Introduction
Whether you are generating ad layouts, editing film, or decoding a genetic sequence,
Apple provides the definitive system to maximize your creativity and efficiency. Thanks
to Apple’s powerful dual processor Power Mac G5 line and Mac OS X, the world’s most
advanced operating system, you can run more applications simultaneously with
exceptional reliability and speed. Apple’s elegant flat-panel displays complete the fluid,
integrated experience.
Building on our commitment to maximizing your productivity, Apple now provides a
stunning new window into your work: the 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display. With a
larger workspace than any other Apple display, it represents the latest in a series of
breakthroughs from Apple aimed at providing you with the ideal creative system.
While other displays are designed to help suppliers maximize manufacturing efficiencies, the Apple Cinema Display line is designed from the ground up with the professional Macintosh user in mind. Apple carefully considers the requirements of creative
professionals who need to see two-page layouts at full size with room for palettes and
menus, HD video content at full resolution, or complex genetic sequences.
Apple pioneered the move to LCD technology in 2001 with an award-winning line of
all-digital active-matrix flat-panel displays, and has been building the industry’s most
innovative, elegant displays ever since. Based on the industry’s best LCD technology,
the Apple Cinema Display line delivers performance that is measurably superior to
that of any CRT-based display. And, when compared with other LCD options, the
Apple line stands out due to its wide-aspect design, DVI connector, integrated FireWire
and USB ports, and the amazing attention to detail of the ultrathin bezel, brushed
aluminum enclosure, and adjustable stand.
There are three models in Apple’s flat-panel display line. The 20-inch Apple Cinema
Display features Apple’s innovative widescreen format, offering a large workspace for
creative, home, and business users. The 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display is ideal for
customers working with multipage layouts and video, while the breakthrough 30-inch
Apple Cinema HD Display meets the needs of the most demanding professional users,
offering more screen real estate than virtually any other desktop monitor on the market. All three provide the most advanced technology of any flat panel available today.
If you’re purchasing a new Power Mac G5 computer, an Apple flat-panel display completes your system. If you already have a Power Mac and a CRT, consider upgrading to
one of these superior-quality, space-saving displays. Or if you already use a flat-panel
display, add a second one to your Power Mac for the ultimate in productivity. And if
you have a PowerBook G4, an Apple display can extend your workspace even further.1

Choosing an Apple Display
Which Apple display is right for you? Although individual needs can vary widely, here
are some typical ways in which people can use the different models.
The 20-inch Apple Cinema Display
The 20-inch Apple Cinema Display makes high-resolution, widescreen viewing more
affordable than ever. This is a truly professional display for Power Mac, PowerBook, and
PC users that measures up to the most color-critical work. With its 1680-by-1050-pixel
resolution, this flat-panel LCD is an ideal alternative to a bulky CRT monitor. In fact,
despite having only a fraction of the size, weight, and power consumption of a
comparable 21-inch CRT, this display provides the same amount of workspace.
• The 20-inch Apple Cinema Display is ideal for page layout. You can view a two-page
spread and keep tools and palettes handy at all times in applications such as Adobe
InDesign and QuarkXPress. The display’s digital design ensures that the colors you see
onscreen are the colors you’ll get on paper.
• With Apple Final Cut Express software, you can deliver a professional-quality business
video or edit footage from a family event. The wide-format design of the Apple Cinema
Display allows you to see both your source and destination video windows simultaneously, as well as more of your timeline than on a standard non-wide-format screen.
• Small business users will appreciate being able to view more of a spreadsheet, finance
report, or database record in applications like Microsoft Office and Intuit QuickBooks.
• Gamers will love the bright colors and detailed game environments possible with the
Apple Cinema Display. The graphics cards available in Power Mac G5 computers allow
games to be played at high resolutions with virtually no degradation in frame rates.
• This display is ideal for home users surfing the web with Apple’s Safari browser. With
desktop workspace equivalent to that of a 21-inch CRT, you can have multiple browser
windows open simultaneously. You can keep up on the latest news or shop online—
without having to constantly toggle between windows.

The 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display
The 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display has enough resolution to support highdefinition video content with room to spare, and it is ideal for color-critical work.
This display delivers superb color in resolutions of up to 1920 by 1200 pixels. You
can put it to work designing magazine layouts, editing film, or analyzing the latest
protein molecule.
• Video editors using Apple’s Final Cut Pro HD software can view multiple video and
timeline windows on the 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display. Its wide-format screen
can display an entire high-definition video frame with ease or show multiple standarddefinition videos at full size simultaneously. Using the new Digital Cinema Desktop
feature of Final Cut Pro HD, you can play back full-screen HD video on the Apple
Cinema HD Display, giving you superb image quality for a fraction of the cost of
typical HD monitors. Add an interface from eCinema Systems, and you can even use
the 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display to view high-definition serial digital interface
(HD SDI) signals used in broadcast television environments at their true intended
resolution, something not possible even with expensive broadcast-grade CRT-based
monitors.
• Scientific research demands high resolution and responsiveness from a computer
display, both of which are specialties of the 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display.
• The 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display makes laying out multiple-page spreads a
pleasure, with easy access to all the tools and palettes you need in applications such
as Adobe Creative Suite. Designed with a pure digital interface to deliver distortionfree images and enable precision editing, this display excels at handling even the most
color-critical work.

The 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display
The 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display delivers an amazing 2560-by-1600-pixel
resolution—it’s the largest LCD ever created for a personal computer. Designed
specifically for the creative professional, this display provides more space for easier
access to all the tools and palettes needed to edit, format, and composite your work.
Combine it with the stability and advanced capabilities of Mac OS X, and you can
be more productive in more applications, from page layout to video editing and
DVD authoring.
With a viewing space that can only be described as vast—the 30-inch display offers a
77 percent increase in screen real estate even when compared with the 23-inch Apple
Cinema HD Display—text remains sharp and distortion-free, and colors are vivid from
edge to edge.
• Graphics and publishing professionals won’t find a display better suited to their needs.
It provides ample room to view more of your work than you ever thought possible. It’s
perfect for manipulating large graphics, permitting high-performance image editing in
gorgeous, richly saturated colors.
• Combine the 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display with Apple’s Final Cut Pro HD, Motion,
and Shake software, and you have a video and visual effects powerhouse. Its wideformat screen can display an entire high-definition video frame with ease or show
multiple standard-definition videos at full size simultaneously. It also works with the
eCinema Systems interface, allowing you to view HD SDI signals.
• Scientific and technical users will appreciate being able to visualize more of their
work, whether they are simulating protein folding or analyzing detailed imagery
obtained from a scanning electron microscope.
The 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display requires the NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL
graphics card, the most advanced graphics engine available for a personal computer.
This card, designed specifically to support the dual-link DVI connection, delivers
2560-by-1600-pixel resolution. Not only does it drive a single 30-inch Apple Cinema
HD Display, but it also supports two 30-inch displays, giving you the ultimate
creative canvas.
