NEC Display Solutions Launches 26- and 30-inch Desktop Displays and New Spectraview Kit

CHICAGO -- NEC Display Solutions of America announced the 26-inch MultiSync LCD2690W2-BK-SV and 30-inch LCD3090W-BK-SV widescreen displays with SpectraViewIIT color calibration sensor and software, as well as the new SpectraViewII Kit (SVII-PRO-KIT), which enhances select models of NEC displays.

The SpectraViewII Color Calibration Solution combines the two award-winning displays with a color measurement sensor and sophisticated software. The result is a highly accurate, reliable, repeatable and feature-rich display calibration and profiling solution. The SpectraViewII system, available for Mac OS and Windows, uses a custom-calibrated, co-branded colorimeter based on the iOne Display 2 from X-Rite, to take color measurements of the display screen during calibration.

The software analyzes these measurements and sends color adjustment commands directly to the display monitor, allowing the full color resolution and fidelity of the system to be maintained. The new sensor is custom manufactured and matched for wide color gamut displays, like the recently introduced MultiSync LCD2690WUXi² and LCD3090WQXi, in order to provide the most precise measurements possible with a colorimeter device. The sensor is also compatible with standard gamut LCD displays.

"The new MultiSync LCD2690W2-BK-SV, LCD3090W-BK-SV and SVII-PRO-KIT deliver the most advanced technologies for enhanced desktop color performance," said Will Hollingworth, Senior Manager of Software Development for NEC Display Solutions. "When combined with the SpectraViewII Color Calibration Solution, select NEC LCD displays revolutionize the way flat-panel monitors can be used. With its multitude of award-winning and leading-edge capabilities, the two new displays and accompanying SpectraViewII Kit deliver advanced functionality that could easily be considered the most intelligent visual display solutions to date."

The MultiSync LCD2690W2-BK-SV, LCD3090W-BK-SV and SVII-PRO-KIT are designed for users in the graphic design, digital animation, photography, print production, image analysis and CAD/CAM industries, as well as soft-copy clinical viewing in the medical field. The benefits of using SpectraViewII with an NEC LCD display include:

Three internal 12-bit look-up tables (LUTs), which allow precise adjustments to be made to the display's tone response curve with minimal reduction to the number of displayable colors

Fully automated calibration, which makes adjustments directly in the display hardware, allowing optimal settings to be configured without any user interaction

Multiple calibration sets, which enable quick and easy switching between different calibration settings without the need to re-calibrate the display

Calibrated display information, which shows the results of the calibration, including the measured color gamut, grayscale color tracking, Delta-E and luminance values

Calibration status validation, whereby SpectraViewII queries the system to see if any controls have changed since the last calibration and restores to the previous calibrated state

Monitor locking, which allows the On Screen Display (OSD) controls to lock the monitor once calibrated to prevent accidental or unauthorized adjustments

Monitor profiling, which allows the monitor to be automatically profiled after calibration, generating a highly accurate ICC/ColorSync color profiles

Colorimeter function, which allows direct measurements to be taken by the color sensor and the results displayed in a variety of formats

The MultiSync LCD2690W2-BK-SV and LCD3090W-BK-SV displays are wide-gamut, widescreen LCDs featuring ColorCompT technology, which reduces LCD uniformity errors by compensating for differences in color/grayscale and luminance across the screen area.
