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.

ColorNavigator 6 Color Management Software  

To properly manage color in your work, it is necessary to ensure your monitor maintains consistent settings. The bundled ColorNavigator 6 software allows you to easily carry out calibration. Simply select the desired preset or assign values for brightness, white point, and gamma. The built-in sensor directly utilizes the monitor's look-up-table and creates an ICC profile within minutes.

ColorNavigator NX Quality Control Software 

The ColorEdge CG2730 supports ColorNavigator NX quality control (QC) software. It offers asset management of client ColorEdge monitors and covers calibration, built-in sensor correlation, and color mode settings. With ColorNavigator NX, calibration information is saved to the monitor instead of the PC's operating system so you do not have to recalibrate if connecting to more than one PC. The software is most effectively used with EIZO's ColorNavigator Network solution.

Features for Creative Work

Ample Screen Size for Creative Work

The spacious 27-inch screen of the ColorEdge CG2730 has a native resolution of 2560 x 1440, which offers a pixel count of double that of 1280 x 1024 and 60% more than 1920 x 1200 resolutions. This gives creatives ample space to work with images, tool palettes, and other windows.

Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards

color gumatthe ColorEdge CG2730 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. The ColorEdge CG2730 also reproduces 98% of the DCI-P3 color space used in post production.

 

 

 

 

 

10-bit Simultaneous Display

Using the DisplayPort or HDMI inputs, the ColorEdge CG2730 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.

8-bit and 10-bit image 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 256 most appropriate tones and achieve the desired value. This ensures the smoothest color gradations in your images.

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 CG2730 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 from Corner to Corner

Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity on different parts of the screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. To counteract this, the ColorEdge CG2730 is equipped with EIZO's patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology to ensure a Delta-E difference of 3 or less across the screen. DUE also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating temperature may have on color temperature and brightness for stable image display. 

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.

wide vieing angles

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 ColorEdge CG2730 features a sleek new cabinet design so you can focus more on the screen. The bottom bezel is approximately 46% slimmer and monitor depth is approximately 30% 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. The monitor is also 30% lighter than its predecessor, weighing just 8.9 kg, making it even easier to carry.

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 

non glareMinimized 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.

 

 

ip conversion 4I/P Conversion for Flicker-Free Display

The HDMI input of the ColorEdge CG2730 supports I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion for converting the interlace signals from TV and video into progressive signals for flicker-free display.

 

hood.gifLight-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 CG2730'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. The stand is also equipped with a quick release that allows you to easily remove the screen from the stand with one touch.

Multiple Inputs 

DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D inputs are included and support various types of graphics boards. The HDMI input also offers direct connection with digital cameras. Two USB upstream ports allow two computers to be connected at once so it is not necessary to reconnect the USB cable when using the ColorNavigator 6 software and switching between computers.

Best Photo Display 2017-2018

"The EIZO ColorEdge CG2730 fulfills the needs of a professional photographer. With a screen size of 27 inches and a high resolution, it can show an image at A3 size and still leave ample space for the adjustment palettes of your software. The picture quality is outstanding with a high contrast ratio (1500:1), the ability to reproduce deep blacks, and marvelous colors that cover 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. The most innovative feature is its easy-to-use built-in calibration sensor, which swings onto the screen when calibrating and allows different profiles to be saved, eliminating the need for third-party devices. Furthermore, the display comes with a shading hood."
