Eizo S2232W and S2242W
Eizo this morning sought to fill a gap in displays with two 22-inch displays that overcome normal color limits. Both the 1680x1050 FlexScan S2232W-E and the 1920x1200 S2242W-H have new, wide color gamut panels that cover 95 percent of the Adobe RGB color space and 92 percent of the NTSC space, suiting them to editing still and moving images versus the low-color panels that often define 22-inch displays. They also have high static contrast ratios of 1,200:1 and are quick with true black-to-white pixel response times of 12ms (gray-to-gray 6ms).
The Japanese company also bills either display as eco-friendly with an auto-adjusting backlight and a specific low-power mode. For input, users have the pick of either VGA or HDCP-capable DVI for video, a two-port USB hub, and a 1W stereo speaker system for basic sound. Viewers can also pivot either display 90 degrees for a portrait view.
Both FlexScans ship to Eizo's home country on February 5th. The lower-resolution S2232W-E should sell for the equivalent of $705, while the S2242W-H will cost $784. Eizo regularly exports its displays, though no US launch has been mentioned. [via Impress]
