Input lag is the delay on the screen when entering a command via a keyboard, mouse, or controller and can be the key to whether an objective is achieved or failed. The microprocessor developed by EIZO guarantees that commands are displayed on the screen with a maximum delay of just 0.05 frames. The benefits are clear: your chances increase considerably when gaming.
Life-like gaming thanks to the IPS panel
The other dimension of image quality: the IPS panel with LED backlight The IPS LCD module shines thanks to its lifelike colours and beautifully clear images. You can enjoy colour-proof gaming and can identify the gaming situation quickly and clearly even in complex scenes. Another highlight: the contrasts and colours remain stable from every viewing angle – regardless of whether you are looking at the middle or edges of the screen. This means that your team members can easily track what's happening in the game on adjacent screens. This grants you a valuable tactical edge.
Master games smarter
Smart Insight: impossible to hide
Smart Insight sharpens your view and spells an end to dark corners. How? Brightness and colour saturation are automatically increased in critical situations. To do so, the gamma curve is not simply adjusted, but the shadowy area is instead intelligently brightened up. 5 selectable default settings give you an ideal gaming environment for strategy or shooter games. This means that even well-hidden opponents will no longer be able to surprise you so easily.
Smart Resolution: razor sharp
The patented EIZO technology improves the sharpness of games and videos with low resolution. How? Image content is examined to identify blurring, movement artifacts, and colour tones and correct them automatically. You will always see an extremely realistic and lifelike image. You can choose to activate the Text Enhancer and Skin Tone Enhancer functions. You can select from five default settings in total.
Fine tuning made simple
Always the best colour settings, no matter if you are playing dark or bright games, videos, photos, or surfing, the G-Ignition software included makes it easy for you. Each application and gaming appearance can be allocated a mode. Also practical: All monitor settings can be controlled via G-Ignition.
Professional colour profiles
Do you want to game with the colour profiles of professional gamers? Nothing more simple than that. At gaming.eizo.com you can download the settings used by CS:GO gamers like Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg. Simply download EIZO's own G-Ignition software (successor of ScreenManager Pro for gaming) and export it into your own settings.
Fast, faster, overdrive. The overdrive function accelerates the switching of pixels so that colour tone changes take just 4.9 ms on average. You can play with a brilliant display quality that conventional TN LCDs cannot come close to matching, without streaking and without a time delay.
Free from glare in any environment: Auto EcoView
Regardless of where and when you are playing, Auto EcoView adjusts the monitor brightness to the light conditions of its environment. fully automatically by using a sensor. This offers you a few benefits: On the one hand, annoying glare is prevented when bright light hits the screen, as the monitor brightness is automatically increased, meaning that dark details remain visible. On the other hand, the screen brightness is reduced when it gets darker during the course of the day or during a tournament, meaning your eyes do not tire as quickly during long matches and you can identify gaming situations more quickly and can play with greater concentration through to the final. Of course, you can still configure your monitor manually and you are free to choose the maximum and minimum image brightness.
Connections for all consoles and computers
Regardless of what games console, PC, or multimedia application you want to connect, the monitor has the right interface for you.
Designed to protect your back and eyes and ensure gaming fun
Gaming fun for hours: the height of the base can be adjusted by 60 mm, and it can be rotated 344° and tilted 25°. Back and neck tension are a thing of the past. As are tired eyes. The monitor delivers consistently flicker-free images regardless of the brightness settings, helping to protect your eyes. The anti-reflection coating on the display, which reduces annoying light reflection, and the slim side frame of just 6 mm ensure increased gaming fun. Gamers and clans who operate on multiple monitors will enjoy an almost seamless display service – for a breathtaking gaming experience. Also practical: Thanks to the integrated handle on the back, you can easily bring the monitor to tournaments.
On the safe side with EIZO's 5-year warranty with on-site replacement service. You can therefore enjoy a considerably longer warranty than conventional gaming monitors, which normally only have a two-year warranty. Compliance with important standards like Energy Star and TÜV Ergonomics also provides for optimal gaming conditions.
Where saving energy counts, the EcoView Sense function really comes into its own. It automatically turns the screen on or off, depending on whether the user is sitting/standing in front of the screen at that time. EcoView Sense will notice that the user has returned even before the mouse is moved or the keyboard is touched. The screen is therefore always ready for use immediately and does not waste any energy when the user is not in front of it.
Smart Resolution is a technology patented by EIZO, which checks the screen content for noise and blurring. Smart Resolution ensures that noise is not amplified and sharpens the image by correcting blurring. For a game, for example, Smart Resolution can resharpen the image to make it seem more life-like. For other content, such as photos and websites, Smart Resolution differentiates between skin tones and improves how they look.
Pixels are precalculated using this function and purposefully accelerated by intelligent steering. In this way not only the black-white changes, but even changes of colour nuances are shown very rapidly. Image changes in fast video sequences, 3D CAD animations and games therefore do not suffer from unwanted ghosting effects.
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.
