Example of a display on the FDF2304W-IP
Connecting to surveillance cameras without a computer

The monitor is ideal for displaying your surveillance cameras efficiently. Up to 16 IP cameras can be connected directly to the monitor by means of a LAN cable. This means that the monitor can be operated without a PC. It can also be mounted on walls or ceilings thanks to a VESA attachment. Not only does this negate the need for having to install a computer, but it also simplifies the cable routing. Only a power supply and a network connection are needed. (The adjacent image shows an example involving the FDF2304W-IP)

High Performance Decoding Technology

The monitor comes equipped with decoding technology to ensure that images are displayed with no delay and are true to the original source data. This eliminates the need for an additional decoder.

Data protection and viewing of camera images

Sometimes live video is required, but storage of images is not allowed. But how can one ensure that no images are recorded? The EIZO IP decoding monitors allow only for the live display of videos. Operators have no way of accessing or exporting video streams. Possible scenarios involve hospitals, prisons, public spaces, checkout counters, front desks and applications for the protection of people.

Edge recording and live video

Where a decentralized recording solution is used (such as edge recording with cloud archiving) live displaying is a challenge. Either software is needed, or streams need to be fetched from the cloud, generating additional traffic on your internet connection (2). With the EIZO IP monitor, it is possible to directly view live video from the cameras (1), completely separated from your recording solution.

Edge Recording
EIZO IP decoding monitors display the videos directly and live. This saves bandwidth and is easy to integrate, thereby decreasing costs.

VMS-independent fallback solution

VMS forms the basis for reliable video playback in modern VSS solutions. Even though the platform is protected from foreseeable events thanks to server redundancy, the VMS solution – establishing a connection to the operators via a client – should be seen as a critical point. If this system comes under attack or is disabled, the IP decoding monitor, which is independent of the VMS, can provide a redundant solution. To achieve this, it is simply connected directly to the surveillance cameras, the network connection of which is still operational.

Genetec Security Centre plug-in

EIZO and Genetec collaborated to design a plugin that fulfils many sought-after end user requirements for security systems across the world. By integrating the Genetec™ Security Centre video wall framework, users can easily setup and manage EIZO’s DuraVision IP decoding monitors remotely. Using the Security Centre interface, operators can simply drag and drop the video feed from registered cameras to the desired position and the settings will be automatically reflected on the target monitor. The number and layout of the video feeds can also be easily configured on the same screen. DuraVision IP decoding solutions can also respond to dynamic instructions from Security Centre when specific events occur, such as expanding the screen in response to unauthorised access.

Genetec Plugin
The camera position and video layout of IP decoding solutions can be managed via the Genetec Security Centre.
Customisable event response with Alert-to-Action

The FDF4627W-IP can be integrated into security systems via a web API. The API is used to communicate and respond to alarms in the security network. An alarm from an IP camera or a VMS (video management system) to the IP decoding solution can trigger actions, such as changes to the layout, text overlays or a variety of other functionalities. The API allows you to flexibly connect a series of notification systems from IP cameras, VMS, access control systems and other devices and applications that support alarm functionalities.

EIZO works closely with security system providers and end-users to customise Alert-to-Action for each environment.

EIZO IP decoder solutions allow Alert-to-Action to be customised for individual environments.

Visibility Optimizer for clear images

Equipped with the Visibility Optimizer, the user achieves clear images thanks to the image enhancement technologies Low-Light Correction and Outline Enhancer. The benefit: The image enhancement takes place in the monitor and surveillance cameras can be accessed easily.

Low-Light Correction: Improved display of dark areas

Low-Light Correction automatically identifies dark and unclear areas of the image and optimises them. Dark areas are brightened up to achieve a more realistic depth effect. The visibility of surveillance cameras in difficult lighting conditions is increased. Persons or objects can therefore no longer merge into the shadows.

Practical too: the day/night default settings. You can choose between the "Day" and "Night" default mode settings using the remote control. These are optimised to the respectively changing light conditions.

Sharper images with Outline Enhancer

The Outline Enhancer technology developed by EIZO analyzes the content display and automatically corrects blurry areas. The image is sharper, with less noise. Objects in the foreground are given a stronger focus for realistic depth sharpness.

Optimise Settings for Cameras

Individually optimise Low-Light Correction and Outline Enhancer settings for up to 4 connected cameras in any layout. This is helpful when multiple cameras are used in environments with differing ambient lighting conditions.

Precise image rendering thanks to 10 bit conversion

The monitor converts 8 bit signals into 10 bit and selects the optimal colour values from a 10 bit look-up table (LUT). The effect: You will experience a colour-proof image with a fine resolution. The optimised data is then converted into an 8-bit output signal. This leads to fluid colour tone gradations. This is helpful in identifying dif cult to distinguish people and objects.

High contrast and colour accuracy from all angles of view.

The VA panel with wide viewing angle ensures that the contrast hardly falls when viewing the screen from any angle and there are only minimal differences in colour. This means that exact colour rendering and clear images can be achieved even in the corners of the screen. 

Full HD screen with anti-glare coating

The monitor has a Full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels that fills the entire screen. The monitor therefore has space to conveniently display even large quantities of information. Images from Full HD cameras are rendered true down to the slightest detail, without annoying black bars. Reflected light is scattered thanks to its anti-reflection coating. The benefit: Your eyes do not get tired as quickly.

How do I clean the surface of my EIZO LCD monitor?

To keep your monitor looking like new at all times and to prolong the service life of your device, we recommend cleaning it regularly. Clean the casing and LCD surface as described below:

IMPORTANT: Never use thinner, benzene, alcohol (ethanol, methanol or isopropyl alcohol), scouring agents or other strong solvents as these may damage the casing and the LCD display.

Remove marks by wiping the casing with a soft cloth, which you have previously moistened with a mild cleaning agent. Never spray wax or cleaning agents directly on to the casing. (The manual contains exact details.)

LCD display
Where necessary, the monitor surface may be cleaned using a soft cloth (for example a cotton cloth or glasses cloth). Stubborn marks can generally be removed by wetting the cloth with a bit of water to increase the cleaning strength.

Which graphics cards does EIZO recommend?

We cannot make a direct recommendation. The output signal should be digital and should support the maximum resolution of the monitor.

What does "viewing angle" mean?

The viewing angle relates to the angle, beneath which the contrast is better than 10:1. These are normally values of 160° to 178°. These values do not provide any information about what enormous differences in contrast may result within the viewing angle. The contrasts should not change significantly for users with a perpendicular view and a slightly side-on view. It must not make a difference whether the viewer is looking at the middle of the image or the edge of the image. How much the contrast stability varies with different LCD technologies is best checked using a measurement diagram or by a direct visual comparison. The more stable the contrast in the user's viewing frustum, the better the image rendering.

What does "contrast" mean?

Contrast is the ratio of white to black and for monitors is normally stated as a dark room contrast from a controlled laboratory environment. Typical contrasts on printed paper are 6:1 for newspapers, 31:1 for laser printers, 49:1 for photo paper. For example, dark room contrasts cannot be achieved in the office because an extremely deep black cannot be achieved in normal ambient light – even with the screen turned off.
