NEC 26-inch Computer LCD

NEC on Tuesday said it will be the first to launch a 26-inch LCD for computers. The new MultiSync LCD2690WUXi adds the large, 1920x1200 display to the company's color-accurate line of displays for artists and other visual professionals. The 1920x1200 screen is not only the largest of the kind but also the first to use X-Light Pro, a technology that uses the display's own luminance and color sensor to ensure a consistent light level across the entire screen. The panel is also based on more color-friendly IPS technology with a 12-bit color look-up table that produces better color levels and grayscales. The resulting image matches up to 92% of the NTSC color gamut, 93.4% of the Adobe color triangle, and 87.8% of the NTSC triangle, NEC claims.

Triple inputs for DVI-D, DVI-I, and VGA allow a mixture of analog and digital sources; extended display cables as long as 30 feet for digital and 100 for analog can be attached without a degraded signal. The 26-inch model, as well as the similarly-equipped 24-inch LCD2490WUXi, are expected to arrive in Feburary for prices of $1,699 and $1,499 respectively.
