Broadcast Monitor

Editing and Master Monitor
The ColorEdge CG232W meets the various demands of post-production, including color grading, image evaluation and nonlinear editing for broadcasting. A button on the monitor’s front bezel for switching between PC and SDI signals lets studio professionals do both video editing and reference (playback) on a single monitor.

Preset Color Modes
The ColorEdge CG232W, CG243W, CG245W, and CG275W offer preset color modes that reproduce the color spaces used in broadcasting and digital cinema such as EBU, SMPTE-C, Rec709 and DCI almost in their entirety. To correct color drift that naturally occurs over time with any LCD monitor, the bundled ColorNavigator software comes with a reset function for returning the preset modes to their factory settings.

Remote Control Console
For faster and more convenient adjustment of screen settings, a remote control console (sold separately) is available for the ColorEdge CG232W. Powered via a USB connection to the monitor, this console gives you one-touch access to frequently used settings such as brightness, gamma, color temperature, black level, RGB gain, and screen size. It includes a rotary wheel so you can quickly adjust settings to the desired level.

3D LUT for More Accurate Grayscale Display
All ColorEdge models incorporate a look-up table (LUT) for accurate color and grayscale rendering, but the ColorEdge CG232W, CG243W, CG245W, and CG275W utilize an EIZO-developed 3D LUT. While a typical 1D LUT adjusts color on separate tables for each of red, green, and blue, a 3D LUT accomplishes this using a single, mixed-color cubic table. This improves the monitors’ additive color mixture (combination of RGB), a key factor in their ability to display neutral gray tones.

10-Bit Video Support
The ColorEdge CG232W’s input support includes BNC × 2 (SD‑SDI/ HD-SDI × 2 or dual-link SDI × 1) for transferring uncompressed video signals, DVI-D, and D-Sub for direct connection to broadcast and studio sources as well as desktop PCs. YCbCr 4:2:2, YCbPr 4:2:2, YPbPr 4:4:4 and RGB 4:4:4 SDI signal formats are all supported. Several models come equipped with DisplayPort or Mini DisplayPort inputs so they accept 10-bit PC video signals and display 1.07 billion colors from a palette of 278 trillion. 10-bit video support enables these monitors to support 64 times the colors compared to standard 8-bit display, and minimizes color and grayscale banding.

2K × 1K Signal Support
The ColorEdge CG232W, CG275W, and CG303W support 2048 × 1080 signals which are compliant with the DCI standard. A left and right screen panning feature operated from the monitor’s on-screen display menu (OSD) allows viewing of all areas of an image with the CG232W.

Black Frame Insertion and Pseudo-Interlace
The ColorEdge CG232W’s panel display frame rate of 120 Hz allows for black screen insertion (pseudo-impulse), which virtually eliminates motion artifacts and blur when showing fast-paced moving images. With interlace signals, a pseudo-interlace feature minimizes motion artifacts, giving this LCD monitor smooth motion picture playback akin to that of a CRT.

Range Extension
A range extension feature with the CG232W, CG245W, and CG275W gives studio professionals the advantage of using the monitor’s entire 10‑bit grayscale range to see more detail when doing fine editing work in very dark and very light tones. Setting the screen to show the entire 10-bit grayscale range reveals either 6% or 14% more gray tones from 0 (true black) to 1023 (true white) compared to common broadcast signal display range capabilities.

Short- and Long-Term Brightness Stabilization
Stable brightness is a key factor in achieving accurate color. However, fluctuations in backlight brightness normally occur from startup and can last for up to two hours. Furthermore, changes in ambient temperature can cause brightness levels to fluctuate, as can the inevitable deterioration of the backlight’s fluorescent lamp over time. An EIZO patented backlight sensor detects and counteracts these influences so brightness is always stable and product life is extended.

Factory Adjustment of Gamma
Gamma level for each ColorEdge monitor is adjusted at the factory. This is accomplished by measuring the R, G, and B gamma values from 0 – 1023, then using the monitor’s 16-bit look-up table to select the 1024* (10 bits) most appropriate tones to achieve the desired value. Each monitor comes with an adjustment data sheet that certifies the measurement results of the gamma value.

Brightness and Color Uniformity with DUE
Brightness and chroma uniformity errors are characteristic of all LCD panels. To counteract this, EIZO has equipped these ColorEdge monitors with its latest integrated circuit. This circuit features a Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) function. DUE compensates brightness and chroma based on data measured at our factory so that the entire screen will be almost uniform at each gray level from 0 to 255. A certificate indicating the uniformity compensation results is packaged with each monitor.
