It seems that if you don't make something portable these days people just won't want to buy it. That looks to be the reasoning behind MEDL Technology and their plans to launch the world's first portable LED monitor. Typical, tiny secondary displays are old news because "The Panel", as MEDL Technology is calling it, is an actual 13.3-inch LED-backlit monitor that measures less than an inch thick.
According to CEO of MEDL Technology Eric Liao, "The technology wasn't available previously to manufacture an elegant, lightweight and durable portable display but with The Panel, anyone can add a second or third monitor their laptop and easily pack it up and go. Our vision is to make life easier for the laptop-toting public and we're thrilled to have the opportunity to launch our first product at DEMO."
MEDL Technology unveiled The Panel at IDG's DEMO conference in Palm Springs, California yesterday. The Panel is a multi-purpose LED display and is targeted at both consumer and business audiences. The Panel is lightweight coming in at only 2.2lbs and is perfect for work or entertainment. The device is Mac OS and Windows compatible and connects to easily to any computer through a standard USB cable and can be up and running as quickly as 10 seconds.
The Panel sports some nice specs. It has a WXGA resolution as well as a 5 hour battery life via the rechargeable battery. It has a slew of connectivity with DVI, VGA, Component, S-Video, mini-HDML and USB. But one of the best features about The Panel is that it is not restricted to use with a computer. The Panel also works extremely well with portable video players, cameras, DVD players, iPhones, iPods, the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360.
According to MEDL Technology, should the company secure funding, they plan on launching The Panel in Q4 2010 with a price tag of $350. Hopefully, for all of us, MEDL gets the funding because this device looks to an awesome new innovation.
