Reduce costs and increase safety and efficiency - that is the task of a new network monitor (zero client) coming from LG. Available in the popular 19-inch business format and bearing a resolution of 1,280 x 1,024 pixels, the N1910LZ is ideal for complex virtualized IT infrastructures.
Where once power was consumed by a desktop PC with a monitor or a notebook, now a zero client covers all needs at one workplace. Since the zero client is controlled centrally, users do not loose any more time waiting for a computer to boot or to shut down. Neither do they have to local administration, which improves security and performance.
Compared to a notebook, the power saving is to the disadvantage of the N1910LZ. Despite LED backlight, the display requires up to 42 watts. However, energy consumption is increased by two USB 1.1 ports (for mouse and keyboard), dual USB 2.0 and a LAN port. In addition, VGA input and output, as well as DVI, can be found on the connection panel. To prevent colleagues from feeling harassed by the one-watt speakers, a headphone can be connected to the corresponding output, thus fully silencing the network display.
Due to a horizontal scope of 356 degrees, the N1910LZ provides good visibility, even to the colleague sitting at the next desk. (Photo: LG)
In addition, the matte black-framed panel can be tilted by 25 degrees, and there is height adjustment, too. The zero client combines a screen brightness of 250 cd/m2 with a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and features five milliseconds response time. Being available already, the LG N1910LZ zero client with a 19-inch diagonal costs 349 Euros. A 22-inch model will follow in early 2012.
