Apple Cinema Display 30" LCD Monitor Features
See the Forest and the Trees The 77% increase in screen real estate of the 30-inch Cinema HD Display gives you the space you need to visualize your entire creation yet provides the resolution necessary to edit in place. So you can lay out a two-page spread and edit text without squinting. Or work with a Photoshop document with room for more than 30 layers in a palette. Take in the whole timeline in Final Cut Pro HD, with audio controls. Display an unheard of 126 Logic mixer controls simultaneously. Or peer into four different modes of a molecule visualization with subatomic detail.
Connect With Pure Digital DVI Give your PowerBook G4 a second display when you’re not on the road. Now you can connect the 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display or 20-inch Apple Cinema Display directly to any PowerBook G4 with a DVI port. This DVI connection also removes all barriers to using an Apple display with a PC. If your graphics card supports DVI with DDC technology for widescreen viewing, you should be able to use these two displays with a PC.
Peripheral Devices On Your Desktop Each display includes a FireWire 400 hub and a USB 2.0 hub, each with two ports. So you can connect a printer or scanner, or a digital camera or camcorder. The FireWire port provides a convenient place to plug in an iSight camera for video chat, presented beautifully on your Apple display, or to connect your iPod dock. You can also make best use of all the latest USB 2.0 devices, whether you’re using your display with a Mac or PC.
Color Coordinated Your Apple display matches the sculpted aluminum enclosures of the Power Mac G5 and PowerBook, and for good reason. Apple designers carefully chose this hue to minimize interference with color onscreen, providing a neutral reference point for viewing your work. Strong anodized aluminum also allows for an exceptionally narrow bezel, so you can use multiple displays together seamlessly.
Effortless Adjustment The smooth motion hinge on your Apple display requires very little pressure to tilt the monitor to a different position. This design allows you to you view the display at whatever angle works for your environment, anywhere from -5° to 25°.
Become Unhinged The new Apple displays hardly have any desktop footprint, but you can make it zero with an ergonomic installation. The optional VESA FDMI mount conforms to the standard for mounting interfaces, hole patterns and associated cable and power supply locations. That means you can select from a wide range of third-party mounting solutions. The space-saving benefits of an Apple display just got better.
Widescreen Gives You More Time Mac OS X provides the stability you need to run two applications at the same time — or 12. So you can look at a web page both in a browser and in an editor and see your changes and the code at the same time. Stretching out temporal data such as timelines in Final Cut Pro or a Logic music arrangement lets you see the whole as you work on a particular effect. When you keep email and iChat windows visible, you can collaborate more easily with your colleagues.
Pure Signal When you need to manipulate color in any media, image distortion is simply not an option. Analog conversion problems caused by a VGA connection become progressively worse as you move to monitors that have higher resolutions or longer monitor cables. These issues fade away with an all digital signal. DVI transmits a distortion-free digital signal from a digital location in the graphics card to a digital location on the display’s screen. This digital connection gives you the full clarity and stability of liquid crystal technology —with sharp, clear pixels from edge to edge.
