The ColorEdge CG279X 27″ 16:9 Hardware Calibration HDR IPS Monitor from EIZO is a professional display with built-in color management hardware and software for HDR video editing and color-accurate photo editing. It supports the HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and PQ (Perceptual Quantization) gamma curves for editing HDR video, as well as a wide color gamut for displaying images. The ColorEdge CG279X also has an integrated color calibration sensor and uses Stable Display technology to measure internal and ambient temperatures so it may adjust gradations, color, and brightness in real time.
EIZO designed the ColorEdge CG279X with an anti-glare panel, a native resolution of 2560 x 1440, In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colors, a 16-bit LUT, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1300:1, 350 cd/m2 brightness, 109 pixels per inch, and a 13 ms (GtG) response time. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. This display has one HDMI input, one DisplayPort 1.2 input, and one DVI-D input. There is also a USB Type-C port that supports DP alt mode, data transfers of up to 5 Gb/s using the USB 3.1 Gen 1 standard, and up to 15W of power for device charging. Additional USB ports include one USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-B input, two USB 3.1 Gen 1 Type-A outputs with 0.9A of charging power, and two USB 2.0 Type-A outputs with 0.5A of charging power.
The CG279X has been engineered to support 99% of the Adobe RGB and 98% of the DCI-P3 color gamuts. Once turned on, its colors stabilize in around 3 minutes. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, it features a vertical tilt of -5 to 35°, a left/right swivel of 344° (±172°), a clockwise rotation of 90°, and a height adjustment of 6.1″.
Built-In Sensor to Automate Your Workflow
The ColorEdge CG279X is equipped with a built-in sensor which 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 monitor features sensor technology that allows you to continue using it even during recalibration. The sensor swings onto the screen, taking up minimal space, so your work remains uninterrupted.
HDR Gamma Support
The ColorEdge CG279X is equipped with HLG (Gybrid 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 truer 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 ColorEdge CG279X offers a high contrast ratio of 1300:1 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.
10-Bit Simultaneous Display
With 10-bit simultaneous display from a 16-bit lookup table (LUT), the ColorEdge CG279X can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This results 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.
Safe Area Marker
A safe area marker designates the area of the screen that will be displayed when the monitor is connected to a particular device. This allows you to check that subtitles and other text will be visible. The color of the marker is changeable to ensure it remains with any imagery.
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 CG279X 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.
Uniformity Across the Screen
Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity on different parts of the screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. ColorEdge monitors are equipped with EIZO’s patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology, which counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating temperature may have on color temperature and brightness for stable image display.
Limited 5-Year Warranty
ColorEdge monitors are backed by a manufacturer’s limited 5-year warranty that covers all components including the LCD panel. Please note that usage time is limited to 30,000 hours.
