For those of you who yearn for perfect picture when you’re editing, NEC might just have it: two 4K monitors (one 32 inch, one 24 inch) reproduce 99% of the Adobe RGB color gamut. Though they were released at the end of last year, I think they’re worth taking a look at because they might have slipped under your radar. With companies like LG, Samsung and Sony all releasing 4K monitors, it’s easy to glance over NEC, which is the personal favorite monitor company of my friend and incredible retoucher Pratik Naik.

These high resolution displays feature IPS panel technology with wide viewing angles (178° horizontal/vertical) and ergonomic adjustability. The LED backlighting allows for a slimmer profile, lighter weight and increased power savings. This model also boasts a height-adjustable stand (130mm) and full connectivity with DisplayPort, HDMI / MHL and DVI-D inputs. The EA244UHD includes touch-sensitive On Screen Display controls, a Picture by Picture (PBP) mode for two inputs onscreen at the same time, streamlined cable management and ControlSync technology, which allows users to control up to six units in a multi-monitor configuration. I’m just going to leave these here…
