The CS2740 is the first 27-inch model with 4K-UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution. ColorEdge monitors are designed for serious graphics users, particularly photographers and designers who can benefit from easy and accurate colour calibration and superior stability. They are also flicker-free and easy on the eyes, making them ideal for anyone who spends a lot of time in front of a computer screen. The CS2740 is supplied with a power cord, Display Port to Display Port signal cable, USB Type-C to USB Type-C signal cable and Quick guide.
Designed for photographers who shoot video and videographers who take still pictures, the CS2740 boasts a pixel density of 164 pixels/inch, which is almost twice the resolution of conventional Full HD displays at just 96 ppi. This high resolution of the IPS (Wide Gamut) panel means users can edit images and graphics down to pixel level.
The built-in Application-Specific Integrated Circuit (ASIC) microchip maintains a uniform and constant image display. It also covers the entire colour gamut that can be recorded by modern cameras. For stills, it encompasses 99% of the wide AdobeRGB photo gamut while for video, optimised HLG and PQ gamma curves make images recorded in Log formats appear more realistic for editing. This wide colour gamut accurately reproduces almost all of the ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK colour spaces used in printing.
If you routinely record 4K video and want the best monitor for editing your footage, a 4K screen is probably worth the investment. But if you seldom shoot video and simply need a screen for photo editing, you’d probably be better off investing in the CG2730.
