AOC’s new 2230Fm display doesn’t need a PC
It turns out that the 2230Fm has a neat little trick up its sleeve. In addition to being a traditional flat-screen LCD with a native resolution of 1680×1050 and VGA (D-Sub 15), DVI-D, and HDMI inputs (“HDCP ready”), the 2230Fm also includes a built-in media player, with what AOC calls its “H3″ technology:
The display includes an integrated 4-in-1 media reader that accepts MMC, SD, xD, and MS memory cards; the display also features a USB 2.0 hub. Media files can be read directly off the memory cards or USB flash drives and played back on the display without needing to connect to a computer. The on-screen media player interface gives you the option to display photos, videos, or to use the display as a digital picture frame. You can also playback audio files as well. The unit houses a pair of stereo speakers.
