D-Link Intros USB-Powered SideStage Side-Monitor for PCs

D-Link, a provider of end-to-end network solutions for consumers and business, reportedly has added a new product to its family of digital home solutions, “SideStage,” which is a side-monitor that connects to the PC via a USB slot.

Specially designed for multi-tasking computer users, SideStage helps view smaller applications. It is helpful for those users who prefer to have their main monitor screen for viewing Windows applications or main work-related applications and another small monitor for viewing other multi-media applications. A new 7-inch liquid crystal display screen monitor basically helps in moving the main desktop to a side monitor, freeing the main monitor for productivity.
SideStage is an extension to the main monitor or the desktop, which can be used for instant messaging, watching videos, conduct video conferencing via webcams, to display Yahoo Widgets and Microsoft gadgets, or house common tools from programs such as Adobe PhotoShop.
Steven Joe, president and CEO of D-Link (News - Alert) Systems, Inc., said, “The SideStage solves the problem of needing a bit more screen space, providing quick access to commonly accessed applications hidden behind larger Windows on the desktop.”
D-Link says that the SideStage is compact USB 2.0-powered monitor with a screen resolution of 800X480. It can be presented in both landscape and portrait modes. It weighs approximately 1.34 pounds and is housed in a sleek black frame. This side monitor is 7 inches wide, 4.6 inches tall and only 3/4-inch thick.
According to D-Link, SideStage is compatible with virtually all CRT and flat panel monitors. It features 32-bit true color depth for high-quality images. It also features ultra low power consumption and as well consistent with the D-Link Green initiative.
SideStage will be on display at the upcoming 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES (News - Alert)) in Las Vegas. The shipping of the product is expected to start later this year, according to the sources.
Fountain Valley, California-based D-Link claims to be an award-winning designer, developer and manufacturer of networking, broadband, digital electronics, voice, data and video communications solutions for the digital home, small office/home offic, small to medium business, and workgroup to enterprise environments.
