Serious Monitor Envy

In a recent Siemens press release they're showing off their, "Remote Expert Center for Power Plants in Karlsruhe, Germany" but one can't miss the awesome monitor they're standing in front of. Which only leads to the question, "Where and how much?"

No doubt...

When you find out where and how much let me know. Somehow i will talk my girlfriend into letting me have it...

Besides who needs a dinning room anyhow... heh

Pretty nice ... although I suspect (but could be wrong) that it is not a monitor.

It looks like a snap-on type of screen onto which you project with a DLP type of projector ... the split images can be generated with visual switching equipment etc.

This is the type of thing that network operations centres use, and can run you 100k easy for the whole set up, depending on the quality. So dig deep into your pocket :-)

No kidding! And, "What's the res on that?"

Actually only 1400 x 1050 - the thing about it is that you have the capability for multiple screen shots on one screen that many people can look at at the same time.
