A capable LCD monitor with the controls and functionality needed for digital imaging.FlexScan monitors may be the entry-level models in Eizo’s LCD range but they offer a good cost/performance ratio for a broad range of graphic applications, including imaging. Available with a narrow matte black or grey bezel (screen surround), the FlexScan S1931 presents a simple, sober design that makes images look vibrant and provides an uncluttered viewing area.
A top-of-the-range monitor with performance to match.ColorEdge monitors sit at the top of Eizo’s range and are designed to provide professional image quality. At more than double the price of the FlexScan S1931 display, Eizo’s ColorEdge CG19 is targeted at professional photographers, prepress professionals and people for whom colour accuracy and fidelity are paramount. Eizo actually claims to hand-adjust every ColorEdge monitor before it leaves the factory to ensure it delivers consistently accurate, reliable colour reproduction.
If you’re really serious about the quality of the digital prints you make, you need to introduce colour management into your workflow. The tools required are a colorimeter for measuring the colours produced by your monitor and a spectrophotometer (or spectrocolorimeter) for measuring the colours produced by your printer. Together they enable you to make the picture you see on-screen emulate the output of your printer.
