Lookup tables galore in NEC's new professional display

NEC's new professional monitor has plenty of exciting lookup tables!

Meanwhile, on Vulcan... NEC

You really can't go a couple of months without NEC announcing a new professional display, huh? Well, at least they keep me busy (as if I needed that).

This week, NEC announced the successor to its MultiSync 90 series of professional displays, the Multisync PA241W. The display features 102 percent coverage of NTSC and 99.3 percent of Adobe RGB standards. According to NEC, this is an increase from 72 percent in the MultiSync LCD2490WUXi². NEC also claims a 38 percent smaller footprint size.

Below is a list of features included in the MultiSync PA241W:

  • 1,920 x 1,200 native resolution in 16:10 aspect ratio
  • 10-bit IPS LCD panel with 14-bit lookup table
  • 360 cd/m² brightness
  • 1,000:1 contrast ratio
  • 10-bit DisplayPort, DVI-Dx2 with HDCP and USB hub
  • Ergonomic stand with tilt, swivel, height adjust and pivot
  • DisplaySync Pro, which controls two computers with one keyboard and mouse
  • 3D lookup table, which NEC says enables accurate representation of hard-to-match color spaces
  • ICC profile emulation, which loads ICC color profiles to accurately support manufacturer color spaces
  • Color Vision Emulation, which allows a quick preview of colors that emulate color vision problems
  • Ambient light sensor and automatic backlight adjustment for use in any lighting condition
  • Carbon footprint meter, which allows users to easily track carbon savings

The MultiSync PA241W is now available with an estimated street price of $1,079 and ships with a 4-year parts and labor warranty, including the backlight. NEC says additional models in the MultiSync PA Series will be announced throughout 2010, including models with SpectraViewIIT Color Calibration Solution.
