NEC is a provider of displays for computers that are made for all sorts of business and consumer uses. Nowhere is accurate color and resolution more important than in the medical setting. With poor colors and resolution, a doctor looking at digital x-rays and scene could miss key factors that could result in an incorrect diagnosis. NEC has a new high-resolution medical display called the MD301C4 that has hit the market.
The screen has a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and 1000:1 contrast ratio. The brightness is rated for 350cd/m2. Out of the box, the thing is calibrated for DICOM grayscale functions and it has an automatic luminance control to change the brightness as needed. The internal look up tablets is 14-bit 3D programmable.
The screen has dual DisplayPort inputs, dual DVI ports, and two up and three down USB ports. The viewing angles are 178-degrees and it supports 1.07 billion colors. The screen is not cheap at $3,499, but for the medical setting it's meant for that is not a bad price overall.
My Take: This is a high-end 30-inch screen meant for the medical office and has the features to make it extremely accurate. Those just looking for a big screen for graphic design or gaming need to shop elsewhere.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
