ColorEdge Common Features

Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards

The wide color gamut of ColorEdge monitors reproduces almost the entire Adobe® RGB color space so images shot in Adobe® RGB will be displayed correctly. Photos of vibrant blue skies and lush green forests are reproduced faithfully in a way that monitors limited to an sRGB color space cannot display. The wide color gamut also ensures reproduction of almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK color spaces used in printing.

10-Bit Simultaneous Display

With 10-bit simultaneous color display from a 16-bit LUT (24-bit for CG319X and CG3146) which means they can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This is 64 times more colors than you get with 8-bit display, resulting in smooth color gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors.

Adjusted at the Factory for Smooth Color Gradations

The gamma level for each ColorEdge monitor is adjusted at the factory by measuring the R, G, and B gamma values from 0 - 255, then using the monitor's 16-bit LUT (24-bit for CG319X and CG3146) to select the 256 most appropriate tones and achieve the desired value. This ensures the smoothest color gradations in your images.

Uniformity Across the Screen

LCD monitors commonly exhibit fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity across the screen, affecting color accuracy. To counter this, ColorEdge monitors are equipped with EIZO's patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology which corrects deviations in every tone across the screen to ensure stable display.

Wide Viewing Angles with IPS Panels

The 178° wide viewing angles afforded by the IPS panel technology allows two or more people to view the screen at once with little change in color or contrast.

Ergonomic Stand for Comfort and Convenience

Adjust the screen to the most comfortable angle and reposition it to show your work to a colleague or client. The monitors come with a versatile stand that offer height, tilt, and swivel adjustments as well as portrait display.

Commitment to Quality

  • 5-Year Manufacturer's Warranty
    ColorEdge monitors are backed by a manufacturer's 5-year warranty that covers all components including the LCD panel. EIZO manufactures its products at its own factories to allow close control over production quality and ensure each monitor is built to last.

  • Brightness and Color Warranty
    The brightness and color of the CG Series is warranted for up to 10,000 hours from the date of purchase.

  • Zero Bright Pixels
    EIZO guarantees its ColorEdge monitors will be free from bright sub-pixels for six months from the date of purchase.

ColorEdge CG Series Features

Built-In Sensors to Automate Your Workflow

CG Series monitors are equipped with a built-in sensor which can be set to calibrate the monitor automatically at designated times. This eliminates the need for a third-party calibration device and ensures your screen stays color-accurate. In addition, the CG279X and CG319X feature the latest sensor technology, which allows you to continue using the monitor even during recalibration. The sensor swings onto the screen, taking up minimal space, so your work remains uninterrupted.

Stable Display Technology for Unrivaled Quality

The color and brightness of an LCD monitor an be affected by changes in ambient temperature and the temperature of the monitor itself. ColorEdge monitors are equipped with a temperature sensor for accurately measuring the temperature inside the monitor, as well as estimating the temperature of the surrounding environment. With this temperature sensing and estimation technology, the monitor adjusts in real-time so gradations, color, brightness, and other characteristics continue to be displayed accurately. Furthermore, EIZO uses AI (artificial intelligence) in the estimation algorithm of the ColorEdge CG3146, CG319X, and CG279X so they can distinguish between various temperature changing patterns to calculate even more accurate correction.

Stable Color in Just 3 Minutes

A typical monitor takes 30 minutes or more for its brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilize. The CG Series takes a mere 3 minutes. Whether you are working in a studio or taking the monitor with you on location, you get reliable color display soon after turning the monitor on.

Light-Shielding Hood

The CG Series comes bundled with a light-shielding that effectively prevents glare on the monitor’s screen caused by ambient lighting. The hoods attach to the monitor magnetically, allowing users to attach the hood quickly and easily without needing to connect separate parts.

Film Emulation with 3D LUT

ColorNavigator 7 can create emulation data from the 3D LUT of the video content used in the color grading system for matching the look of the film on the monitor.

4K Resolution for Exceptional Detail

The CG319X and CG3146 display the DCI 4K standard (4096 x 2160) which is more than four times that of full HD (1920 x 1080). They are ideal for creating, editing, and referencing with 2D and 3D CGI, VFX, compositing, and color grading.

DCI 4K at 60 Hz with a Single Cable

The CG3146 and CG319X support the DCI 4K resolution at 60 Hz with the DisplayPort or HDMI input.

Certified for Quality and Performance

ColorEdge monitors have obtained TÜV Rheinland's Color Accuracy (Quick Stability grade) certification. Color Accuracy is the first quality and performance criterion to measure the color accuracy of display devices for multiple graphics fields such as photography, post production, design, and printing.

CG Series monitors are also recognized by Fogra as Class A FograCert Softproof Monitors. Using them in a FograCert Softproofing System ensures designers, print specifiers, and print producers can rely on the softproof for predictable and consistent results. In addition the CG247X is the first monitor to receive Idealliance's display-based soft proofing certification which confirms that the color stability, tone uniformity, and angular viewing consistency meets global industry standards for high quality proofs.
