Automatic brightness adjustment – Auto EcoView
There’s more to our monitors than meets the eye.
As the lighting conditions around a monitor change throughout the day, we have developed, among other things, the unique Auto EcoView function. With this function, the screen brightness of the monitor adapts perfectly to the lighting conditions.
The advantage: optimum brightness, even in changing light conditions, improves readability. This is easy on the eyes and also helps to save up to 50 % energy - fully automatically.

Automatic colour mode
Always the best setting for you.
Automatic colour mode allows you to assign a specific display mode to individual applications. As soon as you open an application, the screen switches automatically to the predefined mode. Whether you are surfing the Web, looking at graphics in Office or using a word processor, automatic colour mode will ensure that you are always using the best setting for the task.
When you work with Word files, for example, the monitor switches directly to Paper mode. This simulates the pleasant contrast of printed paper, thus protecting the eyes while reading and preventing fatigue. In addition, the paper mode reduces the amount of blue light.
The automatic colour mode is made possible by the EIZO Screen InStyle software for Windows via a USB connection between the monitor and the computer.

Flicker-free – even in the dark.
There are a variety of reasons why your eyes may feel under strain. When regulating brightness levels, many LED backlighting systems flash at frequencies that are perceived as flicker by sensitive users, which in turn leads to eye fatigue. Since monitors that produce flicker are not suitable for professional use, EIZO has developed a special hybrid technology that combines two brightness control options – PWM (pulse width modulation) and DC (direct current) dimming.
The hybrid brightness control developed by EIZO produces flicker-free images and a reduction in eye fatigue in all conditions.
This is beneficial as it alleviates strain on the user’s eyes. You can work at your screen for longer periods and without losing your concentration, even in the dark. You can set the display brightness level to less than 1 per cent of the maximum value in dimly lit rooms, which also means that your screen will remain glare-free, even in these conditions.
At workstations with multi-monitor setups, the image is often disrupted by wide frames that are distracting to users. This is why the bezels on our monitors are so narrow you will hardly notice them. In addition to improving readability, this also reduces the number of movements your eyes and head have to make.
Make yourself comfortable.
Most people suffer from back pain at least once in their lives. Professionals are particularly affected by this issue, as one of the main causes of back pain is poor posture while working.
EIZO has found a solution to this problem. Our monitors are unique in their flexibility and can therefore be adjusted individually to each user. This means that each screen can be adapted to meet your personal requirements.
The height, tilt and swivel of all EIZO screens can be flexibly adjusted. In concrete terms, this means that our screens offer continuous height adjustment. Depending on the model, they can even be lowered to the base plate of the stand. This guarantees the best possible ergonomics, regardless of whether the user is sitting or standing in front of the screen. You can also swivel, rotate and tilt the monitor base to the position that is most comfortable for your posture.
This means that you won’t have to put your head and body in an uncomfortable position just to view your screen. Instead, you will be able to focus on more important things.

Viewing angle stability
The perfect view from every angle.
The viewing angle determines the colour intensity, sharpness and contrast. This is why poor viewing angle stability can greatly limit your view and significantly distort colours.
Our office monitors achieve excellent viewing angle stability with the aid of innovative panel technologies. Colours and contrasts look the same in the corners as they do in the centre of the screen and your display content is always razor-sharp from every angle.
Maintain your focus.
Nothing is more distracting than dazzling reflections on your screen surface. That’s why all our monitors feature anti-glare coating. This doesn’t just protect your eyes from excessive strain, but also saves you from having to adopt uncomfortable positions while sitting in front of your monitor – positions that put a strain on your neck and muscles. This means that with EIZO, you can always work comfortably, regardless of the ambient lighting conditions.
Software for ergonomics and more.
It is not only on the monitor itself that you can make settings for optimal workplace ergonomics. This is also possible with the free EIZO software Screen InStyle for Windows. In addition to the ergonomics features, it offers other useful functions. Especially practical: Let the software work for you and synchronise configurations across all connected monitors.
