NEC announced 22-inch LED-backlit desktop monitor
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today its first ever LED-backlit desktop monitor for business, education, government and healthcare markets, the 22-inch MultiSync® EA222WMe.
LED backlighting technology enables the NEC MultiSync EA222WMe to provide the same amount of brightness as other panel types while using 20% less power. Compared to previous generation NEC LCDs, the EA222WMe consumes up to 52% less power, radiates up to 61% less heat, weighs up to 25% less and uses up to 15% less packaging. The monitor and cables in this eco-friendly display are free of mercury, halogen and arsenic. Additionally, the monitor is compliant with ENERGY STAR 5.0, TCO 5.0 and EPEAT Gold, which solidifies its status as the most energy-efficient desktop monitor offered by NEC.
Users will have the ability to track their carbon savings with the display’s resettable carbon footprint meter, a unique tool that calculates the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. New to NEC’s MultiSync EA Series is the resettable cost meter, which indicates the user’s electricity cost savings via the On Screen Display.
“The combination of these green technologies in the MultiSync EA222WMe points to the future of where the LCD industry is headed,” said Lynn Gu, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. “LED backlight structure has improved tremendously along with cost reduction, and the adoption of the LED backlight technology will continue to accelerate over the next few years.”
The EA222WMe features a full ergonomic stand, which includes 110mm height-adjust, tilt, swivel and pivot functionality that adds flexibility and comfort for any user. With DisplayPort, the monitor provides maximum display performance with a variety of input options that improve resolution and color depths. The ECO ModeTM, along with the Intelligent Power Manager (IPM) system, off timer, ambient light sensor and vacation switch, help conserve energy and reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
The MultiSync EA222WMe includes the following features:
- 16:10 widescreen display with W-LED backlight
- 1680 x 1050 native resolution
- 30,000 dynamic contrast ratio
- 250 cd/m² brightness
