The exact calibration of the CS2420 takes place in the blink of an eye. That is down to the EIZO microprocessor, which optimally utilizes the potential of the wide gamut LCDs. The CS2420, therefore, shows colors and gradients as accurately as possible. Photography enthusiasts and amateur image processors alike will get an undistorted view of their images.
With a maximum resolution of 1920 x 1200 (HD), an excellent contrast ratio of 1000:1, and brightness of 350 cd/m2, you can edit graphics and images to the smallest pixel. The text contours are clear and precise. The LCD module with a IPS (Wide Gamut) panel provides a 178 viewing angle, delivering a stable view of hue, saturation and lightness.
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.
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.
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.
Calibration becomes quick, easy, and color accurate with the ColorNavigator 7 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.
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.
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.
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.
You can access color modes from the monitor’s memory at the click of a button. Standards such as sRGB and Adobe RGB are preconfigured at the factory. 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.
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.
The CS2420 has a flexible base to adjust the height, tilt, and rotation. The monitor can be tailored to the user's needs. For example, you can set a sitting position that is ergonomic for you (e.g. screen lowered to the bottom) or set to a position to show clients and colleagues something on the screen.
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.
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.
