Although this week’s WinHEC conference in New Orleans, La. is a setting for Windows hardware engineering firms to show off their latest efforts,
NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display of America Inc.
is using the event to show off prototypes of its new flat panel desktop displays that may be of future interest to Mac professionals.
The new 22-inch displays come in both LCD and CRT-based variations, and sport “ultra-wide” color gamut, according to the manufacturer.
NEC-Mitsubishi director of product development Kirt Yanke explained that the new displays were developed in response to the requests of imaging professionals to develop monitors with a wide gamut display. Yanke said that the new displays consistently reproduce the subtle tones in photographs and renderings.
The new 22-inch CRT is designed for high-end graphics applications like professional digital still camera work and imaging. The display supports Adobe RGB at 93 percent color gamut for NTSC. The new 22-inch LCD monitor prototype sports a color gamut that exceeds 100 percent for NTSC and a maximum brightness of more than 600 cd/m2.
Details on pricing or release schedules of the new monitors — display at the show as prototypes only — were not immediately available.
