EIZO has been releasing monitors of all sorts for years now, so it isn't that surprising to learn that it finished developing its latest model, one Foris series member primarily intended for multimedia.
When it comes to displays, particularly monitors, they come in many sizes and with different levels of performance and image quality.
It appears that the newest model from EIZO that the consumer market will soon gain access to is the sort that fits best in multimedia-centric electronic installations.
More specifically, it has a good visibility and very wide viewing angles, along with the IPS (in-plane switching) technology, plus LED backlighting.
For those that don't know all details, LED not only drives power consumption very low compared to other technologies, but it also enhances image quality.
That said, the specifications of the EIZO Foris FS2332, as it is called, include a brightness of 250 cd/m2, a response time of 6ms GTG (gray to gray) and a contrast ratio of 1,500:1.
The item also comes with a pair of built-in speakers (0.5W) and four video connectors, those being D-Sub, DVI and dual-HDMI.
All the above features are crammed inside a frame of 23 inches in diagonal and make a full set of multimedia-ready panel features along with the native resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (Full HD) and the viewing angles of 178 degrees, both horizontally and vertically.
EIZO also threw in the benefits of some special extras, like 10-bit gamma correction, the Smart Resolution technology (tweaks settings to enhance image clarity) and an EchoView brightness sensor (adjusts brightness depending on ambient light).
Backed by a five-year warranty, the EIZO Foris FS2332
has not yet been given a price, but this final mystery should be dispelled next month (July, 2011 ), when sales should start.
