New NEC Displays Can Control Multiple Monitors

The MultiSync 30-inch EA305WMi has an advertised price of $1,399.Two new displays from NEC Display Solutions can be controlled from multiple monitors at the same time.

The MultiSync 30-inch EA305WMi and 27-inch EA275WMi allow users to control as many as six displays in a multi-monitor configuration. While one monitor is established as the "master," users are able to control settings by channeling changes through the primary unit.

The 30-inch EA305WMi is a particularly good choice, according to NEC officials, for photography, video production and print. Meanwhile, the 27-inch EA275WMi works well for online content development.

Both models also offer smart sensing technology that automatically makes adjustment for display brightness after analyzing work conditions and ambient light. A comprehensive input panel allows the system to connect with a wide number of devices.

Both displays include:

  • Widescreen panel with LED backlighting;
  • 350 cd/m brightness and 8-bit color;
  • 20,000:1 contrast ratio;
  • An adjustable stand; and
  • Integrated speakers and a headphone jack.

Each model has a 3-year limited parts and labor warranty. Now available, the 30-inch unit has an advertised price of $1,399 and the 27-inch unit a price of $699. The SpectraView software and calibration sensor can be bundled with either unit, making the price of the 30-inch display $1,549 and the 27-inch display $849.

"The new displays give professionals new, powerful tools, especially when using multiple monitors," said Art Marshall, senior product manager for desktop displays at NEC Display Solutions. "The displays also include NEC's environmental and productivity features, as well as NEC-exclusive ControlSync and human sensors."
