Designed for business use, the monitor is the latest in EIZO’s “EcoView” line of ecological, ergonomic and energy-efficient monitors.
It debut several features including a slimmed-down cabinet design, a motion sensor that saves energy by activating the screen only when a user is present, and a new ergonomic stand.

Eizo takes care of the environment and saves energy
- “We have actively participated in the TCO labeling system for monitors since its inception in 1992 so we are delighted that the EV2303W is amongst the first products to receive TCO 5.0 Displays certification,” said Minoru Kontani, senior manager of EIZO’s Overseas Sales & Marketing Department. “With both TCO 5.0 Displays and EPEAT Gold certification, these are sure to be one of the most eco- and user-friendly monitor available.”
Issued by TCO Development, the TCO is one of the most widely-recognized labeling systems for IT equipment. The latest guidelines for monitors stipulate revised criteria for energy efficiency consistent with Energy Star 4.0, manufacturer declaration of hazardous substances, and enhanced monitor and packaging recyclability. EPEAT stands for Electronic Product Environmental Assessment Tool and is a system in which manufacturers declare their products’ conformance to a set of environmental criteria. Gold is the highest EPEAT rating available and indicates that compliant products meet all 23 of EPEAT’s required criteria and 75% of its optional criteria.

EIZO’s new integrated EcoView Sense feature offers convenience and energy savings by detecting when the user is present. EcoView Sense will prompt the monitor to switch to power save mode when it does not detect anyone for 40 seconds, and then resume normal operation when the user returns. EcoView Sense can differentiate between animate and inanimate objects so it will still enter power save mode if it detects an object such as the backrest of a chair.
An Auto EcoView sensor measures ambient light and optimizes the screen’s brightness to the user’s ideal level. With Auto EcoView turned on the FlexScan EV2303W operate at up to 40% greater energy efficiency, typically consuming just 18 watts1 When turned off via the main power switch it consume no electricity at all.
For further reductions in electricity consumption, EIZO’s EcoView Net software offers business users centralized control over the power settings of up to 2000 compliant EIZO monitors on a network. For more details, click here
