NEC PA242W overview

  • 1Description

The PA242W-BK-SV 24" Professional Wide Gamut LED Desktop Monitor from NEC is a full featured IPS monitor designed to provide accurate color representation with 100% coverage of sRGB color space, 99.3% coverage of Adobe RGB color space and 94.8% coverage of the NTSC color space.

This enhanced color matching capability is accompanied by a 1920 x 1200 resolution, an 8ms response time and 1,000:1 contrast ratio. The enhanced response time ensures you see reduced blur when viewing videos and movies while the improved contrast ratio provides darker dark and brighter light colors for a more dynamic picture quality. Additionally, the PA242W monitor supports both 10-bit and 8-bit color depths along with a 14-bit lookup table for a large palette of displayable colors.

The SpectraView II Color Calibration Solution includes the colorimeter and necessary software allowing you to calibrate the monitor to achieve accurate, consistent and repeatable color performance.
AH-IPS LCD panel with 100% coverage of sRGB and 99.3% coverage of Adobe RGB color space
Enhanced screen performance 1000:1 contrast ratio, 1920 x 1200 native resolution, 340 cd/m² brightness
Supports internal programmable 14-bit 3D lookup tables (LUTs) for calibration
3-port USB hub with DisplaySync Pro controls two computers with only one keyboard and mouse
5 programmable Picture Mode profiles for quick access to multiple color spaces
MultiProfiler provides complete control over picture modes and enables quick print emulation
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.

    NEC PA242W reviews

    PA242W-BK-SV 24" Professional Wide Gamut LED Desktop Monitor is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Excellent Monitor for Digital Photography I use this monitor which is color calibrated for digital photography with Adobe Photoshop CC 2015. The color calibration software Spectra View II works very well to color calibrate the monitor. The monitor is flexible in height adjustment and in tilting vertically and horizontally. It is a pleasure to use and view. One needs to make sure that the computer does not have any previous monitor color calibration software when installing Spectra View II software.The previous software can interfere with the software recognizing the attached color calibrator which happened in my case with LaCie Blue Eye Pro. After removal of LaCie Blue Eye Pro software at the recommendation of NEC Technical Support, everything worked fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super Great Tech support after and before purchase We use this to prepare photos for a book printer, as well as to make my own fine art large format prints. We needed help to calibrate this properly so that what we see on the monitor matched what the printing company produced. This is a complex issue. NEC tech support was super great. Explained it to us (twice) in separate phone calls and had patience with us and he really was very very knowledgeable. As well the monitor has a beautiful picture. I got the spectraview calibrator with it but they explained, before our purchase that we could use another one if we already had it. I bought the spectra view just because it seemed that it would be a bit easier to integrate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent professional monitor. This is a beautiful monitor. No nonsense; purposefully designed and well built. Right out of the box, it was better than my old La Cie (same size, but cost much more). I also purchased the NEC hood for this monitor and the SpectraView II colorimeter. Both are great: effective and easy to use. The price for the monitor was surprisingly low. I feel lucky to have chosen this monitor. I am a sculptor by trade who shoots his own work. I spend about a third of my time laboring over PhotoShop to edit images I release for marketing and PR.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I hope in the near furture to buy another one. I only have the monitor for a few days, but let me tell you. I plugged in the monitor, posted a high dynamic rang photo I took recently on my second monitor,older one, the posted the same photo to this new NEC and I was blown away, and I mean BLOWN AWAY. I really wish I had bought this sooner. The base is very heavy and the monitor is VERY stable on the desktop. I also love the ability to rotate the monitor from landscape to portrait mode. The cable retainer works very well. When you receive your monitor, the directions tell how to take it out of the box,Do as the instructions tell you, this is no LIGHT WEIGHT TOY!! It is heavy!!! but very stable. Yes I will purchase another on as soon as possible!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tops in Quality and Value! Excellent Packaging. Provided all conceivable electrical plugs and cables. Easy setup and adjustments. Spectraview II color calibration works well. This is the secret sauce you need to match color from screen to prints: Color Critical, Wide Gamut Monitor + Display Port Cable + PNY K600 or similar video card + Turn Aero off in Windows. You can spend more, but you won't get better results.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Graphics Monitor My first professional monitor for image processing. Great quality, no dead pixels. The supplied calibrator is very easy to use. I hope there's a faster way to switch between different profiles (a tray icon?).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceptional I replaced my old NEC multisync with this model with spectraview. While my old NEC monitor was very good resolution and the color was perfectly calibrated, I had been coveting this newer technology for over a year. It was very easy to setup and the calibration also was quite easy. That being said, some of the instructions were a bit lacking but NEC support is amazing so got my questions answered quickly. This is a quality monitor with great color and resolution. Photo editing is a breeze.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Feast for the Eyes I finally have a professional monitor for editing my photos. Easy setup and calibration with SpectraView software. A selection of cables for most every kind of installation. Beautiful rendition of images. I was nervous about spending this much money, but now I know I'll never regret it. B&H was quick with delivery and trustworthy as always.
