MEDL Technology today announced the prototype of ‘The Panel’, the
world’s first fully functional, portable LED monitor, at IDG’s DEMO
conference in Palm Springs, CA.
"The technology wasn’t available previously to manufacture an
elegant, lightweight and durable, portable display; but with The Panel,
anyone can add a second or third monitor to their laptop and easily pack
it up and go," said Eric Liao, CEO of MEDL Technology. "Our vision is
to make life easier for the laptop-toting public and we’re thrilled to
have the opportunity to launch our first product at DEMO."
A multi-purpose, LED display, the MEDL Panel offers both
business and consumer audiences the very first portable 13" display.
Lightweight at 2.2 lbs., it can be used for work or play. Students,
telecommuters and road warriors alike can add more screen real estate to
their computer’s desktop and enhance productivity at home. The
battery-operated Panel is perfect for desks, conference rooms or for an
impromptu presentation in any location.
The Panel connects easily to computers using either Mac OS or
Windows operating systems via a common USB cable and is ready for use in
fewer than 10 seconds. With WXGA resolution and a five-hour battery
life, The Panel provides portability with incredible LED brightness,
high definition and resolution. Not limiting itself to just laptops, The
Panel can be used with portable video players, cameras, DVD players,
iPhones, iPods and gaming platforms such as Xbox and PS3.
Last year over 160 million LCD monitors were sold and
DisplaySearch forecasts growth to 197 million by 2012.
