Apple LED Cinema Display overview

  • 1Description

The 27" LED Cinema Display from Apple is an LCD computer monitor, designed for use with Apple computer systems. It features a striking glass and aluminum design, which matches that of Apple's popular iMac computer.

The display features an impressive 2560 x 1440 resolution, integrated iSight camera, microphone, and 49W stereo speakers. It uses IPS technology for superior image quality, and features a glossy finish for improved color saturation. An ambient light sensor automatically adjusts screen brightness to match your surroundings.

The display also features an integrated USB hub and one Mini DisplayPort. It even features a MagSafe power connector, which can be used to provide power to a connected MacBook or MacBook Pro computer. Its desktop stand supports -5-25° tilt adjustment.

See the Bigger Picture

A Bigger Display for Your Biggest Ideas
Connect your Mac with Mini DisplayPort to the LED Cinema Display for a panoramic viewing experience unlike any other. You get a huge 27" glossy widescreen display with a cinematic 16:9 aspect ratio and an astonishing 2560 x 1440 resolution. With 60% more pixels than the 24" LED Cinema Display, the 27" LED Cinema Display gives you even more room for all your windows and applications
LED Backlighting -- One Bright Idea
Full brightness with no waiting. That's the big advantage of LED backlight technology. Unlike most displays that take time to warm up before they reach maximum brightness, a LED backlit display is instantly on and uniformly bright. LED backlighting also gives you greater control over screen brightness. So you can tune the LED Cinema Display to suit the ambient light in even the dimmest room
Stunning from Every Angle
The LED Cinema Display looks great from any seat in the house, thanks to a premium display technology called in-plane switching (IPS). IPS gives you a bright picture with excellent color consistency -- even if you're viewing the display from the side
49 Watts of Stereo Sound
The LED Cinema Display gives you more than video -- it gives you audio, too. The built-in 49W speaker system includes an integrated subwoofer that delivers immersive, full-range sound for music, movies, and games
Built-In iSight and Microphone
With the built-in iSight camera and microphone, you can connect your Mac desktop or notebook -- open or closed -- and have video chats or take pictures using Photo Booth
Ambient Light Sensor
The new ambient light sensor intelligently adjusts the brightness of the LED Cinema Display to your room environment. This gives you the perfect brightness for any situation while using the least amount of energy necessary
Smooth-Motion Hinge
Tilt the LED Cinema Display to get the viewing angle that's best for your work environment. With its smooth-motion hinge, adjustment is effortless. Choose an angle anywhere from -5° to 25°

Plug-and-Play Perfection

Works with Every New Mac
You can connect your LED Cinema Display to any of the current lineup of Mac notebooks and desktop computers: MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, Mac mini, and Mac Pro. That's because the LED Cinema Display uses the ultracompact Mini DisplayPort connector. While other display connectors have you lining up pins or fumbling with screws, the Mini DisplayPort connector is easy in, easy out. And because it carries both video and audio, there's one less cable to worry about
MagSafe Connector
The LED Cinema Display includes a MagSafe connector that powers and charges your MacBook, MacBook Pro, or MacBook Air. The connector sits on your desk, ready and waiting. No need to unwind the cord to the power adapter that came with your notebook. Leave it exactly where it is, in your bag
Three USB 2.0 Ports
On the back of the display, you'll find three self-powered USB ports. You enable them -- along with the built-in iSight camera, microphone, and speakers -- the moment you plug the USB connector into your Mac with Mini DisplayPort. Connect a printer, camera, iPod, iPhone, whatever you like. And they can stay connected -- charging your iPod or iPhone -- even if you grab your notebook and go or shut down for the night

The Greenest Apple Display Ever

Free of Harmful Toxins
One thing that makes the LED Cinema Display so remarkable is what it lacks. Namely, environmentally harmful mercury. And like the latest iPod, iPhone, and Mac computers, the glass used in the display is arsenic-free. Even the cables and components are BFR- and PVC-free
Highly Recyclable
Because of its glass and aluminum construction, the LED Cinema Display is highly recyclable. So when you eventually part with it, it can be remade into something new
Energy Efficient
The LED Cinema Display is designed to be energy efficient right out of the box. It uses mercury-free, energy-efficient LED backlight technology and an ambient light sensor that dims automatically to save energy and provide more comfortable viewing in less brightly lit rooms. It also features a highly efficient power supply to minimize the power wasted when bringing electricity from the wall for the display and to charge your Mac notebook
EPEAT Gold and ENERGY STAR 5.0 Qualification
The LED Cinema Display meets the stringent low power requirements set by the EPA, giving it ENERGY STAR 5.0 qualification. ENERGY STAR 5.0 sets significantly higher efficiency limits for power supplies and aggressive limits for the display's typical annual power consumption. In addition, it has earned EPEAT Gold status for its responsible manufacture, energy efficiency, and recyclability
