Raptor SQ2826

1. Light as a Feather

The Raptor SQ2826 is the world’s first 2K x 2K primary control monitor whose light weight of just 9.2 kg and compact design ensure it complies with 100 x 100 mm VESA mounting standards. This means that it can be reliably mounted to VESA supported arms and fixtures without needing an adapter or additional brackets, alleviating installation requirements.

2. Through Thick and Thin

EIZO has been an industry leader in the innovation and development of quality 2K x 2K primary control monitors for ATC for over 15 years. The Raptor SQ2826 is a 6th generation monitor that features the sleekest design in the lineup. With bezels that are a mere 15.5 mm and the overall compact design, the monitor fits comfortably into any installation.

3. Make the Switch to a Smarter Monitor

At-the-Glass Image Capture Built In

The Raptor SQ2826 is industry’s first primary control monitor to feature truly built-in image capture at the glass. Using the monitor’s video signal output, all displayed image content, including the monitor’s OSD menu operations, is accurately streamed to a second 2K x 2K signal compatible monitor via DVI.


The monitor can output the signal through EIZO’s Re/Vue encoding & streaming device and SafeGuard data capture & content management solution to enable remote live viewing or to record to the server for a fully integrated ATC Visual System.


Last Frame Display

In mission-critical ATC where every second counts, air traffic control officers (ATCO) need to be aware if there is any disruption to the image on screen. EIZO’s unique Last Frame Display function detects if the video signal is disrupted and automatically displays the last available frame captured from the visual system accompanied by a text overlay to inform the ATCO of the status. This ensures the ATCO is immediately made aware of the disruption so appropriate action can be taken, such as following emergency protocols or accessing a backup system, while providing the last available visual information to refer to until the issue is addressed.

Integrated Switching

The monitor offers EIZO’s SwitchLink internal switching management technology as an option. SwitchLink enables seamless switching of keyboard and mouse without the need for an external KVM switch. Up to six video workstations can be connected to the monitor and operated by a single keyboard and mouse.

SwitchLink connected to up to 6 video sources with 5 additional auxiliary monitors.

Integrated switching

SwitchLink Mouse

Simply moving the mouse cursor across each window will instantaneously and automatically switch workstation inputs. The response time when switching mouse input to another workstation is approximately 0 ms for completely smooth operation.


SwitchLink Keyboard

To toggle between workstations, EIZO also implements keyboard hotkey switching with SwitchLink. By activating a predefined hotkey, USB control of the keyboard and mouse will switch to another workstation.


4. Streamline Installation and Maintenance

With SwitchLink, video sources connect to the monitor directly, eliminating the need for a KVM switch.

Reduce Cabling and Cable Management

SwitchLink is built directly into the monitor, eliminating the need for the KVM switch and additional cables for a streamlined installation.

Reduce Power Consumption and Connection Requirements

Since SwitchLink is built into the monitor, it does not require any additional power connections, reducing power requirements of the system.

Avoid Compatibility Issues

SwitchLink removes some of the risk for compatibility or driver issues caused by traditional KVM switches. The monitor and built-in switching component are developed by the same engineering team at EIZO to ensure smooth handshaking between internal components and optimum performance throughout the lifetime of the monitor.

Custom Naming of Video Signal Inputs

Administrators can remotely control the monitor’s OSD settings from an intuitive web UI. Settings include monitor brightness, contrast, saturation, video signals, window layout management, and more. This allows running adjustments to be made to the monitor without intruding on the installation area or needing to access inside a closed console. The web UI uses a login and password to maintain secure access.

5. Monitor Control Over the Network

Administrators can remotely control the monitor’s OSD settings from an intuitive web UI. Settings include monitor brightness, contrast, saturation, video signals, window layout management, and more. This allows running adjustments to be made to the monitor without intruding on the installation area or needing to access inside a closed console. The web UI uses a login and password to maintain secure access.

6. LED Direct Backlight System

Brightness Uniformity

The Raptor SQ2826 is equipped with a direct backlight system, which offers superior brightness uniformity compared to edge-type solutions. This ensures consistency in the way images are displayed and allows the LED cells to operate with higher efficiency over the long lifetime of the monitor.

Brightness Stabilization

EIZO’s fully automated stability function uses an internal backlight sensor to stabilize the brightness level throughout the life of the monitor, compensating for fluctuations caused by variations in ambient temperature and the passage of time.

Wide Brightness Range

The monitor can be adjusted within a wide brightness range of 2 to 500 cd/m2 to suit the requirements of the installation environment as well as the needs of the ATCO.

Energy Efficiency

With more individual LEDs powering the backlight, the SQ2826 requires less power than edge-type solutions, even at maximum brightness. This also means the heat generated by the monitor is reduced, which in turn helps contribute to longer lasting internal components over the course of the monitor’s life.

7. Mechanical Design

Flexible Mounting Variations

The Raptor SQ2826 is available in VESA, chassis, and panel mount versions, as well as with a desktop stand, for flexible installation into any environment. The rear side is configured without needing to remove any part of the housing for easily adapting to new installations or upgrades.

Complete Connection

The monitor is equipped with a multitude of signal interfaces. Connectors are placed on the sides of the monitor for easy access and cable management.


8. Durability and Reliability

24/7 Operation

The Raptor SQ2826 is developed specifically for meeting the stringent requirements of mission-critical ATC environments with 24/7 operation.
