We’ve also incorporated Wide Viewing Angle types of technologies, and this means that the customer is going to be able to see better image, that has good contrast from whether you’re looking at it straight-on or from the sides and that your colors aren’t going to be washed out.

So with HP monitors in our consumer product line that are Technicolor Certified we do have a software solution that ships in the box, and with that software solution, called My Display, they are able to use the App Sync™ function of that to be able to trigger certain applications to operate within certain pre-defined color spaces that they wish, so every time they watch, say a DVD or Blu-Ray movie, it’s going to be within the proper color space.

If they choose to open up Photoshop, and do photo editing of images they’ve just taken on a camera, they can rest assured that with the App Sync™ technology, it’ll automatically be seen in the SRGB color space as well.
