The HD2442W incorporates an ASIC
(application specifi c integrated circuit)
originally developed by EIZO for use in
LCD TVs. The ASIC produces images that
look more natural by boosting contrast and reducing motion picture blur.

EIZO’s ContrastEnhancer adjusts the brightness, gain,

resulting dynamic contrast ratio of 3000:1 ensures the

Flawless Motion Picture Playback
Motion picture fi lm is generally shot and projected
at 24 frames per second (fps). Motion pictures shown on
TVs or monitors without 24 fps display capability produce motion artifacts known as “judder” during frame or
“pulldown” conversion. Judder is especially noticeable in
panning or scrolling movements, with transitions between
adjacent fi lm frames appearing rough and staggered. The
HD2442W’s 1080/24p (48 Hz) display capability ensures
video playback as smooth as you would see in a cinema.

Rich Tonal Reproduction
While computer monitors display tones from pure white
to pure black in a range of 0 to 255, broadcast media and
entertainment equipment display these same tones from 16
to 235. As a result, when computer monitors display video
or game content, images often look dull and washed out.
The HD2442W, however, displays video signals in the 16 to
235 range so it reproduces these tones exactly as intended.
Input Lag of Just One Frame
New to the HD2442W, “Thru” mode reduces input lag,
or the difference between the time a signal is input into the
monitor and then shown on the screen, by one frame with a
progressive signal and two frames with an interlace signal.
The resulting delay of approximately one frame, or a mere
1/60th of a second, allows gamers to see the action as it
happens and react immediately.

Multiple Ports for PC and AV Connectivity
The HD2442W comes with dual PC and dual HighDefi nition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) ports to connect
not only to PCs, but also the latest HD game consoles and
audio-visual (AV) devices such as Blu-ray. Two USB ports
on the side of the monitor offer easy connection to peripherals like digital cameras, and MP3 players. Sound from all
connected devices can be routed through an external set of
speakers or AV devices connected through the HDMI inputs.

The ideal screen ratio depends on two factors — what

for and what your personal
preferences are. To this end,
EIZO offers three settings:
Standard (overscan), Full
Image (underscan), and Full
Screen. Standard eliminates
extraneous television broadcast data and production
equipment that sometimes
appears at the edges of the
screen. Full Image reveals
nearly 100% of the screen
image and is suited for fi lm
viewing and gaming. Full

ideal for anyone who does
not want to see the black bars

fi rst time, this new remote offers full control of
the OSD menu plus one-touch access to picturein-picture, screen size, and PC/HDMI input
selection. The intuitive design makes it ideal
for gaming, fi lm viewing, or any other situation
where you may be at a distance from the monitor.

Rich Tonal Reproduction
While computer monitors display tones from pure white
to pure black in a range of 0 to 255, broadcast media and
entertainment equipment display these same tones from 16
to 235. As a result, when computer monitors display video
or game content, images often look dull and washed out.
The HD2442W, however, displays video signals in the 16 to
235 range so it reproduces these tones exactly as intended.
Input Lag of Just One Frame
New to the HD2442W, “Thru” mode reduces input lag,
or the difference between the time a signal is input into the
monitor and then shown on the screen, by one frame with a
progressive signal and two frames with an interlace signal.
The resulting delay of approximately one frame, or a mere
1/60th of a second, allows gamers to see the action as it
happens and react immediately.

Multiple Ports for PC and AV Connectivity
The HD2442W comes with dual PC and dual HighDefi nition Multimedia Interface (HDMI) ports to connect
not only to PCs, but also the latest HD game consoles and
audio-visual (AV) devices such as Blu-ray. Two USB ports
on the side of the monitor offer easy connection to peripherals like digital cameras, and MP3 players. Sound from all
connected devices can be routed through an external set of
speakers or AV devices connected through the HDMI inputs.

Ideal Screen Ratio
The ideal screen ratio depends on two factors — what
you are using the monitor
for and what your personal
preferences are. To this end,
EIZO offers three settings:
Standard (overscan), Full
Image (underscan), and Full
Screen. Standard eliminates
extraneous television broadcast data and production
equipment that sometimes
appears at the edges of the
screen. Full Image reveals
nearly 100% of the screen
image and is suited for fi lm
viewing and gaming. Full
Screen expands images to
fi ll the entire screen and is
ideal for anyone who does
not want to see the black bars
that appear across the top
and bottom in Standard and
Full Image modes.

Do Two Things at Once with Picture-in-Picture
Standard (overscan)
The BrightRegulator function detects changes in the
ambient brightness and signals the backlight to adjust the
screen brightness accordingly. This ensures the screen is
never too bright or too dark, thereby preventing eye fatigue
when working, playing games or watching videos.

PC and Video Viewing Modes

Several viewing modes are available for both computer

there’s Standard, Dynamic, and Custom modes, as well
as Cinema and Game modes, which are available for the
fi rst time with the HD2442W. Cinema mode enhances fi lm
viewing by bringing out fi ne detail such as subtle differences in flesh tones and darker tones often visible in scene
