Press release:

NEC Display Solutions strengthens focus on specialist markets with two new appointments

London, 22 June 2011 – NEC Display Solutions further strengthens its focus on specialist vertical markets with new appointments within the medical and colour sectors. With specialist products already established in these sectors, NEC seeks to further strengthen and build market share, demonstrating its commitment to niche high-end markets. Steve Cotton takes on the role of Colour and Media Sales Specialist focusing on the creative and print markets with the award winning SpectraView® Displays whilst Freddie Elliott is appointed Sales Manager for NEC’s Medical Displays in the healthcare sector.

NEC’s SpectraView Reference series offers a superior colour critical solution for the most demanding pre-press and soft-proofing applications, as well as for professional colour-critical image and video editing. Cotton, previously Account Manager at Eizo, joins NEC as the company launches its flagship 30inch SpectraView model.

The 27inch SpectraView Reference 271 has been voted the ‘Best Expert Photo Monitor’ by members of the Technical Image Press Association (TIPA), further endorsing the brand. For semi-professional graphics and photographic work, NEC’s PA range offers accurate, consistent and repeatable colour performance.

SpectraView models and the PA series are distributed across Europe by Color Confidence, the leading value added distributor in the digital imaging markets.

“NEC is a highly respected quality brand with a broad range of products already established in the colour sector,” says Cotton. “We are well placed to meet the demands of this specialist sector and I relish the challenge to strengthen and grow NEC’s position in this exacting market place.”

Freddie Elliott takes on the role of UK Healthcare Sales Manager at a time when opportunities in the medical market ramp up as hospitals look to replace and upgrade their PACS systems. NEC Display Solutions have the widest product portfolio of LCD and projected display solutions for the healthcare market, combining the latest innovations in display technology with Japanese design quality and reliability.

Elliott said “with a firm platform to build on, NEC is already a well trusted name in the medical field and we will seek new opportunities with our MDView Series monitors to achieve growth in what is a very specialised market.” Elliott brings to NEC a wealth of knowledge with extensive experience in sales management within the healthcare sector having previously worked for companies such as Fuji Film and Medtronic.

The new appointments ensure that NEC Display Solutions is equipped to meet the challenges ahead and demonstrate the significance NEC places in vertical markets and the investment made in delivering products and solutions to meet the exacting demands from professional niche sectors.

Simon Jackson, VP for NEC Display Solutions commented “we are delighted to have Steve and Freddie on board, they offer great knowledge and experience in their specialist areas. With such a high calibre team, exceptional products and NEC’s enduring reputation, I am confident that we are well placed to meet the challenges ahead.“ He added „this is an exciting time for the company as we build on our strengths and evolve toward a Total Display Solutions company.“

Hasselblad H4D-60 review

UPDATE 18 May, 2012: Hasseblad is set to reduce the price on the H4D cameras by as much as $11,000 / 6,200 Euros on the H4D-60, bringing the price to 23,900 euros ($30,995 / £21,995). Please see here for more details.

The last couple of decades have been turbulent for medium format camera manufacturers, but now after several well-known names have withdrawn, the market looks healthy. Two new unexpected entrants, Leica and Pentax have added to the dynamic at opposing ends of the pricing scale, forcing the two established system players to compete fiercely in their traditional rarefied role as well as the entry-level.

Partnering with both Leaf and Mamiya, Phase One has developed a trio of entry-level Mamiya DM models starting at under $14k/ £9k while continuing to offer a wide range of Phase One and Leaf backs, up to 80-megapixels. Through various offers and incentives these backs, are most likely to be partnered with the 645DF body but they are in fact compatible with a wide range of …

Fujifilm IS Pro UV-IR DSLR review

Fuji’s IS Pro is the up-date to maker’s earlier S3 UV-IR camera, and like that particular camera, the IS Pro adopts a modified image sensor that’s not shielded from UV or IR light. Consequently, with various filtration methods, the IS Pro is designed for Ultraviolet (UVA), visible and near Infrared photography.

Although there is a healthy demand for DSLRs with IR capability especially, and there are number of independent vendors (mainly in the US, but the UK also) that offer IR dedicated and full-spectrum conversion of current Nikon and Canon bodies, it’s anticipated the IS Pro will appeal largely to the scientific and forensic communities. With the departure of the S3 UV-IR, Fuji’s IS Pro continues to be the only dedicated full-spectrum interchangeable lens based DSLR that has professional-level support from a camera maker. As well as official product support and 12-month warranty, for government agencies and the like, the OEM status of the IS Pro will be particularly reassuring an…

Unlike the process of dithering liquid ink in an inkjet, dye-sublimation printers produce authentic continuous tone images with an analogous look like that of a conventional lab-produced print. They achieve this using thin c…
