NEC has announced its new 30-inch MultiSync LCD3090 monitor, designed with graphic designers, photographers, and CAD/CAM users in mind.
The widescreen monitor features a four megapixel (2,560 x 1,600) wide gamut LCD, and offers premium colour performance (which has been a problem on LCD monitors in the past, and is why many designers have stuck with traditional CRT monitors).
The display can produce 102% of the NTSC colour scale (97.8% of AdobeRGB), auto luminance control with X-Light Pro backlight/sensor for consistent brightness and colour, ColorComp technology to provide even colour across the screen, and an IPS active matrix LCD offering wide viewing angles, lifelike flesh tones, and dark black levels.
It also features HDCP, the high definition copy protection standard, which means it can be used for displaying and working on protected high definition content.
Exact pricing and availability are to be confirmed, but don’t expect it to be cheap.
