Chicago, Ill.NEC Display Solutions of America announced an internal HD-SDI video I/O card, compatible with its Multeos Multi-Function Series and select NEC MultiSync Information Display Series large-screen LCD displays.
The HD-SDI card is the latest development in NEC's broadcasting initiatives. The card installs internally vs. an external converter device, which would require additional cables and power source. Because of the HD-SDI card's ability to fit into the option slot, setup time is reduced.
The card is compatible with many of NEC's products, including the MultiSync LCD4020, LCD4620, LCD5220, LCD6520P and LCD6520L, and Multeos M40 and M46. The card is not compatible with NEC's large-screen AVT models, as these versions' expansion slots already are occupied by a digital tuner.
Pricing: Estimated street pricing is $1,499.99; minimum advertised pricing is $1,199.99.
Availability: The HD-SDI card (SB-L007KK) will be available for May 2008 shipment.
