Chicago - (Business Wire) - NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial LCD display and projector solutions, announced today the new MultiSync EX series ideal for corporate users looking for increased productivity and sleek aesthetics.
The introduction of the series begins with the 23-inch MultiSync EX231W, an LED-backlit LCD monitor equipped with DisplayPort and DVI-I for full high-definition resolution. The monitor offers users an ultra slim bezel (14.6mm width), ultra light weight (9.3 lbs. with stand) and USB pass-through on the top of the monitor, which allows quick connecting of a webcam or simple flash drive access. Additionally, its excellent ergonomic features include a fully adjustable stand with 110mm height adjust, pivot, swivel and tilt, as well as a built-in carrying handle and quick release stand, which is ideal in financial applications where multiple monitors are tiled.
First-class quality comes in the form of brand new technologies like the human sensor, which detects user activity in front of the monitor and reduces its power up to 95% with inactivity. Users have the ability to adjust the inactivity length and sensor settings. The monitor's ambient light sensor detects external light sources and adjusts the display's brightness accordingly, while its carbon savings meter calculates the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
"Building on the strong heritage of the MultiSync brand, the EX series was developed to give users a unique blend of an ultra-slim, light-weight display that is extremely environmentally friendly and packed with features," said Kevin Christopherson, director of product marketing for desktop monitors at NEC. "The stunning design of the MultiSync EX231W makes it a perfect candidate for corporate and financial users looking for a benchmark product throughout its offices. The innovations built into this product make it our greenest desktop series to date with the least amount of materials, waste and harmful substances."
