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).

ScreenManager

Screen menu that can be used to manage a variety of monitor functions. Self-explanatory symbols make it very easy to adjust the monitor to your own needs.

ScreenManager Pro

ScreenManager Pro is a software to control EIZO monitors via the USB interface. For devices with a FineContrast function, the software allows you to automatically assign a FineContrast mode to different programmes. The software is a Windows application.

Self-calibration

Devices with an integrated calibration sensor are able to perform calibration without the help of the user. The computer does not even need to be switched on. When programmed once, the calibration will start at night, during the lunch break or at other, definable times. It is easy to programme using the ColorNavigator or the on-screen menu.

Smart Insight

Smart Insight determines the content of dark scenes and optimises them such that they are more visible and clearer.

sRGB (Standard RGB)

International standard for an RGB colour space. A colour space has been defined, which most devices can comply with, to enable colour matching between various applications and devices, such as monitors, scanners and digital cameras. sRGB images, which are detected or issued on "sRBG devices" are limited to the full sRBG colour range and no colours outside the sRBG colour space. Colour allocation, white point and gamma are permanently defined.

Swing sensor

An integrated calibration sensor governs the maximum colour accuracy. It positions itself automatically for calibration and then conceals itself in the safety of the casing until the next measurement is taken. Each monitor is exactly coordinated using its sensor. For example, the measurement location is correlated with the middle of the image at the upper edge of the image so that the sensor takes measurements as if it were in the middle of the image. This integrated solution rules out the variability, which may arise when using external measuring devices. Even the influences of ambient light are determined when initiating the sensor and considered during calibration.

TCO

TCO - what is that?

The Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) is a cost calculation that allows you to identify in advance all costs involved in an investment. It allows you to analyse not only the initial acquisition cost, but also to know the expenses for the planned IT infrastructure over a given period of time. Factors such as user behavior, maintenance requirements, damage cases, process costs, etc. must be taken into account.

USB hub

In connection with a USB-compatible computer, the monitor acts as a hub, to which other USB-compatible peripherals can be connected.

Viewing angle

The viewing angle relates to the angle, beneath which the contrast is better than 10:1. These are normally values of 160° to 178°. These values do not provide any information about what enormous differences in contrast may result within the viewing angle. The contrasts should not change significantly for users with a vertical view and a slightly side-on view. It must not make a difference whether the viewer is looking at the middle of the image or the edge of the image. How much the contrast stability varies with different LCD technologies is best checked using a measurement diagram or by a direct visual comparison. The more stable the contrast in the user's viewing frustum, the better the image rendering.
