What does the USB hub do?

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

What does "overdrive" mean?

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

How do I clean the surface of my EIZO LCD monitor?

To keep your monitor looking like new at all times and to prolong the service life of your device, we recommend cleaning it regularly. Clean the casing and LCD surface as described below:

IMPORTANT: Never use thinner, benzene, alcohol (ethanol, methanol or isopropyl alcohol), scouring agents or other strong solvents as these may damage the casing and the LCD display.

Casing
Remove marks by wiping the casing with a soft cloth, which you have previously moistened with a mild cleaning agent. Never spray wax or cleaning agents directly on to the casing. (The manual contains exact details.)

LCD display
Where necessary, the monitor surface may be cleaned using a soft cloth (for example a cotton cloth or glasses cloth). Stubborn marks can generally be removed by wetting the cloth with a bit of water to increase the cleaning strength.

Can I operate and charge a late-2016 MacBook Pro via the USB-C interface?

The MacBook Pro 13” requires 9V/3A as a power supply and for charging. The USB-C port of the EV2780 is suitable for this purpose.
Please note our firmware update for the EIZO FlexScan EV2780 model in this case.

What does DisplayPort mean?

This is a digital signal interface for images and sound signals for computer monitors with a high transmission bandwidth and a compact plug design.

I am not getting the full 2560x1440 pixel resolution through the DVI interface – what can I do?

At resolutions greater than 1920 x 1200, you need a DualLink signal and cable, as the bandwidth is higher than 165 MHz.

At 2560x1440 pixels on the DVI interface, the image flickers – what can I do?

At resolutions greater than 1920 x 1200, you need a DualLink signal and cable, as the bandwidth is higher than 165 MHz.

What is the benefit of a 16 bit look-up table?

When it comes to color accuracy when working, how well a monitor can differentiate between color tones is of fundamental importance. To achieve the maximum color depth and prevent the formation of stripes, banding, and washing, EIZO relies on the ultimate perfection: a 16 bit look-up table (LUT) ensures precise color resolution, meaning that even the finest structures in darker areas of the image are reproduced so that they are absolutely accurate in every detail.

What does gamma mean?

The color tone rendering is relative to the change of the input signal level. This relationship is generally known as the gamma characteristic. In image reproduction, low gamma values result in white images and high gamma values result in high-contrast images.

When do I need a colorimeter and when do I need a spectrophotometer?

Spectrophotometers and colorimeters are able to measure light colors. They can be used equally well when combined with the EIZO ColorNavigator monitor calibration software. Spectrophotometers can also measure body colors. Further software from the measurement device manufacturer is necessary, however, to calibrate scanners, printers, and other output devices.
