The new EIZO ColorEdge CS2740 offers the EIZO quality in an accessible 27-inch monitor versatile for photos, video editing, design, and other types of creative work in resolutions up to 4K.
Announced last October and presented as a new solution to make “video production comfortable”, the EIZO ColorEdge CS2740 takes the place of the ColorEdge CS2730, offering more pixels, 10-bit input and more connections in what the company says is as an easy-to-use 27-inch 4K UHD high resolution display, which combines large production space and compactness.
The ColorEdge CS2740 is one of the monitors EIZO would show at NAB 2020, as well as other events, but due to the COVID-19 outbreak, those shows were cancelled or postponed. Still, the monitor is now being shipped, so look for information regarding your contru if this is a solution that suits your needs.
With the release of the ColorEdge CS2740, a 27-inch, 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) monitor for creative work, complete with USB Type-C connectivity, EIZO expands its CS series. The ColorEdge CS series is a range of monitors that include many of the advanced features of EIZO’s professional ColorEdge CG series, while also meeting the varying needs and budgets of hobbyists and prosumers.
Working area and toolbars
The ColorEdge CS2740 is the first in the CS series to implement 4K UHD resolution, which is four times the size of Full HD (1920 x 1080). The detail allowed ensures that high resolution content is displayed crisply. The monitor also boasts a pixel density of 164 ppi for 4K image display that has never looked smoother. Alphanumeric characters and contours are distinguished with excellent sharpness, so users can check even the finest details without needing to zoom in.
The resolution and screen size mean that users can fill the screen with both an area equal to A3, and the tools of the app being used. In fact, says EIZO, “the 27-inch screen provides ample space for easily displaying Full HD content in full, with enough space to show toolbars, palettes, and other windows or applications simultaneously. This makes the monitor versatile for photos, video editing, design, and other types of creative work in resolutions up to 4K.”
Effective for editing and checking video and photo
The monitor’s wide color gamut reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB color space, ensuring images are reproduced faithfully. To counter fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity characteristic of LCD monitors, EIZO’s unique digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) corrects deviations in every tone across the screen for stable display.
The ColorEdge CS2740 supports EIZO’s ColorNavigator 7 color management software, so users can regularly calibrate and quality control their monitor quickly and reliably for predictable color results. It also supports EIZO’s Quick Color Match software, which simplifies the screen-to-print color matching process in just a few steps.
Able to display 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) high resolution, the monitor supports 10-bit input (approximately 1,073,4 million colors) for richer color reproduction, meaning there is no gradation loss or color cast, making the ColorEdge CS2740 effective for editing and checking video and photo data. Users should note that 10-bit display requires a graphics board and software that support 10-bit output. Eizo also says that for 10-bit display with HDMI connection, Deep Color compatible device is required.
ColorEdge CS2740 is now shipping
The now common USB Type-C connectivity is present, and it allows the monitor to display video, transmit USB signals, and supply power (60 W delivery) to a connected device, such as a smartphone or notebook PC, using a single cable. Users can simply plug in and start getting creative without worrying about additional cable clutter.
