Even though Liebermann only has a few selling products, they have generated quite the stir over the last few months. From fraud conspiracies to copyright problems, Liebermann spent the better part of the last 3 months just fighting off critics. Even we were a little miffed at how Liebermann was able to get products released to print magazines for review, since the demo units they displayed at the OCZ hospitality suite were clearly not finished. Regardless, the sample 4x19" Grand Canyon cinematic display was working at the booth, and we just happened to have a camera with us. Voila:

The website doesn't describe it, but signal processing comes in the form of four independent interfaces, one for each display. Unfortunately, there is not an independent signal processor on the displays to produce the 6400x1200 25X VGA over a sole interface. The particular display that we saw appears to be a 4x19" configuration, which is probably only capable of 5120x1024 anyway. Graphics were supposed to be supplied by Matrox G450's, although an alternative configuration was used for our demonstration due to technical failure.

Edit: Lisa Ciesniewski from Liebermann has informed me that the video card suite for the Grand Canyon displays is actually a Radeon 9800 XT AGP and a Radeon 9200 PCI.

In case you were wondering why we happened to bump into Liebermann at OCZ suite, it's simply because OCZ will be supplying memory for the systems. Here is an unglamorous quick shot of the demo'd workstation.

    Sorry artifex, I updated it and forgot to mention it :)

    Cool. Look for a bunch of old guys in wife-beaters, drunk and with AVN passes around their necks touting the worlds-greatest new killer app.

    My company's image is very important to me. As the founder, I'd have it no other way.

    oops, never mind, I see it's been changed to AGP and PCI, now.
  • artifex - Tuesday, December 2, 2003 - link

    I'm still hoping someone can tell me how they managed to have two AGP cards in a single system?
  • KristopherKubicki - Monday, December 1, 2003 - link

    Yes we will have a bit of CES coverage.

    Look for the young guys in suits :) Thats us!

    I really hope that last comment you said about the CES is true. I'm planning on going this year. Do you or you collegues plan on going this coming year and doing an article?

    most monitors are 8 bit, only the AUO 16ms panel is 6 bit. The LG Philips and Samsung 16 and 12ms panels are 8bit. Sharp is working on 10bit panels by the end of the year.

    Humm, I'm a bit depressed to see yet another monitor company leave the CRT space; I'm still not ready for LCDs financially, and I'm still iffy on their features considering the 6bit and pixel response times(I mean we're just now at 16ms, which is barely acceptable in my book since that's nessisary for 60fps). I hope NEC stays in the game a bit longer, otherwise I'm going to have to start hording CRTs(although the current Samsung 757MB I use will last for quite some time I'm sure).

    LG Philips is doing first runs on its 19" 16ms S-IPS panel. I will have to try to check with NEC concerning that panel.

    I know NEC has had a lot of quantity issues. They dont have a huge production capability and they probably wont be able to persue it much longer.

  • miomao - Sunday, November 30, 2003 - link

    Nec said they will use a proprietary S-IPS panel for the 1980SX successor. :\

    LG.Philips already make a 19'' 25ms S-IPS panel used in the LG L1910B model.
    But the pro model L1910P has a Fujitsu MVA.
    Someone say that maybe they still have production quantity problem (?)
