PRESS RELEASE: NEC MultiSync Brand Turns 25 Years Old, Tops 40 Million Monitors Shipped
Company Extends Desktop Monitor Warranty to Five Years in Limited-time Celebration Offer
RSNA 2010 -- CHICAGO -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the 25th anniversary of its award-winning MultiSync® monitor brand. Millions of computer users – from graphic designers to medical technicians, business professionals and financial traders to consumers – have benefited from NEC innovations introduced to the marketplace under the brand. Concurrent to its Silver Anniversary, MultiSync-branded displays have reached another milestone: 40 million units shipped.
“People forget that in 1985, the same year that Microsoft released Windows 1.0 and Intel introduced a 16 MHz processor, NEC unveiled a monitor brand that has enriched the computing experience of millions and millions of people around the globe,” said Pierre Richer, President and C.O.O. of NEC Display Solutions. “Of particular significance are the breadth of performance and innovation that NEC has contributed through the brand for more than a generation. For example, MultiSync was one of the first future-ready computer peripherals in history. It didn’t force users to change monitors when they upgraded their computers.”
MultiSync-branded monitors have set the industry benchmark for display quality, reliability and durability as evidenced by the numerous Best of Show, Readers’ Choice and Editors’ Choice Awards received in its history.
As a thank-you to its long-time customers as well as newcomers to the MultiSync legacy, NEC is extending its desktop monitor standard limited warranties to five years for only $25. From December 1, 2010, to March 31, 2011, users who purchase any new NEC MultiSync desktop monitor (between 17 inches and 30 inches) can take advantage of this offer.
