NEC-Mitsubishi sees applications for the new display in conference rooms, airports, public info kiosks, retail locations, financial exchanges, and trade shows — locations where viewers need to see charts, advertisements, and other data clearly from a distance. The monitor sports 450 cd/m2 brightness and a contrast ratio of 350:1. It operates at a 25ms refresh, which the manufacturer said eliminates “ghosting” or “image trailing” for full-motion video.
The LCD3000 can accept input from a wide range of sources. It has a DVI-D connector, along with 15-pin mini D-sub, BNC VGA, composite video, component video, S-Video and NTSC connectors.
The LCD3000 is wired with a Display Data Channel/Command Interface (DDC/CI) cable and an RS-232 connector, so it can be used by remote diagnostics and control systems. It also operates up to about 100 meters (or 326 feet) from a computer using NEC-Mitsubishi’s CableComp technology, which reduces image degradation on long cables and compensates for video signal delays.
The LCD3000 has a viewing angle of 170 degrees horizontally and vertically. It weights about 35 pounds.
Expect to see the NEC LCD3000 hit stores in the fourth quarter. The display carries an estimated street price of US$4,299.
