23 to 30 inches
The PA series comes in four models from 23 to 30 inches, all featuring the IPS technology:
23-inch PA231W: 16:9 display with 1920x1080 resolution
24-inch PA241W: 16:10 display with 1920x1200 resolution
27-inch PA271W: 16:9 display with 2560x1440 resolution
30-inch PA301W: 16:10 display with 2560x1600 resolution
The PA series, announced for the start of 2010 features the IPS technology as well as offering a 3D-LUT (Look up table) for optimal colour control, 10-bit LCD panels, Picture in Picture function, integrated USB hub and the future-proof DisplayPort interface.
The PA series also cuts a fine figure with its innovative design — both in terms of appearance and eco-friendliness. The ultra-narrow display frame creates an appealingly clean and minimalist look and makes the models a real eye-catcher on any workstation, NEC says.
Consistent with NECâ€™s Green Vision, the PA series employs a design for particularly eco-friendly manufacturing and logistics, as well as offering transparent carbon reporting NEC states. And one of the upcoming models has already been awarded with the iF product design award 2010.
NEC has been using the IPS technology for several years now in mid-end and high-end monitors. The IPS technology has true colours and has the best LCD viewing angles. The IPS technology has some problems with real black reproductions, however.
The new PA-series has been rewarded with the International Forum Award; iF product design award 2010.
- â€śThe models in the PA series set the new reference for the professional desktop sector, in both technology and design,â€ť says Christopher Parker, Product Line Manager for Professional Displays at NEC Display Solutions. â€śOur customers have always demanded high-end IPS technology and our NEC engineers are always delighted in meeting the challenge and fulfilling their requirements and more.â€ť
