PRESS RELEASE: High-end panel technology with brilliant colour performance: NEC SpectraView® 2490, NEC SpectraView® Reference 2690 and NEC SpectraView® Reference 3090
Munich, 20 April 2009 – NEC Display Solutions is expanding its NEC SpectraView® series with a hardware calibratable widescreen 24” model on the one hand, the NEC SpectraView® 2490, and with the two wide-gamut 2690 and 3090 reference LCD displays on the other hand: new benchmark standards in colour management. The IPS panel for the 2490 satisfies the requirements of top quality professional image processing, as do the H-IPS (horizontal in-plane switching) panels of the 2690 and 3090 models, since IPS panel technology is the best for colour-critical applications. The high 1920 x 1200 and 2560 x 1600 resolutions at 60 Hz (Reference 3090), an AdobeRGB colour-space coverage of up to 107 percent, and very wide and stable viewing angles of 178 degrees allow razor sharp pictures and brilliant colours without any chromatic distortions (colour shifting) whatsoever. In addition, top quality picture reproduction is also supported by the programmable 12-bit LUT (look-up table) for each RGB signal (so enabling 36-bit colour control), gamma correction, and also the X-Light® Pro feature. Whether deployed for media reproduction, digital image processing or in print-workflow, NEC Display Solutions has succeeded in combining into these models outstanding technical performance with excellent economy.
Despite their size, these three models with their high quality IPS or H-IPS panels offer excellent picture quality. Alongside an outstanding resolution, their brightness of up to 400 cd/m2 as well as a contrast ratio of 1000:1 ensures particularly high-quality imaging that is also guaranteed from every perspective by the large 178 degree viewing angles. Alongside the X-Light® Pro function, colour stability is also especially ensured by the digital uniformity control (ColorComp) feature. This automatically regulates in various gradations the distribution uniformity of colour and brightness. The hardware calibration as well as the high colour-space coverage (reaching up to 107 percent of the AdobeRGB colour-space for the two Reference models) also allows extraordinary colour fidelity and therefore the ideal performance characteristics particularly required by colour-critical image processing, such as pre-press, DTP or softproof applications. Individual calibration profiles and parameters can be created using the supplied SpectraView® Profiler 4.1 software developed for the series that can also be activated at any time. The LCD response time of 5 ms in particular also provides an excellent basis for video processing.
Exemplary energy efficiency of the LCD displays is guaranteed by their practical functions such as the EcoModes, the Real Time Clock with Scheduler as well as AutoBright or AmbiBright. Even with these high-end, wide-gamut displays, energy efficiency and a low TCO (total cost of ownership) are still of particular importance. Ergonomic features ensure that long periods of working in front of the displays are made easier. For example, the screen can be height adjusted by up to 150 mm and can also be quickly and simply released from the monitor pedestal by the Quick Release Stand function. The ergonomic functions have also been expanded by the two landscape or portrait viewing modes. Once again NEC Display Solutions is demonstrating its pioneering leadership in providing solutions for particularly colour-critical applications by expanding its SpectraView® series with these three models. Above all, the wide-gamut H-IPS panels are the defining state-of-the-art technology for professional colour management.
