NEC introduces new AccuSync LCD monitors

Designed to be bundled with a computer system, the high performance 15-inch NEC AccuSync LCD5V, 17-inch NEC AccuSync LCD7V and 19-inch NEC AccuSync LCD9V displays carry low estimated street prices of $299, $459 and $679 respectively. Setting a new standard in LCD monitor value, the models incorporate the latest LCD display technology to provide mainstream home, education and small to medium-sized business environments with superior screen performance, advanced functionality and slim design.

“We are pleased to see NEC-Mitsubishi continuing to make a significant investment in the system builder market by introducing high quality NEC AccuSync LCD monitors at low price points for the ultimate in desktop display value,” said Jack Boyczuk, president of Great Lakes Electronic Distributing, Inc. “The display continues to increase its status in a system purchase as a growing number of our customers want to take advantage of the sharp, bright images and slim aesthetic appeal of an LCD monitor.”

NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display offers its NEC AccuSync LCD monitors at new low price points without compromising the superior quality associated with the company brand. To provide users with vivid images that enhance their comfort and productivity, the models support multiple resolutions up to 1280 x 1024 and offer high brightness levels of 260 cd/m2 (typical) with the NEC AccuSync LCD7V, and 250 cd/m2 (typical) with the LCD5V and LCD9V. Equipped with NEC’s Rapid Responseâ„¢ screen-enhancing technology, the units generate quick response times of 30ms or less for uninterrupted display of full-motion video. By achieving as many as 40 frames per second, the monitors ensure improved viewing of games and video applications such as presentations and streaming video.

“With the introduction of the NEC AccuSync Series, NEC-Mitsubishi moves closer to attaining its goal of further extending mainstream adoption of LCD monitors by empowering system builders with the products and services to effectively reach this market,” said Hans Baumann, senior product manager, for NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display of America, Inc. “As the LCD brand leader, NEC-Mitsubishi leveraged its technology advancements and rising sales volumes to customize a value-driven LCD display series that augments the system bundle and enhances the overall computing experience for users.”

The NEC AccuSync LCD5V, LCD7V and LCD9V monitors offer significant savings in power consumption and cooling power by utilizing up to 70 per cent less energy than comparable CRT monitors. With a high-efficiency backlight, heat is also reduced at the front of the screen. For enhanced viewing flexibility and comfort, the displays can be easily mounted to a wall with an adaptable arm. The units are easily adjusted and controlled with a touch of the controls on the front of the display, using On Screen Manager (OSM®).

Recognized in North America for its commitment to white-box system builders, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display received the prestigious Best Strategy Award at the System Builder Breakaway in Alberta, Canada, earlier this month. To help system builders understand the costs involved in purchasing large orders of monitors, NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display introduced the concept of ‘Total Cost of Partnership.’ The new program not only identifies hidden costs, it also educates companies on price protection and MRA shipping.

Shipping and Availability

The NEC AccuSync LCD5V, LCD7V and LCD9V are available in April through authorized NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display system builders and resellers in white and black cabinet options. NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics Display’s monitors are backed by a three-year limited warranty including backlight. Technical support is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 1-800-632-4662.
