TFT/LCD displays are perfectly flat, a lot thinner and lighter than conventional CRT displays and do not flicker, all this because of the new technology they use for producing images. Do you want to free up space on your desk, or do you want to be able to move your monitor without breaking your back? Then this is the perfect display for you!

Thus making it a top-class graphics partner. A non-compromising approach to technology and state-of-the-art screen properties provide perfect pre-requisites for colour-critical image processing, e.g. for digital photography, pre-press or high-performance graphic design and video animation applications.

* SuperAdvanced SuperFine Technologie (SA-IPS) TFT and CCFL backlight
* GammaComp: Hardware calibration with 10bit LUT (look up table) for 30bit colour control with software SpectraView Profiler
* high brightness
* extremely slim bezel (16 mm)
* OmniColor™: sRGB and 6-axis-colour-control
* ambix+ technology: DVI-I, DVI-D and mini D-sub
* detachable hood (black)
A programmable 10-bit gamma correction
function – one each for red, green and blue – is the secret to optimal hardware calibration with the SpectraView 1980 and SpectraView 2180 models. 1,024 tonal values per colour mean that gradation adjustment is so much more precise. So even the most subtle tonal value gradations and greyscales are displayed
with amazing smoothness. NEC SpectraView™ monitors’ colour range covers most of the printable colour space – which is also good news for displaying the (up to now) notoriously difficult cyan area.

Latest-generation TFT panels with horizontal and vertical viewing
angles of more than 170 degrees – for the best screen contrast,
even from awkward viewing angles
Extremely narrow frame width – for multi-monitor use with almost
no annoying image gaps
On-screen menu (OSM) can be used to lock the function keys –
to prevent brightness and contrast settings from being accidentally
changed after calibration
Hood with sliding roof:
- Allows easy calibration without removing the hood
- Image reproduction is not affected by interference from ambient light
ambix+ technology with DVI-I, DVI-D and VGA interfaces –
for connection to both an logue and digital graphics boards outputs

The analysis of people and their specific physical attributes, from which the basis of a streamlined shape for products is determined. It has an influence on safety and efficiency of work. The more focused meaning of ergonomics expresses unproblematic and easy handling of equipment by a user in the workplace. It is obvious that a good monitor must be equipped with a foot that enables rotation and tilting. It is important to be able to shift a monitor with one hand. Lack of flickering, low radiation and harmful effects on the environment are important features of a monitor in respect of ergonomics.
