio to get the most out of fast action games, downloaded video content and full-length movies.
Both displays have a wide, 16:10 aspect ratio with the VX2245wm featuring a 1680×1050 resolution and a 1440×900 resolution is available on the VX1945wm. Two 2.5-watt stereo speakers and a 3-watt subwoofer provide sound, while OptiSync technology supports rich visuals through multiple inputs, including direct DVI signals for optimum source-to-display synchronisation and compatibility with a variety of video sources.
