Presented as the ideal choice of graphic monitors for aspiring and professional creatives, the ColorEdge CG2420 and CS2420 are 24.1-inch monitors with 1920 x 1200 resolution for use in various creative industries.

For any type of professional post production work, a monitor that accurately displays color to industry standards is an indispensable tool. ColorEdge’s family of monitors, from Eizo, offers a wide selection of monitors that meet a studio or broadcaster’s needs for both editing and reference monitors.

The new models feature a sleek new cabinet design with slim bezels which are 39% smaller than their predecessors’. A carrying handle is built-in for easily moving the monitor between locations or within the studio. The flat design uses electrostatic switches on the front bezel in place of traditional buttons for seamless access to monitor settings. The switches light up using an LED for viewing in dimly-lit work environments.

The ColorEdge CG2420 is the professional-level model monitor for use in photography, design, print, and post production. It features a built-in self-calibration sensor for hassle-free monitor maintenance that ensures optimal color reproduction and image consistency throughout the creative workflow. The ColorEdge CS2420 includes many of the advanced features of EIZO’s ColorEdge lineup while meeting the varying needs and budgets of hobbyists and prosumers that want to create, edit, and enjoy photography, illustration, and more.

Eizo bundles its proprietary ColorNavigator 6 software with both monitors for users that require a wide variety of calibration functionality. Users can select preset target values for photography, printing, and web design or set their own target values for brightness, gamma, and white point and generate an ICC profile. Because ColorNavigator 6 is proprietary software, Eizo has ensured it is compatible with a wide range of calibration devices from X-Rite, Datacolor, and other manufacturers.

The ColorEdge CG2420 and CS2420 feature a wide-gamut IPS (in-plane-switching) panel with a 1920 x 1200 native resolution. The wide gamut ensures 99% Adobe RGB coverage so photos of vibrant blue skies and lush green forests are reproduced faithfully in a way that monitors limited to the sRGB color space cannot display.

The ColorEdge CG2420’s panel also covers 98% of the DCI-P3 color space used in post-production, and is ready to work in just three minutes. While a typical monitor takes 30 minutes or more for its brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilize, the ColorEdge CG2420 takes a mere 3 minutes. Whether you are working in a studio or taking the monitor with you on location, you get reliable color display soon after turning the monitor on.

The ColorEdge CG2420 and CS2420 are already available in some markets. Date of availability varies by country, so contact the Eizo distributor in your country for details.
