Eizo Cares About Colour

Eizo’s newest 24.1″ ColorEdge monitors are the CG2420 and CS2420, featuring slim bezels (39% smaller than predecessors’), a carrying handle and Eizo’s own ColorNavigator 6 software.

ColorNavigator is intended for users requiring a variety of calibration functionality. Users can select preset target values for photography, printing and web design. Alternatively, they can set their own values for brightness, gamma and white point and generate an ICC profile.

As well as ColorNavigator 6, the CG2420 features ColorNavigator NX quality control software. It delivers asset management of client ColorEdge monitors and covers calibration, emulation, built-in sensor correlation and colour mode settings. Calibration information is saved to the monitor, rather than the PC’s operating system. The monitor also features a built-in front sensor for calibration.

Both monitors feature IPS panels with 1920 x 1200 resolution, and a 10-bit display with 16-bit LUT. They cover 99% Adobe RGB and, in the case of the CG2420, 98% of DCI-P3. Eizo provides a five-year warranty, which also covers the LCD panel, for both products.

Eizo boasts that the monitors show stable colour just three minutes after being turned on. They also use Eizo’s Digital Uniformity Equaliser technology, to enure a Delta E difference of <3.

The new ColorEdge monitors feature a non-glare display; a light shielding hood; and an ergonomic stand (-5° – 35° tilt; 344° swivel; 90° pivot; 150mm height adjustment). When using thee HDMI input, interlace signals from TV and video are converted into progressive signals for flicker-free viewing.

Viewing angles are 178°, and both displays have a recommended brightness for calibration of 120 cd/m² or less. The CG2420 reaches a maximum of 400 cd/m², with a 10ms response time and 1,500:1 contrast ratio. The CS2420 has 350 cd/m², 15ms and 1,000:1.

DisplayPort, HDMI, DVI-D, USB (x3) and USB-B ports are featured.

Eizo will begin to sell the monitors in the UK in May, but will officially launch them at The Photography Show (TPS) in March.
