The network display chip and software company, DisplayLink and LG have jointly announced the new 22-inch LCD USB monitor with integrated DisplayLink technology – LG L226WU-PF, which allows users to connect up to six extra screens to PC or notebook through standard USB 2.0 connection, thanks to DisplayLink’s DL-160 network display device and software technology.

“We’re thrilled that LG is rapidly expanding its line of USB connected displays in partnership with DisplayLink,” said Hamid Farzaneh, president and CEO at DisplayLink. “In-Stat research projects that USB network displays will exceed 26 million units and 40 million units in 2010 and in 2011 respectively, and LG is among the key forward-thinking display companies leading this major paradigm shift.”

According to the company, “With built-in auto-install software, the L226WU-PF includes a widescreen panel supporting a 1680 x 1050 resolution, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, and a five millisecond response time.”

The new LG Windows Vista compatible L226WU-PF LCD monitor is now available in Europe for about 300 Euro, but availability in other areas has yet to be announced.
