ViewSonic has released its second-generation smart displays. The 24-inch (23.8-inch viewable) VSD241 is a self-contained Android 4.2 Jelly Bean-based smart display with a NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor. Paired with a 2 MP webcam with integrated microphone for video conferencing, and built-in speakers, this dual-point optical touch screen display is designed for commercial vertical markets such as signage, point of information, and kiosks for interactive applications in enterprise, SMB, education, POS, hospitality, and more.
"We're giving our customers even better performance and larger screen options, along with the latest Android operating system. The result is the best possible desktop experience for Android stand-alone usage, cloud connectivity, and remote desktop capabilities," says Erik Willey, desktop solutions product marketing director, ViewSonic.
For further functionality and interactivity, the VSD241 offers connectivity options, including HDMI for connecting a notebook or tablet, as well as two full-sized USB ports, a micro USB and a mini USB, and SD card storage. Plenty of network connection options are integrated for instant access and transfers of data, documents and multimedia files, including integrated networking (RJ-45 Ethernet), 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. Paired with VESA mount capabilities and DC power support, the VSD241 is designed for both stand-alone and extended display operation.
The VSD241 is now available in North America for $499.00. A new 22-inch model, the VSD221, will be available in December for $399.00.
