Delivers wide viewing angles of up to 178º horizontally and vertically (up to 89º up, down, left and right) with less color shift and without any glare, reflection or distortion.


Allows up to 3 inputs VGA, DVI-I and DVI-D to be connected to a single monitor. Allows for each of the three signals to be displayed with the press of a button.


This electronically improves screen uniformity and compensates for differences in color/grayscale and luminance using newly designed signal processing circuitry.

X-Light Pro

X-LightTM Pro uses a internal backlight sensor to maintain a consistent light output for the useful life of the display as well as correcting for short term fluctuations. This allows the display to maintain consistancy and calibration for use in medical and color critical applications.


Automatically adjusts the backlight depending on the brightness of ambient lighting conditions. Also allows the monitor to be set to automatically enter a power-saving mode when the ambient lighting falls below a predetermined value (i.e.when office lights are shut off at the end of the day), which can significantly reduce energy expenses.

Rapid Response

Provides for uninterrupted display of full motion video with response times as quick as 4ms. It delivers streaming video without noticeable ghosting or blurring, while achieving as many as 250 frames per second (fps). This remarkably quick motion makes displays better than ever for gaming and video applications such as presentations and streaming web video.

Cable Comp

For analog inputs only. Corrects for input signal distortion caused by long cables and low output levels of video cards.This technology uses a digitized signal delay circuit to automatically compensate for each red, green and blue cable's length and video signal delay, ensuring sharp image reproduction.

ECO Mode

Eco-Mode conserve energy by allowing you to define a setting for the backlight at a 50 or 75% brightness level. Also calculates power saving in Watts Per Hour

Tile Matrix

Allows you to build video walls of various configurations (up to 5 x 5) through the advanced OSD.

Tile Comp

Designed to work in tandem with Tile Matrix on NEC monitors. TileComp automatically adjusts for the width of the monitor bezels to compensate for geometrical distortions. However some data on the screen will be lost in the area of the bezels.


No Touch Auto Adjust allows the monitor's image settings to be automatically adjusted to optimal settings upon intial power on.

Spectra View

Featuring state-of-the art calibrator and software, the Spectraview color calibration solution helps deliver accurate, consistent and repeatable color performance. Performs hardware monitor calibration and generates ICC profiles that can be used with graphics software.


A recommended default color setting that helps achieve a consistent color environment for PC-based applications. With sRGB, the image colors seen by the user on his/her screen can be reproduced elsewhere, such as printers.


On Screen Display controls allow users to quickly and easily adjust all elements of their screen image via simple-to-use on screen menus.
