7 inch MIMO display transforms monitor into consumer electronics gadget
USB graphics productivity is now available 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.
The Nanovision MIMO monitors will be shipping to the UK and Italy in early December, and 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” which supports 800x480 resolution as well as 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 realised.”
The UM-730 7” MIMO model adds a complete videophone with 1.3M Webcam, MIC and earphone jack, while the UM-750 features touchscreen functionality.
“The MIMO mini display is so versatile," concluded Farzaneh. “We can’t wait to see it make its way to desks worldwide.”
Nanovision sells direct to consumers and electronics Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs). For more information about Nanovision and the MIMO mini display visit www.nanovision.co.kr
