NEC Solutions America has announced a new line of 42-inch, 50-inch and 61-inch XGA native resolution plasma displays. The PlasmaSync 42XM2, 50XM3 and 61XM2 are designed for use in conference rooms and for broadcast and multimedia applications.
All include NEC’s Capsulated Color Filter technology that offers realistic color reproduction and AccuCrimson technology that creates the “purest reds possible in a plasma display,” according to NEC. The monitor’s MASS technology is designed to eliminate jagged lines and correct color bleeds. Enhanced scan conversion technology offers text clarity with small font sizes and 3/2 pulldown enhances the appearance of content originally produced in film.
The displays’ color tune technology allows for individual color adjustments without altering the white balance, and gamma technology. All can be configured in either a 2 x 2 or a 3 x 3 matrix without an external processor. The units come equipped with 9W x 9W stereo audio (8W x 8W for the 42XM2) and a programmable timer. The 42XM2, 50XM3 and 61XM2 run at 22dB and can be wall-mounted. What’s more, they can operate in either portrait or landscape orientation.
All three displays are now shipping. The PlasmaSync 42XM2 has a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of US$6,495; the PlasmaSync 50XM3 is $9,995 and the PlasmaSync 61XM2 costs $19,995.
The monitors’ resolutions are 1024 x 768 XGA, 1365 x 758 WideXGA, and 1365×768 WideXGA, respectively. For more info go to the NEC Visual Systems Web site.
