Eizo just announced its FlexScan S2242W-H, a 22″ LCD monitor sporting a high color gamut of 95% Adobe RGB or 92% NTSC. The S2242W-H is clearly geared for those who require a high level of color fidelity. My guess is the S2242W-H achieves the higher color gamut thanks to a Wide Color Gamut CCFL (WCG-CCFL). The S2242W-H features a 1920 x 1200 pixel format, a relatively fast 6ms (GTG) response time, a high contrast ratio of 1200:1 and an auto-adjusting backlight that responds to the brightness level of the image shown to improve the contrast ratio. The S2242W-H is not going to be cheap at all at Â¥69,800 or about US$780. Although this is speculation, maybe the S2242W-H has a nice IPS (In-Plane Switching) LCD panel inside to justify the high price. Update: It turns out the S2242W-H makes use of a VA LCD panel. So it’s either MVA or PVA.
