    Eizo Nanao Corporation today announced the ColorEdge CG275W, a 27-inch monitor for professionals in prepress, digital photography, graphic design, video editing, post production, and other graphics fields.

    The ColorEdge CG275W features a built-in calibration sensor for self-calibration. It becomes the second monitor in the graphics industry with this capability, following EIZO’s ColorEdge CG245W which was released last year.

    Self-calibration eliminates the need for a third-party external calibraqtion device and improves work efficiency since the monitor can be scheduled to self-calibrate outside of work hours when the computer is turned off. The computer itself is not necessary so a self-calibrated ColorEdge CG275W can be used with any operating system.

    The ColorEdge CG275W uses an IPS (in-plane switching) LCD panel with a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 (16:9 aspect ratio). This is more pixels than produced by two 19-inch monitors with a 1280 x 1024 native resolution so the monitor has ample space for displaying graphics applications and tool palettes. It has a maximum brightness of 270 cd/m2, contrast ratio of 850:1, 6 ms gray-to-gray response time, and 178° viewing angles.

    DVI-D, DisplayPort, and Mini DisplayPort inputs are included. All three ports offer up to 10-bit display which allows the monitor to show 1.07 billion colors simultaneously from a 16-bit look-up table (LUT).

    Several features are included for accurate color display.
    • Gamma curve is calibrated on the factory line.
    • Wide color gamut reproduces 97% of the Adobe RGB color space.
    • 3D LUT improves the panel’s additive color mixture (combination of red, green, and blue) for more accurate color and grayscale tones.
    • Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) compensates for fluctuations in brightness and chroma uniformity that are characteristic of LCD panels.
    • EIZO-patented technology stabilizes the brightness after start up or coming out of sleep mode.
    The ColorEdge CG275W uses hardware calibration so the monitor itself is calibrated rather than the computer’s graphics card. This ensures no tones are lost in the calibration process for more predictable on-screen color. EIZO’s bundled ColorNavigator calibration software2 is used for setting the target values for brightness, white point, and gamma and generating an ICC profile.

    ColorNavigator includes a “Correlation Utility” that matches the measurement results of the ColorEdge CG275W’s built-in calibration sensor to those of an external calibration device. This may be necessary in a work environment where the ColorEdge CG275W is used with other monitors and all measurement results need to be standardized.

    The ColorEdge CG275W comes with six preset color modes that reproduce common color spaces used in pre-press, digital photography, broadcasting and digital cinema: Adobe RGB, sRGB, Rec709, EBU, SMPTE-C, and DCI.

    Additional Features
    • Includes a shading hood that can be used in portrait mode as well as landscape mode.
      FlexStand 2 with 90° portrait display, 151.5 mm height adjustment, 25° tilt, and 344° swivel.
    • Energy-saving presence sensor that detects when the user is absent and prompts the monitor to enter sleep mode. When the user returns, normal operation automatically resumes.
      USB 2.0 hub with one upstream and two downstream ports.
    • Consumes less than one watt in power save mode and no power when turned off.
    • Simulation of two types of red-green (protanopia and deuteranopia) and one type of blue-yellow (tritanopia) color blindness.3 This helps designers to verify their color schemes can be recognized by people with all types of color vision.
    • Limited five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
    Availability
    The ColorEdge CG275W will begin shipping in late March. Date of availability and pricing will vary by country so please contact the EIZO subsidiary or distributor in your country for details.

    I would like this in 21" or 24" format, ie smaller than 27" footprint. And is this 3D capable? I want to have WYSIWYG for professional production / print situations. We need higher pixel density displays. The panels ARE available, why is no-one using them?

    I'll get excited when we hear about products like 27", IPS, 3840x2160. Unfortunately, I doubt we are going to see this in anything mainstream, but for professional marketplace I would like to see this, and see this soon. We need to see companies like NEC and EIZO taking just ONE STEP in this direction. I actually think we would have seen products like this already if it hadnt been for the "1080 consumer market (boom)" which caused a hiatus in display advancement in the pro market. There has been too much profit opportunity making cheap low density TFTs for the consumer segment.

    Anyway, let's hope 2011 gets display designers to plan higher pixel density so we start seeing panels like this in actual products in 2012.

    This is interesting. We used to have Eizos on our color-proofing stations at work but have switched over to new 30" NECs (so wanna bring in my gaming PC). But we use a Kodak-designed and supported professional system anyway.

    I have the 27 inch apple cinema display at 2560x1440, you seriously don't want to squeeze any more pixels into a display of that size!

    I'm all for a 27" 8MP IPS display, but my poor laptop can barely handle games at 1366*768 (Mobility Radeon HD 5650). Would be sweet for someone with like 2-4 GTX 580s probably.

    This is geared towards the professional color market i.e. advertising firms and graphic designers and such. When the color has to match the print out as much as possible on to please the client on a particular piece that's part of a $400,000 campaign that was retouched for five hours at $800 an hour the price of this monitor really isn't all that much.
