The ViewSonic CDE3203 is a 32 inch 1920×1080 full HD monitor built for the restaurant and hospitality industry. It offers functionality such as remote management and remote device control in order to best suit the needs of a company specializing in hospitality. It has a built-in media player, remote management features, and loud 10 watt speakers.
Multimedia Player via USB Connection
One of the coolest features of this monitor is the fact that it has an integrated multimedia player. Just connect a USB storage device to the monitor and use the built-in media player to watch videos, look at pictures or play music. This is a great feature if you plan to use this display as a kiosk for information.
The free vController software included with this monitor allows you to remotely manage any of the features. This allows for centralized administration which is crucial in a commercial environment, especially one where you have multiple displays distributed throughout your facility.
Hospitality mode allows for the control of multiple monitors from a single interface. The IR and HDMI CEC pass-through (described below) lets you control devices connected to the display remotely.
Control multiple devices with HDMI CEC and IR pass-through
The HDMI CEC and RS232 IR pass through also allows for centralized control of multiple devices including set-top boxes, blu-ray players and more. This allows for you to have the monitor in one room while the rest of the input devices are in another location. This limits client access to valuable hardware on premise.
Enjoy the View
This display has Flicker-Free technology and blue light filtering that creates a very enjoyable viewing experience overall.
HDMI, VGA & SPDIF Inputs
This monitor has a variety of inputs to fit any configuration. Use HDMI, VGA or SPDIF inputs to connect your devices.
The 10 watt speakers in this monitor are actually quite loud. 10 watts might not seem like a lot, but considering some displays have speakers that range from 2w-5w these speakers are considerably better.
Bright, Full HD Display
This monitor has a resolution of 1920×1080 which is Full HD. It’s also a very bright display, rated at 320 nits. It uses LED backlights which are bright and provide excellent longevity, lasting up to 10 times longer than CCFL backlights.
