Looking for a true 4K monitor to improve your workflow?
With many monitors over-promising and under-delivering, life in the studio can become frustrating, and the quality of your output can head downhill, fast.
Presenting the ColorEdge CG319X, a 31.1-inch 4K computer monitor with 4K (4096 x 2160) for your Capture - to - Print workflow.
If you’re familiar with EIZO computer monitors, you’ll be thrilled to know this is the successor of the mighty ColorEdge CG318-4K.
Yep, upgrades all around.
Here are 5 reasons why the ColorEdge CG319X 4K computer monitor should be a part of your retouching workflow:
Upgraded built-in calibration sensor
You can now continue to use your monitor even during recalibration. The sensor swings onto the screen at a time you designate and takes up minimal space so your work remains uninterrupted. However, it is best to NOT carry out critical work during recalibration because the screen’s colours may adjust during the process. A built-in sensor also means you don’t need external devices to ensure your monitor stays colour-accurate!
Contrast ratio of 1500:1
For screen-based digital content, a high contrast ratio allows for producing true blacks that are otherwise difficult to display on a typical LCD monitor.
When printing your work, use ColorNavigator to reduce the contrast ratio to 200:1 for best results.
ColorNavigator 7 Color Management Software
To properly manage colour in your work, it is necessary to ensure your monitor maintains consistent settings. ColorNavigator 7 is available as a free download and allows you to easily carry out calibration. Simply select the desired preset or assign values for brightness, white point, and gamma. The built-in sensor directly utilizes the monitor's look-up-table and creates an ICC profile within minutes.
No more colour management issues resulting from changes in temperature
Did you know that the colours and brightness of an LCD monitor can be affected by changes in ambient temperature? The ColorEdge CG319X is equipped with an internal temperature sensor which detects those changes and adjusts the monitor so gradations, color, brightness, and other characteristics continue to be displayed accurately. The algorithm used in the AI (patent pending) of the monitor allows it to perform this temperature detection and adjustment even at high brightness levels for providing a truly accurate viewing environment.
Our patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating temperature may have on colour temperature and brightness for stable image display across the entire screen. The monitor also provides noiseless, fanless operation while still maintaining low heat output without impacting performance.
True colours even when viewed from an angle
This SDR monitor’s retardation film allows tones to retain their depth even when viewed from an angle.
Now that we’ve got you sitting up reading intently, here are 8 more reasons why the CG319X is one of the best 4K monitors for photo editing and video editing:
- 3D LUT for individual colour adjustment on an RGB cubic table
- 10-bit simultaneous display from a 24-bit LUT for smooth color gradations (A graphics board and software which support 10-bit output are also necessary for 10-bit display)
- DCI-4K (4096x2160) resolution at 60Hz via DisplayPort or HDMI input
4. Preset modes for photography, video and print:
- Rec. 2020
- Rec. 709
- PQ & HLG Rec2100
- Calibration (DIY)
5. Two Display Port and two HDMI inputs
6. Ergonomic stand which meets IEC/EN 62368-1
7. Light-shielding hood included
8. 5-Year manufacturer's warranty (usage time, up to 30,000 hours)
