Fujitsu's next-generation version of its ImageSite(TM) flat-panel plasma display offers a new high-contrast screen. The screen improves contrast by a factor of six to let the new display deliver clearer, brighter pictures with quality comparable to that of conventional CRT technology, say company officials. Other improvements include: twice the brightness of the previous model, quieter operation, improved SVGA compatibility, white balance adjustment, and better image quality from such new source materials as DVD and other broadcast video formats. The 42-inch-diagonal monitor costs $10,999--20% less than its predecessor. Fujitsu Micro-electronics: Product Code 4203
