CinemaView line of monitors is the first of third parties with Mini DisplayPort, but brings a somewhat familiar look

Three months after the adoption of Apple's Mini DisplayPort standard by VESA, finally a third-party company decided to launch a monitor with the compact interface: Collins America today announced three CinemaView monitors, but they bring a look somewhat known to us, see below.


The line is available in sizes of 19 inches (1440 × 900 pixels in resolution, $ 300), 20.1 inches (1650 × 1050 pixels, $ 400) and 24 inches (1920 × 1080 pixels, $ 500) and features three ports USB 2.0, stereo audio and, like Apple's LED Cinema Display, also features an all-in-one cable. Despite not having a built-in MagSafe or iSight connector, the displays cost less than half of Cupertino's offerings, bringing a brightness of 350cd / m2 and a contrast ratio of 1000: 1.

The products are expected to hit the market “before September 1” this year.
