EIZO FORIS FG2421: As quick as a flash and razor sharp

A 240 Hz gaming monitor for gamers on a shooter kick

(PresseBox) (Moenchengladbach, ) EIZO is set to stir up the world of gaming monitors on 30 October with the new flagship product from the FORIS series: The FORIS FG2421 is the most powerful gaming screen EIZO has ever manufactured. Its 240 Hz turbo mode breaks all records in terms of fast and clear image reproduction. Virtually instant image reproduction creates a special experience that highlights the strengths and dynamics of the game. Preset gaming modes co-developed with pro gamers offer an exceptional gaming experience, perfect for first-person shooter games, racing games, beat 'em up games and other fast-paced genres.

The Turbo 240 feature sets the heartbeat of the FG2421. This is where the screen breaks the previous 120 Hz/144 Hz conventions of traditional gaming monitors. Turbo 240 uses the LED technology of the backlight. 120 Hz signals are pulsed at double frequency, effectively accelerated to a refresh rate of 240 Hz. This pulsed reproduction is faster than one millisecond. It makes the user aware of sharp and clear structures, even during rapid movements. The FG2421 thereby achieves the most fluid image reproduction currently possible in the world of gaming monitors.

EIZO has developed fast electronics for the new FORIS to allow the player to see the effect on the screen with minimal time offset. A race car's responsiveness and drive have an input lag and time offset in the monitor. It consists of just 1.5 frames (1.5/120 of a second), meaning it remains just below the threshold of perceptibility. The reaction is instant, in a manner of speaking.

The EIZO FORIS FG2421 uses a 24" VA-LCD module (59.8 cm/23.5" display), giving it a performance that is comparable to TN-LCDs, even at maximum image quality. The full HD display in 16:9 format provides team players with a helpful side-view of the neighbouring screen thanks to a viewing angle of 176°. The native contrast of 5000:1 generates a deep black that gives the image reproduction its shine. This high contrast improves visibility in dark scenes and makes it easier to recognise opponents or obstacles.

The 'ScreenManager Pro for Gaming' software is included in the delivery of the device. It allows you to implement monitor gaming profiles such as the optimal settings for brightness, contrast and gamma. Gamers can exchange these profiles or download them from gaming.eizo.com. Two profiles co-developed with expert gamers from the Fnatic team have already been programmed at the factory. There are three additional storage spaces available. The HotKey feature of ScreenManager Pro allows users to toggle between connected speakers/headphones, image scaling and profiles quickly via the keyboard, or switch them on or off.

The variety of interfaces leaves nothing to be desired and includes HDMI, DisplayPort as well as DVI-D ports for PCs, games consoles and multimedia equipment such as Blu-ray players. A USB hub with one upstream and two downstream ports allows you to connect a mouse and keyboard to the computer via the monitor. An audio line-out and headphone jack complete the picture.

The FORIS FG2421 is housed in a sleek, impressive case and offers exceptional comfort despite its compact size. The versatile base is height adjustable by 60 mm, 344° rotatable and can tilt 25°. The carry handle on the rear makes transporting the monitor to a gaming event easy. A vermilion frame makes a strong design statement around the white-lit EIZO logo on the glossy black rear side.

The five-year manufacturer's warranty in the form of an on-site replacement service acts as a guarantee of the FORIS FG2421's reliability. This means that the length of the warranty is significantly longer than conventional gaming monitors, which often only last two years.

The monitor is available from 30 October as part of EIZO's 'Always On Target' campaign for the FORIS FG2421. The recommended retail price is 499 Euro.
