NEC MultiSync PA Series monitors feature a custom-designed color processor called the SpectraView Engine. This sophisticated processor, combined with internal luminance, temperature and time monitoring of the monitor, and individual characterization and calibration of each unit during production, results in an unparalleled level of color control, accuracy and stability.

The wide color gamut and high-contrast LCD panel used on the monitor, coupled with the SpectraView Engine, provide the utmost in versatility; from the ability to accurately emulate colorspaces such as AdobeRGB and sRGB, to performing printer output emulations using ICC Profiles and internal 3D Look Up Tables.

Picture-in-Picture (PIP) configuration

The powerful video processor in the MultiSync PA Series allows two video signals to be viewed at once in a secondary PIP or Picture-by-Picture (PBP) window configuration. The picture of the secondary window can even be configured to display in a different colorspace, allowing functions like simultaneous viewing of printer emulations, or even human color vision deficiencies.

DisplaySync Pro and USB hub configuration

The USB hub integrated into the MultiSync PA Series can also be managed through MultiProfiler to function as a Keyboard / Video / Mouse (KVM) switch. This feature allows the mapping of the two USB upstream ports to the various monitor inputs, which is useful for managing multiple computers attached to the unit.

Automatic generation of ICC/ColorSync profiles

MultiProfiler automatically generates and updates ICC profiles for the monitor as the color modes are selected or adjusted. This activity, coupled with the internal stabilization and highly accurate characterization and calibration of each monitor during production, reduces the need for a profiling package to profile the monitor.

Flexible

Communications with the monitor can be performed either through the video cable using the Display Data Channel / Command Interface (DDC/CI), or via an USB upstream connection to the unit (using optional USB cable). This allows for better compatibility with different host PC platforms.

Yes. When there is no OSD shown on the screen, press the up or down arrow buttons on the right side of the monitor to quickly access the Picture Mode.

However, be aware that the ICC/ColorSync profile for the newly selected Picture Mode will not be generated and registered with the Color Management System if the OSD is used rather than the MultiProfiler application. If you are not using a color managed workflow then this is not normally an issue.

Also, if you are switching between color modes based on the same basic color settings (gamma, color gamut and white point), or between a normal Picture Mode and a Print Emulation based on that normal Picture Mode, then the ICC/ColorSync profiles will be the same and the OSD can be used.
It is not possible to use the OSD controls to adjust the Custom Picture Mode settings. Use MultiProfiler to make any adjustments.
The profile is still a display profile, and represents the color gamut of the monitor as selected on the Print Emulation pages of the Color Configuration Wizard. So, for example, if you selected that the Display Gamut is sRGB, then the profile created will reflect a color gamut of sRGB.
NEC MultiSync PA Series monitors are individually factory calibrated using a highly accurate lab-grade color measurement device. This calibration is combined with internal luminance, temperature and time monitoring of the display monitor in order to provide stable and accurate color. The internal SpectraView Engine color processor takes these factory measurements together with the internal sensor values and automatically calculates and compensates for color changes, and allows color values such as white point and brightness to be specified in absolute values.
Yes. The SpectraView software is available to calibrate the monitor if necessary. In addition, the OSD or MultiProfiler controls can be used together with a 3rd party application to manually adjust the monitor together with an external color sensors if necessary.
