Eizo ColorEdge

Effective color management requires monitors with accurate color reproduction and gradation characteristics. With ColorEdge monitors you get factory-adjusted gamma, extensive hardware calibration capabilities and an exceptionally wide colour gamut. Their outstanding performance and reliability make them ideal for a wide range of professional environments where color reproduction is critical, including photography, graphics, printing and publishing. Below we focus on the popular CG243W 24.1″ model.

ColorEdge GC243W 24.1″ LCD Display

With the CG243W, you’ll get outstanding color for just about any imaging task such as pre-press, digital photography, video editing, and post production. Features include a wide color gamut, IPS panel, and a DisplayPort input.

Key Features

Hardware Calibration for Better Colour

ColorEdge monitors offer hardware calibration which means color settings are adjusted inside the monitor so there is no displayable loss of tonalities. This produces more predictable results and ensures color display is much more uniform between ColorEdge units.

Simple and Precise Calibration with ColorNavigator

The bundled ColorNavigator software makes calibration both simple and quick. Just input target values for brightness, white point, and gamma. ColorNavigator works with a wide range of measurement devides to directly utilitize the monitor’s look-up table and create an ICC profile within minutes.

Wide Color Gamut

The monitor reproduces 97% of the Adobe RGB color space so it can display most colors in a digital photo taken in Adobe RGB mode. Furthermore, it also has an sRGB mode to accurately reproduce colors in this narrower but commonly used color space, such as those seen on web pages or digital photos taken in sRGB mode.

Instant Brightness Stabilization

An EIZO-patented drift correction sensor quickly stabilizes the brightness level after startup or coming out of power saving mode. Furthermore, the monitor detects and compensates for brightness changes caused by surrounding temperatures and the passage of time.

Brightness and Color Uniformity with DUE

Fluctuations in brightness and chroma on different parts of the screen is a common trait of LCD monitors. To counteract EIZO a digital uniformity equalizer (DUE). DUE utilizes the monitor’s 12-bit look-up table (LUT) with an extensive palette of 4,081 grayscale tones for each R, G, and B, and internal calculation accuracy of 16-bits. This ensures a Delta-E difference of 3 or less across the screen when the monitor leaves the factory.

6-Bit Internal Processing

With most LCD monitors, the black level is usually too bright which leads to banding and washing out of dark grays. 16-bit internal processing allows the monitor to reproduce a high level of detail in dark areas.

FlexScan SX

These widescreen monitors offer the large screen sizes and color control needed for DTP, CAD, and graphic design professionals as well as digital photography prosumers. Below we focus on the popular 24.1″ model.

FlexScan SX2462W 24.1″ LCD Display

Key Features

Wide colour gamut

The monitor reproduces 98% of the Adobe RGB colour space so it can display most colors in a digital photo taken in Adobe RGB mode.

10-bit simultaneous display.

The FlexScan SX2462W employs a 12-bit look-up table with a color palette of 68 billion colors from which the most appropriate 16.7 million (8 bits) are displayed. It also uses 16-bit internal processing for smooth display of grayscale tones without banding. What’s more, using the DisplayPort input, this monitor displays 10-bit color* which is more than 1 billion colors shown simultaneously. This is 64 times greater than the 16.7 million colors of 8-bit display.

Brightness and Color Uniformity with DUE

Fluctuations in brightness and chroma on different parts of the screen are characteristic of LCD panels. Generally, the larger the screen, the more noticeable these uniformity errors become. EIZO’s Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) helps to compensate for these errors, resulting in a much more uniform image.
