NEC Display Solutions’ New MultiSync SC40 and SC46 Combine Premier Display Technology, Video Innovation
NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading stand-alone provider of plasma displays, LCD desktop and commercial large-screen LCDs, and projectors, announced today a new line of LCD flat panel displays for home theater and home-entertainment environments. The MultiSync Residential Series offers superior image quality and performance, and an unparalleled feature set designed for custom installations.

Unlike consumer-grade LCD TVs, the MultiSync Residential Series features a proprietary ASIC chip set for superb video quality and crisp, clear graphics. The 40-inch MultiSync SC40 and 46-inch MultiSync SC46 include connectivity features for every home application, as well as the ability to be configured with a state-of-the-art ATSC HD tuner. The MultiSync Residential Series is also engineered with a ruggedized expansion slot for functional upgradeability, giving consumers peace of mind.

“MultiSync Residential monitors deliver full HD 1080p performance and give consumers a powerful display for today’s applications while preparing them for next-generation technologies,” said Hans Baumann, Senior Product Manager for NEC Display Solutions. “These state-of-the art displays exhibit a sleek, yet simple design that provides an unsurpassed viewing experience, regardless of the content, input or environment.”

The Residential Series offers full HD 1080p resolution at 1920 x 1080 and a 16:9 aspect ratio for superior video performance. The professional-grade, high-quality components deliver improved image quality and performance over the life of the products.

The new NEC MultiSync SC40 and SC46 include the following features:

  • HDCP (High Definition Content Protection), which can be used with future Hi-Def components
  • HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface) – all-digital audio/visual interface transmits uncompressed streams
  • Auto-adjust color scheme for even-looking, true-color pictures with multiple gamma curves, designed specifically for different applications

  • Enhanced AccuColor 6-way color control for improved color matching
  • 10-bit Faroudja DCDi chip for a crisp and true picture
