Eizo has released a range of new ColorEdge monitors designed for graphic artists, photographers, video editors and other professional users. The new 23-27-inch ColorEdge monitors are divided between three categories and all come with 10-bit IPS panels.
Eizoâ€™s new ColorEdge monitors
Eizoâ€™s ColorEdge monitors have long been considered some of the best monitors for professionals work with colors or graphic. The new range is here and we have included Eizoâ€™s own description of the three new categories below.
CG Series The CG series is carried over from the current ColorEdge lineup and will continue to be targeted at professionals in photography, prepress, video editing, post production, and other graphics fields requiring the most advanced monitors available. Common features include easy maintenance with a built-in SelfCalibration sensor, a wide color space, bundled calibration software and shading hood, and several preset modes for common broadcast standards.
The new models are the 27â€ť ColorEdge CG276 and 24â€ť ColorEdge CG246.
CX Series This new series is a mid-range series and targeted for professionals, prosumers and trade schools in photography and design. It comes with a new built-in SelfCorrection sensor that maintains the calibration results after the monitors have been calibrated by an external sensor. It covers most of the Adobe RGB color space. Calibration software and shading hood are available as options.
The first models in this series are the 27â€ť ColorEdge CX270 and 24â€ť ColorEdge CX240.
CS Series This series is also new to the ColorEdge lineup and is targeted at entry level users in photography and design. Like the CX series, it comes with a built-in SelfCorrection sensor, but a narrower color space covers most of sRGB. The first CS series model is the ColorEdge CS230 (23").
More information The built-in SelfCalibration sensor of the CG series is carried over from past ColorEdge monitors. Housed within the front bezel, it swings out and calibrates according to a user-determined schedule. It can calibrate after hours when the monitor has been turned off.
The built-in SelfCorrection sensor of the CX and CS series is also housed within the cabinet. With the optional Eizo ColorNavigator software, the sensor offers easy maintenance by adjusting the monitor to a calibration result previously obtained by using ColorNavigator and an external sensor.
With the CG and CX series, Eizo has added two technological innovations to improve image stability. The first is a reduction of more than 75% from 30 minutes to just seven minutes in the time it takes for the brightness and chromaticity to stabilize after the monitor is powered on. The other is Eizoâ€™s DUE (digital uniformity equalizer) function which corrects uniformity errors in brightness like in previous ColorEdge monitors, but now also keeps the monitorâ€™s color temperature and brightness stable in an environment with fluctuating ambient temperature changes such as an outdoor photo shoot.
All ColorEdge monitors come with one DVI-I, HDMI, and DisplayPort terminal each for connecting to different types of graphics boards. HDMI offers the additional benefit of direct connection with digital cameras. A USB hub with two upstream and two downstream ports are also included.
10-bit display (via the DisplayPort input).
Ergonomic stand on all models with tilt, swivel, portrait mode, and height adjustment.
3D look-up table on all models for better additive color mixture and device emulation on CG series models.
I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion on CG and CX series models.
Mercury-free LED backlight with CG246, CX240, and CS230.
Five-year manufacturerâ€™s limited warranty including the LCD panel for all models and a 12-month pixel defect warranty for the CG series.
EIZO will unveil all new models at Photokina 2012 from September 18 – 23 in Cologne, Germany. Pricing details will be available later. Learn more at Eizoâ€™s website
