EIZO ColorEdge CG2700X 27″ 4K HDR Color Management Monitor
The EIZO ColorEdge CG2700X 27″ 4K HDR Color Management Monitor marks a new generation of ColorEdge with a new exterior design. With 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, 500 cd/m2 high brightness, and HDR gamma support, the monitor reproduces content in remarkable detail. USB Type-C connectivity provides a streamlined experience so professionals in video editing, game development, photography, and more can focus on creating.
The ColorEdge CG2700X is one of the flagship models for the latest generation of ColorEdge color management monitors. It features HDR gamma support, USB Type-C connectivity, a built-in calibration sensor, and a new cabinet design.
4K UHD Resolution
The ColorEdge CG2700X displays at 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, which is four times the size of Full HD. This level of detail ensures that high resolution content is displayed crisply. The 27″ screen provides ample space for displaying 4K content natively or Full HD content in full with enough space to show toolbars, palettes, and other windows or applications. This makes the monitor versatile for video editing, 3DCG creation, game development, photography, and other creative fields.
Single Cable Connection with USB-C
The ColorEdge CG2700X features USB-C connectivity that allows you to display video, transmit USB signals, and supply power to a connected device, such as a tablet or notebook computer. This convenient multi-purpose connectivity makes it faster and easier to connect when moving between workstations or working remotely.
The ColorEdge CG2700X reliably charges a MacBook Pro or other high-end laptops with 94W power delivery. This eliminates the need for a laptop’s bulky power supply unit, freeing up space in your bag and on the desk.
Stable Network Connection
While many modern laptops are not equipped with a dedicated LAN port, the monitor has one directly built in for a stable wired connection. Connecting a laptop via USB-C provides access to the network through the monitor for sharing creative assets and files, carrying out post-production work remotely, and enables network-based color management via ColorNavigator Network.
Built-In Sensor to Automate Your Workflow
ColorEdge were the first monitors in the world to have a built-in calibration sensor for color critical applications. The ColorEdge CG2700X’s built-in sensor can be set to calibrate the monitor automatically at designated times. This eliminates the need for a third-party calibration device and ensures your screen stays color-accurate. In addition, the sensor swings onto the screen, taking up minimal space and allowing you to continue working even during calibration.
Vivid Colors Reproduced to Industry Standards
The monitor’s wide color gamut faithfully reproduces 98% of the DCI-P3 standard used in digital cinema and supports the BT.2020 standard used in broadcasting. In addition, it covers 99% of the Adobe RGB color space so images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. It also covers almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK color spaces used in printing.
3D LUT for Accurate Color Display
The monitor uses a 3D LUT which adjusts colors individually on an RGB cubic table. With the supported ColorNavigator 7 software’s emulation function, creators can check how content will appear to their audience. The 3D LUT also improves the monitor’s additive color mixture (combination of RGB), which is a key factor in its ability to display neutral gray tones.
10-Bit Simultaneous Display
Using the DisplayPort or HDMI input, the ColorEdge monitor 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.
Broadcast and Cinema Presets
Preset modes for DCI-P3, BT.709, and BT.2020 ensure you can work in the appropriate color spaces and gamma values. In addition, preset modes for PQ (DCI and BT.2100) and HLG (BT.2100) are available for viewing HDR content. With the built-in calibration sensor, you can conveniently adjust or maintain the brightness setting for each preset.
HDR Gamma Support
The ColorEdge CG2700X features a high brightness level of 500 cd/m2. It supports HLG (hybrid log-gamma) and the PQ (perceptual quantization) curve for displaying and editing HDR (high dynamic range) video content. The optimized gamma curves render images to appear more true to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR (standard dynamic range). This ensures professional creators can reliably display HDR content for editing and color grading.
True Black Display
In compliance with the DCI standard, the monitor offers a high contrast ratio of 1450:1* for producing true blacks that are otherwise difficult to display on a typical LCD monitor. CG Series monitors are also equipped with a retardation film which allows tones to retain their depth even when viewed from an angle.
The monitor includes a function that shows the areas of the image that cannot be displayed correctly at the current brightness settings. These areas are marked in yellow or magenta and can be viewed for brightness levels of 300, 500, 1000, and 4000 cd/m2.
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.
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 CG2700X 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.
Stable Display Using Industry-First AI
The color and brightness of an LCD monitor can shift due to changes in ambient temperature and the temperature of the monitor itself. ColorEdge CG Series monitors are equipped with a temperature sensor for accurately measuring the temperature inside the monitor, as well as estimating the temperature of the surrounding environment. With this temperature sensing and estimation technology, the monitor adjusts in real-time so gradations, color, brightness, and other characteristics continue to be displayed accurately. Furthermore, EIZO uses AI (artificial intelligence)* in the estimation algorithm of the CG2700X so it can distinguish between various temperature changing patterns to calculate even more accurate correction.
Light Shielding Hood
The ColorEdge CG2700X comes bundled with a light shielding hood that effectively prevents glare on the screen caused by ambient lighting. The hood is newly designed to be lightweight and easily attaches to the monitor magnetically without needing to connect separate parts.
In addition to USB Type-C, the monitor is equipped with DisplayPort and HDMI inputs. It also includes four USB ports (USB 5Gbps: Type A x 2, USB 2.0: Type-A x 2) for connecting additional devices or peripherals.
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 CG2700X 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.
