Eizo Nanao New EcoView Monitors
Earth day may have been last week, but that didn’t stop Eizo Nanao from making monitors with an EcoView Sense feature. This feature allows the monitor to enter into sleep mode if no one moves in front of it for 40 seconds.
How is this possible? These new Eizo Nanao monitors come equipped with motion detectors that can somehow sense a moving form before the screen at maximum length of 120 centimeters.
So when you go to step out for a snack, you will come back to find your PC sleeping on the job. You may wish to disable this feature.
These new Eizo Nanao monitors come in two forms. The first is the 20-inch EV2023W with a 1600 x 900 resolution, 178 degree viewing angles, and a 3000:1 contrast ratio. The other is the 23-inch EV2303W, with a TN panel of 1920 x 1080 resolution, 160 degree viewing angles, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio.
Both of these monitors have a brightness of 250 cd/m2, along with a VGA and DVI-D input. Another eco-friendly feature is the monitors have an ambient light sensor that is designed to adjust the brightness according to the light of the room.
I don’t have a release date or a price on these eco-friendly monitors, but we will probably be seeing them quite soon.
