Simple and Precise Color Management

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. ColorNavigator 6 is compatible with a wide range of measurement devices from X-Rite, DataColor, and other manufacturers.

Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards

color reproduction areaThe 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.
