10+ Years of Primary Control Monitor Manufacturing
EIZO has been an industry leader in the innovation and development of quality 2K primary control monitors for ATC since 2005. Backed by over 45 years of technical expertise in visual display solutions, the Raptor SQ2825 is a 5th generation 2K x 2K monitor that culminates the features and functionality of EIZO’s line of primary control monitors while adding further value with new technology and improved operational reliability.
The unobtrusive bezels are approximately 40% slimmer than the previous model, measuring at just 36.1 mm on all sides so ATCOs can focus more on the screen.
The monitor’s depth has been reduced, bringing the weight distribution closer to the center of mass for lowering stress on mounting fixtures over time. It is also 50% lighter and more compact than the previous model, weighing just 14.6 kg.
The monitor’s design features rounded corners and edges for a pleasing and modern aesthetic.
Protection glass is optional with two variations – standard and fully flat. Standard glass covers the visible part of the LCD panel and extends to the inner bezel. Fully flat glass reaches to the edges of the monitor for a smooth, streamlined look. The monitor’s housing is built with edge protection for fully flat glass so it is not exposed and vulnerable to damage.
The newly designed rear housing can be easily configured to any mounting requirements without needing to remove any part of the housing. This ensures flexibility for meeting new installations or hardware changes that require desktop, VESA, chassis, panel mount or any combination thereof.
Direct Backlight System
The monitor’s unique LED direct backlight system has 16% more LED cells than its predecessor for increased efficiency. It offers superior brightness uniformity for smoother images compared to edge-type backlight solutions.
EIZO’s fully automated stability function uses an internal backlight sensor to stabilize the brightness level throughout the life of the monitor, compensating for fluctuations caused by variations in ambient temperature and the passage of time.
The direct backlight system is divided into four interchangeable quadrants, each of which performs consistently over a lifetime of 100,000 hours. Each quadrant is controlled by two independent sub-unit driver boards that protect the on-screen information from being visually impacted in the unlikely event that an LED stops performing.
Wide Brightness Range
The monitor can be adjusted within a wide brightness range of 2 to 500 cd/m2 to suit your environment’s requirements as well as the needs of the ATCO.
The monitor consumes just 120 watts at maximum brightness (500 cd/m2) and even less under typical operating conditions in control rooms. This saves energy and significantly reduces heat generation within the monitor; a leading cause of component failure.
Durability and Reliability
The monitor’s housing uses full sheet steel industrial-grade housing for durability in demanding mission-critical environments.
The Raptor SQ2825 is developed specifically for meeting the stringent requirements of mission-critical ATC environments with 24/7 operation.
The monitor provides noiseless, fanless operation while still maintaining low heat output without impacting performance.
Built-In Power Supply
The power supply of the monitor is built in, freeing the installation space of an additional power brick and cabling. A secondary power supply is available as an option.
EIZO offers extensive customization in order to meet the specific needs of individual control centers.

Dual link DVI video signal inputs are included as well as the option of an additional DisplayPort or analog 5-BNC inputs. The monitor also comes equipped with a wide range of communication interfaces for connection to a network, remote monitor management, or maintenance purposes – RS232, RS422, USB, and TCP/IP.
Non-Intrusive Hardware Calibration
The monitor comes equipped with EIZO’s hardware calibration functionality using the optional EIZO EACAL-R01 luminance reader. Easily accessed through the OSD menu, calibration of the backlight brightness, gamma, and white point can be carried out in just minutes. No additional software is needed, ensuring calibration operation is non-intrusive to your system.
