LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2007 - LG Electronics (LG), a global leader in high-performance liquid crystal display (LCD) technology, today introduced its early 2007 line of innovative LCD computer monitors for the U.S. market, all are "Certified for Windows Vista" widescreen LCDs.
The four flagship models, which range in size from'- to 22-inches and incorporate Microsoft's Industrial Design Toolkit (IDT), highlight LG's broad lineup of LCD monitors for early 2007.

The widescreen monitors are optimal for displaying HD content, which is sure to satisfy video and multimedia gaming enthusiasts.
The flagship'- (L196WTQ-WF), 20- (L206WTQ-WF), and 22- inch (L226WTQ-WF and L226WA-WF) monitors incorporate LG's Digital Fine Contrast Technology to boost the contrast ratio to 3,000:1, one of the highest available on the market today. With an ultra-fast 2ms response time, the units provide sharp, crisp images with reduced motion artifacts. LG's "ez Zooming" technology helps users quickly change the size/resolution with just a click of a button, an ideal tool for smaller fonts or images that need to be magnified. The new 22-inch (L226WA-WF) monitor also includes AV inputs.
The four monitors incorporate DVI with HDCP for Windows Vista support and, of course, RGB. In addition to a wide viewing angle of 170-degrees, the units also include LG's f-ENGINE, the world's first picture-enhancing chip for desktop monitors. f-ENGINE enhances brightness and color independently of each other.
