Eizo Boosts ColorEdge Dark Tones

Focusing on colour, Eizo’s 24.1″ ColorEdge CG247X is designed for the media and entertainment industry. It replaces 2015’s CG247, with features for post production editing and video creation.

Colour gamut coverage has been expanded to 98% of DCI-P3, from 95% on the CG247, and 99% of Adobe RGB. Modes for EBU, Rec.709, SMPTE-C and DCI are pre-calibrated.

Fast start-up has been enabled. Eizo says that the display’s characteristics, such as brightness and tone, will stabilise after three minutes – compared to 30 minutes for a conventional monitor. Eizo has also used its digital uniformity equaliser, to ensure a Delta E difference of <3 across the display.

Contrast ratio has been increased to 1,500:1. In addition, Eizo has fitted a retardation film to increase viewing angles for dark tones.

A calibration sensor is installed on the front of the monitor. This can be used for automated self calibration, using the bundled ColorNavigator 6 software. The sensor can also be used to correlate the display with the measurement results of an external sensor.

Eizo supplies the CG247X with a light-shielding hood to block ambient light.

The anti-glare display uses an IPS panel, with 1920 x 1200 resolution; 178° viewing angles; and a 10ms (G2G) response time. Brightness is 400 cd/m² (120 cd/m² or less recommended for calibration).

DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D and USB (x2) inputs are featured. The HDMI input supports interlace/progressive conversion, to enable flicker-free display of TV and video signals.

The monitor can be tilted (0° – 30°), swivelled (344°) and pivoted (90°). It is also height adjustable (128mm).

Eizo is selling the CG247X now. Price is on application.
