With EIZO’s Fine Contrast function you can choose from several preset modes for the various applications you work with. Toggling between modes can be done manually in the OSD menu or automatically by assigning a mode to a particular application with the bundled ScreenManager Pro for LCD software.
Fine Contrast includes an EyeCare mode that reduces the screen’s brightness to just 3 cd/m2. This ultra-low brightness helps prevent eye fatigue and increase productivity when working in an environment with very dim ambient lighting such as a CAD studio.
With office and home spending increasing amounts of time viewing documents and books on their monitors rather than in printed form, Paper mode simulates the look of paper. Paper mode makes reading documents and ebooks more comfortable and thereby reduces eyestrain.
What is Paper Mode?
Simply put, it is a mode which adjusts the brightness, contrast ratio, and color temperature of a monitor to simulate those of printed paper. Over the course of a work day PC users must constantly adjust to the difference between how monitors and paper appear. This overworks the muscles of the eyes and is thought to be a source of eye fatigue and stress. Paper mode was developed to alleviate the eye fatigue and stress that PC users feel.
Color Temperature, Brightness and the Effect on Blue Light
In the visible light spectrum, blue light has wavelengths adjacent to ultraviolet light. Compared to the factory preset setting of 6,500 K of typical LCD monitors, Paper Mode is closer to the spectral distribution with long reddish wavelengths so it reduces the amount of blue light, a cause of eye fatigue.
The combination of Paper Mode and the Auto EcoView brightness adjustment function reduces blue light even more. In a monitor with an LED backlight where Paper Mode and Auto EcoView were used, the blue light was measured and found to have only 1/6th the intensity of the factory setting.
The Auto EcoView function is a sensor on the front of the monitor that measures ambient light and optimizes the screen's brightness to a level akin to viewing a sheet of paper under typical office lighting conditions. Since the screen is never too bright, eye strain is reduced while power consumption is cut by up to 50% compared to operating the monitor with Auto EcoView turned off and set to the default factory brightness of 100%.
With both DVI-D and D-Sub mini 15-pin inputs, you can use a computer that has either a digital or an analog graphics board (or both if connected to two computers), and quickly switch between the inputs via a front panel button.
This technology helps achieve accurate color by converting the 8-bit PC data to 10-bit, and assigning the ideal gamma values with a 10-bit look-up table (LUT) then returning the data to 8-bit format for display.
0.5-watt speakers are tucked away at the back of the monitor and out of view so you can enjoy sound while bezel size is kept to a minimum. A headphone jack is also built into the monitor.
