The native resolution is 1280 x 1024 and the screen has VGA and DVI connectivity. Contrast ratio for the screen is 900:1 and it has a 5ms response time. The display is EPEAT silver rated and has Energy Star 5.0 and TCO 5.0 ratings.

NEC PA241W LCD for design pros ships

Posted in NEC by Shane McGlaun on February 2nd, 2010

Years ago, I worked for a company that had its own marketing department. The people there were always complaining because the colors they saw on the screen of the computer wasn’t what printed out on the printer. This can be a big issue for designers and NEC has a new screen specifically for these users.

The screen is called the PA241W and is 24-inches with a 1920 x 1200 resolution. The big thing about the LCD is the 10-bit IPS panel with 14-bit lookup table that allows for billions of possible colors. NEC says the screen is good for 102% of the NTSC color gamut and 99.3% of the Adobe RGB gamut.

Translator glasses: See what other people are saying

Translator glasses: See what other people are sayingA device that automatically translates other languages instantly still seems like science fiction, even today. But we are getting very close. Check out NEC’s Tele Scouter. It’s a retinal-display that translates what people say to you by displaying the translations as text on your glasses.

It looks pretty bulky still, but even at that size it is impressive. It requires a computer to be hooked up to the glasses to do the bulk of the work. And even then, the translations aren’t good enough yet to make wearing this thing practical. But soon it will be.

Posted in NEC by Conner Flynn on October 27th, 2009

NEC Android business tablet to drop in Japan this fall?We don’t have much info. Just a small image and a few specs at the moment, but it looks like NEC is working on a mobile business tablet PC that looks to be Android based. The touchscreen tablet has a 7- to 8-inch LCD display and NEC is apparently predicting that they’ll eventually ship over 1m of the UMPCs each year. So they seem pretty confident.

We don’t even have a name for the device yet, but it’s set to go on sale in Japan this fall. NEC is boasting that it’s a fast-booting device with heavy use of cloud-storage and cloud-computing “capable as a personal computer”.

NEC announces new 22-inch LCD for color-critical use

Posted in NEC by Shane McGlaun on October 24th, 2008

NEC P221W LCDIn some environments it is imperative that the color you see on screen is the color you get when a finished design in printed. Graphic artists for instance can’t have a deep red coming out looking like pink when a brochure is printed. Photographers also need to be sure that the color they see on the screen is what the printed pictures look like.

NEC has announced a new display made especially for this type of environment. The P221W has an optional NEC SpectraView calibration kit that is available. The LCD covers 96% of the AdobeRGB color gamut and has internal programmable 10-bit lookup tables. I’m not sure what a lookup table is, but it sounds cool.

NEC’s Liquid Flask Phone shows you “the juice”

NEC’s Liquid Flask Phone shows you “the juice”
This is the most convenient way to see how much “juice” remains in a device. Juice being battery life and in this case battery life being displayed with liquid. We don’t have many details, but this flask phone from NEC looks like it is liquid-powered and touch-screened. This one is so far out there that it must be a prototype.

According to NEC, it’s going to be released sometime in 2008, if you can believe that. It doesn’t get much cooler then being able to watch the liquid inside drain as you’re using the phone, so you can see how much power you have left. (Okay, that’s a lame hobby. But the concept is awesome.) Hopefully it will be available here in the U.S. The colors are obviously very woman friendly.
