EIZO ColorEdge CG2420 24″ Color Management LCD Monitor
Let your imagination soar with this professional-level model for use in photography, design, print, and post production. It features a built-in self calibration sensor for hassle-free monitor maintenance, vivid colors reproduced to industry standards, and exceptionally high contrast for producing true blacks.
Built-In Sensor to Automate Your Workflow
The automated screen calibration sensor is located in the front bezel and swings onto the screen only when calibrating, eliminating the need for a third-party calibration device. It can also be used when the monitor is set up in portrait mode.
ColorNavigator 7 Color Management Software
ColorNavigator 7 is the latest calibration and quality control software for ColorEdge color management monitors. It combines all the features of EIZO’s previous color management software, ColorNavigator 6 and ColorNavigator NX, to create a new and improved solution for creatives in a range of fields. The proprietary software makes calibration simple and produces predictable results for photography, design, print, and video creation.
Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards
The wide color gamut of the ColorEdge CG2420 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
The ColorEdge CG2420 takes roughly three minutes in oUsing the DisplayPort or HDMI inputs, the ColorEdge CG2420 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.
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 most appropriate tones and achieve the desired value. This ensures the smoothest color gradations in your images.
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.
Uniformity Across the Screen
LCD monitors commonly exhibit fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity across the screen, affecting color accuracy. To counter this, ColorEdge monitors are equipped with EIZO’s patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology which corrects deviations in every tone across the screen to ensure stable display.
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 CG2420 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.
I/P Conversion for Flicker-Free Display
The HDMI input of the ColorEdge CG2420 supports I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion for converting the interlace signals from TV and video into progressive signals for flicker-free display.
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.
Zero Bright Pixels
EIZO guarantees its ColorEdge monitors will be free from bright sub-pixels for six months from the date of purchase.
Brightness and Color Warranty
The brightness and color of the ColorEdge CG2420 is warranted for up to 10,000 hours from the date of purchase. When used at a color temperature of 5000 – 6500K, a brightness level of at least 120 cd/m2 is warranted.
Certified for Quality and Performance
The monitor is recognized by Fogra as a Class A FograCert Softproof Monitor. Using it in a FograCert Softproofing System ensures designers, print specifiers, and print producers can rely on the soft proof for predictable and consistent results.
