EIZO has introduced a unusual new 4K OLED monitor that is aimed at the personal entertainment. Dubbed the Foris Nova, this new display is a compact 21.6-inch 4K monitor that covers 80% of the BT.2020 color gamut and features a stylish design. Most curious of all, however, EIZO is releasing it as a limited edition product – only 500 of the OLED monitors will be made.
Based on an OLED panel made by JOLED, EIZO’s Foris Nova features a 3840×2160 resolution, 132 – 330 nits brightness (typical/peak), a contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1, and a black-white-black response time of 0.04 ms. The display can reproduce 1.07 billion colors, covers 80% of the BT.2020 color space and supports HDR10 and HLG HDR formats.
The Foris Nova connects to host PCs using two HDMI 2.0 inputs, it also has 1 W stereo speakers, one headphone output, and one line out.
EIZO is officially positioning its Foris Nova for entertainment, though its limited support for the BT.2020 color gamut may be helpful to production personnel in a pinch as well.
