Built-In SelfCalibration Sensor
Automate your calibration with the built-in SelfCalibration sensor that
is housed within the monitor's bottom bezel and swings up onto the
screen only when calibrating. This sensor eliminates the need for a
third-party calibration device and even operates in portrait mode.
Correlation with External Sensors
Using either the OSD menu or the bundled ColorNavigator software, you
can schedule the monitor to self-calibrate at specific times. Even if
the monitor is switched off or not connected to a computer, it will
stick to its preset schedule and self-calibrate.
The monitor can be correlated to the measurement results of an
external calibration sensor. After correlating, the built-in sensor will
automatically recalibrate to the settings. This is convenient if the
monitor is used in a work environment with other monitors and one
measurement device must be used as a standard for all calibration.

Reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB Color Space
IPS panel with a wide color gamut reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB color
space so images shot in RAW can be converted to Adobe RGB or images
shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. The colors seen in photos
of vibrant blue skies and lush green forests will be reproduced
faithfully. The wide color gamut also ensures that the monitor
reproduces almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK color
spaces used in printing as well as 93% of the DCI used in post
Excellent Tone Display in the Dark
viewing the screen from an angle in a dimly lit room, dark tones
typically appear washed out due to the display characteristics of LCD
backlights. The monitor maintains a high contrast ratio even from an
angle which allows the dark tones to retain their depth.
Non-Glare IPS Panel
The IPS (in-plane switching) panel exhibits no glare and allows several people to view the monitor with minimal color shift.
LED Backlight Cuts Power by 40%
The LED backlight reduces energy consumption by 40% compared to a
conventional backlight. It is also mercury-free for less impact on the
environment when it is eventually disposed of.
Brightness Modulation Minimizes Flicker
To counteract the flicker that is noticeable by some users at low
brightness settings, EIZO uses PWM (pulse width modulation) technology.
This helps prevent eye fatigue for a more comfortable work environment.
Features for Creative Work Uniformity from Corner to Corner
Delta-E ab distribution across the screen (gray level 128 measured)
Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity on different parts of the
screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. To counteract this, the
monitor incorporates EIZO's patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE)
technology to ensure a Delta-E difference of 3 or less across the screen
when the monitor leaves the factory. DUE also counterbalances the
influences that a fluctuating ambient temperature may have on color
temperature and brightness to ensure stable image display.
Individually Adjusted at the Factory
The gamma level for each ColorEdge monitor is adjusted at the factory.
This is accomplished by measuring the R, G, and B gamma values from 0 –
255, then using the monitor’s 16-bit look-up table (LUT) to select the
256 most appropriate tones to achieve the desired value.
Stable Display within Seven Minutes of Startup
From the time it is turned on it typically takes 30 minutes or longer
for a monitor’s brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to
stabilize. EIZO has shortened this warm-up time by more than 75% to a
mere 7 minutes. For confirming your work in a photo studio or taking
your monitor with you on location, you can get to work right away.
10-Bit Simultaneous Display
Using the DisplayPort input, the monitor offers 10-bit simultaneous
color display* from a 16-bit look-up table which means it can show more
than one billion colors simultaneously. This is 64 times as many colors
as you get with 8-bit display which results in even smoother color
gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors.
*A graphics board and software which support 10-bit output are also necessary for 10-bit display.
Simple and Precise Calibration with ColorNavigator
The bundled ColorNavigator software makes calibration both simple and
quick. Just input target values for brightness, white point, and gamma.
The built-in sensor directly utilizes the monitor's look-up table and
creates an ICC profile within minutes. You can always download the
latest version of ColorNavigator for free here on eizo.com.

How to Color Match Your ColorEdge Monitor and Photo Prints
In this guide, we go over how you can retouch and print digital
photos on your own home inkjet printer and match the colors with
Predictable Color with Any Media
With content published on so many different types of printed and
digital media it's critical to know how your clients will see color. 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 color 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
Used by Magnum Photos
Several photographers and digital directors from Magnum Photos use
ColorEdge monitors in their color management workflow for the
restoration of historical Magnum imagery and the production of
contemporary photographs. Read more about the collaboration between Magnum and EIZO.
During the development of the ColorEdge CG277, photographer Carl De Keyzer of Magnum Photos,
tested the monitor and commented, “The calibration system is
astonishing – for the first time I can calibrate my screen without
professional help. The colors are entirely in line with what comes out
of my large printers, so no guessing anymore, just true WYSIWYG.”
Comfort and Convenience
DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D inputs are included and support
resolutions up to 2560 x 1440. The HDMI input also offers direct
connection with digital cameras. Two USB upstream ports allow two
computers to be connected at once so it’s not necessary to reconnect the
USB cable when using the ColorNavigator software and switching between
the two computers.
Smooth Display of Video
For video editing or post production work, an overdrive circuit is
included to reduce gray-to-gray response time to 6 ms and ensure that
moving images look clean and sharp with a minimum of ghosting.
Adjust the screen to the most comfortable angle for you and reposition
it to show your work to a colleague or client. The monitor comes with a
versatile stand that offers height, tilt, and swivel adjustments as well
as portrait mode display.
Shading Hood for Portrait and Landscape Modes
Most shading hoods can only be used in landscape mode, but this monitor
comes bundled with a unique hood that is designed for portrait mode as
well. Now you can keep the glare off your screen no matter which mode
you work in.
Ideal for Video Editing and Post Production
Preset Color Modes
A button on the front of the monitor provides quick access to several
broadcast-standard color modes reset color modes: Rec. 709, EBU,
SMPTE-C, and DCI. In addition, sRGB and Adobe RGB modes are also
Input Support for 4K x 2K
4K x 2K resolutions of 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160 at up to 30
frames/second via the DisplayPort input then downscales them to its
native resolution of 2560 x 1440. This added functionality makes the
ColorEdge CG277 a practical choice for editing when working with the
increasingly popular 4K x 2K resolutions used in digital television and
Film is usually shot at 24 frames/second and looks unnatural when
played back on a typical monitor that displays 60 frames/second. The
HDMI input supports a video signal display rate of 1080/24p
frames-per-second so you can edit the film as it was meant to be viewed.
3D LUT for Accurate Color Display
A 3D LUT is included which adjusts colors individually on an RGB cubic
table. With the bundled ColorNavigator software’s emulation function,
the 3D LUT applies a film look to the image so creators can check how it
will be seen by their audience. The 3D LUT also improves the monitor's
additive color mixture (combination of RGB), which is a key factor in
its ability to display neutral gray tones.
LED Buttons and On-Screen Button Guide
For dimly lit work environments like post production studios, the
monitor comes with backlit control buttons and an on-screen button guide
to indicate what each button is for.
Safe Area Marker
A safe area marker designates the area of the screen that will be
displayed when the monitor is connected to a particular device. This
allows you to check that subtitles and other text will be visible. This
color of the marker is changeable to ensure it remains with any imagery.
