About MultiProfiler

MultiProfiler is designed as a companion to NEC MultiSync monitors that feature the powerful and sophisticated SpectraView Engine; such as the P and PA Series desktop displays as well as several large-screen displays (please see Supported Display Monitors).

SpectraView Engine equipped MultiSync monitors utilize this sophisticated processor, combined with internal luminance, temperature, and time monitoring, and individual characterization and calibration of each unit during production, to provide an unparalleled level of color control, accuracy and stability.

The high-contrast LCD panel used on the monitor, coupled with the SpectraView Engine, provide the utmost in versatility such as the ability to accurately emulate colorspaces like AdobeRGB and sRGB.

MultiProfiler uses a two-way communications link with the display monitor to perform adjustments. Two different methods of communications are possible:
