This monitor comes with an EIZO-patented super-resolution technology called Smart Resolution that analyzes the displayed content for noise and blur. It ensures the noise is not accentuated while correcting the blur to the extent needed to sharpen the image. For example, when playing a game, Smart Resolution can sharpen the content to make it more vivid. For other type of content such as photos and web pages, Smart Resolution distinguishes skin tones and text and enhances how they are displayed. This monitor uses an IPS panel and a mercury-free LED backlight. The IPS panel offers vivid display of color and wide 178-degree viewing angles. Even when looking at the screen from an angle there's little change in the contrast or color.
