IPS panels provide high contrasts and very stable colour tone rendering in the case of changing viewing angles. They are strong when it comes to still and moving images due to their high colour stability.


Backlights with white LEDs have the same brightness as CCFL backlights yet consume half as much energy. That means extremely high energy efficiency and rapidly falling electricity costs. An added benefit: In contrast to fluorescent tubes, LEDs do not contain any toxic mercury, which is harmful to the environment.

Look-up table (LUT)

This is where the signal values are allocated to the colour tone values for the output in the monitor. EIZO monitors are 16, 14, 12 or 10 bit instead of the conventional 8 bit look-up table (LUT) for precise colour control. Precision work, performed by a high-performance chip developed in-house at EIZO.

Normal (1:1) resolution

Displays the image in the resolution of the image signal. If the physical resolution of the display is greater, pixels around the image remain unused.

Off timer

The off-timer causes the monitor to automatically switch to energy-saving mode after a predefined period of time. That saves resources for energy. It is turned off regardless of screen savers or the computer's settings.

Outline enhancement

Dynamic contrast and outline enhancement brings more contrast into the image during colour tone reproduction, while simultaneously optimising sharpness. This means that dark scenes are shown in the highest level of detail. This makes images look more vivid and films look more life-like.


Pixels are precalculated using this function and purposefully accelerated by intelligent steering. This way not only the black-white changes, but even changes of colour nuances are shown very rapidly. Image changes in fast video sequences, 3D CAD animations and games therefore do not suffer from unwanted ghosting effects.

RadiCS application classes

In accordance with DIN 6868-157, different minimum requirements are placed on image display devices depending on the body region / method. The EIZO RadiCS quality assurance software is divided into classes I to XIII. The following table shows a classification of the classes and minimum requirements in this regard.


Note: An acceptance test is necessary for each image display system for an evaluation in accordance with DIN 6868-157.

The LCD display is comprised of a fixed number of image elements (pixels), which light up to display the contents of the screen. The image is comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels. LCDs achieve the best image quality if all pixels can be allocated data, i.e. if the resolution configured on the computer corresponds to that of the LCD display.

Rise/fall switching time

The time in milliseconds required to change the colour of a pixel from black to white (rise) and white to black (fall).
