EIZO and Magnum Photos Announce Global Collaboration with Establishment of Ambassador Program

EIZO Corporation and Magnum Photos today announced a global collaboration to provide EIZO with objective feedback on their ColorEdge monitors.

Their insights will assist EIZO in its ongoing development of new graphics monitor and calibration software solutions.

EIZO and Magnum will also cooperate on creating individual profiles of the ambassadors with insights into their careers, bodies of work, and experiences with EIZO monitors. EIZO will begin posting these profiles on its web site www.eizo.com in November. In addition, each ambassador will share a selection of images from their work for EIZO to showcase its monitors at exhibitions and in showrooms worldwide.

''Color and grayscale accuracy is paramount for Magnum and its photographer members. With numerous large-scale exhibitions in cultural institutions each year, ensuring the accurate translation of the image into fine-art prints is essential. The integration of EIZO's ColorEdge series monitors into our workflow will serve both the restoration of historical Magnum imagery and the production of contemporary photographs by our members.'' Alex Majoli, President, Magnum Photos International.

The ColorEdge series is EIZO's professional line of color management monitors. Most ColorEdge monitors come with a built-in calibration or correction sensor and are supported by EIZO's own ColorNavigator software to deliver predictable color results through hardware calibration and ease-of-use through completely automated screen adjustment.

''We are very pleased to collaborate with Magnum Photos and provide our graphics solutions for the important work of chronicling the people and events of our times,'' said Yoshitaka Jitsumori, President and CEO of EIZO Corporation. ''The insights Magnum provides about our monitors will contribute significantly to our continued ability to create innovative graphics solutions and simplify the usage experience within a creative workflow while delivering the most accurate color possible.''
