Eizo launches its first OLED monitor

02 Oct 2019 | Rasmus Larsen |

Eizo has introduced its first OLED monitor. The "next-generation" 22-inch Foris Nova features the world's first printed 4K OLED panel.

OLED by printing method

Japan's Eizo, known for its professional monitors, will launch its first OLED monitor next month. The Eizo Foris Nova was officially announced in Japan today and will reach the US, Europa, and China in the near future. - "As a Visual Technology Company that creates new value for imaging solutions through the introduction of cutting-edge technologies and devices, we are excited to now provide the next-generation in content viewing by employing JOLED's high-definition 4K OLED," said Hiroshi Nagai, SM for Product Technology, Eizo.

Eizo Foris Nova

The company confirms that it is using an OLED panel from display manufacturer Japan OLED (JOLED), a joint venture between Japan Display, Sony, and Panasonic. It uses RGB stripe sub-pixels rather than the 'white OLED' found in LG Display's panels for TVs. It is also the world's first 4K OLED panel produced by printing method. The panel has 4K (3840x2160 pixels) resolution, 60Hz refresh rate,10-bit colors, and approximately 80% coverage of the BT.2020 gamut. The panel's response time is 0.04 ms but the screen is unlikely to reach those levels due to its low refresh rate of 60Hz. It claims to support HDR, including HDR10 and HLG, but its peak brightness is limited to 330 nits, signalling that Japan OLED still has work to do in the area of HDR.

Eizo Foris Nova

It is a relatively small monitor at 21.6 inches in diagonal but Japan OLED says that it "hopes to continue working together with Eizo to strengthen product development (of OLED), targeting high-end monitors". The same panel is found in Asus' 22-inch PQ22UC. It represents a first step for Eizo and another step forward for Japan OLED but it comes at a price. In Japan, Eizo Foris Nova will be available from November 1 for 350,000 Yen, or approximately 3,300 USD.
