NEC Unveils 24-Inch HD Business Display

The new wide-screen monitor offers true 1080p high-definition, which translates into a resolution of 1,920 by 1,200 pixels.
NEC on Wednesday introduced a 24-inch, high-definition, wide-screen monitor, the latest in the company's energy-efficient series of business displays.

Along with the MultiSync EA241WM LCD monitor, the company also unveiled a 19-inch standard-format LCC, the EA191M. The latest offerings bring the number of energy-efficient EA monitors to four. NEC in June and September launched a 26-inch monitor and a 22-inch LCD, respectively.

The new wide-screen monitor offers true 1080p high-definition, which translates into a resolution of 1,920 by 1,200 pixels. The standard-format display has a resolution of 1,280 by 1,024 pixels.

The EA series is aimed at business users. The monitors have built-in speakers and ergonomic features such as height adjustments, swivel, tilt, and pivot. In addition, the monitors are Energy Star compliant, which means they meet energy-efficiency standards set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy.

As a higher-end monitor, the EA241WM has features not available with the EA191M. Those features include and integrated four-port USB 2.0 hub, and a high-definition multimedia interface connector to show HD video from a PC.

Both displays include a three-year warranty. The estimated street prices for the EA241WM and EA191M are $549 and $379, respectively.

NEC this year launched a big push in the U.S. server market, rolling out a series of products over the last eight months. The latest servers, introduced last month, included the energy-efficient Express 5800/i120Ra-e1 rack-mount system, which starts at $1,800, and the Express 5800/140Ba-10 blade server, which starts at $6,500.

NEC-branded server products are mostly sold in Japan, Europe, and Asia-Pacific. The company has built servers for other companies selling in the United States under their own brands for more than a dozen years.
