Looking for a true DCI 4K monitor to "up" your post-production game?
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 DCI-4K resolutions (4096 x 2160) and HDR gamma support for your professional post-production 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 post-production workflow:
Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG) and Perceptual Quantization (PQ) curve
Essential for displaying and editing HDR video content. The optimized gamma curves render images to appear more true to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR (standard dynamic range). Having a monitor equipped with HDR gamma support ensures professional creators can reliably display HDR content during the editing process so it is ready for color grading at the end of the 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
The ColorEdge CG319X’s wide colour gamut reproduces 98% of the DCI-P3 colour space you use in the media and entertainment industry. Complying with the DCI standard, the monitor’s high contrast ratio allows for producing true blacks that are otherwise difficult to display on a typical LCD monitor.
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.
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.
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 resolution at 60Hz via DisplayPort 1.2 or HDMI input
4. Broadcast and cinema preset modes:
- Rec. 2020
- Rec. 709
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 limited to 30,000 hours)
