Eizo wide-format LCDs
Eizo Nanao Technologies has introduced two wide-format LCD monitors--the 21-inch ColorEdge CE210W and the 24-inch ColorEdge CE240W. Both CE monitors feature increased horizontal viewing space with widescreen formats and feature an 8ms mid-tone response time, as well as an ergonomic design. The ColorEdge CE offers several features for color accuracy and control, including EIZO's own ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) offering 14-bit color processing for accurate grayscale rendering, and user-adjustable gamma ranging from 1.8 to 2.6. The monitors provide a 16-to-10 aspect ratio for 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1200 native resolutions, respectively. Each screen is wide enough to accommodate two A4 size pages at full size, as well as tool palettes placed on the perimeter of the screen with no resulting overlap. EIZO's ColorNavigator CE software comes bundled with ColorEdge CE models, and requires Mac OS X 12.2 or later. The ColorEdge CE240W and CE210W will begin shipping in the U.S. in mid-March with a five-year warranty (pricing was unavailable).
