EIZO Corporation announced the first in a new generation of ColorEdge monitors – the 27-inch CG2700X (3840 x 2160) and CG2700S (2560 x 1440). These flagship models support HDR workflow and are the first ColorEdge monitors to feature a brand-new cabinet design and built-in network connection via USB Type-C connection.
The two new ColorEdge monitors differ primarily in resolution. The panel of the CG2700S has the popular WQHD resolution with 2560 x 1440 pixels, whereas the panel of the CG2700X offersa 4K UHD resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels. Both monitors guarantee a very sharp image impression (109 ppi or even 164 ppi) and enable a perfect view of the imaged file. The remarkable detail ensures that high resolution content is displayed crisply, while the 27-inch screen provides ample space for displaying editing windows, toolbars, palettes, or other apps. This makes the monitor versatile for video editing, 3DCG creation, game development, photography, and other creative fields.
Both monitors are equipped with EIZO’s award-winning built-in sensor technology and ColorNavigator 7 colour management software. This allows you to calibrate the monitor automatically at designated times, ensuring the screen stays accurate over time and no need for a third-party calibration device.
The monitors also support HLG (hybrid log-gamma) and the PQ (perceptual quantization) curves for displaying and editing HDR content. Now your images will appear truer to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR, ensuring reliable HDR content display for editing and colour grading.
The new USB Type-C connectivity lets Creators display video, transmit USB signals, and even supply power to a connected device, such as a tablet, MacBook Pro, or other high-end PC notebooks. This convenient multi-purpose connectivity makes it faster and easier to connect when moving between creative workstations or when working in a remote or home studio. Furthermore, the monitors have a LAN port directly built in for providing a stable network connection.
The ColorEdge CG2700X and CG2700S include Sync Signal. This function automatically adjusts the monitor’s settings, such as input range and input colour format, according to the video signal to ensure colour settings stay consistent throughout production.
The backside of the ColorEdge CG2700X and CG2700S incorporates a new punched metal design that allows for more airflow, keeping the monitor cool without a noisy fan.
