ColorEdge CX270
27" (68 cm) Hardware Calibration LCD Monitor
More Pixels. Less maintenance.
The CX270 displays brilliant color across its impressive 27-inch, 3.7 megapixel screen. Maintaining this color is now simpler than ever with the new built-in SelfCorrection sensor which automatically adjusts color settings even when the monitor is turned off.

Built-in Correction Sensor Automatically Maintains Your Settings

Auto correction

The CX270 is equipped with a built-in correction sensor housed within the front upper bezel. This sensor records your adjustment results, and maintains the white point and brightness values by automatically readjusting the settings at specific intervals that you determine. Even if the monitor is switched off or not connected to a computer, it will stick to its preset schedule and self correct.

The built-in correction sensor works with both ColorNavigator and ColorNavigator Elements to automatically maintain your settings.

 

 

 

 

Stable Image Display Free from Environmental Influence

EIZO-Developed ASIC at the Core

 

All ColorEdge models come with an ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) developed by EIZO to meet the needs of the graphics market. The ASIC has its own algorithms used in high-precision color processing to produce smooth color tones.

Color That's Ready When You Are

From the time it is turned on it typically takes 30 minutes or longer for a monitor’s brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilize. EIZO has shortened this warm-up time by more than 75% to a mere 7 minutes. For confirming your work in a photo studio or taking your monitor with you on location, you can get to work right away.

DUEBrightness and Color Uniformity with DUE

Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity on different parts of the screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. EIZO's patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology compensates for these fluctuations to produce a more uniform image across the screen. And now DUE also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating ambient temperature may have on color temperature and brightness to ensure stable image display.
 

Predictable Color You Can Depend

Individually Adjusted at the Factory

The gamma level for each ColorEdge monitor is adjusted at the factory. This is accomplished 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 to achieve the desired value.

Reproduces Almost the Entire Adobe RGB Color Space

A wide color gamut reproduces 97% of the Adobe RGB color space so images shot in RAW can be converted to Adobe RGB or images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. The colors seen in photos of vibrant blue skies and lush green forests will be reproduced faithfully in a way that cannot be on monitors with an sRGB color space. The wide color gamut also ensures that the monitor reproduces almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK color spaces used in printing.

10-Bit Simultaneous Display

Using the DisplayPort input, the monitor offers 10-bit simultaneous color display* from a 16-bit look-up table which means it can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This is 64 times as many colors as you get with 8-bit display which results in even smoother 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.

IP conversionI/P Conversion

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

 

 

Color Management and Color Matching

ColorNavigator 6

The bundled ColorNavigator software makes calibration both simple and quick. Just input target 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. You can always download the latest version of ColorNavigator for free here on eizo.com.

Unify Color, Centralize Quality Control Management

ColorNavigator NX and ColorNavigator Network allow a single administrator to automate the quality control process of ColorEdge monitors across an entire studio or between multiple locations.

With ColorNavigator NX installed on workstations, an administrator can use ColorNavigator Network software to schedule self-calibration, set the color modes, activate key lock to prevent unintended changes to color settings (CG series), register or adjust asset management settings, and import/export monitor settings.

ColorNavigator Elements – Photo Color Matching Software

With this free software, you adjust your screen to color match your prints through visual perception. This is a simple color matching solution for entry-level users because no external sensor is required and the monitor automatically maintains its color settings with the built-in correction sensor.

In this guide, we go over how you can retouch and print digital photos on your own home inkjet printer and match the colors with monitor.

Comfort and Convenience

Multiple Inputs

DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D inputs are included for connecting to 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’s not necessary to reconnect the USB cable when using the ColorNavigator software and switching between the two computers.

Smooth Display of Video

For video editing or post production work, an overdrive circuit is included to reduce gray-to-gray response time to 6 ms and ensure that moving images look clean and sharp with a minimum of ghosting.

Adjustable Stand

Adjust the screen to the most comfortable angle for you 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 mode display.
Moving range

Preset Modes for Optimum Viewing

7 preset modes are included: Paper, Adobe RGB, sRGB, Calibration, and three user- adjustable modes. With the bundled ScreenManager for Pro (compatible with Windows OS only), you can assign a mode to an application so that mode will automatically be come active when you call up an application.

Preset modes

Optional Shading Hood for Portrait and Landscape Modes

Most shading hoods can only be used in landscape mode, but a unique hood that is designed for portrait mode as well is available as an option.

Commitment to Quality and the Environment

5-Year Warranty

The monitor is backed by a manufacturer’s 5-year warranty that covers all components including the LCD panel. EIZO can do this because it manufacturers its products at its own factories. This allows EIZO to keep close control over production quality and ensure that its monitors are built to last for 5 years.

5 Year Warranty

Zero Watts When Turned Off

When the monitor is turned off via the power button on its front bezel it consumes no electricity.
