NEC DEBUTS 50-INCH PLASMA MONITOR WITH XGA RESOLUTION.
"The PlasmaSync 50MP1 is the only 50-inch XGA monitor on the market designed specifically to meet the needs of multimedia presentation users," said Scott Evans, product marketing manager for the Visual Systems Division at NEC Technologies. "Its 1365x768 resolution is unmatched by any 50-inch XGA monitor shipping today, and its unique split screen multi-input display and best-of-class image quality make the 50MP1 a superior choice for applications from the boardroom to the broadcast booth. With its host of innovative features, the PlasmaSync 50MP1 confirms NEC Technologies' position as the only manufacturer with the vision to provide a solution for virtually any display need."
Innovative Features Enhance Multimedia Presentation Use
NEC Technologies' plasma displays are acclaimed for their advanced design, having won the PresentationMaster.com and KNews Best of 2000 Best Monitor Innovation award for staying ahead of the curve in plasma design and innovation. The PlasmaSync 50MP1 continues this trend, offering the highest native panel resolution currently available in a 50-inch XGA monitor at 1365x768 pixels. This higher resolution allows users to display more information on screen. The display also boasts superior image quality enhanced by NEC Technologies' patented Capsulated Color Filter technology, which delivers realistic color reproduction, and by AccuBlend scan conversion technology, which enables sharp display of high resolution images up to UXGA. In addition, the 50MP1 features advanced video signal processing, including a motion compensated 3D scan converter and a 2/3 pull down converter for smooth, lifelike video.
Other distinctive features built into the PlasmaSync 50MP1 include the following:
* Split Screen Multi-Source Display Capability: The 50MP1 features a split screen function that allows the simultaneous display of multiple sources onscreen, making it ideal for multi-tasking and work-group collaboration requirements. The monitor offers several split screen and picture-in-picture display options and enables users to display 4:3 and 16:9 images concurrently.
* Broad Source Compatibility: The 50MP1 can accommodate composite, component and S-Video as well as HDTV and computer graphics standards up to UXGA, making it a versatile choice for any multimedia presentation need.
* Multimedia Capability with Built-In Stereo Audio: The PlasmaSync 50MP1 includes an internal stereo amplifier and optional attachable speakers that match the monitor's cabinet design. This provides seamlessly integrated audio capabilities, further enhancing the monitor's cache in multimedia applications.
* AccuShield Phosphor Protection: This exclusive technology provides built-in support for minimizing phosphor burn, which can occur in any phosphor-based display device. It includes an Inverse Mode that can be selected to display inverted RGB color values, evening the amount of wear on the screen's phosphor and reducing the visibility of retained images.
Furthermore, the PlasmaSync 50MP1 has a 3X digital zoom feature which enables presenters to select an area of the screen and enlarge it up to 300 percent, making even the smallest text visible to an entire room. The user-friendly display also operates with an unobtrusive 26 db of fan noise and can be controlled directly via its front bezel controls as well as by its ergonomically designed remote. Additionally, the PlasmaSync 50MP1 comes equipped with a DVI input.
Pricing and Availability
The PlasmaSync 50MP1 display is available now through the NEC Technologies network of authorized AV Integrators and Specialty Value Added Distributors. The suggested retail price of the plasma monitor is $18,995 US.
