Eizo adds motion-detection to LCDs
Two LCD monitors from Eizo Nanao will sense movement from the person in front of it, switching to sleep mode during times of inactivity.
The “EcoView Sense” feature, included in Eizo’s FlexiScan 20-inch EV2023W and 23-inch EV2303W, detects motion up to 120 cm (roughly 4 feet) in front of it. If there’s no movement for 40 seconds, the monitor goes into sleep mode. Likewise, if movement resumes, the monitor switches back on. These monitors are among the first to be TCO 5.0-certified, meaning that they conform to certain standards of visual ergonomics (such as response time and gloss level) and environmental friendliness. They’re also the first from Eizo to meet EPEAT Gold standards for green technology.
Other power-saving specs include ambient light detection and centralized brightness settings across multiple monitors for businesses. The EV2023 supports 1600 x 900 native resolution, and the EV 2303W supports 1920 x 1080. Both include a 0.45-watt internal speaker.
The energy-saving features would certainly come in handy for businesses — the obvious target for these two products — as workers aren’t likely to get too finnicky with power-saving on their own, but the overall energy savings could be huge. At home, I can’t imagine this would be much more useful than a monitor that detects inactivity on the computer itself.
Still, it might be a cool feature for people who watch movies on their computers — provided they don’t sit perfectly still while doing so.
