CTL, a company that normally caters to the needs of modern offices or schools in its devices, has announced a pair of monitors touted to match up to this reputation. The 24-inch FHD IP2381 has a VA IPS panel, whereas the IP2781 is an ADS QHD 27-inch display. They both have the same new minimalist stand and bezels, however.

CTL is a company perhaps better known for Chromebooks or Chromeboxes that might be found in an enterprise or educational setting (remote or otherwise); however, it has also just launched new monitors that, as the OEM asserts, are rated to "keep up with any level of productivity".

The IP2381 and IP2781 have the same design, with a metallic, stripped-down-looking T-shaped stand. It supports a tilting range of -5° to 15°, not to mention markedly slim bezels emphasised by flat edges.

However, the 24-inch model has a vertically-aligned (VA) panel with a 1920x1080 resolution, whereas its 27-inch sibling has advanced dimension-switch (ADS) plane-control technology for its 2560x1440 display instead.

CTL claims that this enhances performance in the IP2781. On the other hand, both new monitors share 16:9 aspect ratios, a 1000:1 contrast ratio and AMD FreeSync for advanced refresh-rate control for graphics-intensive tasks such as following presentations or videos.

The new CTL monitors also have 89° viewing angles, both in their horizontal and vertical orientations, in common. They have 2 HDMI ports each, although the IP2781 is the only one with a DisplayPort.

CTL's latest monitors are up for pre-order from now, at prices of US$189 for the IP2381, and $229 for the IP2781. Alternatively, a buyer could contact CTL for bulk orders or to bundle them with its Chromebox models to complete a new PC fleet for work or school.
