New 27" FlexScan LCD from Eizo!

To address the need for larger screen sizes, Eizo has recently announced a new 27" LCD monitor:

The FlexScan SX2762W, ideal for cost conscience color professionals.

The FlexScan SX2762W will appeal to many users for its competitive price point (guessing around $1200-$1500). Although it has many great features (see below), the SX2762W and other SX models will be the first non-CG series to have the ability to be monitor-hardware calibrated.

Monitor-hardware calibration allows the monitor itself to be internally calibrated rather than the computer’s video graphics board. This ensures no color tones are lost in the calibration process and results in more predictable on-screen color. Required for this will be the new EIZO EasyPIX Ver. 2 color matching tool. Easy PIX Ver. 2 includes software and the EIZO EX1 color sensor.

Features include:

  • Wide color gamut reproduces 97% of the Adobe RGB color space.
  • 10-bit display allows the monitor to show 1.07 billion colors simultaneously from a 16-bit look-up table (LUT), when used with a graphics board and software which support 10-bit output.
  • Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) compensates for fluctuations in brightness and chroma uniformity that are characteristic of LCD panels.
  • EIZO-patented technology stabilizes the brightness after start up or coming out of sleep mode.
  • Integrated sensor counteracts the influence that changes in ambient temperature have on the display of color tones.
  • DVI-D, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort inputs.
  • IPS (in-plane switching) LCD panel with 2560 × 1440 native resolution
  • 850:1, 6 ms gray-to-gray response time and 178° viewing angles.

....and more

And yes, CHROMiX will carry the SX2762W as well as all other CG and SX models at competitive prices.
