The AppleVision 1710 is a superior-quality color display that's perfect for business tasks such as desktop publishing, working with spreadsheets, and creating presentations. It combines multiple-scan capabilities with the next-generation Trinitron tube, and offers a host of advanced Apple DigitalColor technology features--setting a new standard in clarity, color accuracy, and viewing flexibility. And it features plug-and-play compatibility with DOS and Windows software-based computers as well as Macintosh and Power Macintosh systems.

Everyone wants accurate color on their monitor and the Apple Digital Color technology features of the AppleVision 1710 let it offer truly unprecedented image quality. It includes internal self-calibration technology--eliminating the need to spend time and money to maintain accurate calibration. In addition, the AppleVision 1710 provides automatic screen-to-print matching using Apple's unparalleled ColorSync 2.0 technology. It can also be adjusted to compensate for many of the effects of ambient lighting and CRT phosphor aging. And its intuitive Macintosh software provides control over all screen functions, including geometry, brightness, contrast, and variable color temperature.

Sony Trinitron screens have long been known for their outstanding image quality, and the screen of the AppleVision 1710 is no exception. In fact, it represents the next generation of Trinitron technology, featuring not only an incredibly vivid, sharp picture, but also a design that reflects the light in the room away from your eyes. And its multiple-scan technology gives you the flexibility you need, letting you view more than two full pages of information at a time at an impressive 1,280 by 1,024 pixels.
