NEC debuts tilting 24" LCD
NEC has announced a new entry into its MultiSync 70 line of LCDs, the LCD2470WVX. Measuring 24 inches in a widescreen format, the monitor is capable of resolutions up to 1900x1200, and supports the full range of HD ratios through an HDCP-compatible DVI-D port. Owners can also connect the monitor through VGA input. One of the primary features of the monitor is actually its stand, which lets users pivot, swivel and tilt the display for whatever alignment works best, including pure vertical. A thin bezel makes it more suited for multi-monitor use.
Brightness on the display is rated at 400cd/m2, with a 1,000:1 contrast ratio; response time meanwhile is a short 5ms. To further improve appearance, the monitor uses a technology called Advanced Dynamic Video to tweak brightness, color and contrast. The screen currently has no official release date; also, because it is aimed at businesses, buyers must check with NEC for prices.
