LaCie 319 LCD monitor introduction : LaCie expands its 300 Series of high-end LCDs with the 19-inch LaCie 319 Monitor, designed for graphics professionals who are serious about color rendering. With specs similar to the 21-inch LaCie 321 LCD launched last fall, LaCie 319 is an ideal color solution for graphic designers, photographers and pre-press printing technicians. All 300 Series monitors come bundled with the LaCie blue eye pro calibration software that is designed to work specifically with these monitors and offers simple one-click calibration on a Mac or PC. LaCie 319 Monitor’s S-IPS panel presents pure, vibrant colors across the entire range thanks to its strong contrast ratio of 600:1 and impressive luminance of 270 cd/m2. |
LaCie - Advanced TFT technology|
LaCie 300 Series monitors utilize the most advanced TFT technology available today in conjunction with high-end backlighting. As a result, they offer the benefit of a CRT-grade color gamut in a flat screen monitor. The broad gamut of displayed colors is a wide 72% of the NTSC (National Television System Committee) video standards gamut and 100% of the EBU (European Broad- casting Union) gamut. With 10-bit gamma correction, LaCie 300 Series monitors provide the finest caliber of gamma control.
LaCie 319 monitor - Large viewing angle
This allows for smooth transitions in color gradients most noticeably in areas such as skin tones or shaded black-and-white images. The expansive viewing angles of 178° in all directions prevent grayscale inversion or any loss of contrast from the widest range of vantage points. An A4 page in 1:1 format can easily be displayed in both landscape and portrait mode.
LaCie 319 LCD display - Maximum ergonomic work-flow
For maximum ergonomic versatility, it can be height-adjusted, tilted and swiveled. Landscape mode can easily be changed a full 90° to portrait mode viewing. For the most demanding color-related tasks, such as photo retouching and on-screen proofing, the included LaCie monitor hood ensures that external lighting conditions and surrounding light sources do not interfere with the document’s intrinsic colors. The anti-glare hood includes a retractable hook for easy installation and placement of a colorimeter.
