DICOM

DICOM (Part 14 Grayscale Display Function)

Based on the human contrast sensitivity (CS), this function makes it easier to see small relative changes in luminance in the bright areas of the image than in the dark areas. Some level of similarity in Grayscale perception or basic appearance for a given image between Display Systems of different Luminance is also assured. The Luminance difference that the average human observer can just perceive is known as a Just Noticeable Difference (JND). The JND Index is the input value to the GSDF, such that one step in JND Index results in a luminance difference that is a JND.

DICOM Simulation

DICOM Simulation

Predefined gray scale allocation for an accuracte depiction of details in medical graphics (e.g. X-ray images). DICOM is a standard from the field of medicine and defines a standardised display function for gray scale images based on human sensitivity to contrast.

High Bright

NEC’s ‚High Bright‘ Mode

Projectors have traditionally been supplied by default with the lamp set to maximum brightness, which was usually marked as 'normal mode'. However, the average lamp brightness in new projectors has steadily increased over time, and we have reached a point where using the preset maximum brightness is now simply unnecessary for most people's requirements. This was the catalyst for NEC to change the names of its projector lamp work modes coinciding with the launch of its new M Series projector range.


Rather than having the 'Normal' setting being configured for maximum brightness, and then having two progressively dimmer ' ECO ' modes, NEC opted to configure its newest projectors so the 'Normal' mode has the equivalent settings of the previous ' ECO 1' mode, thereby renaming the previous ' ECO 2' mode to just ' ECO ' and the previous 'Normal' setting to be called 'High Bright'.

Hollywood Quality Video

Human Sensor

Human Sensor


Desktop Displays:
The human sensor is a smart feature available on most of the NEC desktop monitors which automatically powers the display down and up again subject to the user’s presence. This innovative ECO function is sensitive to the user’s presence and helps significantly to reduce power consumption and carbon output by powering down immediately when not in use. Businesses can realise over 30% savings* on their operational budget and carbon usage targets by standardising on NEC monitors featuring a Human Sensor.

* Calculation based on UK average electricity rates. Assumes average user is away from their desk for approx. 3 hours throughout the day as identified in a recent NEC ECO survey, based on results from 287 people.

Large Format Displays:

The IPS (In plane switching) panel technology has always found particular favour in the colour-critical display industry (graphic design, pre-press, soft proofing, photo- and video-editing, CAD-CAM), as well as mission-critical multi-screen configurations (medical diagnosis, financial trading rooms). The wide viewing angle with negligible colour shift means that image date is accurately and reliably communicated to all users from all viewing positions. Additionally IPS LCD colour reproduction offers a depth and realism of colour reproduction, in which all nuances can be appreciated.

Keystone Correction

Keystone Correction

If the image is projected onto the screen at an angle, the display could be distorted. Electronic Keystone Correction compensates for this distortion through calculations made in the projector. If projection at a right-angle is not possible, electronic Keystone Correction provides an effective solution. However, the image quality suffers somewhat as a result of the necessary digital scaling of the image contents.

RoHS

RoHS

EU directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic devices (RoHS). This directive basically prohibits the use of six hazardous substances in the manufacture of various types of electrical and electronic devices. NEC installed wide-ranging in-house analysis systems to ensure reliable conformity with the RoHS directive. The new RoHS regulations apply to all products brought onto the European market as from July 2006.

RoHS 2

RoHS 2

The RoHS 2 directive (2011/65/EU) is an evolution of the original directive, became law on 21 July 2011 and took effect 2 January 2013. It addresses the same substances as the original directive while improving regulatory conditions and legal clarity. It requires periodic re-evaluations that facilitate gradual broadening of its requirements to cover additional electronic and electrical equipment, cables and spare parts.

The CE logo now indicates compliance and RoHS 2 declaration of conformity is now detailed: Today, a product sold with a valid CE mark must satisfy the RoHS 2 directive (and other CE requirements). This includes the CE required Declaration of Conformance (DoC) document and technical documentation as created by the manufacturer. The DoC details applicable directives and includes sign off by a corporate spokesperson. However, the CE mark does not necessarily indicate that a given product has minimal hazardous substances, as even products exempt under RoHS 2 may display it .

X-Light® 3

X-Light® 3

NEC X-Light TM 3 ensures that brightness values and colour settings remain constant and stable over the entire operating lifetime of the display. An RGB 3-color sensor integrated within the front display bezel directly measures the brightness as well as white point, and automatically adjusts the backlighting to the required settings. This means that more exact measurements (i.e. exact setting values) are achieved, since the sensor being situated outside of the LCD module ensures that the measurements correspond exactly to what is being seen by the viewer.

X-Light® Pro

X-Light® Pro

The X-Light® Pro function ensures that brightness values and colour temperature settings remain stable during the warming up period of the display. Therefore a sensor measures brightness and colour temperature of the backlight and corrects, and stabilises it automatically.
