7″ MIMO Display Transforms Monitor into CE Gadget With DisplayLink Technology
USB graphics productivity is available now in a fun new pint size package. Powered by DisplayLink technology, the Nanovision MIMO 7″ USB connected and powered LCD mini monitors are a friendly and affordable way to add productivity to notebook and desktop computers.
Hitting the Korean market first, the Nanovision MIMO monitors are ideal for dedicating visual workspace to applications that are used at a glance, such as instant messaging and calendars. MIMO is also perfect for Gadgets and Widget applications like news and weather monitoring and multimedia playback such as digital TV, video conferencing, MP3s, photos and more.
“Nanovision gives you what you want, when you want it,” said Hamid Farzaneh, president and CEO of DisplayLink. “Fun applications are always within view, while reserving your main screens to the productivity task at hand.”
Using USB for both connectivity and power, Nanovision is able to offer MIMO at consumer price points. The 700 series starts with the UM-710 7″. Priced at 130,000 South Korean Won (US $129), it supports 800×480 resolution and both landscape and portrait orientation and either mirror or extend display modes.
“By exclusively becoming a USB device, the monitor has been transformed from a PC component to a consumer electronics gadget,” added Farzaneh. “And by integrating multi-function features like VoIP, DTV and Touch Panels, the interesting uses for this technology have yet to be fully realized.”
The MIMO model UM-730 adds a complete videophone with 1.3M Webcam, MIC and earphone jack, and the UM-750 features a Touch Screen. Nanovision sells direct to consumers and to electronics Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
