NEC Launch Two New Monitors - NEC has launched two new models into its SpectraView monitor range.
NEC Display has added two new additions to its SpectraView range at Photokina.
The NEC SpectraView 232 and NEC SpectraView 271 are 23- and 27-inch Professional Colour Displays, ideal for all creative professionals, designers, photographers, precision engineers and other users for whom colour accuracy is critical.
The new additions to the acclaimed NEC SpectraView range maintain benchmark standards in all fields of colour editing and visualisation, delivering uncompromising contour sharpness, colour reproduction and luminance. True colours are delivered through a wide colour gamut of 75% coverage AdobeRGB with the SpectraView 232, and unparalleled coverage of the Adobe RGB colour space in the case of the SpectraView 271 thanks to 98% coverage.
Both displays boast an IPS panel, a 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution (1920 x 1080 for the SpectraView 232) and internal 14-bit programmable 3D lookup tables (LUTs) for 42-bit colour control and gamma correction, irrespective of colour and input. The SpectraView 271 with its 10-bit p-IPS panel is able to display 1.07 billion colours out of a palette of 4.3 trillion when using the 10-bit DisplayPort input and provides the widest viewing angles available with minimal off-angle colour shift. The SpectraView 232 has an IPS 16:9 TFT display for consistent colour viewing. The SpectraView 232 is also NEC’s first colour critical display based on LED backlighting technology.
Utilising a full complement of connectivity options including DisplayPort and two DVI inputs (DisplayPort, HDMI and one DVI for the SV232), these displays deliver enhanced productivity and multi-platform working options through picture-in-picture support and an integrated USB hub for connecting peripherals and other video inputs.
Both displays are not only picture perfect, but suitable for long and intensive working days with 150mm height adjustment and portrait rotation capability, and IPS viewing angle stability.
In keeping with NEC's environmental commitments, the effective cabinet and stand design allows for a reduced packaging footprint compared to similar displays. Combined with the carbon savings counter, the built-in ECO Mode allows responsible energy usage and at the same time motivates and informs the user about their usage behaviour. The SpectraView® 271 uses as little as 1.4W in Power Savings Mode whilst the SpectraView® 232 uses just 1W.
Both monitors are available from September 2012. For more information, visit the NEC website.
