NEC Display Solutions of America has announced several updates to its professional display portfolio, including the addition of the new 27-in. MultiSync PA271W display to the MultiSync PA Series, the first release of the MultiProfiler display configuration application, and SpectraViewII version 1.1.04, which adds support for the 24-in. MultiSync PA241W and the new MultiSync PA271W.
The MultiSync PA271W is a high-definition monitor designed for environments where color accuracy is critical. Boasting a 10-bit p-IPS panel, a 2560-x-1440 pixel resolution and internal 14-bit programmable 3D lookup tables (LUTs), the MultiSync PA271W can display 1.07 billion colors out of a palette of 4.3 trillion when using the 10-bit DisplayPort input. According to the company, it provides wide viewing angles with minimal off-angle color shift using XtraView+T technology.
The new MultiProfiler application provides control over several features. The application includes Picture Mode preset configuration, which uses the SpectraViewII Engine in all MultiSync PA Series displays to allow multiple color modes to be quickly configured based on gamma characteristics, color gamut, white point, and brightness for applications such as real-time print preview and matching of legacy displays. The picture-in-picture (PIP) configuration allows two video signals to be viewed simultaneously in a secondary PIP or picture-by-picture (PBP) window configuration. MultiProfiler also allows users to manage the monitor’s USB hub and map the various monitor inputs, such as multiple computers attached to one display. The automatic generation of ICC profiles by MultiProfiler aids users when switching between or adjusting color modes. MultiProfiler is compatible with Apple Mac OS 10.3.9 or higher and Microsoft Windows 2000, XP, Vista, and Windows 7.
The new release of SpectraViewII version 1.1.04 brings the complete color calibration solution for NEC displays to the MultiSync PA Series. In addition, the arrival of two new SpectraViewII models, the 24-in. PA241W-BK-SV and 27-in. PA271W-BK-SV, offer a 1000:1 contrast ratio and up to 360 cd/m² of brightness. Their screens cover more than 97 percent of AdobeRGB, more than 92 percent of NTSC, and 100 percent of sRGB, according to the company. Connectivity for these models includes DisplayPort, two DVI-D inputs, and a USB hub.
The MultiSync PA271W is available for May 2010 shipment with an estimated street price of $1,399 and ships with a 4-year parts and labor warranty, including the backlight. The MultiSync PA241W-BK-SV and PA271W-BK-SV models with SpectraViewII and 4-year warranty are available for May 2010 shipment with an estimated street price of $1,329 and $1,649, respectively. MultiProfiler is complimentary to all MultiSync PA Series customers. The SpectraViewII upgrade is free to download for all current SpectraView customers or for purchase for new customers.
