NEC Display Launches 31-Inch 4K Desktop Displays for Color-Critical Applications

NEC Display Solutions of America today announced the launch of the MultiSync PA311D, a new 31-inch IPS wide color gamut display with a 4K (4096×2160) resolution.

“The MultiSync PA311D will take its place as our flagship monitor in the PA Series of professional desktop displays,” said Kevin Christopherson, director of product marketing at NEC Display Solutions, in the company announcement.

“It provides higher resolution, along with better black levels and contrast. Further, the PA311D includes USB-C connectivity with 65W charging and several new cutting-edge features to meet the color-critical needs of professional graphic designers, photographers and video producers,” he said.

The PA311D provides “incredibly accurate color due to each unit’s individual factory calibration,” according to the NEC announcement.

It features true 10-bit color with a 14-bit 3D LUT and supports all professional color spaces (sRGB, Adobe RGB and DCI-P3) and standard video color spaces (Rec. 709, Rec. 2100). Additionally, it supports the HLG and PQ HDR standards.

Additionally, Picture in Picture, Picture by Picture and ICC profile support simplify color-critical workflows.

The PA311D is touch-capable and comes equipped with a 150mm adjustable stand with tilt and swivel capabilities. It is also available with an optional hood (HD2PA31).
