NEC adds high-end 24-inch monitor for graphics pros

NEC unveils SpectraView Reference 241 with 10-bit-per-colour performance

NEC has released the SpectraView Reference 241, the first model in a new range for creative pros. The company says that for maximum image quality and stability, the new model features a hardware-calibratable, wide-format LC display that offers 10-bit-per-colour performance. This allows it to output colours that covers 98 per cent of the Adobe RGB colour space.

The monitor has a 3D LUT (Look-UP Table) for more precise colour space emulation, while a 14-bit LUT for each RGB channel provides high-end colour control and gamma correction. NEC's Digital Uniformity Control (ColorComp) and 'Backlight Ageing Control' ensure controlled and peak performance throughout the entire lifecycle, says the company.

The SpectraView Reference 241 has an IPS panel -- which NEC says is designed specifically for colour-critical applications such as pre-press, soft proofing, DTP and professional photography. Citing its 178-degree viewing angle and minimal visible colour shift, the company says that the P-IPS technology offers greater viewing stability than any other LCD panel technology and is the technology of choice for users who care about colour accuracy.

The NEC SpectraView Reference 241 is available through retailers in black, at a price of £1,419 plus VAT. The package includes NEC's SpectraView Profiler 4.1 software on CD, a hood, and an individual SpectraView certification report, providing proof of the individual performance of each screen.

The new SpectraView series will be expanded later this year to include 23-inch, 27-inch and 30-inch models

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
