June 15, 2007: Eizo Nanao Corporation has announced the release of the ColorEdge CG241W, its latest hardware-calibrated LCD monitor.
Designed for high-end graphics work including digital photography, video editing, pre-press and post-production, the ColorEdge CG241W has a native resolution of 1920 ø— 1200 pixels and supports a 16:10 aspect ratio that can also display widescreen images. The wide gamut LCD panel reproduces 92% of NTSC and 96% of the Adobe RGB colour space so it can display most colours in a photograph taken in Adobe RGB mode. Maximum brightness is 300 cd/m ², contrast ratio is 850:1, and horizontal and vertical viewing angles are 178 °.
Hardware calibration calibrates the monitor itself, rather than the computer’s graphics board, as is the case with software calibration. This ensures no colour tones are lost and results in more accurate on-screen colour. Bundled ColorNavigator CE calibration software allows users to set target values for brightness, white point, and gamma. ColorNavigator CE works with a measurement device to utilise the monitor’s 12-bit look-up table for accurate calibration in less than five minutes. When calibration is complete the settings can be saved as an ICC profile. The software also offers black level settings (digital signal only) and a paper white measuring function for colour matching between the image on the monitor and the image on the printouts. Supported calibration devices for ColorNavigator CE include Eye-One, DTP94, DTP94B, and MonacoOPTIX from X-Rite, and ColorVision’s Spyder2.
Like all ColorEdge monitors, the CG241W is factory-calibrated before shipping to produce a gamma curve of 2.2 plus accurate brightness and chroma. An adjustment certificate is supplied with each unit to verify the results. The ColorEdge CG241W will be available locally in mid-July. For product detaisl visit www.eizo.com.au.
