EIZO Introduces New Generation of ColorEdge Monitors

EIZO today introduced the first of a new generation of ColorEdge monitors - the 27-inch CG2700X (3840 x 2160) and CG2700S (2560 x 1440). These flagship models support the HDR workflow and are the first ColorEdge monitors to feature a brand-new cabinet design and built-in network connection via USB Type-C connection.

The ColorEdge CG2700X and CG2700S display at 4K UHD and 2K WQHD resolution respectively. The remarkable detail ensures that high resolution content is displayed crisply, while the 27-inch screen provides ample space for displaying editing windows, toolbars, palettes, or other applications. This makes the monitor versatile for video editing, 3DCG creation, game development, photography, and other creative fields.
The monitors are equipped with EIZO's award-winning built-in sensor technology and ColorNavigator 7 color management software. The solution allows the user to calibrate the monitor automatically at designated times, eliminating the need for a third-party calibration device and ensuring the screen stays accurate over time.

Both monitors support HLG (hybrid log-gamma) and the PQ (perceptual quantization) curves for displaying and editing HDR (high dynamic range) content. The optimized gamma curves render images to appear truer to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR (standard dynamic range). This ensures professional creators can reliably display HDR content for editing and color grading.

USB Type-C connectivity allows users to display video, transmit USB signals, and supply up to 94 W (CG2700X) or 92 W (CG2700S) of power to a connected device, such as a tablet, MacBook Pro, or other high-end notebook PC. This convenient multi-purpose connectivity makes it faster and easier to connect when moving between creative workstations or when working in a remote or home studio. Furthermore, the monitors have a LAN port directly built in for providing a stable network connection. Connecting a laptop or desktop PC via USB Type-C provides access to the network through the monitor for sharing creative assets and files or carrying out post production work remotely.

The ColorEdge CG2700X and CG2700S are the first models proceeding EIZO's ColorEdge PROMINENCE HDR reference monitor to include Sync Signal. This function automatically adjusts the monitor's settings, such as input range and input color format, according to the video signal to ensure color settings stay consistent throughout production.

The backside of the ColorEdge CG2700X and CG2700S incorporates a new punched metal design that allows for more airflow, keeping the monitor cool without a noisy fan. The sleek, rounded edges and non-intrusive stand base allows these monitors to fit into any creative environment seamlessly. Both monitors also come bundled with a newly designed light-shielding hood that is lightweight and attaches to the monitor magnetically without needing to connect separate parts.

Availability

The ColorEdge CG2700X and CG2700S will begin shipping from spring 2022.

Too bad they're not offering 32" 4K unit. Still, price will most likely be matched in USD to K's in resolution since it's a pro level display.

My FlexScan EV2455 at the office is my 3rd Eizo since 2002, all 3 still work like day one. I'm not sure if the 2455 has the same build quality, but color accuracy and balance are excellent out of the box and not only for my amateur photographic use. A professional photographer and old friend (I'm still helping him with his job, but only 2-3 times per year) came to check my monitor just for fun. After that he decided to buy a ColorEdge with the same dimensions, 24,1", 1920x1200...
P.S. The basic model CS2410 comes at 500 euros.

What's wrong with IPS? Coming from a 17" laptop G-sync TN panel and going to a 27" G-sync monitor, the difference is like night and day for me. Its nice being able to view the whole screen without any color shift due to poor viewing angles.

i like my NEC, but for sure it isnt for Home or Gamors it have a 0 wrong pixel warranty etc. only 60Hz and a PLS Panel with 5 years warranty.:p
(Sorry its now about 13 years old with 1920x1200 but it works fine without any problems))

The Gamor buy a TN garbage Display with a few wrong pixels and 1 year warranty, but with 144Hz and Gsync :laugh:


If u use the PC as daily driver and not for skillor shit , a zero wrong pixel warranty is the gold standard. :D

Nothing. Each tech (PVA or IPS) has some pros and cons. It entirely depends on who is manufacturing it and how good is quality testing. I kinda like PVA more, due no risk of burned in image, but honestly I never saw IPS which would have it, even many years old.

Beside that, most EIZO monitors are kinda "special" in quality and especially lifetime expectancy. Even when they dont top tests (some lower end definitely doesnt), they usually last a lifetime. There is good chance one buys newer one just cause old one is really really too old. I saw fully working CRTs that were used by pros for tens of thousands hours without any problems.

That said, I think any LCD with zero faulty pixels tolerance and some decent color gamut, backlight is good choice, I mean, if one doesnt need it only for gaming. But I couldnt stand some stuff even for gaming, so.. I live with 60 Hz, but bloody good colors and backlight.

My thoughts exactly. I honestly don't see the point of a 27" 4K monitor especially since you'll need to run the scaling at probably 150% and end up with the same desktop real estate as 1440p anyway.

VA has better contrast, though IPS will probably still beat TN any day. IPS is more good for color consistency and viewing angles.

Too each their own. I wouldn't mind a dual 24" screens in 3:2 ms surface format in 4k each. Among a long list of other wants :)

I have a 27" 4k and yes I do run scacling at 150%, but everything is still smoother and crisper..............for me anyway. I'm apparently "farsighted" with a 21.5" 1080p monitor it looks like im looking through an insect screen when I look at it from 20" away. IMHO 24" should still be a standard screen size, but at 4k, not 1080p, MS should have fixed this day 1 with win10, or at least something better than 24" 1080p......... Before this I had a 1440p screen at 23.8" and ran 125% scaling and it was nice and crisp also.
