Looking for a high-end monitor to do justice to your high-end CAD and simulation models? NEC Display Solutions has added a 30-inch, wide-format professional display to its lineup, specifically taking aim at CAD and CAE, among other high-end applications.
The MultiSync LCD3090WXi offers 2,560 X 1,600 pixel resolution along with a calibration function that allows the adjustment of luminance, white point and gamma curve without the need for an external sensor or PC. The new model also has a contrast ratio of up to 1000:1 and a response time of 6 ms. A special bonus for CAD/CAE users: The display features “overdrive technology,” which allows it to offer gray switching times of 6ms, with a contrast ratio of up to 1000:1 at a maximum brightness of 350 cd/m2. In NEC translation, this litany of technical specs means the unit is well-suited to display moving images with sharp clarity. The NEC site estimates street pricing for the unit around $2,199.99.
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
