Eizo has launched the DuraVision FDH3601a, a 36-inch, 4096x2160 monitor. The 4K resolution is four times that of a standard 1080p TV and intended for pros that need very large editing areas. The monitor also features a sensor that automatically detects when the user is present or away and powers on and off accordingly.
Japan-based Eizo has introduced a new professional-grade 30-inch display, the ColorEdge CG303W. It sports a 2560x1600 resolution and a 178-degree vertical and horizontal viewing angle. As the monitor is meant for professional use, it covers 98 percent of the Adobe RGB color gamut. Its gamma adjustments are set by individual workers at the factory before the monitor is shipped out, and end-users can calibrate it themselves thanks to the included ColorNavigator software.
Eizo has recently revealed the upcoming release of its FlexScan EV2333W-H LCD monitor, equipped with a 23-inch, 1080p (1920x1080) LCD display. The screen is one of its few to include both DisplayPort and HDCP-protected DVI along with a VGA connection for video inputs, letting it plug into more modern computers. It also has a relatively vivid picture for a high-color LCD with a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, 300cd/m2 brightness and a 7ms pixel response time.
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).
Japan's Eizo recently introduced the ColorEdge CG242W LCD monitor that offers a 24.1-inch display and offers 1920x1200 resolution. The monitor's colors cover 97 percent of the Adobe RGB spectrum, and is meant to be used with video editing applications that include 3D-look-up table (3D LUT) support. New MacBook Pros use a mini Display Port connection and nothing else, so once an adapter is released, users will be able to add EIZO's LCD as a secondary, external display to the notebooks. Apart from the DisplayPort, there is a DVI connection, and both are HDCP compatible.
Japanese company Eizo on Wednesday introduced a new 24-inch LCD monitor, the FlexScan S2432W-H, which is one of its first to rely on the newer DisplayPort video standard. sports both a 1920x1200 resolution and a contrast ratio of 1,000:1. Other specs include a brightness rating of 360cd/m2 and a true black-to-white pixel response time of 16ms, while the neutral (gray-to-gray) response time is 6ms.
Eizo is hoping to set a new benchmark for artists, video editors and other color-conscious computer users with the launch of the ColorEdge CG301W. Quietly introduced at the PMA photo expo but made public today, the 30-inch LCD is designed to be as faithful as possible to the color ranges that appear in most video: courtesy of 12-bit color lookup and 16-bit color processing, the display captures 100 percent of the NTSC gamut and 97 percent of Adobe's RGB color space, ensuring that few if any colors will be mishandled even in photo editing. Color calibration is also handled in hardware that guarantees the final palette will not have been affected by a computer's video card output, Eizo notes.

Cirrus creates Lightning-headphone dev kit
Apple supplier Cirrus Logic has introduced a MFi-compliant new development kit for companies interested in using Cirrus' chips to create Lightning-based headphones, which -- regardless of whether rumors about Apple dropping the analog headphone jack in its iPhone this fall -- can offer advantages to music-loving iOS device users. The kit mentions some of the advantages of an all-digital headset or headphone connector, including higher-bitrate support, a more customizable experience, and support for power and data transfer into headphone hardware. Several companies already make Lightning headphones, and Apple has supported the concept since June 2014. http://bit.ly/29giiZj

Apple employees testing wheelchair features
New features included in the forthcoming watchOS 3 are being tested by Apple retail store employees, including a new activity-tracking feature that has been designed with wheelchair users in mind. The move is slightly unusual in that, while retail employees have previously been used to test pre-release versions of OS X and iOS, this marks the first time they've been included in the otherwise developer-only watchOS betas. The company is said to have gone to great lengths to modify the activity tracker for wheelchair users, including changing the "time to stand" notification to "time to roll" and including two wheelchair-centric workout apps. http://bit.ly/2955JDa
