What is a Graphics Monitor?
While your camera can capture trillions of colours, conventional computer monitors can only show around 16 million of these.
By contrast, an EIZO ColorEdge Graphics Monitor is custom built for image editing and on-screen image proofing. A wide gamut and a palette of over 278 trillion colours reveal natural tones and subtle details that would otherwise be hidden from view.
ColorEdge Monitors are built to faithfully reflect your editing changes and display your files as they truly are.
Following are some features unique to Eizo ColorEdge Graphics Monitors. For a more comprehensive understanding, please download our ColorEdge Brochure or our local Selection Guide.

To achieve as accurate display of colour as possible, EIZO has developed its own application specific integrated circuit (ASIC).
With this ASIC, the gamma level of each monitor is adjusted at the factory by measuring the R, G, and B gamma values from 0 - 255, and using the 16-bit LUT (palette of 65,281 tones) to select the 256 most appropriate tones to achieve the desired value.
This ensures tones are displayed as intended without colour banding making them ideal for photography and retouching where colour management is critical.
CX series and select CS series monitors have SelfCorrection sensors which can be scheduled to automatically readjust the screens and save you the time of having to do it yourself.
3D LUT for Accurate Colour Display
A 3D LUT is included with the CG series which adjusts colours individually on an RGB cubic table. This improves the monitor's additive colour mixture (combination of RGB), which is a key factor in it's ability to display grey tones.
Colour Gamuts Reproduced on Screen
The CG and CX series reproduce almost the entire Adobe RGB color space. The vibrant blue skies and lush green forests seen in photos will be displayed on screen in a way not possible on monitors with an sRGB color space. The wide color gamut also ensures that the monitors reproduce almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK color spaces used in printing.
Built in Sensor
Self Calibration Sensor
CG318, CG248, CG277, CG247
Automate your calibration with the calibration sensor that is housed within the monitor's front bezel.
Self Correction Sensor
CX241, CX271, CS230
A third party sensor is required for calibrating the monitor, but the built in correction sensor maintains the calibration settings thereafter. The correction sensor appears only after a specific amount of time determined by the user has elapsed.
Brightness and Colour Uniformity with DUE
Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity (colour) on different parts of the screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. One section of the screen might look warm and bright while another section might look cooler or darker. How to trust which part of the screen is correct?
To counteract this, ColorEdge monitors are set with EIZO's patented Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) technology to ensure a Delta-E difference of 3* or less across the screen when they leave the factory. And now DUE also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating ambient temperature may have on colour temperature and brightness, to ensure stable image display at all times.
*Delta-E difference applicable to CG and CX series only.
Simple and Precise Calibration with ColorNavigator Software
› FOR: Photography, Printing and PrePress, Graphic Arts
Calibrate to Preset or User-Assigned Values
Preset values for web contents, photography, and printing are available. Just select one, click "Adjust", and ColorNavigator 6 will begin calibrating. This takes the guesswork out of assigning values for users with limited color management knowledge. Experienced users can assign the desired values for brightness, white point, and gamma and then calibrate.
Post-Calibration Colour Adjustment
If you need to visually fine tune your colour after calibrating, CN 6 lets you adjust hue, saturation and lightness for all 6 primary and secondary colours (R,G,B,C,M,Y) as well as white point, brightness, black level and gamma. We recommend this for users who have a good control over their final image output.
Switch Your Profiles as Needed
Change the target profile even when CN 6 is not activated. A list of profiles are always instantly accessible. Choose one and it will be applied to your monitor's settings.
ColorNavigator NX and ColorNavigator Network
› FOR: Motion Graphics
ColorNavigator Network and ColorNavigator NX software enable unified colour quality control and asset management of all monitors in a studio or across a network in multiple locations. ColorNavigator NX enables calibration, emulation, built-in sensor correlation, and colour mode setting.
Select Industry Standard Colour Modes or Create Your Own
Select the existing colour settings such as Rec709 or DCI, or to suit the needs of a specific project, you can manually change the brightness, gamma, and white point settings of the monitor’s preset colour modes and calibrate to the new values.
Save Calibration Information in the Monitor
Calibration information is saved to the monitor instead of the workstation’s operating system so you don't have to recalibrate the monitor if connecting to more than one workstation.
Colour Mode Name Customization
Give your colour mode its own name to avoid confusion about which one to use for a specific project. You can also prevent accidental use of colour modes by disabling ones you do not need for your current projects.
Predictable Colour with any Medium
With content published on so many different types of printed and digital media it's critical to know how your clients will see colour. A ColorEdge monitor and the bundled ColorNavigator software let you do just that as they are designed for both softproofing and digital device emulation. So now you can "predict" how colour will appear to your clients whether you produce content for printed media like books and magazines or for digital media devices like tablets, smart phones, and notebook computers.
The ColorEdge 4K series offers both DCI 4K standard (4096 × 2160) and 4K UHD (3840 × 2160) models. Whether you are creating, editing, or checking your work, the pixel density of these monitors gives you the high performance needed for expressing your creativity in extreme detail.
Abundant Screen Space for Your Digital Canvas
The CG247, CX241, and CS240 display two A4 pages at actual size plus tool palettes on their 24.1-inch screen. The CG277, CX271 and CS270 give you even more room with their spacious 27-inch screen and 2560 x 1440 resolution.
5 Year Warranty
A 5-year manufacturer's warranty ensures longevity and brings peace of mind. In addition, the backlight brightness is warranted for three years at a brightness of up to 100 cd/m2 or more depending on the model with the usage time at a maximum of 10,000 hours. (See individual product specifications for further details on brightness warranty for our ColorEdge CG models.)
