World's First Curved Display: 43-inch CRVD™
Ostendo as produced the worlds first curved display. The 43-inch and 2880x900 resolution make it ideal for anyone looking for a top of the line display.
The CRVD has an aspect ratio of 38:10, which is 180% larger than a display with a 16:9 ratio. The curved screen is designed in such a way to engage 75% of the viewer's Human Visual System (HVS) peripheral vision. The 43-inch screen is about the same as working with two monitors only you don't have to install extra drivers and have other things plugged in. In fact, the CRVD is virtually ready to use out of the box. It works with existing hardware and software.
Another great feature of the CRVD is that it claims to reduce eye strain. The makers claim that if you're using multiple monitors you're eyes are constantly moving and adjusting because of the difference in distance between the monitors. With one continuous, curved, screen eye strain is severely reduced or eliminated because the user's focal distance remains constant across the screen.
All these great features come at a pretty hefty price tag, $6,499. So if your pockets are deep enough, it could quite possibly be the worlds most perfect display. But for the rest of us, perhaps we can hope for a lower priced model to come forth down the road.
