Posted on Monday, October 17 2005 @ 9:01 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
NEC has launched three new MultiSync GX2 LCD displays, the 17" and 19" one have a response time of only 4ms and the 20" one has a response time of 6ms.

With NEC's patented OptiClear DVM screens, the NEC MultiSync 70GX2, the 90GX2 and the multi-function 20WMGX2 displays produce images with sharp color and vivid clarity. And, with Rapid Response times of just 4 milliseconds (6 milliseconds for the 20WMGX2), these monitors deliver video and gaming images with smooth, crystal-clear quality.

While the new 17-inch NEC MultiSync 70GX2 and 19-inch 90GX2 enhance the front-of-screen experience, the 20WMGX2 redefines it. With a contrast ratio of 1600:1 and an integrated TV tuner in a wide-aspect format, the 20WMGX is primed to become the premier vehicle to enjoy wide-format entertainment.

The NEC MultiSync GX2 Series displays also feature a popular integrated four-port USB 2.0 powered hub that allow users to easily connect to video cameras, high speed gaming peripherals, storage devices, digital cameras, PDAs, keyboards, mice and more. Controls for the GX2 Series monitors are designed to be easy-to-read and use. The On-Screen Manager (OSM) design provides clear and easy to understand menus, while the joystick-like NaViKey OSM control allows for intuitive navigation and effortless set up and image optimization.

The GX2 line of monitors come with all of the outstanding features of its relatives, including DVM (Dynamic Video Mode) for the 70GX and 90GX2 and A-DVM (Advanced Dynamic Video Mode) for the 20WMGX2 as well as a stylish, thin-frame design with tilt and swivel. Because the 20WMGX2 display boasts multimedia performance, it has a host of additional features such as coax, S-Video, composite and component video inputs, a remote, Picture-in-Picture display, and a speaker bar with dual 5-watt speakers.

Other GX(2) Series features include:
  • OptiClear DVM screen technology for razor sharp images in text, photo, and motion video applications
  • High speed 4ms Rapid Response rate (6ms for the 20WMGX(2)) virtually eliminates distracting ghosting in movie playback and high-speed gaming
  • 400cd/m2 super brightness for vivid on-screen performance
  • 700:1 contrast ratio (1600:1 for the 20WMGX(2)) for crisp and clear image detail
  • 4 port powered USB 2.0 hub for quick connection to a wide range of peripherals and storage devices
  • XtraView technology provides for some of the widest viewing angles available
  • Ambix dual-input technology: DVI-D digital input for connection to the latest high performance video cards and 15-pin D-SUB analog input for compatibility with traditional PCs.
  • Integrated cable management system to reduce distracting clutter
  • No Touch Auto Adjust reduces setup time and provides optimal image settings upon initial power-on
  • Three-year limited parts and labor warranty
  • 24/7 support from NEC Display Solutions
  • All products will be available in December. Estimated street prices for the products are: $369.99 for the 17-inch NEC 70GX(2) after $30 MIR, $499.99 for the 19-inch NEC 90GX(2) after $30 MIR. Price for the 20-inch NEC 20WMGX(2) is TBD
