NEC (Finally) Launches 43" LCD Display

NEC has finally and at long last officially launched the NEC CRV43, the company's 43" wraparound (curved) LCD display. The device was initially shown off as a prototype at CES and other trade shows in years past, but the company is now saying it will be released in July at a price of US$7,999.

The device sports the following features:

  1. Seamless curved screen, which eliminates bezel and screen gap issues
  2. 2880 x 900 double WXGA native resolution
  3. 200 cd/m brightness
  4. 0.02ms Rapid Response
  5. 10,000:1 contrast ratio
  6. Wide color gamut with 100% coverage of sRGB and 99.3% coverage of Adobe RGB
  7. Single link DVI-D and HDMI 1.3 input connectors
  8. USB 2.0 connectivity for easy use of peripherals
  9. Front panel controls
  10. On Screen Display (OSD) and software-based GUI, which enables advanced display control options

NEC confirmed with The Mac Observer that the NEC CRV43 is HDCP-compliant, meaning that it will work with Macs with video cards that can support the resolution. More specifically, NEC spokespersons told us that if your Mac has DVI-out, it should support this display.
