New and Improved 32-Inch UHD Monitor Delivers Switchable DisplayPort, HDMI Inputs for Added Flexibility
NEC today announced the PA322UHD-2 display for professionals who need precise color. This $3000 LED-backlit monitor includes all the features of the existing PA322UHD model and now updates the option slot with support for 4K UHD inputs, including an installed, switchable DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0 option.
The Open Pluggable Specification (OPS)-compliant option slot gives videographers, photographers, print production specialists and others added flexibility to use the PA322UHD-2 in an even wider range of existing workflows.
The display uses a wide gamut white LED backlight and an IGZO technology IPS-type LCD panel that delivers excellent image quality with lower power consumption than comparable LCD displays while delivering 99.2 percent coverage of the Adobe RGB color space. Built-in presets for standard color spaces, including sRGB, AdobeRGB, DCI REC 709 and even the DICOM medical imaging standard provide quick access to previewing your work in a specific color space.
The UHD resolution on the MultiSync PA322UHD-2 delivers 140 pixels per inch (PPI) at native resolution, which nears the accuracy of printed content. More content can be put on screen, reducing scrolling and increasing productivity. The high PPI means images will appear sharper and with more detail. Combined with the Picture by Picture modes, content can be viewed in stunning detail in multiple color spaces easily and clearly.
In addition to the installed OPS, the NEC Display Solutions 3G/SD/HD-SDI input card (SB-04HC) and the HD-SDI input card (SB-01HC) also are compatible with the PA322UHD-2.
