New 36-inch Monitor From EIZO Packs 4096 x 2160 Pixels Resolution

With the current consumer PC display standard positively, definitely stagnated at 1920x1080 TV resolution, primed for Blu-ray movies and Xbox games modified for PC, the launch of every new PC monitor that crosses the 1080p mark is met with some celebrations. Display major EIZO's latest such creation is the 36-inch DuraVision FDH3601. This display sports a native resolution of 4096 x 2160 pixels.

The monitor likely uses a Sharp ASV panel with 170° viewing angles. Regardless, it's 10-bit, supporting 1.07 billion colors, is CCFL-illuminated with maximum brightness of 700 cd/m², and has 1000:1 static contrast ratio. The monitor also packs the Digital Uniformity Corrector (DUE), a feature EIZO has been working on for the last few years, that ensures perfect light homogeneity. Slated for a September 7, 2011 release in Japan, the EIZO DuraVision FDH3601 is priced at US $36,000.

Awesome monitor. In about 5 years it should be affordable. Love to see them continue to push the Native Res.

HAHA, Now it cannot run Crysis! :toast:
But, seriously, it's a good change to the market of displays.
Eizo is a major player in the professional market, in which this display is targeted to.
The obvious path for this is that it will reach consumer market thereafter.

How many graphics cards can even run this resolution? lol

Also, the price isn't that much. Apple charges just about as much. (troll face -> :> )

LED backlighting provides inconsistent color coverage is why. W-LED barely covers anything at all, which is why everything uses it, because its cheap. RGB-LED gives a ton of color gamut coverage, but mostly more than anything uses.

Standard backlighting keeps consistent color ranges with minimal backlight bleed which comes from LED as well. What im wondering is what technology this Sharp panel conforms to. Similar to VA panels? IPS Panels?

At that price I could build a better looking wall of Eyefinity screens including the rig to drive the displays.

This is hardly intended for gamers. As some one previously stated, EIZO is a big player in the professional field. Graphic Designers and the print industry will love this.

Exactly. Though the price tag is still pretty major despite the target demographic and the unique specs.

Would not want this on my desktop. I would like the picture quality thought, but in a 27' form.

At some point for video motion resolution is just not going to be high enough to see the benefits of such a high resolution display. I see this kind of display being primarily for still photos or otherwise less motion intensive tasks. We really don't need anything beyond 2560 * 1600 for video or gaming purposes and even then I would bet that in motion LCDs are just not capable of using their full resolution anyway. :p

246 Pixels per 1$.

Or .004 cents per pixel.

VS

1920x1200 =

9015.65 pixels per dollar for a $230 a monitor.

or .000011 cents per pixel.

I like progress.

Let's hope in 2012 we will see smaller 21-27" screens but with same high pixel density. 2560x1600 in 22" would be a sweetspot for me.
