EIZO Reveals Limited Edition 21.6-Inch Foris Nova OLED Monitorby Anton Shilov on October 2, 2019 5:00 PM EST
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.

RandomUsername3245 - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - linkIt is a 21" monitor, so perhaps it would be more appropriate to say: "Tiny serial killer plans his next move"
Alex.A - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - linkThat's not even a photograph of a person, it's a render.
PeachNCream - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - linkIt's just a hipster. Aside from being unsightly furniture-like objects at coffee shops, they're pretty harmless so there's nothing to worry about.
Cullinaire - Monday, October 7, 2019 - linkBravo!
Flunk - Wednesday, October 2, 2019 - link500 will be made? Why bother reporting on it?
GreenReaper - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - linkBecause 500 must be sold - and one of those hipsters buying it could be *you*.
Valantar - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - linkThat top photo is a gross misrepresentation of the size of a 21" monitor. Unless, that is, your normal mode of viewing is as far away as possible so that the monitor looks bigger for people who happen to be behind it.
lilkwarrior - Thursday, October 3, 2019 - linkAn OLED for entertainment purposes without Dolby Vision (ideally HDR10+ As well) orHDMI 2.1in 2019? This is DOA then.
It’s becoming extremely frustrating who the heck are the making decisions or research studies for these companies making panels this year.
Better to get an LG HDMI 2.1 OLED monitor with Dolby Vision HDR, HLG HDR, & G-Sync to significantly more appropriately cater to entertainment purposes this year and YEARS to come.
