New monitors feature ECO Mode technology and tilt functionality
NEC Display Solutions of America (NEC), a provider of commercial LCD displays and projectors, has expanded its AccuSync Series with the addition of three new desktop monitors. The new monitors include two widescreen displays and one standard-aspect display.
The company claims that the 19” AS191, 19” widescreen AS191WM and 22” widescreen
AS221WM monitors consume up to 48% less energy than their predecessors. All three models offer an EPEAT Silver rating, and ENERGY STAR 5.0 and TCO 5.0 compliance.
According to NEC, the ECO Mode technology allows users to maneuver between two energysavings modes. Additionally, the tilt functionality provides flexibility and enhanced comfort for AccuSync users.
Some AccuSync Series features include VGA and DVI connectivity, up to 1000:1 contrast ratio, 5ms fast response time, and carbon footprint meter for tracking of carbon savings. The company added that the AS191WM and AS221WM are touch integratable, space-saving, down-firing multimedia speakers with headphone jack.

These three new models carry on that long-standing tradition of dependable, high-quality and environmentally-responsible desktop monitors without the large price tag.”
