NEC PlasmaSync 42XM2


NEC's high-resolution 42in. plasma display is more suited to video tasks than slide presentations, although with some tweaking an acceptable PC display is possible.

Product Specifications

The 61-inch wide plasma monitors from the PlasmaSync 61XM2+series are equipped with "Enhanced Split Screen" ability - a high quality, high performance Double Picture function. NEC's own fully digitalized signal-processing circuits enable clear, high definition, progressive scanning images without signal deterioration. This has resulted in significant improvement in readability of the sub-screen. The double picture display is enabled through "side-by-side" and "picture-in-picture" screen modes available on all input systems. In the side-by-side mode, three aspect ratio patterns can be selected from the full-sized display. This monitor supports information systems combining text data and advertisements, as well as vertically installed digital advertisement systems. In the side-by-side mode, the screen can be enlarged by up to 900% enabling creation of presentations that consist of small data enlargement and their comparison. The monitor is equipped with a variety of functions that are useful for presentations. For example, the "Zoom Navigation" function enables enlargement of any portion of the main screen and its display on the sub-screen for confirmation. The "Picture Freeze" function allows storing of images and their display on the sub-screen. The "Seamless Switch" function enables switching of two input signals without any time lag. This monitor responds to needs for instant signal switching making it appropriate for various applications ranging from monitoring systems to bowling alley score display systems.
