CTX is shipping its first Restriction on Hazardous Substances (RoHS)-compliant 17in S791A and S792A monitors in advance of the regulatory deadline imposed by the European Parliament and Council of the European Union. RoHS requires that manufacturers reduce the usage of hazardous substances including lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, polybrominated biphenyls, and polybrominated diphenyl in electrical and electronic equipment by July 2006. As of that date, companies whose products are not RoHS-compliant will not be permitted for sale throughout Europe and eventually in parts of Asia.
The S791A and S792A monitors feature a contrast ratio of 400:1 and brightness of 280cd/m², 12ms response time for conferencing and other video applications, and enhanced native resolution. Viewing angles are 140 degrees from side-to-side and 120 degrees from top-to-bottom. The monitors also include built-in stereo speakers, are compatible with VESA wall-mounting standards, and are TCO’03 certified.
