EIZO Corporation (TSE: 6737) today announced the release of the FlexScan EV2785, its first 27-inch 4K monitor and one featuring a frameless design and USB Type-C connectivity.

FlexScan EV2785The 27-inch monitor has an Ultra-High-Definition (UHD) resolution of 4K (3840 x 2160 pixels), for a super fine pixel pitch of 163 ppi. This gives images and text great sharpness and clarity, while providing a large working space in which to run multiple applications.

The FlexScan EV2785 uses USB Type-C, where a single cable transmits video, audio, and USB signals and supports a super speed transfer rate of up to 5 Gbps. In addition, the FlexScan EV2785 can supply up to 60 watts of power for recharging notebook PCs and other devices via one USB Type-C cable, eliminating the need for separate power cables. The clarity of images and convenience of USB Type-C makes the monitor perfect for conventional office and CAD use, as well in ‘free address’ offices where workers frequently move around.

The monitor has a virtually frameless design with 1 mm bezels on the sides and top and 5.8 mm on the bottom, making it perfect for multi-monitor environments and distraction-free viewing. It comes with a unique space saving and ergonomic stand with 178 mm height adjustment and 344 degrees swivel. An attachable cable cover and cable holder also come with the monitor, for storing cables neatly behind the monitor. An optional stand bracket (PCSK-03) is available for attaching a thin client or mini PC to the back of the monitor without affecting stability or movement.

The cabinet comes in either black or white with matching cables, and features a new speaker design. With previous frameless models, the speakers emitted sound from the back of the monitor due to the housing design. With the FlexScan EV2785, they emit sound from the front while maintaining a frameless design for clearer, more direct sound without distracting people sitting behind the monitor.

EIZO’s proprietary software Screen InStyle lets users assign a preset mode to applications and adjust the circadian dimming and power settings of one monitor or all monitors in a multi-monitor setup. An additional feature allows switching of the monitor inputs using user-defined hot keys rather than the switches on the front of the monitor. A server app for Screen InStyle gives an administrator control over the settings of all EV2785 units in an installation from a central location. This is especially helpful for enterprises that want to ensure all units are adjusted properly and the power-save settings are activated.

Additional Features

  • One DisplayPort and two HDMI input terminals
  • Two USB downstream ports and a headphone jack
  • Electrostatic switches on the front of the monitor for easy control of the monitor’s settings
  • Flicker-free viewing at all brightness levels
  • sRGB, Movie, Paper, and two user-adjustable preset modes
  • 31 watts of power during typical use and zero watts of power consumed when the main power switch is off
  • Energy Star 7 and TCO Certified Displays 7 compliance
  • Five-year warranty and six-month guarantee against bright pixels from purchase date*

EIZO Corporation (TSE:6737) announced DuraVision FDF2382WT and FDS1782T – 23-inch and 17-inch touch panel monitors with 1920 x 1080 (full HD) and 1280 x 1024 resolution respectively.

fdf2382wt_fds1782t-pr.jpgThe DuraVision FDF2382WT and FDS1782T feature projected capacitive (PCAP) touch technology which is more durable and reliable compared to other touch technologies. Both screens feature a non-scratch surface with a hardness of 5H (Mohs scale), making them durable enough to withstand long-term use. This makes them especially suitable for environments with high public access such as kiosks, or for use in harsh environments such as factories.

Both monitors accept touch input from a bare finger or dedicated stylus. The screen detects up to 10 simultaneous touches so users can easily operate a variety of applications. With 10-point multitouch multiple people use the screen at the same time. Furthermore, compared to 5-point multitouch the screen has higher touch sensitivity, making writing with a finger or stylus smoother. For example, when a medical doctor writes notes about a patient’s condition, the monitors ensure each pen stroke comes out clear and as intended. This feature also benefits environments where delicate control over touch movement is needed – such as managing audio sliders in sound engineering or flight strips in air traffic control.

Furthermore, the DuraVision FDF2382WT and FDS1782T are equipped with technology which calibrates the touch sensitivity of the screen to minimise incorrect touch response due to environmental factors and electromagnetic noise. This ensures that the screen maintains accurate touch interaction during use.

When taking notes in a business meeting, signing digital documents, or in other situations where writing is called for, the monitors’ palm rejection technology allows the user’s hand to rest directly on the screen without causing unintended touch input. Furthermore, touch detection can quickly be toggled via the buttons on the monitor’s side so users can enable or disable touch functionality as the situation or environment calls for it.

The fully flat surface of both monitors provides a seamless touch experience that reaches to the edges of the screen. This makes swiping motions and scrolling a breeze.

The typical brightness of DuraVision FDF2382WT and FDS1782T are 260 cd/m2 and 350 cd/m2 respectively. The LED-backlit IPS panels have wide viewing angles that minimise colour shift and contrast changes when viewing the screen from the side. The surface of the panel is also coated with an anti-glare treatment for further clarity in bright ambient environments.

The reclining stand equipped with both monitors provides flexible positioning to allow them to rest on a desk like a laptop and recline back to the desired angle. This makes it easy to place the monitors in the ideal position for the most comfortable use in any environment.

Additional Features

  • Flicker-free display (FDF2382WT only)
  • DisplayPort, DVI-D, D-Sub inputs
  • 3-year manufacturer’s warranty

RadiForce RX560EIZO Corporation (TSE: 6737) today announced the release of the RadiForce RX560, a 21.3-inch 5 megapixel monitor ideal for breast imaging. It features space saving features and new functionality for improving reading room efficiency.

Breast cancer screenings are increasingly combining the use of mammography and ultrasound to view patients with high breast density. Furthermore, if breast cancer is suspected, various other tests may also be needed such as biopsy, breast MRI and CT – which all require colour monitors. The RadiForce RX560 is the world’s first medical monitor to use low temperature polysilicon (LTPS) liquid crystal display, and because of this, can reach the high brightness requirements needed for breast screening usually only possible in monochrome monitors. It can reach a brightness of up to 1100 cd/m2, meaning that it can display high-definition monochrome breast tomosynthesis and mammography images in addition to colour images such as ultrasound and pathology. Furthermore it has a high contrast ratio of 1500:1, approximating that of a monochrome monitor, displaying deep blacks without any washout.

The RadiForce RX560 is either sold as a single monitor, or as a combined dual monitor set called RadiForce RX560 MammoDuo. The RX560 MammoDuo includes a unique dual stand that holds both monitors at once. Furthermore, the stand is designed so that the height, tilt, and swivel of the two monitors can be adjusted without creating any gaps between them. The RX560 features the world’s thinnest bezels for a 5 megapixel monitor, which when combined in the RX560 MammoDuo, creates a combined bezel width of only 15 mm. Additionally, the bezel sits only 2.5 mm above the screen, making it almost completely flush with the screen. All of this helps to reduce distractions when working between the two screens.

As the RX560 MammoDuo is two monitors held by a single stand, its size has been significantly reduced compared to conventional side-by-side configurations. It has been reduced by 67 mm horizontally, 36 mm vertically and 20.5 mm in depth. The total space occupied by the monitor has been reduced by 22%, creating an unrestricted environment with expanded viewing space.

The RX560 introduces a new function called Point-and-Focus to EIZO’s Work-and-Flow – a variety of monitor functions which help to improve usability for radiologists. Point-and-Focus allows the user to select specific areas of your screen and focus on them using a mouse and keyboard. This function changes the brightness and greyscale tones of the selected areas to make interpretation easier.

The RX560 also comes with the new Hybrid Gamma PXL function, which automatically distinguishes between monochrome and colour images pixel by pixel, creating a hybrid display where each pixel has optimised greyscale; improving accuracy and reliability compared to conventional area-detection methods.

Daisy Chaining or MST (multi-stream technology) is a method of connecting monitors together using a DisplayPort 1.2 input and output terminal. Rather than connecting each monitor to the graphics board of your computer, each monitor is connected to each other in a ‘daisy chain’ so that only one monitor needs to be connected to the computer.

There are many benefits of using a daisy chain in the reading room:

  • A reduced amount of cabling required to operate multiple monitors. This frees up space and reduces clutter.
  • Using short DisplayPort cables between monitors – as opposed to using multiple long cables – reduces the total length of wire, ultimately reducing the amount of PVC plastic required and thrown into landfills.
  • Monitor connection becomes quicker and easier for installers, especially if a computer is located in a confined area, as only one display cable needs to be connected to the PC.
  • Computer graphics boards only need to have a single DisplayPort output, rather than several, to be able to connect multiple monitors. This makes daisy chaining perfect for laptop and small-PC users, which often have limited outputs.
  • Cables can’t be accidentally pulled out like some other display cable types, as the DisplayPort cable has a clip that connects it to the terminal. This is important when viewing time sensitive information.
  • Excluding 5 megapixel monitors, daisy chaining doesn’t affect a monitor’s refresh rate – even on high performance monitors. This means that images will always be displayed as clearly as if they were directly connected to the PC.

daisy_chain.png

Daisy-Chain Requirements

DisplayPort 1.2 has a set bandwidth restriction, and can only support a limited amount of monitors depending on the resolution. The following graph shows the maximum number of same-resolution monitors that can be connected via a single DisplayPort 1.2 daisy chain, determined by resolution.

Display Resolution Maximum Number of Monitors
1200 x 1600 (2MP) 3
1536 x 2048 (3MP) 2
2048 x 2560 (5MP) 2
3280 x 2048 (6MP) 1
4096 x 2160 (8MP) 1

However, monitors of varying resolution can also be used together. For example in the above graph, although a maximum of two 1536 x 2048 monitors is listed, an additional 1920 x 1200 resolution monitor is also possible. There are numerous resolution combinations that can be connected. If using EIZO monitors, we recommend consulting our connection guide here.

Furthermore, although DisplayPort 1.2 may be able to support a certain amount of monitors, your computer may not. You can check the amount of monitors that your computer can support by viewing a computer’s GPU limitations.

Once you’re confident you know how many monitors your computer can safely support via DisplayPort 1.2, you will need monitors that are daisy chain compatible. Daisy chain compatible monitors contain at least one DisplayPort input and one output terminal.  The output terminal is what allows you to connect one monitor to the next. EIZO offers the following medically qualified monitors that are compatible with daisy chaining:

  • RadiForce GX550: A 5 megapixel, monochrome LCD monitor for breast imaging
  • RadiForce MX315W: An 8 megapixel, colour LCD monitor perfect for multi-modality use such as CT, MRI and ultrasound.
  • RadiForce RX660: A 6 megapixel, colour LCD monitor designed for viewing a variety of medical images such as CR, DR, CT, MRI and ultrasound.
  • RadiForce RX350: A 3 megapixel, colour LCD monitor for displaying both greyscale and colour images
  • RadiForce RX250: A 2 megapixel colour LCD monitor ideal for accurate display of both greyscale and colour images.

As it can be difficult to determine how many monitors can be supported in one chain, EIZO offers a connection guide to help you use the daisy chain feature effectively following the DisplayPort 1.2 bandwidth restrictions.

Collaboration with The RadFlowSpace Group

EIZO is collaborating with The US-based RadFlowSpace Group on its research into multi-monitor workstations. RadFlowSpace™ and the RadFlowSpace Method™ are the creations of Dr. John Mukai.  He is developing and vetting ideas that will bring relief to practicing radiologists who have become inundated with image data, case loads and time pressure resulting from today’s healthcare industry. The RadFlowSpace Group has transitioned its initial research – the RadFlowSpace Cockpit™ – and is simultaneously supporting its industrial partners to deliver better products, and radiologists to understand that they must adapt and embrace new ideas.

Dr. Mukai is using EIZO monitors in his work, and said the following about daisy chaining for radiology. “We have initiated work with EIZO Corporation to continue researching large, multi-monitor visual horizons for practicing radiologists. One of the challenges we face in our 8-monitor workstations is cable management. We believe that EIZO’s daisy chain capability will be an important factor in streamlining large multi-monitor deployments.”

EIZO would like to thank The RadFlowSpace Group for providing us with information on their RadFlowSpace Method™.


Benenden Hospital is an independent hospital based in the heart of Kent, UK.  A subsidiary of Benenden Healthcare Society it aims to provide first-class healthcare for private patients, Benenden members and NHS patients.

2017 sees a large redevelopment to the hospital which originally dates back to 1907.  Along with the modern refurbishment of the hospital, an update to the hospitals equipment will also be rolled out.  Already an existing customer of EIZO’s RadiForce diagnostic monitors, the team at Benenden Hospital are now purchasing from the FlexScan range – the everyday monitors from EIZO.

 

What was the need? 

In the past, the hospital had experienced both poor reliability and user experience with its existing general office application desktop monitors.  A recurring issue meant monitors would blow the capacitors and fail following the monthly generator test which resulted in the monitors needing to be replaced each time.  Coupled with rising costs, the team started to look at other manufacturers for a reliable, general office monitor solution.

The EIZO Solution

Having been introduced to the EIZO FlexScan range the team at Benenden have chosen the EIZO FlexScan EV2216 and EV2450 desktop monitors to be used across the hospital within the general offices, consulting rooms,theatres etc. Approximately 50 monitors have been installed to date, with a planned roll out of over 300 this coming year.

FlexScan monitors are the ideal choice for any office within a hospital.  With an industry leading 5-year warranty as standard they have slim attractive bezels, versatile stands and numerous connectors to fit onto any desk space.  They have been specifically designed to have leading energy saving features to help reduce running costs and are designed to make working at a PC more comfortable.  All of these features were attractive to the team at Benenden.

 

 Why EIZO? 

Dave Turner, IT Service Desk Team Leader, Benenden Hospital comments “The competitive price against our previous monitor along with the longer 5-year warranty was a definite advantage of the EIZO FlexScan and as a result they have reduced the initial purchasing costs for the trust.  The improved reliability and more robust design has also drastically reduced the number of faulty monitors on site.

“For the user, their experience is greatly improved which is appreciated by the staff.  They are noticeably brighter, clearer and wider than the previous well known manufacturer’s screens and are proving to be a stylish choice for our user.  They have also been 100% reliable during our monthly generator tests whereas our previous screens used to blow the capacitors.

The FlexScan monitors have fast became our monitor of choice for the hospital and everywhere they have been deployed the users are happy.”

EIZO Limited today announced the introduction of a new line of surgical monitors for displaying endoscopy and operating microscope feeds. The first two models are the CuratOR EX3220-3D and EX2620-3D – 31.5-inch and 26-inch full HD (1920 x 1080) surgical monitors implementing EIZO’s first 3D imaging technology.

 

In July 2016, EIZO acquired Panasonic Healthcare Co., Ltd.’s surgical and endoscopic monitor business. EIZO has developed its own advanced surgical monitors that combine the technologies of both companies in this new line of products.

 

3D technology has revolutionised work in the operating room, allowing surgical teams to view organs and tissue structures with a natural-looking 3D effect. With EIZO’s new innovative 3D technology, these monitors assist surgeons in today’s sophisticated medical procedures. The EX3220-3D and EX2620-3D faithfully reproduce 3D images with high definition, brightness and contrast. The EX3220-3D has a maximum brightness of 650 cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 1400:1, and the EX2620-3D has a maximum brightness of 580 cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 1400:1.

 

Due to the way monitors are built, many have an air gap between the LCD panel and outer layer of protective glass which creates reflections due to differences in refractive indices. However, the EX3220-3D and EX2620-3D offer EIZO’s own optical bonding which fills the gap with resin, reducing reflections and improving visibility and durability.

 

Additionally, the monitors are designed with safety and hygiene in mind. They feature rounded corners to prevent injury when moving monitors around the operating room, and they also feature a fully flat design which is dustproof and waterproof (Front: IP45; Whole Monitor: IP32). Furthermore, because they are fan-less, there are no ventilation holes, meaning that cleaning and disinfection can be done safely and efficiently without damaging the monitors. They can also contain cables neatly in the supplied cable cover for safe and hygienic use.

 

EIZO will continue to expand on this new line of surgical monitors with varying resolutions and sizes such as 4K3D, to respond to the diversifying needs of the healthcare industry.

EIZO Limited today announced the new ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 – a 31.1-inch reference monitor with DCI-4K resolution (4096 x 2160) for the professional HDR post production

ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145workflow.

HDR (high dynamic range) approximates the human perception of colour and light as content is shown on a display device. ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 is able to correctly show both very bright and very dark areas on the screen without sacrificing the integrity of either – a process which cannot be achieved with SDR (standard dynamic range) monitors. The monitor achieves the 1000 cd/m2 (typical) high brightness level needed for HDR content display as well as a typical contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 for displaying true blacks.

This professional colour-grading monitor is the first to overcome the severe drawbacks of other HDR technologies that are available in the market today – ABL and local dimming. ABL (Auto Brightness Limiter) is equipped in other HDR OLED monitors and limits the monitor’s ability to display lighter scenes with tones over a specific range in order to prolong the device’s lifetime. This causes those light areas to appear dimmer and the colour duller as a result. Local dimming uses an area control backlight system which adjusts the brightness in sections of the screen depending on the content displayed. However, when an object on the screen falls outside of the area of the backlight that is adjusted, a “halo” effect appears, making it impossible to achieve full colour accuracy in smaller details. ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 achieves a true HDR visual experience without ABL or the “halo” effect to ensure users always see accurate colours and brightness in every pixel.

There are two gamma curves used for HDR video creation – HLG (hybrid log-gamma)1 and PQ (perceptual quantization) curve. HLG is suitable for live television broadcasting and the PQ curve approximates the human visual system in terms of color and light perception, making it ideal for films, streaming, and other video content. ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 supports these gamma curves so professional creators can rely on a monitor compliant with industry standards for HDR video.

ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 supports various video formats including HDMI input compatible with 10-bit 4:2:2 at 50/60p. The DisplayPort input supports up to 10-bit 4:4:4 at 50/60p.

Additional Features

  • DCI-P3, Rec. 2020, EBU, and SMPTE-C, and Adobe RGB modes
  • Smooth gradations with 10-bit display from a 24-bit LUT (look-up-table)2
  • Optional light-shielding hood

HDR Gamma Support for Current ColorEdge Products

In addition to the new ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 HDR reference monitor, EIZO now offers optional HLG and PQ curves for many of its current CG Series monitors. The optimised gamma curves render images to appear more true to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR. This HDR gamma support is available as an option for ColorEdge CG318-4K, CG248-4K, CG277, and CG247X. Both gamma curves were standardised by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as ITU-R BT.2100. In addition, the PQ curve was standardised by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) as ST-2084.

With the new ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 monitor and HDR gamma support for a range of other monitors, EIZO now offers a wide selection of solutions to cover HDR video creation, VFX, compositing, colour grading, and more.

EIZO will be showing the ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 and its line of HDR gamma-supported monitors at the NAB Show 2017 in Las Vegas, USA from April 24 – 27. Visit Booth SL13916 to see the products in a specially designed booth.

Availability

The ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 will begin shipping in late 2017. Select ColorEdge CG Series monitors are now eligible for HLG and PQ curve gamma support.
