Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
We have compiled the answers to the most frequently asked question for you here. We add to this list on an ongoing basis so that you are kept up to date at all times.
What does a 3D look-up table do?
Typical 1D look-up tables (LUTs) have separate tables for red, green and blue. Depending on the model, EIZO links the color allocation to a single, three-dimensional look-up table (3D LUT) to ensure particularly accurate color control and in doing so, allows for the exact addition of primary colors to any chosen color tone – vital technology for the ideal gray scale and ultra-precise color rendering.
What does dynamic contrast enhancement and outline enhancement do?
Dynamic contrast and outline enhancement brings more contrast into the image during color tone reproduction, while simultaneously optimizing sharpness. This means that dark scenes are shown in the highest level of detail. This makes images look more vivid and films look more life-like.
Is a special display port cable required to transmit 4K at 60 Hz?
No. In general, every good display port cable is capable of transmitting 4K at 60 Hz.
What is 16-bit color processing for?
Precisely detailed reproduction requires precisely calculated color and tone values. These cannot be reduced or distorted by calculation errors. In particular, darker portions of images need to be taken into account, since the output values in these areas lie so close to one another. EIZO relies on the highest degree of precision to avoid tonal breaks and bandings: The company has developed microchips that calculate tone values of up to 16 bits, which corresponds to a computational accuracy of up to 1/65,000th.
Can I attach an EIZO RadiForce LCD monitor to an arm or other holding device?
EIZO RadiForce LCD monitors can generally be removed from their bases. They are equipped with four VESA-compatible drill holes to attach other holding devices on the reverse. Before they are fitted, the maximum load-bearing capacity of the mounting device should be checked.
Can my PC or Mac display a 4K resolution
What does wide gamut mean?
Wide gamut designates a color space that is considerably larger than the visible palette of conventional LCDs. Depending on the model, it covers up to 100% NTSC and 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. The colors of these monitors bring about a realistic image quality that was previously impossible in LCDs.
What are the differences between the different ColorEdge ranges (CG and CS)?
Whether image processing, film and television production, prepress, or photography, whether for professional use or use at home – EIZO ColorEdge monitors impress with their exact and absolutely color-accurate displays.
What does the Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) do?
Homogeneous luminance distribution and good color purity are key to achieving very accurate image rendering. The Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) circuit takes care of this. It automatically corrects non-uniformities in terms of luminance and chrominance for all tone values across the entire image area – pixel by pixel.
Are EIZO RadiForce LCD monitors safe for use in close proximity to the patient?
EIZO RadiForce monitors that can be used in close proximity to the patient fulfill the requirements of EN60601-1 or the CE-Medical Device Directive. The product data sheet describes whether a RadiForce model provides this level of electrical safety.
Information on older EIZO models is available on the EIZO Global website.
