Eizo, a company known by people who demand the best from their display (generally reserved for graphic artists, heavy industrial applications, etc), has just announced a new monitor, the DuraVision FDH3601. Upon first glance, outside of its massive frame (36″), there does not appear to be anything especially unique about this monitor. However, its the capabilities that set it apart… the ability to run a resolution of 4096 x 2160. This new resolution is known as “4K” and is the successor to the ever popular 1080p (which runs at 1920×1080).

Here are the other specs:

  • LED backlight
  • 700cd/m2 brightness
  • 1,000:1 contrast ratio
  • two DVI-D ports, two DisplayPorts (HDCP)
  • EcoView Sense sensor (the display turns off automatically after some time when the user moves away from it)

Eizo promises the discreensplay can be used for 2 years (24 hours a day) without any problems. The display is slated for release on September 7, with a staggering price tag of $36,000 US.
