In addition to its 42-inch curved display, NEC today unveiled one of its largest conventional displays yet in the form of the LCD3090WQXi. The 30-inch display is built for video editors or nearly any user concerned with faithful above all else. Through new 12-bit color processing and a new backlight, the screen accurately paints 102 percent of the NTSC color gamut and nearly 98 percent of the Adobe RGB space, by NEC's estimates. It also actively corrects color uniformity problems and other issues.
Dual DVI video inputs provide the LCD with either a pure digital signal, with HDCP encryption for Blu-ray and other protected HD video formats, or else a dual-mode analog and digital output for content that can go without the extra copy protection measures. NEC notes that the display includes a connection that can accept most color calibration hardware without plugging into a computer itself, and expects the 3090WQXi to ship in February at a price of $2,200.
