The Apple Cinema HD is a stunning, all-digital, 23-inch flat panel display with 1920-by-1200-pixel resolution - enough to view high-definition (HD) content with room to spare.

The 23-inch Apple Cinema HD delivers enough resolution to support high-definition video content with room to spare, and it's ideal for color-critical work. The Cinema HD delivers superb color in resolutions up to 1920 x 1200 pixels. You can put it to work designing magazine layouts, editing film or analyzing complex molecules.

The Cinema HD features an active-matrix liquid crystal display that produces flicker-free images that deliver twice the brightness, twice the sharpness and twice the contrast ratio of a typical CRT display. Unlike other flat panels, it's designed with a pure digital interface to deliver distortion-free images that never need adjusting. With over 2.3 million digital pixels, the display is uniquely suited for scientific and technical applications such as visualizing molecular structures or analyzing geological data.

Its widescreen format and high resolution make this a perfect display for creative professionals. With room for viewing two full pages of graphics and text simultaneously, you can forget about wasting time scrolling through a document or toggling between windows. And you'll have plenty of room for tear-off menus, palettes, and toolbars.

Offering accurate, brilliant color performance, the Cinema HD delivers up to 16.7 million colors across a wide gamut allowing you to see subtle nuances between colors from soft pastels to rich jewel tones. A wide viewing angle ensures uniform color from edge to edge. Apple's ColorSync technology allows you to create custom profiles to maintain consistent color onscreen and in print. The result: You can confidently use this display in all your color-critical applications.

Housed in a new aluminum design, the display has a very thin bezel that enhances visual accuracy. The display features two FireWire 400 ports and two USB 2.0 ports, making attachment of desktop peripherals, such as iSight, iPod, digital and still cameras, hard drives, printers and scanners, even more accessible and convenient. Taking advantage of the much thinner and lighter footprint of an LCD, the new displays support the VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association) mounting interface standard. Customers with the optional Cinema Display VESA Mount Adapter kit gain the flexibility to mount their display in locations most appropriate for their work environment. The Cinema HD features a single cable design with elegant breakout for the USB 2.0, FireWire 400 and a pure digital connection using the industry standard Digital Video Interface (DVI) interface. The DVI connection allows for a direct pure-digital connection to Apple's latest aluminum Power Mac and PowerBook systems, as well as to Windows-based desktops If you're looking for an ideal display for your video, scientific, or graphics applications, we invite you to take a close look at the Apple Cinema HD Display.
