Eizo intros HDR reference monitor with built-in calibration

Eizo is now shipping the ColorEdge Prominence CG3146, a 31.1-inch, DCI-4K (4096×2160) HDR reference monitor for post and color grading workflows. It is the successor model to Eizo’s flagship HDR reference monitor, the ColorEdge Prominence CG3145, and is the first to incorporate a built-in calibration sensor. Hardware calibration ensures the screen stays color-accurate over time and streamlines color management.

Like its predecessor, the ColorEdge Prominence CG3146 correctly shows both very bright and very dark areas on the screen without sacrificing the integrity of either. The monitor achieves 1000 cd/m2 (typical) high brightness and 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio for true HDR display.

The ColorEdge Prominence CG3146 supports HLG (hybrid log-gamma) and the PQ (perceptual quantization) curve for displaying and editing broadcast, film and other video content in HDR. The optimized gamma curves render images to appear truer to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR.

The color and brightness of an LCD monitor can shift due to changes in ambient temperature and the temperature of the monitor itself. The ColorEdge Prominence CG3146 is equipped with a temperature sensor for accurately measuring the temperature inside the monitor and for estimating the temperature of the surrounding environment. With this temperature-sensing and estimation technology, the monitor adjusts in real time, so gradations, color, brightness and other characteristics continue to be displayed accurately.

Eizo uses artificial intelligence in the monitor’s estimation algorithm so it can distinguish between various temperature-changing patterns to calculate even more accurate correction. Eizo’s patented digital uniformity equalizer technology also counterbalances the influence that a fluctuating temperature might have on color temperature and brightness for stable image display across the screen.

Eizo intros DCI-4K reference monitor for HDR workflows

Eizo will be at NAB next week demonstrating its ColorEdge Prominence CG3145 31.1-inch reference monitor, which offers DCI-4K resolution (4096×2160) for pro HDR post workflows.

Eizo says the ColorEdge Prominence CG3145 can display both very bright and very dark areas on the screen without sacrificing the integrity of either. The monitor achieves the 1000cd/m (typical) high brightness level needed for an HDR content display. It can achieve a typical contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 for displaying true blacks.

The ColorEdge Prominence CG3145 supports both the HLG (Hybrid Log-Gamma) and PQ (Perceptual Quantization) curves so post pros can rely on a monitor compliant with industry standards for HDR video.

The ColorEdge Prominence CG3145 supports various video formats, including HDMI input compatible with 10-bit 4:2:2 at 50/60p. The DisplayPort input supports up to 10-bit 4:4:4 at 50/60p. Additional features include 98 percent of the DCI-P3 color space smooth gradations with 10-bit display from a 24-bit LUT (look-up-table) and an optional light-shielding hood.
The ColorEdge Prominence CG3145 will begin shipping in early 2018.

In addition to the new ColorEdge Prominence CG3145 HDR reference monitor, Eizo currently offers optional HLG and PQ curves for many of its current CG Series monitors. The optimized gamma curves render images to appear more true to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR. This HDR gamma support is available as an option for ColorEdge CG318-4K, CG248-4K, CG277 and CG247X. Both gamma curves were standardized by the ITU as ITU-R BT.2100. In addition, the PQ curve was standardized by SMPTE as ST-2084.
