Village Tronic, one of the leading pioneers of multi-display solutions, is looking for new distributors and resellers for its growing range of multi-monitor products.

According to Ascanio Orlandini, Village Tronic's CTO, the recent launch of the company's innovative ViBook has created a huge demand with enquiries coming in from around the world. "ViBook has had some tremendous write ups," he explained. "Reviewers immediately saw how ViBook can improve productivity by enabling users to easily add additional monitors to their desktop or notebook via USB. Jon Peddie of Jon Peddie Research neatly summed up the benefits of ViBook by saying the more you can see, the more you can do."

Technical details for ViBook
Up to six displays can be driven by one Windows based computer and up to four for a Mac OS one. This gives a huge amount of screen area that can significantly increase productivity as many different programs can be open and visible at the same time without having to open and close pane. Each display is driven by an ultra compact ViBook that plugs into the DVI socket of the display and the other end of the cable goes to the USB port of the desktop or notebook. Village Tronic's special multi-display software enables users to surround themselves with an extended desktop of independent applications each running on their own dedicated screen or one huge desktop spanning across several screens.

Designed and manufactured in Italy, ViBook is extremely small at only 4.3cm by 7cm by 2.4cm (1.7 in by 2.8 in by 0.9in) and has a three year warrantee. It is supplied as a complete USB Graphics System that includes a DVI to VGA cable for high quality analog output to displays, a VESA mounting cradle and Village Tronic's sophisticated multi-screen software for an enhanced user experience - VT MultiDisplay software for Windows and VT Voilà for Mac. Other cable options are available as optional extras.

The ViBook Graphics USB-DVI Cable is compatible with any computer system with an USB 2.0 port running Mac OS X 10.4 and 10.5 on Intel-based Macs; and Windows 2000, Windows XP (32-bit), Windows Vista (32 and 64-bit). It can support displays up to 22" in size, with a resolution of 1680x1050 (widescreen) and 1600x1200 (standard) in 16 and 32 bit color. As it draws its power from the USB within the specified power rating, no additional power adapters are required and it can even work via a USB hub. It can be used with or independently of the video card already installed in the computer and can even drive projectors and HDTV displays.
