'World’s first' fully-flat bezel-less monitor
EIZO has announced the release of the FlexScan EV2750, a 27" IPS monitor with an LCD screen that is flush with the minimalist frame that surrounds it for a fully flat surface. The FlexScan EV2750 features picture-by-picture capability and numerous ergonomic and energy-saving features that make it suitable for business environments such as trading rooms, control rooms and back offices.
The cabinet is essentially bezel-less on the sides and top with a frame that is just 1mm in width. The LCD panel’s perimeter has black borders of 5.5mm. The depth of the cabinet is a mere 48.5mm. This minimalist design combined with a fully-flat surface makes for a seamless visual experience. Furthermore, the cabinet is available in white to blend in with modern desktop and office environments.
The 27" screen uses an LED-backlit IPS LCD panel with a native resolution of 2560x1440. Its 178° viewing angle minimises colour shift. The typical brightness is 350cd/m2 and the contrast ratio is 1000:1.
The FlexScan EV2750 has an ergonomic stand with 155mm height adjustment, 40° tilt (5° down, 35° up), and 344° swivel. It pivots 90° clockwise and counter-clockwise to take advantage of the ultra-slim bezels when using two or more monitors side-by-side in portrait mode. A quick-release button allows for easy removal of the monitor from the stand for reconfiguration on a VESA-compatible mounting device.
One DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D input terminals are included for connection to various graphics boards. With picture-by-picture, content from two inputs can be displayed at once.
The brightness dimming methods of conventional LED-backlit monitors causes many people to see flicker which results in eye fatigue. EIZO uses a hybrid dimming technology that makes flicker unperceivable even at low brightness levels. Furthermore, in dimly-lit work environments, brightness is adjustable to 1cd/m2 which is less than 1% of the maximum.
EIZO’s incorporates its own EcoView technologies to reduce typical power consumption to 22W. Auto EcoView automatically adjusts the screen’s brightness in accordance with the ambient brightness to trim power usage while reducing eye fatigue. EIZO has upgraded Auto EcoView so that it takes into account the human eye’s sensitivity to changes in low brightness levels up to 100cd/m2 and renders these changes less noticeable for more comfortable viewing.
EcoView Optimiser 2 saves power by reducing the backlight brightness and increasing the gain on screens consisting mostly of dark content. EIZO backs the FlexScan EV2750 with its industry-leading five-year warranty to reduce total cost of ownership and ensure a long service life. The monitor is also guaranteed against bright pixels for six months from the purchase date.
EIZO-developed software called ScreenManager Pro lets users adjust colour and EcoView settings with the mouse and keyboard instead of the on-screen display menu. It also works with EIZO’s EcoView NET power management software which lets network administrators control the brightness and power settings of all compliant monitors.
Five preset modes are included sRGB, Movie, Paper and two modes with user-adjustable settings. Paper mode reduces the amount of blue light to help prevent eye fatigue.
