Nybot decks out new trading floor with NEC-Mitsubishi flat panel monitors

The New York Board of Trade (Nybot) is to roll out more than 900 flat panel LCD desktop monitors from NEC-Mitsubishi Electronics across its new trading facility in lower Manhattan.

The exchange lost its entire facility in the September 11th World Trade Center terrorist attacks and has since been operating out of its backup site in Long Island City, Queens, New York. Nybot announced in February it was leasing space in the New York Mercantile Exchange (Nymex) building on One North End Avenue, with its pits to open for business in September 2003.

The contract - part of a $30 million project to build a new trading floor consisting of 12 trading pits and 180 booths - includes the supply of more than 700 20.1-inch NEC MultiSync LCD2080UX monitors and 200 15 inch NEC MultiSync LCD1560V monitors.

Nybot says the new ultra thin-frame bezel monitors will be used in the booths and will be hung over the trading pits to deliver the most up-to-date functionality.

The monitors utilise the vendor's NaViSet software based on Display Data Channel/Command Interface (DDC/CI) protocol. Nybot will also use NaViSet(TM) Administrator software to manage the monitors simultaneously from a central system.

Patrick Gambaro, interim chief operating officer, Nybot, says a variety of different LCD monitors were evaluated for the new trading floor.

"The NEC MultiSync LCD monitors exceeded our expectations by delivering new productivity-enhancing technologies and excellent images that allow us to better see and respond to opportunities," he adds.
