Hakusan, Japan, October 23, 2013 – EIZO Corporation (TSE: 6737) and Magnum Photos today announced a global collaboration to establish a program in which 14 ambassadors (see list below, including Elliot Erwitt and Martin Parr) from Magnum will integrate EIZO’s ColorEdge monitors into their color management workflow and provide EIZO with objective feedback on their experiences. Their insights will assist EIZO in its ongoing development of new graphics monitor and calibration software solutions.

EIZO and Magnum will also cooperate on creating individual profiles of the ambassadors with insights into their careers, bodies of work, and experiences with EIZO monitors. EIZO will begin posting these profiles on its web site (www.eizo.com) in November. In addition, each ambassador will share a selection of images from their work for EIZO to showcase its monitors at exhibitions and in showrooms worldwide.

Color and grayscale accuracy is paramount for Magnum and its photographer members. With numerous large-scale exhibitions in cultural institutions each year, ensuring the accurate translation of the image into fine-art prints is essential. The integration of EIZO’s ColorEdge series monitors into our workflow will serve both the restoration of historical Magnum imagery and the production of contemporary photographs by our members.” Alex Majoli, President, Magnum Photos International.

The ColorEdge series is EIZO’s professional line of color management monitors. Most ColorEdge monitors come with a built-in calibration or correction sensor and are supported by EIZO’s own ColorNavigator software to deliver predictable color results through hardware calibration and ease-of-use through completely automated screen adjustment.

Magnum Photos Ambassadors

Carl De Keyzer, Elliot Erwitt, Jim Goldberg, Paul Hayward, Alex Majoli, Enrico Mochi, Matt Murphy, Trent Parke, Martin Parr, Paulo Pellegrin, Gilles Peress, Jonathan Roquemore, Alec Soth, and Donovan Wylie.

News Post 29 – EIZO releases World’s first ever 240 Hz monitor for gaming

World's first ever 240Hz #monitor for #gaming from EIZO  www.eizo.co.uk

World’s first ever 240Hz #monitor for #gaming from EIZO http://www.eizo.co.uk

@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.

NEWS POST 22 – Photographers have an EIZO high street experience with Calumet

2 flagship Calumet stores are now home to EIZO monitors for photographers to trial

http://www.eizo.co.uk/EIZO-Calumet.html

Manchester and London now host three of the best EIZO monitors so photographers can put them through their paces.

Offering unbiased product trials in two of the Calumet stores with the heaviest footfall, EIZO and Calumet are now able to invite photographers to learn about colour management, why a monitor makes a difference and to run their own images through the machines so they can see the difference for themselves.

“The Calumet stores are perfect for photographers at any level to actually see for themselves the positive difference that an EIZO CG monitor will make to their pictures,” said Victor Aberdeen, EIZO ColorEdge Sales Manager. “Photographers often are put off by the technical stuff about monitors, but it is about the art, so being able to try them out for themselves brings the advantages into focus, showing photographers the detail ordinary monitors are hiding, which really benefits their images!

Each store has a ColorEdge CG276, CX240 and CS230 – for technical specs please visit www.eizo.co.uk and http://www.eizo.co.uk/EIZO-Calumet.html

“If you’ve never experienced an EIZO, well now here’s your chance.”

There is a free Colour Management Handbook to download through the EIZO UK website. www.eizo.co.uk

Colin Woodley, Business Manager of EIZO Limited, “At EIZO we are extremely fortunate to meet some amazing people in the professional graphics industry.   For the last five years we have had great pleasure sponsoring the Central Saint Martin’s end of year show for its BA Graphic Design course, where in 2012 we met Katy.  As a team we were blown away by her imagination, creativity and ideas.  Her input and spark has helped us relaunch our marketing campaigns and I am looking forward to debuting the finished piece, due Autumn 2013”

Katy Beveridge graduated with a first class honours from Central Saint Martin’s only last year and already her animation work has received the YCN Graduate Award, and been picked as one of Selfridges “Bright Young Things” championing the “most exciting young creators”. Her work has been exhibited internationally at film and Animation festivals such as Klik Amsterdam and the Toronto International Film Festival. Her graduate film “The Bicycle Animation” which used a bicycle wheel to create animated loops in real time went totally viral receiving over 1.5 million views and was featured on The Discovery Channel, The Huffington Post and The Atlantic.  Katy’s work aims to challenge the conventional notion of animation, focusing on the process behind the animation above the narrative.

Targeting serious photographers and graphics professionals, the plans are secretly under way, with the expected launch due Autumn 2013.  All that can be said today is EIZO Limited is delighted to be working on the new project as part of its evolving campaigns with its extensive range of ColorEdge monitors.
