Chicago - NEC Display Solutions of America, a stand-alone provider of commercial LCD and plasma displays and projectors, has launched its new 24-inch MultiSync EA241WM widescreen LCD monitor and 19-inch MultiSync EA191M standard-format LCD monitor.
These are the third and fourth MultiSync EA Series products to be introduced, following the launch of the 26-inch EA261WM in June and 22-inch EA221WM in September.
The wide-format MultiSync EA241WM is a premium enterprise display that features a 1000:1 contrast ratio, 400 cd/m² brightness, and full 1080p high-definition 1920x1200 native resolution. Its widescreen design complements the growing trend of wide-format applications and helps users realize greater productivity, especially when viewing spreadsheets and working simultaneously in multiple/side-by-side application windows.
The MultiSync EA191M, a standard-format (5:4 aspect ratio) desktop display boasting a PVA panel, boasts a 1500:1 contrast ratio, four-way ergonomic capabilities (height, swivel, tilt, pivot), and integrated speakers.
The EA191M features a native resolution of 1280x1024 and brightness of 250cd/m². As with its other EA Series models, NEC has registered the MultiSync EA241WM and EA191M displays as EPEAT Gold and Silver, respectively.
As an EPEAT requirement, both displays are also Energy Star-compliant. Products that earn the Energy Star designation prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy-efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.
The displays will be available for shipment this month at an estimated street price of $549 and $379, respectively.
