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

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
