Hassle-free maintenance and optimal colour reproduction for professionals to express their vision.
Let your imagination soar with this professional-level model for use in photography, design, print, and post production. The Eizo ColorEdge CG2420 24.1″ Hardware Calibration LCD Monitor features a built-in self calibration sensor for hassle-free monitor maintenance, vivid colours reproduced to industry standards, and exceptionally high contrast for producing true blacks.
Simple and Precise Colour Management
Built-In Sensor to Automate Your Workflow
Automate your calibration with the sensor that is housed within the front bezel. The sensor swings onto the screen only when calibrating, eliminating the need for a third-party calibration device. It even operates while the monitor is in portrait mode.
ColorNavigator 6 Colour Management Software
To properly manage colour in your work, it is necessary to ensure your monitor maintains consistent settings. The bundled ColorNavigator 6 software allows you to easily carry out calibration. Simply select the desired preset or assign values for brightness, white point, and gamma. ColorNavigator 6 is compatible with a wide range of measurement devices from X-Rite, DataColor, and other manufacturers.
ColorNavigator NX Quality Control Software
The ColorEdge CG2420 supports ColorNavigator NX quality control (QC) software. It offers asset management of client ColorEdge monitors and covers calibration, built-in sensor correlation, and colour mode settings. With ColorNavigator NX, calibration information is saved to the monitor instead of the PC’s operating system so you do not have to recalibrate if connecting to more than one PC. The software is most effectively used with EIZO’s ColorNavigator Network solution.
ColorNavigator Network Quality Control Software
ColorNavigator Network provides centralised quality control of ColorEdge monitors that have ColorNavigator NX installed. Administrators can set colour modes, schedule self-calibration, register or adjust asset management settings, and other tasks whether the monitors are local or remote. ColorNavigator Network is hosted on a secure cloud server to free you from the initial investment and running costs of providing your own server.
Features for Creative Work
Vivid Colours Reproduced to Industry Standards
The wide colour gamut of the ColorEdge CG2420 reproduces almost the entire Adobe RGB colour space so images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. Photos of vibrant blue skies and lush green forests are reproduced faithfully in a way that monitors limited to an sRGB colour space cannot display. The wide colour gamut also ensures reproduction of almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK colour spaces used in printing.
10-bit Simultaneous Display
Using the DisplayPort or HDMI inputs, the ColorEdge CG2420 offers 10-bit simultaneous display from a 16-bit look-up-table (LUT) which means it can show more than one billion colours simultaneously. This is 64 times more colours than you get with 8-bit display, resulting in smooth colour gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colours.
Adjusted at the Factory for Smooth Colour Gradations
The gamma level for each ColorEdge monitor is adjusted at the factory by measuring the R, G, and B gamma values from 0 – 255, then using the monitor’s 16-bit look-up-table (LUT) to select the 256 most appropriate tones and achieve the desired value. This ensures the smoothest colour gradations in your images.
Stable Colour in Just 3 Minutes
A typical monitor takes 30 minutes or more for its brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilise. The ColorEdge CG2420 takes a mere 3 minutes. Whether you are working in a studio or taking the monitor with you on location, you get reliable colour display soon after turning the monitor on.
Uniformity from Corner to Corner
Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity on different parts of the screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. To counteract this, the monitor is equipped with EIZO’s patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology to ensure stable image display and counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating temperature may have on colour temperature and brightness for stable image display.
Wide Viewing Angles with IPS Panel
The 178° wide viewing angles afforded by the IPS panel technology allow two or more people to view the screen at once with little change in colour or contrast.
Feature for Video Editing and Post Production
True Black Display
In compliance with the DCI standard, the ColorEdge CG2420 offers a high contrast ratio of 1500:1 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.
Sleek, User-Friendly Design
The slim cabinet features unobtrusive frames that are 39% slimmer than its predecessor’s so you can focus more on the screen.
Seamless Electrostatic Switches
The flat design uses electrostatic switches on the front bezel in place of traditional buttons for seamless access to monitor settings.
Built-in Carrying Handle
A carrying handle on the back of the monitor allows you to easily move it from one location to another.
Easy-Access USB Ports
The monitor is equipped with three easy-to-access USB 3.0 ports, including one port for battery charging devices such as a smartphone.
Features for Comfort and Ease-of-Use
Minimised Reflections with Non-Glare Panel
The monitor is equipped with an IPS non-glare panel for high visibility. It also uses dimming technology to minimize flicker and help prevent eye fatigue for a more comfortable working environment.
I/P Conversion for Flicker-Free Display
The HDMI input of the ColorEdge CG2420 supports I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion for converting the interlace signals from TV and video into progressive signals for flicker-free display.
Optional Light-Shielding Hood
An optional shading hood is available that effectively prevents glare on the monitor’s screen caused by ambient lighting. The shading hood is newly designed and attaches to the monitor magnetically. This allows the users to attach the hood quickly and easily without needing to connect separate parts.
Ergonomic Stand for Comfort and Convenience
Adjust the screen to the most comfortable angle and reposition it to show your work to a colleague or client. The monitor comes with a versatile stand that offers height, tilt, and swivel adjustments as well as portrait display.
DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D inputs are included and support various types of graphics boards. The HDMI input also offers direct connection with digital cameras.
