Signal processing and electronics are the most important factors in ensuring premium image quality. The CS2730 impresses with an EIZO microprocessor that was specifically developed for precise color reproduction and calibration. The CS2730 excels at highlights and shadows in drawings and textures while also mastering highly saturated tones.
The monitor has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440, and a wide gamut IPS LCD panel, providing a 178 degree viewing angle, meaning that the user will get a long term stable view of both colour and contrast.
EIZO microchip for optimized colour reproduction
The monitor has a high-quality microchip (ASIC, Application-Specific Integrated Circuit), which EIZO has developed specifically for the special requirements of color-proof work. Thanks to their own algorithm, EIZO ASICs ensure a precise, uniform, and constant color display.
Wide gamut – ideal for RAW images and prints
Those working with RAW or Adobe RGB images should look no further than our wide gamut monitor: the wide color space reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB color spaces. If pictures taken in RAW format are converted to Adobe RGB, the monitor will display them absolutely correctly. For example, you can see a shining blue sky or lush green forests that are true to nature – unlike monitors with sRGB color space. The EIZO monitor also offers great benefits when printing: It covers almost the entire CMYK color space (for example ISO Coated and U.S. Web Coated). You can already see on the screen how your subsequent print result will look, saving yourself proofs.
High resolution look-up table
Thanks to their 16-Bit look-up tables, the CS2730 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.
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.
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.
Quick operation – even in dark rooms
Operation is easy and clear. The Button Guide, an overview function on the monitor, will show you the respective function keys above the control panel. The backlight keys mean that the monitor can even be used in dark environments. This is particularly helpful in dark post-production studios.
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.
Lightning-fast colour mode changes
You can access color modes from the monitor’s memory at the click of a button. There are also settings that you can calibrate yourself. Switching between modes takes mere seconds, and does not involve any delays caused by renewed calibration.
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 has a number of different ports. That makes your daily work easier.
Ergonomic and stable: the adjustable base
The CS2730 has a flexible base to adjust the height, tilt, and rotation. The monitor can be tailored to the user's needs.
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.
