NEC unveiled its new 26" LCD2690WUXi² LCD display at CES 2009. This IPS active matrix LCD display was designer for graphics artists and photographers, it features a 1900 x 1200 pixel resolution, 1,000:1 contrast ratio, 320cd/m² brightness and wide color gamut (97.8 percent coverage of AdobeRGB).
Derived from the award-winning LCD2690WUXi, the new display has a new, wider color gamut panel, delivering expanded blue coverage and improved brightness uniformity. The high-performing MultiSync LCD2690WUXi² aids with productivity, as its wide-format design (16:10 aspect ratio) provides roughly the same work area as two smaller-sized displays, enabling users to work simultaneously in multiple application windows.
"The MultiSync LCD2690WUXi² follows in the footsteps of its companions in the highly successful MultiSync 90 Series," said Stan Swiderski, Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. "With its multitude of leading-edge capabilities, groundbreaking design and vast number of innovative technologies, the LCD2690WUXi² allows high-end graphics users to achieve the ultimate in color performance."
The MultiSync LCD2690WUXi² is certified with Specifications for Web Offset Publications (SWOP) software, assuring users achieve accurate soft-proof images. The display passed with the "GRACoL Grade 1" test, one of the highest level examinations available for SWOP certification.
The NEC MultiSync LCD2690WUXi² should be available for around $1,199.
