Easy Screen-to-Print Color Matching
Quick Color Match Software
Even with all the right equipment, color matching can be a tedious process - from monitor adjustment to determining the best retouch software and printer settings - achieving an accurate print takes a great deal of time. Quick Color Match greatly simplifies the process by automatically adjusting to the ideal monitor, retouching software, and printer settings so you can focus on editing your photos and print your work quickly and hassle-free. Simply drag and drop your photo in the Quick Color Match window to automatically start the process.
To further increase matching precision, ColorNavigator 6 is EIZO's own color management software for producing predictable color results. It allows you to carry out calibration and manage advanced user-desired target values.
Features for Creative Work
Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards
The wide color gamut of the ColorEdge CS2420 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 CS2420 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.
*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.
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 monitor is equipped with EIZO's patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology to ensure stable image display and 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.
Sleek, User-Friendly Design
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 CS2420 supports I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion for converting the interlace signals from TV and video into progressive signals for flicker-free display.
Optional Light-Shielding Hood
An optional shading hood is available that effectively prevents glare on the monitor's screen caused by ambient lighting. The 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.
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.
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.
*Usage time is limited to 30,000 hours.
EIZO guarantees its ColorEdge monitors will be free from bright sub-pixels for six months from the date of purchase.
