NEC Display Solutions has launched the MultiSync PA231W 23-inch monitor. The display uses an IPS panel that NEC says delivers excellent picture quality in the new 16:9 format (at a resolution of 1,920 x 1,080) and includes sophisticated features such as a DisplayPort connection and ergonomic comfort through height adjustability. It's aimed at creative pros who don't want to break the bank.

The Digital Uniformity Control (ColorComp) automatically regulates the evenness of the brightness and colour distribution, thereby guaranteeing consistent display quality, says NEC. The monitor also features a programmable 3D LUT for precise colour space emulation.

The monitor also comes with an integrated, programmable USB hub that allows flexible connections to multiple PC platforms. As well as DisplayPort, the monitor features VGA and dual digital DVI-D inputs.

The height adjustability of up to 150 mm and the optional landscape or portrait viewing mode mean that the display can be set up to suit the individual user’s specific needs.

The NEC MultiSync PA231W is currently available in black priced at £535.00 plus VAT. The package supplied includes a power cable, one digital DVI-D, one DisplayPort signal cable, one analogue VGA cable, a manual and an installation and driver CD-ROM. NEC Display Solutions Europe offers a three-year warranty including backlights.
