Eizo to debut $35,000 LCD Monitor and it doesn’t have multiple screens!
We have earlier seen some of the bigger, better and expensive multi-screens including the Dz-Flex multi-screen monitor to engage gaming buffs at their desk, the CineMassive Trio Gemini 27D multi-monitor that looks more like a grid and the 9X Media multipanel LCD displays to expand your vision and to spread your horizon as much as you think. And, we understand why these multi-screens come at a hefty price. But, here we have a special case; a 4,096 x 2,160 LCD monitor from Eizo that will cost a whopping $35,000. The manufacturer Eizo, known for creating the world’s best visual display products for the discerning users will showcase this 4K display at the NAB 2012 from 14 to 19 April.
Let’s see what do you get for $35K price?
As described by the manufacturer, the monitor FDH3601 is built to deliver 100% sRGB coverage, that too in color gamut as well as a ‘perfect smooth tone reproduction across the screen.’
It renders 4,096 x 2,160 pixels on a surface of 36.4 inches that delivers 10-bit colors. Also, there is a16-bit look-up table that supports up to 278 trillion colors. Apparently, in an area of just 36.4 inches, the monitor squeezes the resolution of four 1080p displays.
The monitor delivers the maximum brightness of 700 cd/m2 with the contrast ratio of 1,000:1 along with the quick response time of just 8 ms.
A monitor with this kind of technical prowess is definitely going to attract the professionals with discerning needs. Though, Eizo haven’t yet disclosed the price for the United States customers, but it is expected that the price will not be significantly cheaper than it is in Japan, for 2.88 million yen, or about $34,600.
