The NEC PA311-D is the new top model of the professional NEC monitors. Its 10-bit (without FRC!) IPS panel with 14-bit 3D LUT has a real DCI 4K resolution of 4.096x2.160 pixels and covers 100% of the AdobeRGB color space, 97.4% of the NTSC and 99.9% of the sRGB. Optionally it can be purchased in combination with a SpectraViewII Color Calibration Kit (model PA311D-BK-SV), which can be used to calibrate the color representation.
The screen brightness corresponds with 350 nits to the current standard. Using Picture-in-Picture and Picture-by-Picture modes, the images of two computers can be displayed side by side or on top of each other. NEC&s MultiProfiler software provides control over the five image modes, including loading any ICC profile directly into the monitor for optimal color space adjustment. The HLG and PQ HDR standards are supported.
NEC Multisync PA311-D
In terms of interfaces, the NEC PA311-D offers a choice between normal and mini DisplayPort 1.4, two HDMI 2.0 ports and one USB-C port with power support, i.e. a notebook connected via this port can be supplied with (up to 65W) power. In addition, there is a USB hub with 3 Up and 3 Down ports for KVM functionality.
A presence sensor helps save power by turning off the screen when no one is sitting in front of it. The PA311D can be adjusted 150mm in height, rotated 90° (pivot), rotated ±45° sideways or tilted +30°/-5°.
NEC Multisync PA311-D I/O
Handy for managing multiple NEC monitors: the NaViSet Administrator 2 tool enables the administration of multiple monitors and their dents over the network on the computer. Using DisplaySync Pro (a type of KVM switch), up to three computers can be connected to the NEC PA311-D and controlled with a single keyboard and mouse.
NEC offers a four-year warranty on the MultiSync PA311D. It is already available in stores at prices starting at approx. 3,300 Euro or around 3,500 in the version with the SpectraView colour calibration kit. The matching optional anti-glare hood HD2PA31 costs around 400 euros.
