NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the latest additions to its award-winning MultiSync PA Series of displays. The 27-inch PA272W color accurate display and PA272W color critical display with SpectraViewII calibration software and sensor come in both white and black cabinets.
The redesigned monitors are built on GB-R LED backlights, which mean that the PA272W provides a wider color gamut and more color control than a conventional white LED backlight, and consumes 37 percent less power than comparable CCFL backlights.
"The PA272W gives professionals in color-critical jobs a great tool to improve their workflow and achieve more daily successes," said Art Marshall, Product Manager of Professional and Medical Desktop Monitors at NEC Display Solutions. "In addition, the factory calibration can now be updated using an external sensor for those users who have SpectraViewII, for even more effective color control."
The 27-inch monitor is designed with a fully ergonomic stand and features a 2560 x 1440 resolution. Its 10-bit wide color gamut AH-IPS LCD panel provides the accurate, vibrant colors professionals require. It also showcases the time-saving features common to the MultiSync PA Series displays, including the ability to load ICC profiles to emulate custom color spaces and easily match prints.
In addition, the free MultiProfiler software, exclusive to the MultiSync P & PA Series, provides easy-to-use control over most display settings, including print matching with Picture Mode presets as well as Picture in Picture and Picture by Picture window configurations. MultiProfiler also allows users to manage the monitor's USB hub and enables keyboard shortcuts for changing inputs and Picture Modes.

10-bit active matrix AH-IPS panel with GB-R backlight and no-sparkle, antiglare coating
