Talk about narrowing the scope on your products targeting. Today, Collins America announced the CinemaView LCD Displays, which sport a native Apple Mini Displayport. Available in 19-inch (1440×900), 20.1-inch (1650×1050), and 24-inch (1920×1080) flavors, each monitor includes 3 USB ports, a pass through stereo audio jack and and all in one cable that connects the aforementioned inputs. Yup, they’ve included all that and something they call a UniFrame Aluminum construction, which oddly sounds like a process used to manufacture the new Macbooks.

CinemaView LCD Displays For Macs Announced
April 14, 2009 – Nashville, Tennessee – For Immediate Release
Today, Collins America announces the world’s first product line of native Mini Displayport connected LCD displays made just for Apple Mac computers. The first three models will be available before September 1st, 2009.
Since Apple transitioned its entire Mac product line to the new Mini Displayport jack for connecting external displays no manufacturer has offered plug-compatible display products. Also, no display maker has adopted Apple’s current industrial design theme of Aluminum, black, and glass in products aesthetically matched to current Macs.
The three initial CinemaView display models are sized at 19-inch at 1440×900 pixels, 20.1-inch at 1650×1050 pixels, and 24-inch at 1920×1080 pixels, and are priced at $299, $399, and $499, respectively. All CinemaView models are manufactured to an extremely high quality standard and include a 3-port powered USB 2.0 hub, a passthrough stereo audio jack, and, an all-in-one cable that connects Mini Displayport, USB 2.0, and stereo audio to the Mac. Their UniFrame™ Aluminum construction precisely matches the design of current Apple computers. And, the entire approach taken in designing the products is aimed to precisely please the most ardent Mac fans.
