NEC-MITSUBISHI ELECTRONICS INTRODUCES 40-INCH LCD DISPLAY.NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display of America, Inc., a vendor of flat panel desktop displays, has introduced the NEC (NEC Corporation, Tokyo, www.nec.com, www.necus.com) An electronics conglomerate known in the U.S. for its monitors. In Japan, it had the lion's share of the PC market until the late 1990s (see PC 98).
NEC was founded in Tokyo in 1899 as Nippon Electric Company, Ltd. LCD4000, its largest information display at 40-inches (40-inch viewable image size On a computer monitor, the viewable image size or VIS is the actual amount of screen space that is available to display a picture, without obstruction from the case or other aspects of the unit's design. ). Only three months after the release of the 30-inch (29.5-inch viewable image size) NEC LCD3000 display in November, this announcement signals another milestone in the development of large LCD technology. The superior image quality and functional design of the LCD4000 are ideal for specialized applications including public displays, conference presentations, information kiosks, financial exchanges, trade show exhibits, as well as retail and airport signage.
With a wide aspect ratio and high resolution of 1280 x 768 pixels (wide-XGA), the NEC LCD4000 enables onlookers to clearly view optimized text and images. The high brightness levels of 450 cd/m2 allow the monitor to achieve a typical 600:1 contrast ratio, thereby producing rich, vibrant colors. To accurately deliver full motion video without the appearance of "ghosting See ghosting server and ghost. " or "image trailing," the NEC LCD4000 operates at a Rapid Response time of 23 ms. Unlike phosphor-based public displays, images do not become permanently engraved en·grave

"In the last year, large LCD displays have established a strong foothold in the information display market and continue to gain momentum as more extensive panels are introduced," said Bob O'Donnell, director, personal technology at IDC. "IDC research shows that for information display applications, large LCD monitors are an attractive option because of their high resolution, sharp color contrast, light weight and low power consumption, which translates into low utility costs."
To enable users to easily access and modify display settings, the NEC LCD4000 utilizes an RS-232 connector or the advanced remote diagnostics and control capabilities can be accomplished directly off of the VGA connector through use of the Display Data Channel/ Command Interface (DDC/CI DDC/CI Display Data Channel/Command Interface ). This advanced monitor intelligence allows control commands to be sent directly to the monitor through a standard PC system or remotely over an existing network (LAN (Local Area Network) A communications network that serves users within a confined geographical area. The "clients" are the user's workstations typically running Windows, although Mac and Linux clients are also used. ) by a system administrator. The NEC LCD4000 also includes CableComp technology, which enables IT administrators to utilize long cables of up to 326 feet/100 meters to service, upgrade and repair the unit from a central control room. The NEC LCD4000 can also be easily adjusted with a touch of the controls on the front of the display, which activates an expanded display mode through the OSM OSM Oregon Steel Mills, Inc.

"NEC-Mitsubishi continues to spearhead larger and larger LCD technology developments in order to bring the benefits of LCD panels, previously only available on the desktop, to large information display applications," said Chris Connery, director of SMB (1) (Small to Medium-sized Business) Also called "SME" (small to medium-sized enterprise), it refers to companies that are larger than the small office/home office (SOHO), but not huge. & specialty marketing at NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display. "The NEC LCD4000 integrates NEC-Mitsubishi's expertise in outstanding LCD image quality, superior functionality and streamlined design with the company's largest panel yet."
As ease of installation is a priority in the information display market, the NEC LCD4000 was engineered with a uniformly thin frame and lightweight of only 57.3 lbs. without its stand. It adheres to the latest VESA (Video Electronics Standards Association, Milpitas, CA, www.vesa.org) A membership organization founded in 1989 that sets interface standards for the PC, workstation and computing environments. Note the following VESA standards following this entry. compliant mount configurations, which will be required of all manufacturers in the future. The NEC LCD4000 allows onlookers to see the screen from a wide range of positions without compromising image quality, by utilizing NEC XtraView technology for 170-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angles. For maximum compatibility in diverse information display environments, the LCD 4000 includes a DVI-D (DVI-Digital) See DVI. connector for digital video signal adapters and a traditional 15-pin mini D-sub connector that is configured for IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries) VGA-compatible adapters, as well as BNC VGA, composite video, component video, S-Video and NTSC (National TV Standards Committee) The committee that developed the television standards for the U.S, which are also used in Canada, Japan, South Korea and several Central and South American countries. Both the committee and the standard are called "NTSC. connectors.
