EIZO to Launch Power Saving LCD Monitors with Infrared Presence Sensor

Japanese premium class monitor maker EIZO, is taking new approach for power saving, by presenting LCD monitors that implement presence sensor. This infrared sensor will detect if a person sits in front of the monitor, and if not it will turn off the monitor until there's someone in front of it again. Placed on the lower side of the monitor, the presence sensor detects objects within a 120 cm range. The monitor shifts to the power saving mode when nobody is in the detection range for 40 seconds. EIZO will offer two monitor with the "EcoView Sense" technology, the FlexScan EV2023W-H and the FlexScan EV2303W-T. The former is a 20-inch model with a resolution of 1600x900, and the latter is a 23-inch model with 1920x1080 16:9 wide resolution. The typical power consumption of EV2023W-H is 25W, and that of the EV2303W-T model is 18W. In power saving mode, both models consume only 0.7W or lower. The EV2023W will use VA panel with better viewing angles, while the EV2303W will integrate normal TN LCD panel. EIZO will release the two monitors on May 21, 2009.

Very interesting, but whats even more interesting is the fact that they are using 16:9 tv resolutions for comp monitors.

I like the sensor idea. Very clever.

But LOL at that photo. Look a massive spreadsheet with numbers so small (on a x1080 screen) that they are illegible. Shame really, a 1920x1200 would have been a much better monitor IMO.

I'd think there is an option to turn it off (so that the display stays on). Or else it's not so useful. Hope you don't have to keep moving, if I'm playing some poker, I'm pretty still, wouldn't be nice if display turns off middle of important flop.
