The MultiSync PA301W 30" Widescreen Color-Critical Desktop LCD Monitor with SpectraView II from NEC is a serious, high-performance LCD display, designed to handle your most demanding color-critical projects. This LCD features a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 2560 x 1600 native resolution with a wide color gamut, and 350cd/m2 of brightness. In addition, it clocks in a super-speedy 7ms response time.

When using the monitor, you'll have at your disposal 1.07 billion out of 4.3 trillion displayable colors. Designed for professionals, the unique screen provides 98.2% coverage of the AdobeRGB Color Space, ensuring that what you see on the screen corresponds to what you'll see on the final product. For tweaking those colors, the included SpectraViewII Color Calibration Solution allows you to calibrate your monitor for consistent output. The monitor also features a programmable 14-bit 3D Lookup Table (LUT), among many other color-related features.

So as to establish connections to computers and other devices, this LCD monitor has two DVI-D ports, one DisplayPort, and a USB 2.0 hub. The hub itself features two upstream ports and three downstream ports. Plus, the hub is integrated with DisplaySync Pro, so you can control two computers with only one keyboard and mouse hooked up to the monitor.

High-Performance, Color-Radiant Monitor

98.2% coverage of AdobeRGB color space
This monitor offers superior screen performance with a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 2560 x 1600 native resolution, and 350cd/m2 of brightness
Supports internal programmable 14-bit 3D lookup tables (LUTs) for calibration
DisplaySync Pro controls two computers with only one keyboard and mouse
Color Vision Emulation for type P/D/T supporting Color Universal Design
The monitor utilizes the SpectraView II Color Calibration Solution, which includes software and colorimeter, so as to help the display achieve accurate, consistent and repeatable color performance
The MultiProfiler software provides complete control over the five picture modes, including the loading of any ICC profile directly into the monitor for optimal color space matching
The monitor allows for wide connectivity with one DisplayPort, two DVI-D inputs, and a USB hub 1

As Part of NEC's MultiSync PA LCD Series

DisplayPort is designed to be the future-ready, scalable solution for high performance digital display connectivity. It enables high resolutions, fast refresh rates and deep color depths over standard cables
DFP (Digital Flat Panel)
An all-digital interface for flat panel monitors which is signal compatible with DVI. As a DVI-based digital only connection, only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between DFP and other DVI-based digital connectors such as DVI and P&D
P&D (Plug and Display)
The VESA standard for digital flat panel monitor interfaces. It is more robust than DFP since it allows for other options off a signal connector. The VESA committee has recognized that DFP is a subset of P&D. As a DVI-based connector (for the digital input pins), only a simple adapter is necessary for compatibility between P&D and other DVI-based digital connector such as DVI and DFP
Pivoting Stand
Allows users to adjust the monitor to the orientation that best fits their application, choosing Landscape orientation for wide documents or Portrait orientation for the ability to preview a full page on one screen at one time. The Portrait orientation is also perfect for full screen video conferencing
Reduced Footprint
Provides the ideal solution for environments requiring superior image quality but with size and weight limitations. The monitor's small footprint and low weight allow it to be moved or transported easily from one location to another
Color Control Systems
Allows you to adjust the colors on your screen and customize the color accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards
Natural Color Matrix
Combines Six-axis color control and the sRGB standard. Six-axis color control permits color adjustments via six axes (R, G, B, C, M and Y) rather than through the three axes (R, G and B) previously available. The sRGB standard provides the monitor with a uniform color profile. This assures that the colors displayed on the monitor are exactly the same as on the color printout (with sRGB supporting operating system and sRGB printer). This allows you to adjust the colors on your screen and customize the color accuracy of your monitor to a variety of standards
OSD (On-Screen Display) Controls
Allow you to quickly and easily adjust all elements of your screen image via simple to use onscreen menus
Enhanced human ergonomics to improve the working environment, protect the health of the user and save money. Examples include OSD controls for quick and easy image adjustments, tilt base for preferred angle of vision, small footprint and compliance with MPRII and TCO guidelines for lower emissions
Plug and Play
The Microsoft solution with the Windows operating system facilitates setup and installation by allowing the monitor to send its capabilities (such as screen size and resolutions supported) directly to your computer, automatically optimizing display performance
Intelligent Power Manager System
Provides innovative power-saving methods that allow the monitor to shift to a lower power consumption level when on but not in use, saving two-thirds of your monitor energy costs, reducing emissions and lowering the air conditioning costs of the workplace
Multiple Frequency Technology
Automatically adjusts monitor to the display card's scanning frequency, thus displaying the resolution required
FullScan Capability
Allows you to use the entire screen area in most resolutions, significantly expanding image size
Wide Viewing Angle Technology
Allows the user to be able to see the monitor from any angle (178°) from any orientation - Portrait or Landscape
VESA Standard Mounting Interface
Allows users to connect their MultiSync monitor to any VESA standard third party mounting arm or bracket. Allows for the monitor to be mounted on a wall or an arm using any third party compliant device
Visual Controller
This is a ground-breaking software family, developed by NEC Display Solutions, providing intuitive access to all monitor setting controls and remote diagnosis via the Windows interface, based upon the VESA standard, DDC/CI. Using a standard VGA or DVI signal cable, Visual Controller can either benefit single users or, with Visual Controller Administrator, can reduce the Total Cost of Ownership through remote network-wide maintenance, diagnosis and asset-reporting
sRGB Color Control
An optimized color management standard which allows for color matching on computer displays and other peripherals. The sRGB, which is based on the calibrated color space, allows for optimal color representation and backward compatibility with other common color standards
The display will compensate for slight variations in the white uniformity level that may occur on the screen and improves the color and evens out the luminance uniformity of the display
Response Improve
Improved gray to gray response
Adjustable Stand with Pivot Capability and Quick Release
Because this stand is adjustable you can add flexibility to your viewing preferences. The display can also be quickly removed from the stand as well
Auto Dimming Technology
Automatically adjusts the backlight level depending on the level of ambient lighting
USB 2.0 Hub
Add excitement to your computing by connecting digital cameras, scanners and more to this display
