Lenovo ThinkPad LT3053p: Monitor with a Protection Shell

Lenovo is going to launch an unusual PC monitor, codenamed ThinkPad LT3053p. It wouldn’t be so unusual if it had standard construction, but the manufacturer decided to equip the case with a dedicated protection shell. This shell protects the screen from third-party light engines which can deteriorate or distort the imaging. Thus, the product is to catch fancy of professional users who require accurate imaging and color rendering.

ThinkPad LT3053p is a 30-inch display with 2560x1600 pixels resolution. The monitor is based on AH-IPS array type that ensures all outstanding viewing facilities: the maximal number of displayed colors – 1.07 billion, response time – 6 ms, viewing angles – 178/178 both across and down, the maximal brightness level – 350 cd/m2, static contrast – 1000:1. Moreover, the implementation of an advanced array resulted in 100% sRGB and 99% AdobeRGB color environment sweep.
