17" Monitor with LED Backlight Saves Energy and Reduces Eye Fatigue

FlexScan S1703Hakusan, Japan, November 14, 2012 – Eizo Nanao Corporation (TSE: 6737) today announced the FlexScan S1703, a 17-inch square (5:4 aspect ratio) LED-backlit monitor for corporate and small offices that consumes just 9 watts of power during typical operation and 0.5 watts in power save mode.


The FlexScan S1703 is also easy on the eyes. It comes with an ambient brightness sensor called Auto EcoView and a preset mode called Paper mode that lower the monitor’s brightness and color temperature respectively to reduce the blue light output which is known to cause eye fatigue.


In addition to Paper mode, the FlexScan S1703 also comes with EyeCare, Text, sRGB, and Custom (user-defined settings) modes. EyeCare mode lowers brightness to a mere 3 cd/m2 to help reduce eye fatigue in work environments with little or no ambient lighting. The user can toggle between modes manually in the OSD menu or automatically by using the bundled ScreenManager Pro for LCD software (Windows 8, 7 and Vista compatible1) to assign a mode to each application.

The FlexScan S1703 has a 1280 x 1024 native resolution. It uses a twisted nematic (TN) panel with 250 cd/m2 brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio, and 170° vertical and 160° horizontal viewing angles.

The FlexScan S1703 comes with a five-year warranty2. This is two years longer than the three-year warranty of most monitor for a low total cost of ownership.
