NEC announces a pair of monitors
The Japanese display maker NEC has announced two new company monitors – the 24-inch MultiSync PA242W-BK color accurate display and the color critical NEC PA242W-BK-SV display, which features SpectraView II calibration software and sensor. Both monitors are built on GB-R LED backlights with wider color gamut and more color control than conventional white LED backlights.
The PA242W-BK and PA242W-BK-SV are perfect choices for editor work, video editing, pre-press and photography needs and come with 1920 x 1200 resolution as well as a 10-bit color gamut LCD panel for better image quality.
“The PA242W’s greater color gamut and color control provide trusted color reproduction, empowering photographers and other graphics users to focus on their work,” said Art Marshall, Product Manager of professional and medical desktop monitors at NEC Display Solutions. “The simple print matching and built-in KVM feature improve their overall productivity as well.”
The rest of the specs include 340 cd/m2 of brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio, near perfect 99.3 per cent coverage of Adobe RGB and 100 per cent of sRGB color space, an internal 14-bit programmable 3D lookup table (LUT), a built-in USB hub, ICC profile emulation, a comprehensive input panel, a 4-way ergonomic stand, an AmbiBright ambient light sensor and optional accessories.
Both models come with a 4-year warranty and are now available at an estimated USD 1049 price for the PA242W-BK model and USD 1299 for the PA242W-BK-SV model.
