Formac Electronic, Inc. has introduced the ProNitron 22/800, a 22 inch CRT-based monitor that it says is targeted at graphics and CAD/CAM professionals, desktop publishers and programmers. The ProNitron 22/800 is Formac’s first entry into the 22 inch monitor market. It’s also the first time the US-based offices of Formac have offered a display.
The ProNitron 22/800 sports a Mitsubishi-manufactured Diamondtron Natural Flat screen tube, with 20 inches of viewable area. The monitor supports a maximum resolution of 2,048 x 1,536 pixels at 75 Hz. The display features a 0.24 grille pitch and a maximum refresh rate of 160 Hz.
A built-in self powered USB hub also provides one upstream and three downstream ports, so you can connect USB-based peripherals directly to the monitor if you’d like. Formac claims the ProNitron 22/800 sports a shorter footprint than other similar CRTs and also incorporates recessed cable connections to further help conserve desk space. The ProNitron 22/800 measures 19.5 x 19.4 x 18.6 inches. The display is fitted with a standard VGA Dsub-15 pin connection, and includes a Macintosh adapter for fitting to older systems.
The Formac ProNitron 22/800 carries a suggested retail price of US$849, and is available through Formac’s network of certified resellers. You can also purchase it through the company’s
online store if you prefer.
