The IPS LCD module in the CS230 provides contrasts and color tones independent of the viewing angle. Thanks to the 16 bit look-up table and up to 10 bit color rendering, it displays color tones accurately. The monitor achieves its consistent colors thanks to its built-in measuring device and automatic self-correction.
The monitor has the maximum resolution (4096 x 2160 (4K) Pixel), an excellent contrast ratio of 1500:1, and brightness of 350 cd/m2. This means that you can edit graphics and images to the smallest pixel, for example. And what's more: the text contours are clear and precise. The LCD module with IPS (Wide Gamut) panel provides 178 viewing angle, meaning that the user will see colors and contrasts as stable.
High resolution look-up table
Thanks to their 16-Bit look-up tables, the CS2420 monitor resolves image signals with an accuracy of 1/65-thousandth. In particular for deeper color tones, nuances in color and image structures are preserved. This reliable and precise rendering reduces the need for corrections and therefore shortens valuable production time.
Professional calibration with EIZO ColorNavigator
Good image editing can only take place with a well-calibrated monitor. The standard software calibration takes a long time and requires the user to have technical expertise. The CS2730 is delivered with the ColorNavigator hardware calibration software. It can be even be performed by users with no technical expertise in just a few steps. Advanced users can enter numbers for brightness, gamma, white point, and other calibration settings as target values. As the calibration uses the monitor's hardware, it takes place without losses and independently of the computer and graphics card. The CS2730 integrates perfectly into an existing system.
Stable colors in the long term thanks to self-correction
The monitor undertakes color corrections independently using the built-in sensor. The sensor is located in the housing frame and only comes out when taking measurements. In the first step, you calibrate the monitor according to your needs using an external measuring device and the ColorNavigator software. After this, the sensor will automatically measure color values, white points, and brightness and make corrections autonomously at scheduled intervals. You can define the correction interval yourself. This means that colors will remain stable permanently.

Constant tone value over the entire screen
Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) controls all tone values over the entire monitor, pixel by pixel. The effect: color tones appear identical at each point on the screen, without the brightness fluctuations you experience in conventional LCDs. The DUE function also balances out the effects of fluctuations in ambient temperature on the color temperature and brightness. You will enjoy consistently even luminance distribution and perfect color purity. A real plus when touching-up images.
10 bit color depth: a billion colors in the finest grades
Thanks to the 10 bit color display based on a 16 bit LUT, you can utilize a huge color spectrum. This is made possible by the rapid DisplayPort and HDMI connections in combination with the frame rate control. A billion colors at your fingertips simultaneously. That is 64 times more colors than with an 8 bit display. The color gradations are finer and the color differences between adjacent colors are smaller. The enhanced grayscale range is equally important for post-production. With the 10 bit grayscale range activated, between 6% and 14% more grayscales are visible.
8 bit and 10 bit display
The monitor is flicker-free at every brightness setting. This is implemented using the hybrid technology developed by EIZO to control the backlight. This combines the benefits of the otherwise standard PWM (pulse width modulation) and DC (direct current) control. The benefit: Your eyes do not get tired as quickly. You can work on the screen for an extended period.
One monitor, many ports
It doesn't get easier than this: You can connect most of your devices, such as PC, laptop or cameras directly to the monitor because the monitor hasa number of different ports. That makes your daily work easier.
Ergonomic and stable: the adjustable base
The CG318-4K has a flexible base to adjust the height, tilt, and rotation. The monitor can be tailored to the user's needs. For example, he can set a sitting position that is ergonomic for him (e.g. lowered to the bottom) or a position to show clients and colleagues something on the screen.
Tilt up 35°, tilt down 5°
Perfect anti-reflection coating
The IPS panel has optimal anti-reflection coating. Glare from the spread of the reflected light is minimized. This also protects your eyes from excess strain. In addition, this means the monitor provides a wide viewing angle without annoying reflections. This is particularly advantageous when several people are sitting in front of the screen.
Exact color reproduction ex works
Brightness levels in relation to the image signal vary from module to module in LCDs and therefore the color mixture of red, green, and blue also varies. This can be exactly determined and controlled only with the aid of specific measuring devices. Therefore, EIZO configures the CS2420 and its colors and tone curves with a widespread network of grid points and in each primary color. This results in a consistent color temperature over the entire gray scale.
Exact and fast hardware calibration
Calibration becomes quick, easy, and color accurate with the ColorNavigator software: Calibration is accessed and stored directly on the look-up table in the monitor's hardware during calibration. You determine the corresponding components such as white point, gamma, brightness, and tone curve according to your needs. The calibration is then fully automatic and based on the factory adjustment and is therefore unique in terms of precision and speed.
