I went to a fabulous new show by Louise Stebbing, print maker extraordinaire. Lino prints, etchings, drypoints, colour and monochrome and a great series on the Day of the Dead. On until 11 august, put it into your diary and have a drink in the bar while you’re there. Great part of London and brilliant venue too.
@EIZOUK EIZO Limited announce the 23.5-inch FORIS FG2421, the world’s first #gaming monitor with a 240 Hz refresh rate. The FORIS FG2421 also features a low input lag and gaming preset modes that were developed with professional gamers to make it ideal for first-person shooter, racing, fighting, and other fast-action genres.
The FORIS FG2421 comes with a new feature called Turbo 240 that surpasses the 120 Hz refresh rate of conventional gaming monitors. This high refresh rate along with a response time of less than 1 ms produces the smoothest image display available on a gaming monitor.
This high contrast ratio increases visibility in dark scenes making it easier to spot enemies. Plus EIZO developed its own integrated circuit to minimize the input lag or the time it takes for commands from a keyboard, mouse, or controller to appear on the screen.
Two color modes for FPS (first-person shooter) and one for RTS (real-time strategy) games are included. The FPS and RTS modes were co-developed with professional gamers from Fnatic, a leading eSports team, to provide ideal brightness, contrast, and gamma settings. Three fully-customisable modes for users who want to import and export their own settings are also built-in.
EIZO is bundling its new software, ScreenManager Pro for Gaming, with the FORIS FG2421. This software lets users download gaming presets used by professional gamers from www.gaming.eizo.com or export their own customised colour modes to other gamers who also own the FORIS FG2421.
To allow for using the full 23.5-inch screen, the user can enlarge the image while maintaining the aspect ratio or expand it to fill the entire screen.
The FORIS FG2421 is designed to provide viewing comfort over long hours of gameplay. With the Turbo 240 set to off, the FORIS FG2421 maintains a refresh rate of 120 Hz and uses EIZO’s own hybrid technology for providing flicker-free images at any brightness level. A sensor on the front of the monitor detects the ambient brightness and adjusts the screen’s brightness to the ideal level which saves energy and prevents eyestrain. The sensor can enabled/disabled by the user.
PLUS The FORIS FG2421 debuts a new cabinet design. The back of the monitor features an illuminated EIZO logo on a glossy surface that is surrounded by a vermillion frame. Above this frame is a handle for carrying the monitor to a LAN party or gaming event. For viewing comfort, the stand provides 60 mm of height adjustment, 25° of tilt and 344° of swivel. A cable holder contributes to a clutter-free desktop.
The five-year manufacturer’s warranty2 ensures a long service life and is significantly longer than the three-year warranty of most gaming monitors.
The FORIS FG2421 is now available. Please contact the EIZO subsidiary or distributor in your country for details.
