Cloud computing initiative

ViewSonic’s three new computing platforms are a key component of the company’s cloud computing initiative, assisting with the transformation of desktop PCs evolving into Web-centric displays that communicate to software applications running on the Internet.

According to the Pew Research Center, individuals are increasingly using cloud computing. Upward to 69% of Americans use Webmail services, store data online or use software programs whose functionality is located on the Web1. This means expensive notebooks and PCs with excessive computing power are not essential as desktop applications and software are no longer a necessity. As cloud computing gains popularity, becoming a staple in corporate, commercial and organizational environments, the new ViewSonic line of visual computing products is a natural progression to aid the shift in demand for portability and mobility.

“We are excited to provide our channel partners a new line of products that offer their customers options to upgrade existing equipment and save costs on future deployments,” said Jeff Volpe, vice president and general manager of ViewSonic North America. “Backed by 20 years of display experience and with strong PC partners to deliver computing demands, this powerful combination positions ViewSonic to supply affordable products at excellent quality.”

ViewSonic’s new visual computing line will be on display at Bellagio Ballroom 6 during the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, from January 8-9, 2009. For more information on ViewSonic products, please visit www.viewsonic.com.
