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.

not to bad of a price when you consider what you get. most displays that claim 10-bit aren't true 10-bit, so if this thing sreally is true 10-bit at that resolution with that much brightness it's well worth the price tag. not that i have anywhere near that amount to spend.

How many graphics cards can even run this resolution? lol
I imagine it would use two cables and act like two monitors. I could be wrong though.

At that price I could build a better looking wall of Eyefinity screens including the rig to drive the displays.
How is a gird of bezels "better looking"? Yes, it's significantly cheaper, higher res, more practical, etc.

Would not want this on my desktop. I would like the picture quality thought, but in a 27' form.
I'm not sure how you expect a 27-foot monitor to fit on your desk.

Back in the days, Starcraft didn't have the option to change the resolution so players with better rigs won't have a unfair advantage of bigger visible battlefield. If 1024*768 was considered an unfair advantage, what would they call this humongous beast ?

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.
LMFAO!! you mean now it CAN run Crysis??? :toast::roll:

I started reading and thought, wow I can now sell my Westy 37" and then I saw 36k and was like WTF!!!

It's not extremely impressive when you consider it's only 129ppi. The 17" 1920x1200 laptop panels that have been available for years beat it at 133ppi.

It's aspect ratio is also wider than 16:9 at 19:10. Just what we need, even wider monitors for games and productivity.

Glad to see anyone make a monitor in any resolution other than 1080p. It gives me hope that someone out there realizes that people do other things with their computers than watch HD video.

But this resolution and this price actually reinforces my view that those running the monitor industry have no interest in what is best for the consumer, but instead is focusing on what they trick people into buying and producing the most profit for themselves.

In the past, monitors used to get bigger and cheaper. I would have expected something like 2048x1536 or 2560x1440 to have replaced 1920x1200 by now.

Instead we are stuck FullHD and only get monitors like this that are rediculous to people living in tough economic times. I mean why even introduce a montior that costs $36000????

Boggles the mind.

what an oddball ratio. One would think they would have made it 16:9 or 16:10 at least.
