CHICAGO – May 7, 2019 – NEC Display Solutions of America, a leading provider of commercial digital signage solutions, announced today that three desktop displays, the MultiSync® E271N, EA231WU and EA241F, and the large format E657Q, received the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient of 2019 Award. The award recognizes products that deliver cutting-edge energy efficiency along with the latest technological innovation, representing the best of ENERGY STAR® products.
The 27” E271N, 23” EA231WU and the 24” EA241F desktop displays feature LED backlighting for industry-leading low power consumption while using less hazardous materials. The displays ship with ECO Mode enabled, which allows users to manually adjust the display’s brightness to save power and reduce energy costs. In addition, a carbon footprint and cost meter allows users to quickly and easily track the savings of green gas emissions. Finally, human and ambient light sensors on the EA231WU and EA241F automatically detect work conditions to determine the proper display brightness, minimizing power consumption.
“We are honored to receive the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient Award, as it serves as validation of our commitment to bringing environmentally friendly products to market,” said Art Marshall, senior product manager for desktop displays. “Our goal is always to meet and exceed the Energy Star standard in the whole design of the unit to produce not just the best desktop displays in the market, but the most efficient as well.”
Meanwhile, the large-format E657Q display is ENERGY STAR® 7.0-certified and features a 4K UHD panel with direct LED backlighting, which reduces power consumption for eco-friendly digital signage. A 24-hour scheduler makes it easy to schedule on/off times, while the wake on video signal feature conserves power when no video source is connected.
“Producing environmentally responsible products is part of who we are as a company,” said Kevin Christopherson, director of marketing for large format and desktop displays. “NEC pushes the technological boundaries when it comes to making products that are friendly to the planet across all product lines, and the ENERGY STAR® Most Efficient Award is proof of our commitment.”
