NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display of America Inc. today announced a new 1280×1024 pixel 18-inch flat panel LCD display, the NEC MultiSync LCD1880SX. The display sports a host of advanced capabilities including the ability to hook up to 100 meters away from a central system.
The new LCD1880SX also includes support for Display Data Channel/Command Interface (DDC/CI), which enables network administrators or system managers to perform remote diagnostics on the display through a local area network or signal cable. CableComp is NEC-Mitsubishi’s term for the technology that enables the display to offer graphics up to 100 meters from its computer without degrading the image — the company claims that the technology compensates for video signal delays and irregular RGB transmissions.
The LCD1880SX sports an ultra thin frame that measures less than 13mm on all sides, a 28 percent reduction over previous NEC thin-frame LCD models. It’s available in white with a brushed aluminum bezel or black, as well. The LCD1880SX sports a viewing angle of 170 degrees horizontally, 85 degrees from the center of the display. It pivots, too.
The new monitor features auto black level adjustment and a response time of 33ms, which NEC-Mitsubishi claims eliminates ghosting and image trailing. “AutoBright” is the company’s term for the monitor’s built-in automatic brightness intensity level adjustment. The display also features an automatic power-off timer and an efficient backlight, which NEC-Mitsubishi said, reduces power consumption and heat generation.
The LCD1880SX features triple inputs: DVI-I for digital or analog input; a DVI-D connector for digital-only input; and a 15-pin VGA connector for analog-only input.
The LCD1880SX sports an estimated retail price of US$1,299.
