The AppleVision 850AV is an exceptional 20-inch (19-inch diagonal viewable image size) audiovisual display designed for business professionals, desktop publishers, and multimedia authors. It has built-in software and hardware to handle the most demanding graphics work. And it unites Sony Triniton tube technology with built-in stereo speakers and microphone. The AppleVision 850AV also delivers plug-and-play compatibility with DOS and Windows software–based computers, as well as Macintosh and Power Macintosh systems. For high-accuracy color, theAppleVision 850AV includes Apple DigitalColor internal calibration technology, which ensures that the display’s color accuracy remains true over time and in a variety of ambient lighting conditions. And it features automatic screen-to-print color matching using Apple ColorSync 2.0 technology. It also incorporates a new anti-reflective screen coating that provides superior visibility. Because sound is such an important part of multimedia, the AppleVision 850AV has high-quality built-in stereo speakers that rival the sound of bookshelf speakers. And the built-in microphone is engineered for close-up recording, voice annotation, speech recognition, and speakerphone use. The AppleVision 850AV uses Sony Trinitron technology — the industry standard for bright, sharp, vivid screen imaging. And multiple-scan capability allows you to view more than two full pages of text or graphics at an impressive 1,600 by 1,200 pixels.
