NEC’s MultiSync® EA241WM combines cutting-edge technologies with dynamic, durable design

London, 17 December 2008 – NEC Display Solutions today announced the availability of the MultiSync® EA241WM – a fully featured, 24” wide-format LCD display. Designed to meet the needs of medium to large-sized enterprises, the EA241WM is ideal for all office and multi-media applications, including technical CAD/CAM.

To ensure low cost of ownership and an outstanding cost-performance ratio, the EA241WM is equipped with a range of energy efficient functions including ‘automatic stand-by’, ‘automatic power-off’ and an ‘EcoMode’, which enables the LCD to operate at a maximum brightness of 60% therefore reducing its carbon emissions. As with the entire MultiSync® EA range, the EA241WM includes a carbon footprint meter integrated into the OSD (On Screen Display) designed to inform the user of the display’s overall carbon balance over its total period of operation. (This feature is of particular use to organisations which have a carbon reporting policy as it helps them to quickly and easily quantify measurement.) This model has been awarded EPEAT Gold certification* which is only given to devices with a particularly low environmental impact. In order to qualify, NEC Display Solutions had to satisfy 23 obligatory and 21 optional criteria.

The EA241WM is equipped with numerous multimedia ports. It has an analogue connector as well as a digital DVI-D connector that supports HDCP. In addition, an integrated USB hub also offers users the ability to connect external data storage devices directly to the display. The EA241WM has 2 x 1 Watt loudspeakers integrated to the rear of the bezel underside.

With its 1920 x 1200 resolution and 20% increase in picture area, this 24" model is perfect for those users who want to make the transition from 4:3 format, 21" monitors to a more ergonomic, wide-format display. The EA241WM’s TN panel offers the best possible picture quality due to its 16.77 million reproducible colours, contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and brightness of 400cd/m2. In addition, with a response time of 5 ms, the NEC MultiSync® EA241WM is outstanding in its ability to effortlessly reproduce moving images, multimedia applications or 3D simulations.

Ergonomic features allow the EA241WM to be adapted to individual users in order to ensure maximum comfort and productivity. The display can be tilted, swivelled, and its height adjusted up to 110mm. If portrait mode is required, the monitor can additionally be rotated through 90 degrees.

The elegantly designed NEC MultiSync® EA241WM has rounded corners and smooth lines. Its narrow bezel means that, if desired, several displays can be conveniently grouped together for a seamless desk top multi-monitor solution.
Handling and assembly of the display is quick and easy thanks to its handle and VESA mounting. Horizontal and vertical viewing angles of 170 degrees (at a contrast ratio of 5:1) mean that an excellent view of the screen is always ensured.

The NEC MultiSync® EA241WM is available now priced at £339 (exc. VAT). The display is available in black, or in white with a silver bezel. Included in the package are a power cable, USB cable, VGA and DVI-D cables, a handbook as well as an installation and drivers CD-ROM. NEC Display Solutions Europe offers a three year guarantee for the device that also includes the backlight.
