NEC DISPLAY SOLUTIONS ANNOUNCES 26-INCH DESKTOP DISPLAY WITH SWOP CERTIFICATION
CHICAGO - January 5, 2009
Wide Color Gamut Panel Increases Productivity, Provides Color Uniformity
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of commercial LCD displays and projectors, today announced the new 26-inch MultiSync LCD2690WUXi², a desktop display ideal for graphic arts, desktop publishing, photography and other color-critical environments.

The LCD2690WUXi² can be seen at Macworld Conference and Expo 2009 (NEC Display Solutions Booth, No. 2510) on January 5-9 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Ca.

Derived from the award-winning LCD2690WUXi, the new display has a new wider color gamut panel, delivering expanded blue coverage and improved brightness uniformity. The high-performing MultiSync LCD2690WUXi² aids with productivity, as its wide-format design (16:10 aspect ratio) provides roughly the same work area as two smaller-sized displays, enabling users to work simultaneously in multiple application windows.

“The MultiSync LCD2690WUXi² follows in the footsteps of its companions in the highly successful MultiSync 90 Series,” said Stan Swiderski, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. “With its multitude of leading-edge capabilities, groundbreaking design and vast amount of innovative technologies, the LCD2690WUXi² allows high-end graphics users to achieve the ultimate in color performance.”

The MultiSync LCD2690WUXi² is certified with Specifications for Web Offset Publications (SWOP®) software, assuring users achieve accurate softproof images. The display passed with the ”GRACoL® Grade 1” test, one of the highest level examinations available for SWOP certification.

  • Wide color gamut (97.8% coverage of AdobeRGB)
  • Compatible with the NEC SpectraViewIITM Color Calibration Solution
  • Auto luminance control with X-LightTM Pro backlight/sensor design for consistent brightness and color
  • ColorComp™ technology compensates for slight variations in luminance and color uniformity, providing even color across the screen

  • Supports internal programmable 12-bit lookup tables (LUTs) for calibration
  • Ambient light sensor and automatic backlight adjustment allow for use in any lighting conditions
