Nowadays a lot of monitors offer resolutions that exceed that of full-HD TVs, but while they can easily display high-definition movies the way they were meant to be displayed, all the other videos become truly blurry on such monitors due to low-quality upscaling that modern graphics adapters and software players can provide. But Gateway says it solved the problem in its new 30” monitor by integrating an advanced hardware video processor.

The new Gateway XHD3000 30” monitor that has native resolution of 2560x1600 features Silicon Optix Realta HQV video processor that can upscale standard-definition videos as well as high-definition videos from 1920x1080 to panel’s native resolution. Gateway hopes to considerably improve video playback quality on its display thanks to Realta HQV video processor, which can reduce noise, enhance details and perform other operations using robust algorithms developed by leading video processor developer Silicon Optix.

Even though it remains to be seen whether the high-end HQV chip can truly dramatically improve the quality of standard-definition and high-definition videos on a display that sports beyond-full-HD resolution, the fact that manufacturers paid attention to this problem is already positive in general. Besides, it also once again emphasizes the convergence between the consumer electronics (CE) and the personal computer (PC).

Gateway’s XHD3000 display features S-PVA panel and offers 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m2 brightness, 6ms (grey-to-grey) refresh rate as well as 178° wide viewing angle both horizontally and vertically. The new monitor can be connected to a PC or other electronics using a wide-range of connectors types, including HDMI, single-link/dual-link DVI-D, D-Sub, component, s-video and composite interfaces.

“The Gateway XHD3000 takes a dramatic step forward in expanding Gateway’s award winning line of HD displays and raising the bar for display technology. Its combination of leading-edge technology and usability features makes it the most advanced and versatile display on the market, and the only display available that is truly equipped to handle any PC or CE video device,” said Gary Elsasser, senior vice president of products, Gateway.

The new Gateway XHD3000 30” extreme HD display will be available via Gateway’s Direct channels as well as technology and electronics retailers that sell Gateway products. It is priced at $1699.
