Dec 20, 2006, 00:00 ET from Ingram Micro Inc.

    SANTA ANA, Calif., Dec. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- With a focus on the value
 market in large, wide-format LCD desktop displays, V7 today launched its
 first 22-inch wide-format LCD monitor for the North American market.
     The new V7 R22W02, exclusively available through technology distributor
 Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE:   IM), is introduced in time to allow retailers and
 business users to prepare for the worldwide launch of the Vista operating
 system, which supports the 16:9 aspect ratio display format. The 22-inch
 wide LCD display is the perfect solution for various applications like
 desktop publishing, Web design and other common business and high-end home
 computing uses.
     With functions typically found on premium monitors, the wide-format
 R22W02 offers a high value-to-features ratio, including a vivid 16.7
 million colors, 16:9 screen size, long panel life (40,000 hours), on-screen
 controls and super-sharp resolution. Part of the V7 family of products, the
 R22W02 is manufactured to the same standards as high-end monitors from
 name-brand manufacturers. It is the largest wide display available for
 under $349.
     "Retailers and VARs alike will be attracted to V7's value-priced
 wide-format monitor," said Rainer Kozlik, vice president, general manager,
 Private Label worldwide. "The R22W02 addresses a key market in that it
 gives the cost-conscious end-users access to high-end features today and
 prepares them for future technologies."
     This high-definition display is Vista OS-compliant and compatible with
 the software's leading-edge wide-format capabilities. Consumers and
 business users will be ready to leverage the new OS graphics features
 immediately, as well as enjoy broadband-delivered content in brilliant,
 bright colors.
     Last January, V7 introduced its 17-inch wide-format monitor to the
 North America market. Now, with its 19-inch wide-format, V7 extends its
 presence in the 16:9 monitor space.
     V7 representatives will be present during the CES event in Las Vegas
 and will be hosting private product demonstrations at the Aladdin Hotel.
