The ColorEdge CG279X 27" 16:9 Hardware Calibration HDR IPS Monitor from EIZO is a professional display with built-in color management hardware and software for HDR video editing and color-accurate photo editing. It supports the HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and PQ (Perceptual Quantization) gamma curves for editing HDR video, as well as a wide color gamut for displaying images. The ColorEdge CG279X also has an integrated color calibration sensor and uses Stable Display technology to measure internal and ambient temperatures so it may adjust gradations, color, and brightness in real time.
EIZO designed the ColorEdge CG279X with an anti-glare panel, a native resolution of 2560 x 1440, In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colors, a 16-bit LUT, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1300:1, 350 cd/m2 brightness, 109 pixels per inch, and a 13 ms (GtG) response time. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. This display has one HDMI input, one DisplayPort 1.2 input, and one DVI-D input. There is also a USB Type-C port that supports DP alt mode, data transfers of up to 5 Gb/s using the USB 3.1 Gen 1 standard, and up to 15W of power for device charging. Additional USB ports include one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-B input, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A outputs with 0.9A of charging power, and two USB 2.0 Type-A outputs with 0.5A of charging power.
The CG279X has been engineered to support 99% of the Adobe RGB and 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamuts. Once turned on, its colors stabilize in around 3 minutes. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, it features a vertical tilt of -5 to 35°, a left/right swivel of 344° (±172°), a clockwise rotation of 90°, and a height adjustment of 6.1".
Built-In Sensor to Automate Your Workflow
The ColorEdge CG279X is 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 monitor features sensor technology that allows you to continue using it even during recalibration. The sensor swings onto the screen, taking up minimal space, so your work remains uninterrupted.
ColorNavigator 7 Color Management Software
ColorNavigator 7 is calibration and quality control software for ColorEdge color management monitors. It combines all the features of EIZO's previous color management software, ColorNavigator 6 and ColorNavigator NX, to create an improved solution for creatives in a range of fields. The proprietary software makes calibration simple and produces predictable results for photography, design, print, and video creation.
ColorNavigator Network Color Management Software
ColorNavigator Network provides centralized quality control of ColorEdge monitors that have ColorNavigator 7 or NX installed. Administrators can set color modes, schedule self-calibration, register or adjust asset management settings, and other tasks whether the monitors are local or remote. ColorNavigator Network is hosted on a secure cloud server to free you from the initial investment and running costs of providing your own server.
HDR Gamma Support
The ColorEdge CG279X is equipped with HLG (Gybrid Log Gamma) and the PQ (Perceptual Quantization) curve for displaying and editing HDR (high dynamic range) video content. The optimized gamma curves render images to appear truer to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR (standard dynamic range). This ensures professional creators can reliably display HDR content for editing and color grading.
Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards
This wide-gamut monitor faithfully reproduces 98% of the DCI-P3 standard used in digital cinema and supports the BT.2020 standard used in broadcasting. In addition, it covers 99% of the Adobe RGB color space so images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. The wide color gamut also ensures reproduction of almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK color spaces used in printing.
True Black Display
In compliance with the DCI standard, the ColorEdge CG279X offers a high contrast ratio of 1300:1 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.
3D LUT for Accurate Color Display
A 3D LUT is included, which adjusts colors individually on an RGB cubic table. With the supported ColorNavigator 7 software's emulation function, creators can check how content will appear to their audience. The 3D LUT also improves the monitor's additive color mixture (combination of RGB), which is a key factor in its ability to display neutral gray tones.
10-Bit Simultaneous Display
With 10-bit simultaneous display from a 16-bit lookup table (LUT), the ColorEdge CG279X can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This results in smooth color gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors.
Broadcast and Cinema Presets
Preset modes for DCI-P3, BT.709, and BT.2020 ensure you can work in the appropriate color spaces and gamma values. In addition, preset modes for PQ (DCI and BT.2100) and HLG (BT.2100) are available for viewing HDR content. With the built-in calibration sensor, you can conveniently adjust or maintain the brightness setting for each preset.
Safe Area Marker
A safe area marker designates the area of the screen that will be displayed when the monitor is connected to a particular device. This allows you to check that subtitles and other text will be visible. The color of the marker is changeable to ensure it remains with any imagery.
Factory Calibrated 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 to 255, then using the monitor's 16-bit LUT to select the 256 most appropriate tones and achieve the desired value. This ensures smooth color gradations in your images.
Stable Display Technology for 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. Furthermore, EIZO uses AI (artificial intelligence) in the estimation algorithm of the CG279X so it 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 ColorEdge CG279X 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.
Uniformity Across the Screen
Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity on different parts of the screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. ColorEdge monitors are equipped with EIZO's patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology, which counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating temperature may have on color temperature and brightness for stable image display.
The ColorEdge CG279X features a sleek cabinet design so you can focus more on the screen. The bottom bezel is approximately 46% slimmer and monitor depth approximately 20% thinner compared to the previous model.
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.
Minimized Reflections with an Anti-Glare Panel
The monitor is equipped with an IPS anti-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 CG279X supports I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion for converting the interlace signals from TV and video into progressive signals for flicker-free display.
Wide Viewing Angles with IPS Panel
The 178° wide viewing angles afforded by IPS panel technology allow two or more people to view the screen at once with little change in color or contrast.
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 CG279X's shading hood 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. The stand is also equipped with a quick release that allows you to easily remove the screen from the stand with a single touch.
Multiple Inputs Including USB Type-C Connectivity
The ColorEdge CG279X features USB Type-C connectivity for easily connections to your host system with a single single cable. It is also equipped with a USB Type-B and four USB Type-A ports, as well as DVI-D, HDMI, and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs.
