Eizo ColorEdge CG277 and CX271

Eizo ColorEdge CG277 and CX271

Hakusan, Japan, February 26, 2014 – EIZO Corporation (TSE: 6737) today released the 27-inch ColorEdge CG277 and CX271 color management monitors.

ColorEdge CG277 / CX271The ColorEdge CG277 is targeted at professionals in digital photography, prepress, video editing, post production, and other fields that require the most predictable color in their workflow. It features a sensor that is housed inside the monitor and swings up onto the screen for self-calibration. The ColorEdge CX271 is ideal for professionals and prosumers in photography and design. It houses an internal correction sensor that maintains the calibration results after the monitor has been calibrated with an external sensor.

The ColorEdge CG277 and CX271 include the advanced features of previous 27-inch ColorEdge monitors while offering a new wide-gamut IPS (in-plane switching) panel that reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. In addition, dark tones retain their depth, even when the screen is viewed at an angle in a dimly lit photographic or post production studio. An LED backlight reduces power consumption by 40% and utilizes brightness modulation technology to minimize flickering and eye fatigue.

During the development of the ColorEdge CG277, photographer Carl De Keyzer of Magnum Photos, tested the monitor and commented, “The calibration system is astonishing – for the first time I can calibrate my screen without professional help. The colors are entirely in line with what comes out of my large printers, so no guessing anymore; just true what you see is what you get.”

For brightness and color uniformity, EIZO uses its own Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) technology. DUE ensures a Delta-E difference of three or less across the screen. It also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating ambient temperature may have on color temperature and brightness.

EIZO’s proprietary ColorNavigator calibration software comes bundled with both monitors. ColorNavigator is used for setting the target values for brightness, gamma, and white point, and generating an ICC profile. ColorNavigator has a scheduling function that activates the self-calibration and self-correction functions of the ColorEdge CG277 and CX271 respectively. The software offers several advanced functions such as emulating the color characteristics of smart phones, tablets, and other devices, and profile validation for verifying calibration results.

For video editing and post production, the ColorEdge CG277 has a 3D LUT (look-up table) that adjusts color individually on an RGB cubic table. With ColorNavigator software’s emulation function, the 3D LUT applies a film look to the image so creators can preview how the image will be seen by their audience. The ColorEdge CG277 comes with several media-standard preset color modes: Rec709, EBU, SMPTE-C, and DCI. It also accepts 4K x 2K signals and downscales them to its native resolution of 2560 x 1440.

The ColorEdge CG277 is recognized by Fogra as a Class A FograCert Softproof Monitor. Using the CG277 in a FograCert Softproofing System ensures designers, print specifiers, and print producers can rely on the soft proof for predictable and consistent results.

UK - March 2014: Colour Engine is set to attend Ipex 2014. Supporting four global brands across two stands, the company will demonstrate an exciting product portfolio of colour management software and tools.

With the release of Alwan Color Suite v5 to support two new standards ISO15339 and ISO 17972-4, the Colour Engine team will demonstrate the advantages of an extended colour gamut. The accurate reproduction of a client’s brand is crucial to everyone in the printing supply chain and this mix of standards and solutions will allow print buyers and printers to define and assess aims and tolerances for the printing of both process and spot colours.
Also on the Alwan stand and a first at Ipex 2014, Colour Engine will reveal a new Digital Information product line for the press room. This Swiss built technology can breathe new life into any press and with 95% of all sheetfed and heatset web presses supported, offers a fast ROI based on shorter make-readies and paper and ink savings.
On stand N2 D210 Colour Engine will demonstrate the increasingly popular Remote Director v6 software delivering colour accurate monitor based proofs. They will also show D50 Lighting and reveal key secrets on how to maintain uniformity of light distribution and ensure UV emissions meet ISO 3664:2009 criteria.

We are looking forward to sharing our expertise and demonstrating the latest colour management tools to brands, agencies, publishers and all types of printing companies. We will be at the show to offer advice on our new and exciting products and also to offer fresh insights into technologies that may have been around for some time. We believe that it is fundamental to look at each customer’s requirement individually and talk through the selection of colour management software and tools available and the appropriate strategy of adoption to suit their business model.”
Businesses looking for colour management controls and solutions are sure to find answers to their questions from Colour Engine. Mark Anderton and Malcolm Mackenzie both extend a personal invitation to meet you at Ipex 2014.
