EIZO Announces 4K UHD Monitor with 185 PPI for Photography, Print, and Video

EIZO Limited today announces the release of the new ColorEdge CG248-4K, a 23.8'' monitor


With a UHD ultra-CG248.jpghigh-definition 4K 3840 x 2160 native resolution for creative professionals who work with high-resolution content such as photography, print and video.

This latest addition to the EIZO ColorEdge 4K lineup will be unveiled alongside the new CG318-4K at The Photography Show The NEC, Birmingham from 21st March to 24th March on the EIZO stand B31

The ColorEdge CG248-4K features the highest pixel density yet in the ColorEdge lineup at an astonishing 185 ppi pixels per inch, making high-resolution image display smoother than ever. This allows professionals to display the high level of detail captured in 4K photographs with exceptional clarity. Alphanumeric characters and contours are also distinguished with excellent sharpness for the printing workflow.

The ColorEdge CG248-4K comes with a built-in sensor to enable self-calibration for hassle-free monitor maintenance. EIZO offers two dedicated calibration software programs, ColorNavigator 6 and ColorNavigator NX, that lets users set target values for brightness, gamma, and white point and generate an ICC profile. ColorNavigator 6 comes bundled with the monitor and is for individual users that require additional functionality such as manually adjusting the properties of a calibrated monitor.

For colour management of the ColorEdge CG248-4K and other select ColorEdge monitors on a network, EIZO also offers ColorNavigator Network, a secure, cloud-based web hosting solution for administrators to perform quality control QC tasks on client ColorEdge monitors with ColorNavigator NX installed. ColorNavigator NX is available as a free download from eizoglobal.com and is for organisations that want to centralise quality control of their monitors.

The ColorEdge CG248-4K uses an LED-backlit IPS in-plane switching LCD panel with a wide colour gamut that covers 99% of the Adobe RGB colour space. It also covers 100% of the Rec. 709, EBU, and SMPTE-C standards, as well as 77% of Rec. 2020 and 93% of the DCI used in post production to ensure faithful colour reproduction for a multitude of creative industries.

A typical monitor takes 30 minutes or more for its brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilise but the ColorEdge CG248-4K takes only three minutes, so professionals can count on reliable colour soon after turning the monitor on.

Accessible using the monitor's front keys, a 4K zoom function enlarges specific areas of the screen enabling photographers to quickly check details and focus accuracy in images.

The ColorEdge CG248-4K comes with a sleek new cabinet design that blends well within a working environment. It is as practical as it is aesthetically pleasing with LED backlit buttons for dimly-lit studios, a carrying handle and cable holder on the back, and three USB 3.0 downstream ports on the side. It also has an ergonomic stand with 150 mm height adjustment, 40 tilt -5 - 35, and 344 swivel as well as portrait mode capability.

For brightness and colour uniformity, EIZO uses its own Digital Uniformity Equaliser DUE technology. DUE ensures a Delta-E difference of three or less across the screen. It also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating ambient temperature may have on colour temperature and brightness.
