Image and colour accuracy

There are many things that go into creating a high-precision/high-contrast, bright and crisp screen. We constantly refine our monitor technology, use only high-end materials and carefully calibrate every single monitor during production. As a result of these efforts, you can always rely on excellent image reproduction.

Fogra Softproof Certification CG247X
Suitable for softproofing

The EIZO CG247X fulfills strict softproof requirements based on the ISO/CD 12646 standard. Fogra Forschungsgesellschaft Druck e.V. came to that conclusion in the course of testing the monitor. The CG247X was therefore awarded the Fogra "FograCert Softproof Monitor" seal of quality. You will therefore be working on a tested, colour-proof monitor.

Outstandingly sharp image quality

The screen has an impressive top resolution (1920 x 1200), a very good contrast ratio of 1500:1 and a brightness of 400 cd/m². For example, you can edit graphics and images down to the pixel. As an added benefit, text contours are clear and precise. The LCD panel with the IPS (Wide Gamut) panel allows for a viewing angle of 178 degrees. Ensuring that hue and contrast remain stable for the viewer.

IPS Panel
Wide Gamut
Wide gamut – vivid colours in line with industry standards

The wide-gamut monitor reliably reproduces 98% of the DCI P3 standard used in digital cinema and also supports the Rec. 2020 standard.

The CG247X also covers 99% of the Adobe RGB gamut. When images recorded in RAW format are converted to AdobeRGB, the monitor reproduces these with absolute colour fidelity. The EIZO monitor also offers great advantages for printing: It covers almost the entire CMYK gamut (ISO coated and U.S. Web Coated, for example). You see the later print result on screen and save yourself the proof stage.

True Black
True Black: Colour depth for plastic images

Dark tones often appear faint or washed-out on LCD screens. True Black improves the contrast ratio and dark tones appear deeper – particularly when looking at the monitor from the side.

Integrated sensor for self-calibration

An integrated calibration sensor ensures you achieve maximum colour accuracy. The sensor is perfectly aligned to the monitor, takes environmental influences such as light into account, and correlates the centre of the image with the edge of the image. This ensures an even result over the whole monitor.

The sensor is located in the bezel and is only extended when performing measurements. This means that no external calibration device is necessary, and the colour fidelity of the monitor is optimal at all times.

The CG247X is equipped with the latest sensor technology that enables recalibration during normal operation, allowing you to continue working with non-colour-critical applications while the monitor is calibrating. During calibration, the sensor only takes up a small area of the screen and does not present an obstacle. Calibration can also be performed fully automatically at definable times.

Calibration
ColorNavigator
Colour Mode selection varies by model.
EIZO software for fast calibration and printing

Good image processing is only possible on well-calibrated monitors. The usual software calibration takes a long time and requires the user to have a certain level of technical expertise. The CG247X is supplied with ColorNavigator hardware calibration software. With ColorNavigator, you can perform calibration quickly, easily, and with excellent colour precision: During calibration, the software directly accesses and saves to the look-up-table in the monitor hardware. You determine the relevant components such as white balance, gamma, brightness, and tone value curve according to your requirements. Calibration then runs automatically based on the default set during production and is therefore unique in terms of precision and speed. This also means that calibration can be performed by users in just a few steps, with no need for in-depth technical knowledge. Because the calibration takes place via the monitor hardware, it is performed without loss and independently of the computer and graphics board. The CG247X can also be smoothly integrated into an existing system. 

More information on the EIZO ColorNavigator

The free Quick Color Match software helps users, even without in-depth expertise in colour management, to see on the monitor how their images will look when printed on their Canon or Epson inkjet printer at home. In this way, the images can be optimised for the special properties of the selected photo paper even before printing, which helps users avoid expensive misprints.

Smooth and fluid transitions and gradients thanks to 16-bit LUT and 10-bit mode

Thanks to the 10 bit colour display based on a 16 bit LUT, you can utilize a huge colour spectrum. This is made possible by the rapid DisplayPort and HDMI connections in combination with the frame rate control. A billion colours at your fingertips simultaneously. That is 64 times more colours than with an 8 bit display. The colour gradations are finer and the colour differences between adjacent colours are smaller. The enhanced greyscale range is equally important for post-production. With the 10 bit greyscale range activated, between 6% and 14% more grayscales are visible.

Calibration Out of the Box
Ready to use right out of the box – perfect settings right from the factory

Every ColorEdge CG247X is individually measured and optimally configured in the factory, enabling it to be used immediately after it has been unboxed. To this end, the gamma curves for the red, green and blue channels are closely checked and corrected, if necessary. This unique EIZO factory calibration enables the user to start using the monitor with the preset gamut range right out of the box. This painstaking calibration at the factory ensures that the user can quickly recalibrate the monitor if needed using ColorNavigator.

Digital Uniformity Equalizer – perfect rendering across the entire screen

Each individual monitor panel is precisely measured over the entire surface at the EIZO factory. Any inhomogeneities in brightness and unnecessary colour are detected and removed. This process (Digital Uniformity Equalizer) guarantees that identical colours always look the same over the entire service life of the monitor, no matter where they are displayed. Only in this way is precise image processing and retouching possible.

Stable brightness, no colour deviation

The alpha and omega for exact image editing: constant brightness and colour temperature. Patented electronics balance out brightness fluctuations that may arise due to extended periods of use and increased environmental and operating temperature. Thanks to a built-in thermometer, colour deviations caused by fluctuations in room temperature are eliminated and automatically reduced. The colour rendering remains absolutely constant over a long period of use, right from the start: because the warm-up time until brightness, colour, and tone values have completely stabilized is just three minutes.

EIZO Microchip
EIZO microchip for optimised colour reproduction

The CG247X has a high-quality microchip (ASIC, Application-Specific Integrated Circuit), which EIZO developed especially for the special requirements involved in work demanding high colour accuracy. This microchip is the brain of a ColorEdge as it guarantees the precise, uniform and constant image display that is the hallmark of EIZO.

Features for video and film production

The CG247X is optimised to handle the special requirements of video post-production. The extremely high-performance built-in sensor also makes it possible to validate calibration results, while the 3D LUT guarantees exceptional precision.

Precise colour rendering thanks to high-resolution 3D look-up table

The 3D LUT provides for the most precise tone value allocation possible and extremely exact colour tone rendering, which is shown amongst other things in the grey scale. Brightness levels in relation to the image signal vary from module to module in LCDs and the colour mixture (addition) of red, green, and blue also varies. This can be exactly determined and controlled only with the aid of specific measuring devices. EIZO therefore configures all of its monitors in the CG series and its colours and tone value curve in the factory. This results in a consistent colour temperature over the entire grey scale. The result: The colour reproduction is equal, precise, and reliable across each individual CG247X monitor.

The 3D look-up table also has the following benefits when working with films: Thanks to the ColorNavigation software included, you can emulate the colours of film material. This means you can see how the image will look when it is played. The 3D LUT also improves the additive mixture of colour in the monitor (mixture of red, green, and blue). This is a key factor for displaying neutral grey tones correctly.

3D LUT
Safe Area Marker
Safely in sight thanks to the safe area marker

Ideal for captions and critical images: Thanks to the safe area marker, you will know which area of the screen is displayed on another output device. You will therefore see immediately whether subtitles, text, or other important image elements are in the visible area. So that the marker can be clearly seen in all images, you can change the marker colour.

Ideal for video and film production: HDMI

Films are normally recorded at 24 fps. They therefore appear unnatural with the conventional monitor rendering of 60 fps. The monitor supports an image frequency of 24 fps. This means that you can view and edit your film material as it was taken. 

HDMI signals with refresh rates of 60, 50, 30, 25 and 24 Hz are supported, ensuring you can view and edit your film material in the same format in which it was recorded.  The monitor also features I/P conversion.

Variety of ports

A growing number of creative professionals are using their portable computers not just while they are on the go. A powerful laptop is often their only computer, which is why more and more of them want to integrate their portable computer into their office at home or at work. EIZO is addressing this trend with the new ColorEdge graphics monitors.

Monitor ports

It doesn't get easier than this: You can connect most of your devices, such as PC, laptop or cameras directly to the monitor because the monitor hasa number of different ports. That makes your daily work easier.

Ports
KVM Switch
KVM switch: two PCs, one user

It's never been easier to operate two PCs with a single mouse and keyboard. With two USB upstream ports (USB-C and USB-B), the ColorEdge CG247X has a built-in KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) switch. The monitor automatically links the mouse and keyboard to the currently active source computer. This means, for example, that a desktop PC and a laptop or a work and home PC can be operated on the same combination of monitor, mouse and keyboard. Switching is then done conveniently with the sensor key on the front of the monitor. This ensures uninterrupted work and a tidy workspace.

Ergonomics

ColorEdge monitors bring ergonomics to computer workstations. In addition to alleviating eye and back strain, the monitors also meet the user’s unique requirements. This is because we do not believe that you should have to adjust to your workstation – your workstation should adapt to your needs.

Work without screen flicker – your eyes will thank you for it

Many monitors flicker imperceptibly. This flickering is not consciously perceived, but it causes the eyes to tire more quickly. That is why EIZO attaches great importance to flicker-free monitors. This is great for users, as their eyes will not tire as quickly, allowing them to work in front of the screen for longer periods of time without fatigue.

Anti Glare
Modern antireflection technology

Nothing is more distracting than dazzling reflections on the monitor. That is why all EIZO monitors use modern antireflection technology. This does not just protect your eyes from excessive strain, but also saves you from having to assume uncomfortable positions while sitting in front of your monitor.

Stand – ergonomic and stable

Our screens offer continuous height adjustment. Depending on the model, they can even be lowered to the base plate of the stand. This guarantees the best possible ergonomics, regardless of whether the user is sitting or standing in front of the screen. You can also swivel, rotate and tilt the monitor base to the position that is most comfortable for your posture.

The CG247X can also be rotated into the portrait format, which is a great advantage for tethered shoots of people in the portrait mode, for example.

Hood
Protection against glare thanks to the monitor hood

The monitor hood reduces reflection and brightness on the screen and helps protect your eyes. It is easy to attach and reduces the amount of light that hits the screen from above and from the sides.

Sustainability

EIZO considers longevity, sustainability and environmental friendliness to be main components of product quality. That is why our monitors are produced in accordance with international environmental regulations and reduce resource consumption thanks to the long service life they offer. EIZO uses the CG247X to showcase how image and product quality go hand in hand with responsible planning, material procurement and production. This intrinsic value enables you to make a safe investment in a modern and reliable monitor.
