Rapid Response™
Delivers virtually uninterrupted, undistorted viewing of high-speed, full-motion video.
Kensington Lock
Enables a security cable to be attached to the projector.
AmbiBright™
Automatically adjusts the backlight depending on the brightness of ambient lighting conditions. It also tells the monitor to enter power saving mode whenever the ambient lighting falls below a predetermined value (like when lights are shut off at the end of the day), which can significantly reduce energy consumption.
CableComp™
Equalizes the video signal to eliminate color halos on long cable runs.
Digital Uniformity Compensation
Reduces screen uniformity errors and compensates for differences in color/grayscale and luminance using new signal processing circuitry.
MultiSync P/PA Series Picture by Picture
Displays a either second video source or the same video source in an window beside the main video source. The Picture by Picture window can display the video source in the same or an alternate color space.
MultiSync P/PA Series Picture in Picture
Displays a either second video source or the same video source in an adjustable sub-window over the main video source. The Picture in Picture window can display the video source in the same or an alternate color space.p>
DisplaySync Pro
DisplaySync Pro is a type of KVM (keyboard, video, mouse) switch. It allows multiple computers to be connected to the monitor through USB and share the attached USB devices, such as a keyboard and mouse, saving desktop space and increasing productivity.

3D LUT
Internal 14-bit programmable 3D lookup tables (LUTs) allow the display of 1.07 billion colors out of a palette of 4.3 trillion (with 10-bit DisplayPort input) for accurate color, smooth images and hardware calibration.
Ambix4™
Allows up to four inputs (DisplayPort, VGA and two DVI-D) to be connected to a single monitor and for each of the four signals to be displayed with the press of a button.
XtraView+™
Delivers wide viewing angles of up to 178º horizontally and vertically (up to 89º up, down, left and right) with less color shift and without any glare, reflection or distortion.
Auto Image Rotation
Automatic rotation of the displayed image based on the orientation of the monitor head

Yes, the MultiSync PA Series models ship with a cable that can plug into a Thunderbolt port on your Mac and into the DisplayPort port on the monitor. This is the best connection for this configuration.
The MultiSync PA series use a dedicated color processor (SpectraView Engine) that can perform full 3D color gamut transforms to a high color bit-depth internally in the display. This coupled with the individual unit factory measurement and internal stabilization means that very accurate color gamut transforms can be done with no loss in image quality. Compared to many standard color gamut displays, these models are actually capable of proving a more accurate sRGB because they are able to cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut. Many standard color gamut displays do not actually cover 100% of the sRGB color gamut.
Yes, but you will not be able to display the full native resolution. These displays require a Dual Link DVI connection in order to support the full resolutions of 2560x1440 and 2560x1600 respectively. A Mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable or dongle can also be used to connect to the DisplayPort input.
