NEC has pulled the wraps off a new professional series LED backlit monitor for computer users. The computer monitor is called the NEC MultiSync P242W. The display comes in two different models including the standard P242W-BK and the P242W-BK-SV. The screen size is 24-inches and the display uses a white LED backlit AH-IPS panel.
Since the display is LED backlit, it consumes less power than older technology displays requiring only 29 watts of power typically. The screen has an integrated ambient light sensor to automatically adjust the brightness depending on lighting conditions. NEC integrates a wide range of connectivity options into the display including HDMI, VGA, DisplayPort, and DVI-D.
The screen is also equipped with a USB DisplaySync Pro KVM feature that allows you to operate two computers using only one mouse and keyboard. The screen also has hardware color calibration features using the NEC SpectraView color calibration solution. The native resolution for the display is 1920 x 1200.
The display panel covers 99.6% of the sRGB color gamut and 75.2% of the NTSC color gamut. The integrated USB 2.0 hub has two upstream ports and three downstream ports. NEC also equips the display with an internal 14-bit 3-D programmable lookup table. The display has a four-way economic stand that adjusts for height, tilt, swivel, and pivot. Users can also turn the screen to portrait mode. The difference between the two models is that the SV comes with the hardware color calibration system. Both versions will be available in May with the standard version selling for $749 and the SV version selling for $999.
