EIZO Limited today introduces the FORIS FS2333, a 23” full
high-definition (1920 x 1080 native resolution) home entertainment
monitor. The FORIS FS2333 is designed for gaming as well as other
leisure activities such as watching movies and editing photos. It
features all-new tone mapping technology called “Smart
Insight” with five settings for RTS (real time strategy) and
FPS (first person shooter) games that EIZO co-developed with
Fnatic, one of the world’s leading professional esports
Smart Insight automatically identifies dark areas of an image
and improves visibility. Important details in the shadows such as
the location of an opponent become easier to spot so gamers can
react more quickly. Because Smart Insight uses tone mapping, it
improves visibility in dark areas while preserving image details
without reducing contrast. This is a significant improvement over
conventional gaming monitors which attempt to achieve improvements
in visibility by applying gamma correction uniformly across the
image resulting in blur and low contrast in dark areas.
The FORIS FS2333 comes with two other “Smart”
technologies called Smart Resolution and Smart Detection. Smart
Resolution is EIZO’s own super-resolution technology that
analyses an image for noise and blurring and then corrects the blur
without accentuating the noise. This feature is “Smart”
because it adjusts only those areas where it is needed. It even
distinguishes skin tones and text from other content and optimises
how they are displayed. Smart Detection identifies where on the
screen a video or game is being played and applies super-resolution
processing to sharpen the image while leaving other areas
The FORIS FS2333 uses an IPS panel and a mercury-free LED
backlight. The IPS panel offers vivid display of colour and wide
178° viewing angles. The grey-to-grey response time is just 3.4
ms, the fastest for a monitor of this size with an IPS panel. The
input lag, which is the difference between when a signal is input
into the monitor and then shown on the screen, is just
Other features gamers will enjoy include speaker and headphone
jacks, a remote control with access to the on-screen display menu,
and multiple connectivity options with dual HDMI inputs, one DVI-D
(digital), and one D-Sub (analog) input.
A scaling function is included for those who play games at less
than the monitor’s native resolution of 1920 x 1080 but want
to take advantage or the monitor’s 23” screen size. The
scaling function enlarges the image while maintaining the aspect
ratio or expands it to fill the entire screen.
An ergonomic stand allows for positioning the screen at an angle
most comfortable for the user. It includes 60 mm of height
adjustment, 25° of tilt and 344° of swivel. It also comes
with a handle on the backside which makes it simple to carry the
monitor to a gaming event.
For amateur digital photography enthusiasts, this monitor is
compatible with EIZO EasyPIX, an optional colour matching tool
consisting of calibration software and a colour sensor. EIZO
EasyPIX calibrates the monitor’s brightness, colour
temperature, and gamma to specific values.
“We are really excited to be releasing this new product
into the UK. During the last couple of years EIZO has had great
success in the global gaming community with our FORIS range of
