NEC unveils P221W 22" LCD monitor, 96% Adobe RGB

NEC P221W LCD wide gamut

NEC has unveiled the first display in its MultiSync P Series of LCD monitors, the 22 inch P221W. The new LCD monitor offers 1680 by 1050 pixel native resolution, while presenting 96 percent of the AdobeRGB color gamut for image or video editing that requires color precision. The integrated 10-bit color look-up tables are programmable if corrections are needed. The P221W offers a slightly wider viewing angle of 178 degrees from the S-PVA LCD panel.

The relatively long response time of 16ms is a compromise for the wide-gamut of colors, making the device less attractive for gaming use. The reported contrast ratio is 1000:1, with 300cd per square meter brightness. A wide range of adjustments are afforded by the stand, including height, tilt, swivel, and pivot.

The P221W will be available in December, with an estimated price of $640. An optional SpectraView color calibration kit will also be available later this year for $375.
