IPS LCD panel reproduces an easy-to-view picture with wide viewing angle

IPS LCD panel reproduces an easy-to-view picture
with wide viewing angleThe IPS (In-Plane-Switching) LCD panel suppresses colour change even when viewed f rom an angle, and maintains high resolut ion display wi th a wide viewing angle, makingit suited to situations where several people view the screen from various angles. An easy-to-view picture is reproduced and image sharing is possible.

Equipped with a Feedback Sensor for accurate adjustment

The internal accurate Feedback Sensor makes possible high a ccuracy adjustment to the desired display characteristics even without an external colour sensor. Additionally, the brightness stabilisation circuit automatically compensates for brightness instability generatedat power-up, stabilising brightness within seconds so you can get to work right away.

NEC colour emulation that doesn't require colour management compatible software

ICC Profile Emulation feature

ICC Profile Emulation featureThe newly developed MultiProfiler allows many various ICC profiles to be reflected in the display, making possible high resolution colour reproduction even without colour management compatible software. Simple operation can set to colour gamuts such as sRGB or Adobe®RGB, and colour matching with third-party monitors is also supported.

MultiProfiler is free software downloadable here.

Uniformity Correction feature improves brightness & colour irregularities

Uniformity Correction featureMura across an image can occur due to the LCD panel manufacturing process, and the locations and conditions of such irregularities differ for each screen. The Irregularity Correction feature can correct these irregularities, enabling use of the full screen as a work space and automatically adjusting to the optimal conditions to meet the environment and monitor settings. Irregularity correction as well as gamma adjustment are also tailored to each individual monitor, allowing for minimal variance between units.
