So, I wonder what "106% NTSC color capability" means.  If NTSC
is a standard then how can you have over 100% capability?

The color primaries of NTSC(1979) form a triangle in the CIE 1931 color space that has an area of 0.104 (if I recall my math correctly). If the display has a color gamut with an area of 0.11, it can be said to have "106% NTSC color capability". It could be for example a sRGB or PAL display.

Now, that sounds like were the folks from ViewSonic are coming from...
