Brea, California (July 29, 2020) — ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of visual solutions, announced the launch of its brand new 15.6” portable monitors, including a touch version, TD1655, and non-touch version, VG1655. The TD/VG1655 provides a one-cable solution that extends content from laptops, smartphones, and gaming consoles easily. Through two universal Type C connectors, it can deliver up to 60W of two-way power, so users can charge their connected devices while using the portable monitor.
“ViewSonic continually delivers superior visual solutions with innovative functionalities and features, which enhances the user experience to a great extent,” said Oscar Lin, Head of Monitor Business Unit at ViewSonic. “The new TD/VG1655 is a Full HD portable monitor that is perfect for overcoming one-screen limitations outside the office. Built for business travelers, remote workers, and digital nomads, it can serve as a complementary display, and easily extend the screen from phones, tablets, or laptops for mobile work, one-on-one presentations, or leisure entertainment.”
Highly Portable for Use Anywhere
The TD/VG1655 comes in a compact 15.6-inch size and is lightweight at less than 1 kilogram, and has a slim 6mm thickness, meaning it can go anywhere you want to use it. It’s a one-cable solution that provides audiovisual, power, and touch signal transmission. With its built-in back stand and pivotable display, users can adjust the viewing angle and orient the screen in both portrait and landscape viewing modes, making it more versatile for a number of use cases.
Two-way power with USB Type C
Unlike most portable monitors on the market today, the ViewSonic TD/VG1655 portable monitor comes with a 60W PD power adapter. Furthermore, the TD/VG1655 has dual USB Type C ports that can quickly deliver video and audio over a single cable, as well as two-way power. A connected laptop can power the TD/VG1655, or the TD/VG1655 can power a connected laptop via the power adapter.
Highly Compatible for Greater Flexibility
The TD/VG1655 supports different operating systems, including Windows, Android, Chrome, and Mac OS. Therefore, it can be used with a variety of laptops, tablets, smartphones, and video game consoles.
The TD/VG1655 features a durable form factor thanks to its magnetic cover and mat, robust one-piece design, and metal case and aluminum stand. Combined, these design features help to make the TD/VG1655 road-worthy for work anywhere, or for moving around the workplace or home with greater peace of mind that the device will withstand the rigors of use. The screen of TD1655 is made with built-in 6H hardness for added durability and features anti-scratch protection that can even stand up to key scratches.
