Here comes another 21:9 ultra-wide display, this time from NEC. The Japanese firm has just introduced the MultiSync EA294WMi, a slim 29-inch 21:9 display ideal for multi-tasking. Joining LG’s EA93, Dell’s U2913WM and AOC’s Q2963PM, NEC’s model also uses IPS LCD panel and features a 2560×1080 ultra-wide resolution.
The EA294WMi features a 178/178-degree viewing angle, thanks to its IPS panel. It also offers 25,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio and 1000:1 typical contrast. The split-screen Picture by Picture/Side by Side (PBP) functionality allows users to see content from two sources at the same time on one monitor, enhancing productivity and efficiency. Compare to its competitors, the 21:9 MultiSync provides more input connectors, including DisplayPort, HDMI with MHL, two DVI-D and two VGA D-sub. Its support for MHL allows users to show content from their MHL-compatible smartphone. There is also a 4-port USB 2.0 hub and integrated 1Wx2 speakers.
NEC’s ultra-wide display also features Smart Sensing technology to deliver proper display brightness by automatically detecting your work conditions with ambient light and human sensors. The ControlSync technology, on the other hand, allows you to control up to six EA294WMi displays in a multi-monitor setup. The monitor also supports DICOM Simulation and comes with a ergonomic adjustable stand with 130mm height-adjust, tilt, swivel and pivot.
The MultiSync EA294WMi will be released in May for $799.
