Japanese display maker Eizo has added a monster 4K model to its stable. The FlexScan EV3237 spreads its 3840x2160 resolution over a 31.5" diagonal, resulting in a pixel density of 140 PPI. It's based on a "non-glare" IPS panel with 8-bit color reproduction, and it has a 10-bit look-up table that's supposed to smooth gradients.
The backlight uses a combination of DC and PWM technology that purportedly delivers a flicker-free experience regardless of the brightness level. Eizo also includes an overdrive circuit that can lower the gray-to-gray response time to five milliseconds. Other specs include a 300 cd/m² luminance rating and a 1000:1 contrast ratio.
Dual DisplayPort inputs support 4K resolutions at 60Hz, but the HDMI and DVI inputs are limited to 30Hz. Oddly, there's no mention of whether this is a single- or dual-tile unit. We've contacted Eizo for clarification and will update this post when we hear back.
The FlexScan EV3237 has an array of additional features, including a three-port USB 3.0 hub with extra juice for device charging. You also get an auto brightness mode driven by an ambient light sensor, a traditional picture-in-picture mode, and a picture-by-picture mode that can display up to four inputs simultaneously. There's also an automatic power-saving measure based on a "presence sensor" that detects user movement and body heat.
Eizo says the FlexScan EV3237 will ship in September, but it doesn't reveal how much the thing will cost. We've asked the company to clarify that detail, too.
Update — Eizo has confirmed that the display is a single-tile unit. The list price for the U.S. hasn't been finalized yet.
