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.
