CHICAGO - April 1, 2010
AS231WM Monitor Joins AccuSyncTM Family of Eco-Friendly, Innovative, Cost-Effective Desktops
Building upon its industry position in green technologies, NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today its latest environmentally friendly display, the AccuSync AS231WM LCD monitor. 

Targeted to small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) as well as education and government users, the AS231WM joins four other green monitors in the AccuSync Series (AS171, AS191, AS191WM and AS221WM), which all bear EPEATTM Silver ratings as well as ENERGY STAR® 5.0 and TCO 5.0 compliance.

The AS231WM widescreen display consumes 50 percent less energy and contains 50 percent less mercury content than conventional monitors of the same size.  In addition, ECO ModeTM technology lets end-users toggle between energy-saving modes, helping to significantly reduce power consumption, heat generation and extend the life of the display.

"Coupled with its affordable price point, this 23-inch AccuSync display builds upon NEC's leadership in green technologies," said Lynn Gu, Product Manager of NEC Display Solutions.  "The wide format allows end-users to be more productive by expanding their work area so they can view multiple application windows at the same time. Also, the unique touch-integratable feature empowers diverse business applications."

The AS231WM comes with Ambix® dual-input technology, which allows for digital/analog compatibility with upgraded video cards and software, as well as connections to two systems.  In addition, Rapid ResponseTM technology delivers virtually uninterrupted, undistorted viewing of high-speed, full-motion video.

A partial list of features of the AS231WM display includes:

  • Native resolution of 1920 x 1080
  • 16:9 aspect ratio
  • 1000:1 contrast ratio
