Eizo announces CG247X with DCI-P3 support for video editing

05 Jul 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Eizo has announced a new PC monitor for professional video editing. 24-inch CG247X is the successor to CG247 and it offers support for several color gamuts, including Rec.709 and DCI-P3.

Eizo ColorEdge CG247X

Eizo’s new ColorEdge CG247X comes with 1920x1200 native resolution “that meets the needs of the media and entertainment industry”. It will replace the current CG247 and offer better support for wide color gamut.

The old CG247 offered 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 gamut and CG247X will offer 98% DCI-P3 coverage. In addition, CG247X offers preset modes for EBU, Rec.709, and SMPTE-C.

Eizo says that the contrast ratio has been increased from 1000:1 to 1500:1, making black significantly deeper. The monitor employs an IPS LCD panel. IPS panels have historically struggled to reproduce black faithfully. The company adds that a “typical monitor takes 30 minutes or more for its brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilize. The ColorEdge CG247X takes a mere 3 minutes.”

CG247X comes with a light-shielding hood that attaches magnetically to the monitor. It also has a built-in calibration sensor that swings down to self-calibrate the monitor at a specific time. In addition, Eizo has included all of its color management software.

Eizo CG247X will be available in September. No price was announced. You can learn more about the monitor on eizoglobal.com.
