ViewSonic is upgrading its highly successful desktop display with integrated webcam, microphone and speakers
London, UK – March 17, 2015 –ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solution products, today introduces its new 24’’ Full HD integrated webcam LED monitor, VG2437Smc. Packed with a 2 megapixel Full HD webcam, integrated echo cancelling microphone, stereo speakers, and advanced SuperClear® MVA wide-viewing angle display technology, the VG2437Smc enables a brilliant desktop video conferencing solution from any desktop PC running any one of a number of web or video conferencing applications.
ViewSonic estimate that desktop videoconferencing will grow by 16% in 2015. Businesses implementing desktop video conferencing benefit from reduced costs, improved collaboration between employees and increased productivity through better communication. Designed for use with Microsoft Lync® (soon to be Skype for Business) and Skype®, Google Hangouts®, Cisco Jabber® and Webex®, Citrix Gotomeeting® or Viber®, the VG2437Smc converts almost any desktop PC in to a personal web and video conferencing solution that allows users to connect to other desktop users, group conferencing solutions in meeting rooms or Smartphone users.
“Face-to-face communication is essential for today’s businesses. However, due to time and budget constraints, businesses are unable to fly their employees across the globe to tackle every problem. As a result, instant messaging and conferencing software, such as Citrix GoToMeeting, Microsoft® Lync®, and Skype, are often being used as alternative forms of communication. Statistics indicate that there are 560 million registered skype users who spend a total of 2 billion minutes every day on skype. In 2013, skype-to-skype calls represented 40% of the total telecom traffic worldwide.” said Claire Chuang, Product Manager for Monitors at ViewSonic Europe Ltd. “The low cost of videoconferencing solutions has become one of the key considerations for end-users in European markets, which are still recovering from the economic downturn, when choosing enterprise monitors. With the VG2437Smc all-in-one video conferencing solution, business customers can now save time and travel expenses while enjoying a seamless connectivity, as well as a collaborative and productive working environment.”
Video conferencing is becoming a significant meeting tool that enables frequent interaction over large distances at low cost, and it has now become a trend for worldwide companies to seek for time and cost saving solutions. Although most laptops and Smartphones today integrate a webcam, this is not the case for desktop PCs. ViewSonic aims to address this and make web and video conferencing directly from your desk quick and easy.
Ideal for both business users and consumers, the VG2437Smc Full HD 24’’ monitor with integrated 2-megapixel webcam features a full ergonomic design which allows users to adjust the angle and placement of the screen for more flexibility, dual 2-watt speakers and echo cancelling microphone, as well as 2 USB and mic/headphone ports for connecting headsets, making it ideal for web and video conferencing. Using SuperClear® MVA technology means that users do not need to compromise on display performance. With 95% sRGB coverage and 20M: dynamic contrast ratio, this monitor provides incredibly sharp images and excellent video playback.
All commercial end users can register online for a 4 years warranty when buying ViewSonic’s VG2437Smc monitor.
