Multiprofiler Application
A variety of Monitor controls: MultiProler allows you to control the brightness, black level and color gamut directly from the software in addition to many other settings. Changes to settings are made instantly to the monitor.

Picture Mode preset editing: Multiple picture modes can be quickly congured using MultiProler. Choose from the simplicity of built-in sRGB, Adobe RGB, DCI, DICOM, REC-BT709 and High Brightness modes, or load an ICC prole for color matching an existing printer or display. In addition, MultiProler helps you create a completely custom Picture Mode conguration, including controlling the gamma characteristics, color gamut and white point.

Picture-in-Picture (PIP) conguration: The PIP modes can be completely congured directly in MultiProler, including the PIP mode, the video inputs and the Picture Mode for the second video input. This greatly simplies the management of multiple computer congurations.

DisplaySync Pro and USB hub conguration: The integrated USB hub in MultiSync PA Series monitors also can be managed through MultiProler to function as a keyboard/ video/mouse (KVM) switch. This feature maps the USB upstream ports to the various display inputs, which is useful for managing controlling computers attached to the display.

Quick print preview: Create a print preview Picture Mode for your printer by loading its ICC prole in MultiProler. The Picture-in-Picture or Picture-by-Picture function can then be used to view the print preview in real-time.

Automatic generation of ICC proles: MultiProler automatically generates and updates ICC proles as the color modes are selected or adjusted, reducing the need for a proling package to prole the monitor.

question

Does it work in Europe?
Asked by: Anonymous
Depends, in Europe normally voltage is 240V, and 50 Hz., not 120V and 60 Hz, like here. You will need adapters to use it in Europe. The monitor is excellent, I am very happy with it. Emilio

question

Can the Spyder4ELITE be use to calibrate this monitor?
Asked by: Kathy
I use an Xrite ColorMunki Photo to calibrate my monitor. It works just fine. Check with NEC to confirm but I expect the Spyder will also perform well.

question

I have this monitor (NEC PA242W-BK 24) along with Spectraview and the included colorimeter. I also bought the ColorMunki Colorimeter/Spectrophotometer for building printer profiles. Is it better to calibrate the monitor with Spectraview and build profiles with Colormunki, or is it better to use ColorMunki for both?
Asked by: Stephen J.
The Spectraview software uses hardware in the monitor to adjust color response rather than the graphic card. It's able to provide finer gradations. I have the NEC PA 241W-BK and use my Colormunki with SpectraView II for my monitor and the ColorMunki software for making printer/paper profiles. You don't have to buy the colorimeter with the monitor if you have a Colormunki, Just buy the software.

question

Can my LACIE blue eye pro be used to calibrate this monitor?
Asked by: David J.
Hi, there. I am sorry but I don't know if Lacie blue eye works with the NEC monitor.I use x rite i1 display for calibration because it is compatible with NEC monitor. You should probably check the compatibility of the product either with the Lacie or NEC company. Sorry that I could not help you...!
