Apple this month released the Multiple Scan 720, a 17-inch monitor with support for ColorSync 2.0, the company's color management system.

The new display has a 16-inch diagonal view area and is based on a flat square shadow-mask CRT with a 0.28mm dot pitch. The maximum resolution for the Multiple Scan 720 is 1,280 by 1,024 pixels at a refresh rate of 60 Hz, Apple said. The monitor has a horizontal scanning frequency of 30 to 69 kHz and a vertical scanning frequency of 40 to 160 Hz.

The display's multiple-scan function allows users to switch between resolutions without restarting their computers, using either the Mac OS control strip or the monitor's built-in, on-screen menu, Apple said. In addition, the monitor has a tilt-and-swivel display and an antistatic, antireflective screen coating.

The monitor complies with established energy and safety standards, including MPR II standards for electrical- and magnetic-field emissions.

The Multiple Scan 720 is compatible with any Mac based on a 68040 or later processor and running Mac OS 7.5 or later. Apple said the monitor is available for an estimated price of $650.
