Digitimes Research: Monitor vendors look to new sizes and dual interface technology to push sales
Ricky Tu, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Thursday 21 November 2013]

LCD monitor vendors are looking to new sizes for high-end products as a way to further carve out a niche in the market amid declining sales and increased competition from ultra-mobile devices.

Evidence of this has already made its way into the market when Hewlett-Packard (HP) released two new 30-inch LCD monitors, one in the China market and one in Japan. Both units come equipped with WUXGA (2560 by 1600) resolution and IPS panels.

Digitimes Research expects other monitor vendors to release similar sized products in addition to 29-inch units through the end of 2013 and into 2014. Monitors sized 29- and 30-inch, however, have limited panel supply as most panel makers do not focus on production of those sizes, therefore the monitors are expected to be aimed at niche markets.

In addition to the new sizes, the vendors also plan to include HDMI/DisplayPort dual interface technology and other high-end features to attract customers, added Digitimes Research.
