World's first 16:9 Full HD 24" LCD panel

"AU Optronics has announced a new LCD panel of the MoniTV series. This panel series will span across both TVs and monitors, all with full HD resolutions and unlike other monitors, AUO's new panels will have correct HD resolutions. The Full HD standard says 1920x1080 pixels, which the TV market correctly follows with its 16:9 format. LCD monitors on the other hand, have a 16:10 aspect ratio, which results in resolutions like 1920x1200 and 1680x1050 pixels. This means that LCD monitors can't show Full HD material without some kind of image manipulation, if you don't want parts of the monitor to remain inactive.

AUO will continue to develop a series of 16:9 LCD panels for MoniTV application to meet the emerging trends of the convergence between the consumer monitor and personal TV with Full HD resolution. The full lineup includes 15-inch, 18.5-inch, 21.5-inch, 24-inch, 27-inch and 32-inch."

Hell. It's about damn time. My Acer 32" TV/Monitor uses a res of 1360x768. What as so hard for the monitor makers to understand that 16:9 is better.
