Simple and Precise Color Management

Built-In Sensor to Automate Your Workflow

Automate your calibration with the sensor that is housed within the front bezel. The sensor swings onto the screen only when calibrating, eliminating the need for a third-party calibration device. It even operates while the monitor is in portrait mode.

Features for Creative Work

Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards

color reproduction area

The wide color gamut of the ColorEdge CG2420 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

Using the DisplayPort or HDMI inputs, the ColorEdge CG2420 offers 10-bit simultaneous display* from a 16-bit look-up-table (LUT) which means it 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.

10-Bit Simultaneous Display

*A graphics board and software which support 10-bit output are also necessary for 10-bit display. Equipment that supports Deep Color is necessary with the HDMI inputs.    

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 look-up-table (LUT) to select the most appropriate tones and achieve the desired value. This ensures the smoothest color gradations in your images.

Stable Display Technology for Unrivaled ColorEdge Quality

Stable Display Technology for Unrivalled ColorEdge Quality

The color and brightness of an LCD monitor can shift due to 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.

Read more about image quality stabilization in our White Paper.

 

Stable Color in Just 3 Minutes

A typical monitor takes 30 minutes or more for its brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilize. The ColorEdge CG2420 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.

Stable Color in Just 3 Minutes

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.

Uniformity Across the Screen

Wide Viewing Angles with IPS Panel

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

Feature for Video Editing and Post Production

True Black Display

In compliance with the DCI standard, the ColorEdge CG2420 offers a high contrast ratio of 1500:1* for producing true blacks that are otherwise difficult to display on a typical LCD monitor. When viewing the screen from an angle in a dimly lit room, dark tones typically appear washed out due to the display characteristics of LCD backlights. The CG Series is equipped with a retardation film which allows tones to retain their depth even when viewed from an angle.

Sleek, User-Friendly Design

Slimmer Bezels

The slim cabinet features unobtrusive frames that are 39% slimmer than its predecessor’s so you can focus more on the screen.

Seamless Electrostatic Switches

The flat design uses electrostatic switches on the front bezel in place of traditional buttons for seamless access to monitor settings.

Built-in Carrying Handle

A carrying handle on the back of the monitor allows you to easily move it from one location to another.

Easy-Access USB Ports

The monitor is equipped with three easy-to-access USB 3.0 ports, including one port for battery charging devices such as a smartphone.

Features for Comfort and Ease-of-Use

Minimized Reflections with Non-Glare Panel

The monitor is equipped with an IPS non-glare panel for high visibility. It also uses dimming technology to minimize flicker and help prevent eye fatigue for a more comfortable working environment.

 

 

I/P Conversion for Flicker-Free Display

The HDMI input of the ColorEdge CG2420 supports I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion for converting the interlace signals from TV and video into progressive signals for flicker-free display.

 

Light-Shielding Hood

The CG Series comes bundled with a shading hood that effectively prevents glare on the monitor’s screen caused by ambient lighting. The ColorEdge CG2420’s shading hood is newly designed and attaches to the monitor magnetically. This allows the users to attach the hood quickly and easily without needing to connect separate parts.

 

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 monitor comes with a versatile stand that offers height, tilt, and swivel adjustments as well as portrait display.

Certified for Quality and Performance

The monitor has obtained TUV Reinland’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.
It is also recognized by Fogra as a Class A FograCert Softproof Monitor. Using it in a FograCert Softproofing System ensures designers, print specifiers, and print producers can rely on the soft proof for predictable and consistent results.
