Image and colour accuracy

There are many things that go into creating a high-precision/high-contrast, bright and crisp screen. We constantly refine our monitor technology, use only high-end materials and carefully calibrate every single monitor during production. As a result of these efforts, you can always rely on excellent image reproduction.

Outstandingly sharp image quality

The screen has an impressive top resolution (2560 x 1440), a very good contrast ratio of 1600:1 and a brightness of 400 cd/m². For example, you can edit graphics and images down to the pixel. As an added benefit, text contours are clear and precise. The LCD panel with the IPS (Wide Gamut) panel allows for a viewing angle of 178 degrees. Ensuring that hue and contrast remain stable for the viewer.

IPS Panel
Wide Gamut
Wide gamut colour space for saturated colours

To be able to use the entire colour spectrum of modern cameras, you need a monitor with the largest possible colour space. Only then is it possible to visually assess and edit the saturated hues contained in the file. That is why the IPS panel of the ColorEdge CG2700S covers, for example, the wide AdobeRGB photo gamut as well as the CMYK print gamut ISO-Coated V2 to more than 99 %. This means that the full colour spectrum of modern cameras is represented unaltered and without gaps. And a precise simulation of the print result in the softproof view is also guaranteed.

Smooth and fluid transitions and gradients thanks to 16-bit LUT and 10-bit mode

The LUT (look-up-table) on the CG2700S employs internal calculations with 16 bits for an extremely high colour depth and outputs the signals with up to 10 bits. This provides billions of hues for calculating the precise monitor display, effectively preventing display errors caused by the monitor such as banding or clipping, which can result in tonal breaks in gradients or unnecessary colours in greyscale. Even fine nuances and structures in dark or highly saturated areas of the image can be displayed in a differentiated and detailed manner.

True Black
True Black: Colour depth for plastic images

Dark tones often appear faint or washed-out on LCD screens. True Black improves the contrast ratio and dark tones appear deeper – particularly when looking at the monitor from the side.

Digital Uniformity Equalizer: perfect rendering across the entire screen

Each individual monitor panel is precisely measured over the entire surface at the EIZO factory. Any inhomogeneities in brightness and unnecessary colour are detected and removed. This process (Digital Uniformity Equalizer) guarantees that identical colours always look the same over the entire service life of the monitor, no matter where they are displayed. Only in this way is precise image processing and retouching possible.

Fogra Softproof Certification CG247X
Suitable for softproofing

The EIZO CG2700S fulfills strict softproof requirements based on the ISO 12646 standard. Fogra Forschungsgesellschaft Druck e.V. came to that conclusion in the course of testing the monitor. The CG2700S was therefore awarded the Fogra "FograCert Softproof Monitor" seal of quality. You will therefore be working on a tested, colour-proof monitor.

Integrated sensor for self-calibration

An integrated calibration sensor ensures you achieve maximum colour accuracy. The sensor is perfectly aligned to the monitor, takes environmental influences such as light into account, and correlates the centre of the image with the edge of the image. This ensures an even result over the whole monitor.

The sensor is located in the bezel and is only extended when performing measurements. This means that no external calibration device is necessary, and the colour fidelity of the monitor is optimal at all times.

The CG2700S is equipped with the latest sensor technology, allowing it to be recalibrated on the fly. So you can continue working with applications that are not colour-critical while the monitor calibrates. The sensor only takes up a small amount of space on the screen during calibration and therefore does not interfere. Calibration can also take place completely automatically at definable times, even if the computer is switched off or not connected to the monitor at all.

Calibration CG2700S, CG2700X
Stable display thanks to industry-leading AI

To ensure gradations, colour, brightness and other characteristics are always accurately displayed even when the ambient temperature changes, the ColorEdge CG2700S is equipped with a temperature sensor. It accurately measures the monitor’s internal temperature, while an AI (artificial intelligence)-assisted correction algorithm* distinguishes between different temperature change patterns and calculates a precise adjustment in real time.

* Patent pending

Stable colour reproduction in just three minutes

It takes a traditional monitor a minimum of 30 minutes for the brightness, chromaticity and tone values to stabilise, whereas the ColorEdge CG2700S only needs three minutes. It means that users know they can reliably trust the colours of the monitor within a short time after switching in on.

Calibration Out of the Box
Ready to use right out of the box: perfect settings right from the factory

Every ColorEdge CG2700S is individually measured and optimally configured in the factory, enabling it to be used immediately after it has been unboxed. To this end, the gamma curves for the red, green and blue channels are closely checked and corrected, if necessary. This unique EIZO factory calibration enables the user to start using the monitor with the preset gamut range right out of the box. This painstaking calibration at the factory ensures that the user can quickly recalibrate the monitor if needed using ColorNavigator.

EIZO software for fast calibration and printing

Each monitor ages and changes its display properties. This is why graphics monitors, which require an absolutely constant image display over the entire service life, must be regularly calibrated and adjusted. With the free calibration software ColorNavigator from EIZO, the ColorEdge CG2700S can be adjusted within 90 seconds (measured with a MacBook Pro and EX4), easily and without any losses. This is to ensure that the same image still looks the same on the monitor five years from now.

More information on the EIZO ColorNavigator


For users who want to calibrate several monitors in the company, EIZO offers the ColorNavigator Network tool. This allows for the quality management of many ColorEdge monitors to be carried out centrally. Among other things, an administrator can deliver calibration targets to the users and trigger the automatic calibration of ColorEdge monitors of the CG series. With the help of a secure cloud server offered by EIZO, it is possible to administer this central quality management across numerous locations or even continents.

EIZO Microchip
EIZO microchip for optimised colour reproduction

The CG2700S has a high-quality microchip (ASIC, Application-Specific Integrated Circuit), which EIZO developed especially for the special requirements involved in work demanding high colour accuracy. This microchip is the brain of a ColorEdge as it guarantees the precise, uniform and constant image display that is the hallmark of EIZO.

Features for video and film production

The CG2700S is optimised to handle the special requirements of video post-production. The extremely high-performance built-in sensor also makes it possible to validate calibration results, while the 3D LUT guarantees exceptional precision.

Precise colour reproduction thanks to high-resolution 3D LUT

The 3D LUT ensures the most precise tonal value allocation and extremely accurate colour tone reproduction, which can be seen, among other things, in the grey wedge. In LCDs, the brightness levels vary from module to module in relation to the image signal and the colour mixing (addition) of red, green and blue. This can only be accurately recorded and controlled with the help of particularly precise measuring devices.

Ex works, EIZO therefore adjusts every monitor in the CG series and its colour and tone curve. This ensures a consistent colour temperature across the entire grey scale. The result: colour reproduction is the same, precise and reliable for every single CG2700S.

3D LUT
HDR Gamma

The ColorEdge CG2700S supports the two gamma curves for HDR video: the HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) curve and the PQ (Perceptual Quantization) curve. Up to the maximum brightness of 400 cd/m², thus the CG2700S ensures a meaningful impression of the processed HDR material, so that a HDR reference monitor like the ColorEdge CG3146 is often only required in the final production step.

Gamut pre-sets for film and video production

Pre-sets for the DCI-P3, BT.709 and BT.2020 colour spaces are precisely calibrated ex works and ensure working with correct gamma values. In addition, colour modes for PQ (DCI and BT.2100) and HLG (BT.2100) for displaying HDR content are also pre-set at the factory. The brightness setting for each pre-set can be conveniently adjusted and recalibrated thanks to the integrated calibration sensor.

Safe Area Marker
Safe in sight thanks to the Safe Area Marker

Ideal for subtitles and critical images: Thanks to the Safe Area Marker, you know which area of the scene is displayed in a different aspect ratio. You can therefore see immediately whether subtitles, texts or important picture elements are in the visible area. You can adjust the marker colour, size and aspect ratio so that the marker is clearly visible in every image.

Automatic colour settings

The ColorEdge CG2700S offers Sync Signal functionality, which adjusts monitor settings such as signal range and colour format to the video signal, offering consistent colour settings during the entire production process.

Luminance warning

The brightness warning can be used to mark areas that exceed a certain brightness (300, 500, 1000 or 4000 cd/m²) when using the PQ mode. These areas are marked optionally in yellow or magenta.

Gamut warning

The Gamut warning operates in two modes: Rec. 2020 image content that can’t be displayed in the Rec. 709 gamut is displayed in greyscale. Alternatively, clipping mode is simulated in Rec. 709 to show how Rec. 2020 material would look on HDTV devices.

Gamut Warning
Ideal for video and film production: HDMI

Films are normally recorded at 24 fps. They therefore appear unnatural with the conventional monitor rendering of 60 Hz. The monitor supports an image frequency of 24 and 60 Hz. This means that you can view and edit your film material as it was taken. 

HDMI signals with refresh rates of 60, 50, 30, 25 and 24 Hz are supported. The monitor also features I/P conversion.

Variety of ports

A growing number of creative professionals are using their portable computers not just while they are on the go. A powerful laptop is often their only computer, which is why more and more of them want to integrate their portable computer into their office at home or at work. EIZO is addressing this trend with the new ColorEdge graphics monitors.

USB-C
State-of-the-art connectivity with USB-C

Image signal, USB data transfer as well as power supply with up to 92 W Watts, all this and more can be realised with a single USB-C cable. This makes the ColorEdge CG2700S the central dock of the graphic workflow. Peripheral devices such as a mouse, keyboard or printer can be connected directly to the USB-A ports. Mobile devices such as laptops or tablets can even be charged via the USB-C cable with up to 92 W Watts via the USB-C cable. In this way, a laptop and CG2700S can be turned into a fully-fledged desktop workstation with a quick flick of the wrist.

Monitor ports

The CG2700S supports a wide range of video formats via USB-C, HDMI and DisplayPort interfaces. This means that the monitor can not only be integrated into PC-based workflows but can also be used with HDMI feeders.

LAN port to ensure a stable network connection

The monitor has a dedicated LAN port to ensure a wired network connection. Laptops and PCs require only one USB cable to be connected to the CG2700S to gain network access via the monitor. This is particularly advantageous for laptops that do not have a LAN connection and allows for fast and stable data transfer, which is required for video conferences, for example. As a network device the monitor has its own MAC address.

EIZO Monitor LAN
KVM Switch
KVM switch: two PCs, one user

It's never been easier to operate two PCs with a single mouse and keyboard. With two USB upstream ports (USB-C and USB-B), the ColorEdge CG2700S has a built-in KVM (Keyboard Video Mouse) switch. The monitor automatically links the mouse and keyboard to the currently active source computer. This means, for example, that a desktop PC and a laptop or a work and home PC can be operated on the same combination of monitor, mouse and keyboard. Switching is then done conveniently with the sensor key on the front of the monitor. This ensures uninterrupted work and a tidy workspace.

Ergonomics

ColorEdge monitors bring ergonomics to computer workstations. In addition to alleviating eye and back strain, the monitors also meet the user’s unique requirements. This is because we do not believe that you should have to adjust to your workstation – your workstation should adapt to your needs.

Work without screen flicker – your eyes will thank you for it

Many monitors flicker imperceptibly. This flickering is not consciously perceived, but it causes the eyes to tire more quickly. That is why EIZO attaches great importance to flicker-free monitors. This is great for users, as their eyes will not tire as quickly, allowing them to work in front of the screen for longer periods of time without fatigue.

Anti Glare
Modern antireflection technology

Nothing is more distracting than dazzling reflections on the monitor. That is why all EIZO monitors use modern antireflection technology. This does not just protect your eyes from excessive strain, but also saves you from having to assume uncomfortable positions while sitting in front of your monitor.

Stand – ergonomic and stable

Our screens offer continuous height adjustment. Depending on the model, they can even be lowered to the base plate of the stand. This guarantees the best possible ergonomics, regardless of whether the user is sitting or standing in front of the screen. You can also swivel, rotate and tilt the monitor base to the position that is most comfortable for your posture.

The CG2700S can also be rotated into the portrait format, which is a great advantage for tethered shoots of people in the portrait mode, for example.
