NEC Launches Two New Enterprise LED Monitors

NEC has been on a roll in the desktop monitor sector as of late. We recently reviewed the company's new MultiSync PA271W display and gave it high marks for its excellent color reproduction and boatload of useful features, and now NEC is bringing to market two more MultiSync displays, the EA192M and E201W.

Both of these sport LED backlighting, a trait NEC says it wants to concentrate on in order to "help protect the environment." And other than the screen size and resolution (EA192M measures 19-inches and features a 1280x1024 native res with a 5:4 aspect ratio, while the E201W boasts a 20-inch panel with a 1600x900 resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio), these two displays are essentially the same. Both include an ergonomic stand with tilt swivel, and pivot; a DisplayPort; ambient light sensor; and a 25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. The EA192M also includes a pair of integrated down-firing speakers and a headphone jack, which NEC is pitching to the videoconferencing crowd.

Look for these to ship this month for $240 (EA192M) and $200 (E201W).

NEC Display Solutions Expands Enterprise Desktop Monitor Series with Eco-Friendly, LED-Backlit Desktop Models

19-inch Standard and 20-inch Widescreen LED-Backlit Models Offer Low Power Consumption, Full Adjustability, Ambient Light Sensor and DisplayPort Connectivity

CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the new 19-inch MultiSync® EA192M and 20-inch widescreen MultiSync E201W to the desktop product lineup.

“Our goal is to help our customers lower their total cost of ownership throughout the life of the display and provide features that make daily operations simpler and more productive.”

Compared to previous generations of NEC’s desktop LCD monitors, the LED backlight technology in both the MultiSync EA192M and E201W allows less greenhouse gas emissions, and reduces power consumption and heat radiation. These new LED-backlit models also use more recycled plastics, less hazardous materials and are mercury-free, a significant advantage when compared to conventional CCFL-backlit LCD monitors.

The ambient light sensor, which automatically adjusts the brightness to the optimal setting depending on ambient lighting, screen content or both, has been added to the MultiSync EA192M and E201W to further minimize power consumption. DisplayPort connectivity is also implemented on both models, providing expanded connectivity, along with VGA and DVI-D.

The 20-inch widescreen MultiSync E201W is a new size available as part of the MultiSync E Series. It features a 16:9 aspect ratio and 1600 x 900 native resolution. The 19-inch MultiSync EA192M features a 5:4 aspect ratio, 1280 x 1024 native resolution and has long been a highly desirable size for enterprise businesses. Its integrated down-firing speakers and headphone jack enable business conferencing. Both models feature a fully adjustable ergonomic stand, including 110mm height-adjust, pivot, tilt and swivel capabilities.

“NEC is introducing more LED-backlit LCD desktop monitors to help protect the environment,” said Lynn Gu, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. “Our goal is to help our customers lower their total cost of ownership throughout the life of the display and provide features that make daily operations simpler and more productive.”

Below is a partial list of features included in the MultiSync EA192M and E201W:

  • LED backlight technology
  • 25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio
  • Fully ergonomic adjustable stand (110mm height-adjust, tilt, swivel and pivot)
  • Expanded connectivity with DisplayPort
  • Integrated down-firing speakers (EA192M)
  • Ambient light sensor automatically minimizes power consumption

  • Carbon footprint and cost meter allow users to quickly and easily track the savings of green gas emissions
  • Compliant with the newest standards, such as ENERGY STAR 5.0 and TCO 5.0
