Fujitsu Siemens intros LCDs with zero-power idle

Loog Fujitsu SiemensFujitsu Siemens Computers on Wednesday announced the release of the world's first monitors to draw absolutely no power when in standby mode, or what the company calls Eco mode. The two SCENICVIEW ECO range monitors, the 20-inch P20W-5 ECO and 22-inch P22W-5 ECO, feature a power supply that automatically switches off when in the power-saving mode. The company claims the technology allows the monitors to draw zero watts during the state, in comparison to between one and six watt draws from competitors.

The displays achieve this thanks to a switching element in the power supply that is controlled by the connected PC. When the monitor powers off, the switch breaks the flow of electricity to the power supply, and a tap of the keys will send an electrical pulse from the PC to the monitor's power supply, restoring the connection. The feature works on either analog or digital monitor outputs.

Other features of the high-end ECO displays include a tilting and height-adjustable stand, automatic brightness control based on ambient light, and HDMI inputs. Maximum brightness is rated at 300 cd/m2, while response time is 5ms. The resolution of either tops out at 1680x1050 pixels.

The monitors are currently available for purchase in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with the 20-inch model priced at the equivalent of about $620. In September, Fujitsu Siemens promises to add 24- and 26-inch models to the range.
