Eizo has introduced ColorEdge CG245W, the first monitor in the graphics industry with a built-in calibration sensor and self-calibrating capability.
Eizo CG245W for graphic
ColorEdge CG245W is the first monitor to feature self-calibrating capabilities. Designed for pre-press, digital photography, video editing, and post production work the monitor houses a built-in calibration device in its upper bezel that swings down at user-scheduled times.
By using the scheduling function in the menu or the bundled ColorNavigator calibration software, the ColorEdge CG245W can be scheduled to self-calibrate at a specific time and at specific intervals. Since self-calibration is performed independent of the computer, a calibrated ColorEdge CG245W can be used with any operating system even if the OS is not supported by ColorNavigator.
The ColorEdge CG245W uses an IPS (in-plane switching) LCD panel with a native resolution of 1920×1200 (16:10 aspect ratio) and reproduces 98% of the Adobe RGB color space. The maximum brightness is 270 cd/m2, contrast ratio is 850:1, and the viewing angles are 178°. One DisplayPort and dual DVI-I inputs are included.
ColorNavigator includes a “Correlation Utility” that matches the measurement results of the ColorEdge CG245W’s built-in calibration sensor to those of an external calibration device. This may be necessary in a work environment where the ColorEdge CG245W is used with other monitors and all measurement results need to be standardized.

EIZO’s Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) function is included to counteract brightness and chroma uniformity errors that are characteristic of LCD panels.
It also offers six preset color modes that reproduce common color spaces used in pre-press, digital photography, broadcasting and digital cinema: Adobe RGB, sRGB, Rec709, EBU, SMPTE-C, and DCI.
Outfitted with a shading hood that can be used in portrait mode as well as landscape mode.
Ergonomic FlexStand which offers portrait display, 157 mm height adjustment, 30° tilt, 344° swivel, and 90° rotation.
16-bit internal processing for smooth display of grayscale tones.
3D-look up table (LUT) that improves the panel’s additive color mixture (combination of red, green, and blue), a key factor in its ability to achieve gray balance or neutral gray tones.
Simulation of three types of red-green color vision deficiency – protanopia and deuteranopia, as well as tritanopia, a blue-yellow color vision deficiency – for verification of how color schemes appear to people with color blindness.
Five-year manufacturer’s warranty
