EIZO has announced its new ColorEdge CS2740 monitor, which offers full 4K UHD resolution.
This allrounder from the CS series features a USB-C port which forms the visual core of any digital, colour-accurate workflow and guarantees consistent results with incredibly rapid, hardware calibration.
Videographers want to see their material in the full 4K UHD resolution, while photographers wish to preview the full sharpness of their printed images on the monitor. The ColorEdge CS2740 from EIZO fulfils both these requirements. An ultra-sharp monitor display is guaranteed with 3840 x 2160 pixels, which corresponds to a detail resolution of 164 ppi.
A graphics monitor’s most important task is to display exactly what the camera has saved. That’s why each ColorEdge CS2740 is individually measured and optimally configured in the factory. Inhomogeneities like differences in brightness and partial unnecessary colours are identified and permanently removed. The ColorEdge CS2740 is hardware-calibratable in just 90 seconds without losses, which means that it consistently retains its factory-set perfection across its entire service life.
A processor developed by EIZO (ASIC) computes the necessary colour commands in the monitor with a 16-bit colour depth. The CS2740 covers all conventional gamuts (e.g., 99% Adobe RGB) for brilliant and differentiated reproduction, even for saturated colours. This allows further steps in the digital workflow like printing (in the soft-proofing view) to be simulated reliably.
A growing number of creative professionals are using their laptops not just while they’re on the go. A powerful laptop is often their only computer, which is why more and more of them want to integrate their portable computer into their office at home or at work.
EIZO is supporting this trend with the new ColorEdge CS2740 graphics monitor. Thanks to its four downstream ports and its USB-C upstream port, hard disks, mice, keyboards and other peripheral devices such as memory card readers can be connected directly to the monitor.
The user then only needs to connect the laptop to the CS2740 using just the one USB-C cable to integrate their portable computer into the entire workflow and to supply up to 60 watts of power. The need for a separate docking station or additional power supply unit is a thing of the past. Plus, the CS2740 also has HDMI and Display Port inputs. This makes the ColorEdge CS2740 the central hub for discerning creative professionals.
Plans had been in place to unveil the new EIZO ColorEdge CS2740 at this weekends The Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham. Since the shows cancellation, EIZO has confirmed it will be on its stand at the rescheduled event held in September.
