Apple has made the decision to go all-in on USB Type-C / Thunderbolt, and compatible monitors are emerging to fill the void. Eizo has announced a 27-inch EV2780 that connects via USB Type-C.

USB Type-C – or just USB-C – has several “alt modes” (alternative modes) that allow the cables to carry video, audio and data signals, even power. This is what Eizo, like LG, is utilizing on its newest monitor.

- “With USB Type-C, a single cable transmits video, audio, and USB signals and supports a super speed transfer rate of up to 5 Gbps between the FlexScan EV2780 and connected devices. In addition, the FlexScan EV2780 can supply up to 30 watts of power for recharging notebook PCs and other devices via one USB Type-C cable, eliminating the need for separate power cables,” says Eizo.

The monitor can charge a laptop while connected.

If you have yet to adopt USB Type-C you can connect the monitor via one of the DisplayPort or HDMI input ports. The speaker has a “1mm bezel-less” design and 2x1W speakers, says Eizo.

It is a 27-inch IPS LCD panels with 2560x1440 resolution and 1000:1 contrast ratio. IPS LCD panels have wide viewing angles but relatively low contrast. There is also a built-in light sensor.

The release date was not announced but it appears that the monitor will retail for 102.800 Yen in Japan, which is approximately 900 Euro. More information is available at eizo.com.
