Feature-Rich, Superior Performance, EPEAT Gold Desktop Monitor Delivers Exceptional Quality
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of commercial and residential LCD and plasma displays and projectors, announced today the launch of its new 22-inch MultiSync EA221WM widescreen LCD monitor. This is the second MultiSync EA Series product to be introduced following the launch of the 26-inch EA261WM in June.

The MultiSync EA221WM is a premium enterprise display built with top-performing panel technology, and boasting a 5ms response time, a wide-viewing angle of up to 176 degrees and an ultra-high contrast ratio of 1000:1 for optimized image quality. Functionality is enhanced by the four-way ergonomic capability (height, swivel, tilt, pivot/portrait), a four-port USB hub, built-in multimedia speakers and cutting-edge technologies. Its widescreen design complements the growing trend of wide-format applications and helps users realize greater productivity, especially when viewing spreadsheets, Internet pages and extended emails, as well as working simultaneously in multiple/side-by-side application windows.

"The new MultiSync EA Series brings premium NEC quality to those users who demand exceptional technology, rich features, top performance and high productivity," said Lynn Gu, Product Manager at NEC Display Solutions. "The full ergonomics and outstanding image quality built into this display make a big difference in the user's experience. The MultiSync EA221WM is also designed with the environment in mind as environmental stewardship is critical to keeping our customers competitive in today's business climate."

Building on its environmental leadership, NEC has registered the MultiSync EA221WM display as EPEAT Gold. As an EPEAT requirement, the MultiSync EA221WM also is ENERGY STAR® compliant. Products that earn the ENERGY STAR designation prevent greenhouse gas emissions by meeting strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy. By leveraging NEC's ECO ModeTM, users can lower power consumption and the amount of waste heat released into the environment. The built-in carbon footprint meter informs and motivates responsible use of the display by calculating and tracking carbon savings.
