Variety of ports

Best connectivity

Variety of interfaces for PC and video

An HDMI input is available for connecting to computers to receive signals from a digital source, such as an HDD recorder. There is a composite (BNC) input for connecting analogue video surveillance equipment and surveillance cameras. The monitor supports NTSC, PAL and SECAM signals.


Easy to use

Features for greater comfort

Overscan or normal view

The monitor supports both an overscan and normal screen view. The normal view shows 100% of the image and is perfect for regular video signals. The overscan view presents 95% of the image and removes irrelevant TV signal data on the image edges.


Clear colors thanks to the Up View function

The EIZO Up View function ensures that the colors will not appear washed out if you have to look up at the screen. This is an advantage, for example, if the monitor is mounted on a wall or ceiling.

Image quality

Precise, high-contrast, bright and crisp screen

Different resolutions

The monitor can receive a Full-HD signal (1920 x 1080) via HDMI and display with a native resolution of 1280 x 1024.

Other resolutions can be scaled proportionally or expanded to fill the screen. This is helpful when using applications or digital and analogue signals that don’t handle 1280 x 1024 pixels.

Reduced noise and flicker

Thanks to its Y/C separation, the monitor offers images free from noise and flickering. During Y/C separation, the luminance signal (Y) and chrominance signal (C), i.e. the brightness and color information from the image signal, are separated, preventing overlap artifacts. In addition, the monitor displays 16,77 million colors clearly and vividly. 

For the sake of the eyes

Flicker free

The monitor is flicker-free at every brightness setting. This is great for users, as their eyes will not tire as quickly, allowing them to work in front of the screen for longer periods of time without fatigue.


And reliability

Two-year warranty

EIZO grants a two-year warranty. This is possible thanks to the highly developed production process based on a simple principle of success: sophisticated and innovative technology, made from high-end materials.

24/7 use

The FDS1903-A is built for 24-hour use and is characterised by maximum reliability.



Environmentally and socially conscious production

Socially responsible production

The FDS1903-A is produced in a socially responsible way. It is free of child labour and forced labour. Suppliers along the supply chain have been carefully selected and they have also committed themselves to produce in a socially responsible way. This applies in particular to conflict minerals. We present a detailed report about our social responsibility annually and voluntarily.


Environmentally and climate friendly

Each FDS1903-A is manufactured in our own factory, which implements an environmental and energy management system in accordance with ISO 14001 und ISO 50001. This includes measures to reduce waste, wastewater and emissions, resource and energy consumption, as well as to encourage environmentally conscious behavior among employees. We publicly report on these measures on an annual basis. 


Sustainable and durable

The FDS1903-A is designed to have a long service life and normally outlasts the warranty period by some distance. Replacement parts are available many years after production has ceased. The entire lifecycle takes into account the impact on the environment as the longevity of the product and the fact it can be repaired saves resources and protects the environment. When designing the FDS1903-A, we took a minimalistic approach to our resources by using high-quality components and materials, as well as a careful production process.

Monitor Test

Test the properties and parametres of your monitor quickly and easily with software developed in-house at EIZO.


To keep your monitor looking like new at all times and to prolong the service life of your device, we recommend cleaning it regularly. Clean the casing and LCD surface as described below:

IMPORTANT: Never use thinner, benzene, alcohol (ethanol, methanol or isopropyl alcohol), scouring agents or other strong solvents as these may damage the casing and the LCD display.

Remove marks by wiping the casing with a soft cloth, which you have previously moistened with a mild cleaning agent. Never spray wax or cleaning agents directly on to the casing. (The manual contains exact details.)

LCD display
Where necessary, the monitor surface may be cleaned using a soft cloth (for example a cotton cloth or glasses cloth). Stubborn marks can generally be removed by wetting the cloth with a bit of water to increase the cleaning strength.

No, you do not need a driver. The monitors are identified via the signaling line and then installed as a standard or plug & play monitor.

We cannot make a direct recommendation. The output signal should be digital and should support the maximum resolution of the monitor.

Digital signal encryption system as copy protection for digital contents, for example for videos, music, etc. The transmission of digital contents is protected as the contents are encrypted on the transmitter's side, sent via a DVI output and once again decrypted on the recipient's side. Digital contents may not be reproduced if both the transmitter and recipient device do not support HDCP.

Screens have millions of pixels, which each have a surface area of less than a hundredth of a square millimeter. These elements may have defects, which are expressed by them being constantly lit or unlit. Visibility is fundamentally dependent on the surrounding area. For example, lit elements are almost invisible in a bright environment. Each LCD screen is unique in terms of pixel errors.
To give you a clear statement about what frequency of pixel errors EIZO deems tolerable, EIZO screen models are tested according to internationally recognized standards. On average the actual levels are in fact far below the tolerances across all of the devices. LCD modules that do not meet these requirements are not used at EIZO.  Depending on the model, EIZO monitors have a zero pixel error guarantee for completely illuminated sub-pixels (partial pixels ISO 9241-307). Valid: six months from the purchase date.

Warranty & Repair service

Since the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) entered into force on March 24, 2006, old electrical equipment can no longer be disposed of with the normal waste. It must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner and recycled. This also applies to old EIZO devices.

If you are a private end consumer, you should simply take your old monitor to a local collection center. You will not be charged for this. You can find out where your nearest collection center is from your local authority.

If you are a business customer, simply contact us.

  • WS: White/silver casing
  • WT: White

EIZO monitors generally have two or more signal inputs. You can easily switch between two or more computers by pressing a button on the front of the monitor. For devices with KVM switch functionality, the USB hub also switches to the respective computer at the same time.

EIZO provides up to a five-year warranty, although some devices have a different warranty period. You can find out the exact warranty periods for each product either in the warranty terms and conditions above, in the datasheet, or on the EIZO international website. The long warranty periods are made possible by a highly developed manufacturing process based on a simple principle of success: sophisticated and innovative monitor technology, manufactured from high-end materials. For you, the 5-year warranty means a high level of investment security and savings on follow-up costs (total cost of ownership), which would be incurred without warranty service, for example, for maintenance and repairs.

  • Innovative service concept from EIZO, which sets standards and meets the trend towards longer depreciation periods. Safety that convinces and you can count on.
  • First-class material and careful processing provide for the extraordinary longevity and make so long guarantee durations possible.
  • Follow-up costs that would be incurred without warranty service, e.g. for maintenance and repairs, are avoided and lead to optimized cost transparency (Total Cost of Ownership (TCO).
