High-end visual display company, Eizo, has announced two new 24.1″ graphics monitors and a free cloud-based solution that centralises colour management of all ColorEdge monitors.
The two new ColorEdge monitors, the CG247 (above) and CX241, feature a new wide-gamut IPS panel that can reproduce 99 percent of Adobe RGB colour space, according to Eizo. Both units also feature 10-bit display (which requires a supporting graphics board and software), HDMI and DVI inputs, two upstream and two downstream USB ports.
The difference between the two models is that the CG247 comes with a built-in calibration sensor for self-calibration and targets professional photographers for pre-press and post-production. The CX241 houses an internal correction sensor that maintains the calibration results after the monitor has been sequenced with an external calibration sensor, ideal for professionals and enthusiasts.

Cloud-based ColorNavigator Network
The ‘industry first’ ColorNavigator Network enables companies using Eizo monitors at a client’s site to do all the calibration from the office on a single computer. The network is a secure, cloud-based web hosting solution for administrators to perform quality control tasks on ColorEdge monitors with ColorNavigator NX installed.
When combining the two (ColorNavigator and NX), an administrator can take advantage of the self-calibration capabilities by performing quality control tasks on a network of ColorEdge monitors from a single location ““ be it the same office, another city or country.
Quality Control tasks can be scheduled by an administrator at regular intervals, which Eizo says can potentially save a post-production studio or printing company hours in maintenance downtime, whilst ensuring colour accuracy. Adjustment information is saved on the monitor and not reliant on the PC, making the display colour appear exactly the same when connected to more than one workstation
In addition to colour adjustment, users can input: asset management information for each monitor, import/export monitor settings to efficiently set up multiple monitors, and enable/disable colour modes to ensure the correct modes are used on a project.
