Eizo CG277 overview

  • 1Description

The ColorEdge CG277 27" Hardware Calibration IPS LCD Monitor from EIZO features a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440, an enhanced 1000:1 contrast ratio and 300 cd/m2 brightness. It also features DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D inputs that enable connectivity to various types of graphics boards.

The ColorEdge CG277 Monitor has a built-in SelfCalibration sensor which allows you to automate calibration. It also incorporates EIZO's patented Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) technology to ensure a Delta-E difference of 3 or less across the screen. Using the DisplayPort input, the monitor offers 10-bit simultaneous color display from a 16-bit LUT, which means it can present more than one billion colors simultaneously.

Designed for both soft proofing and digital device emulation, the bundled ColorNavigator software allows you to know how your clients will see color. The monitor also comes with a versatile stand that offers height, tilt and swivel adjustments as well as a portrait mode display.

Please Note: A graphics board and software supporting 10-bit output are also necessary for a 10-bit display.

Built-In Sensor for Simplified Maintenance

Built-In SelfCalibration Sensor
Automate your calibration with the built-in SelfCalibration sensor that is housed within the monitor's bottom bezel and swings up onto the screen only when calibrating. This sensor eliminates the need for a third-party calibration device and even operates in portrait mode. Using either the On-Screen Display menu or the bundled ColorNavigator software, you can schedule the monitor to self-calibrate at specific times. Even if the monitor is switched off or not connected to a computer, it will stick to its preset schedule and self-calibrate.
Correlation with External Sensors
The ColorEdge CG277 Monitor can be correlated to the measurement results of an external calibration sensor. After correlating, the built-in sensor will automatically recalibrate to the settings. This is convenient if the monitor is used in a work environment with other monitors and one measurement device must be used as a standard for all calibration.

Enhanced Color Accuracy

Reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB Color Space
An IPS panel with a wide color gamut reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB color space so images shot in RAW can be converted to Adobe RGB or images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. The wide color gamut also ensures that the monitor reproduces almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK color spaces used in printing as well as 93% of the DCI used in post production.
Excellent Tone Display in the Dark
When viewing the screen from an angle in a dimly lit room, dark tones typically appear washed out due to the display characteristics of LCD backlights. The monitor maintains a high contrast ratio even from an angle which allows the dark tones to retain their depth.
Non-Glare IPS Panel
The IPS (in-plane switching) panel exhibits no glare and allows several people to view the monitor with minimal color shift.
LED Backlight Cuts Power by 40%
The LED backlight reduces energy consumption by 40% compared to a conventional backlight. It is also mercury-free for less impact on the environment when it is disposed of.
Brightness Modulation Minimizes Flicker
To counteract the flicker that is noticeable by some users at low brightness settings, EIZO uses PWM (pulse width modulation) technology to help reduce eye fatigue.

Features for Creative Work

Uniformity from Corner to Corner
Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity on different parts of the screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. To counteract this, the monitor incorporates EIZO's patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology to ensure a Delta-E difference of 3 or less across the screen when the monitor leaves the factory. DUE also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating ambient temperature may have on color temperatures and brightness to ensure stable image display.
Individually Adjusted at the Factory
The 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 to 255, then using the monitor's 16-bit look-up table (LUT) to select the 256 most appropriate tones to achieve the desired value.
Stable Display within Seven Minutes of Startup
From the time it is turned on it typically takes 30 minutes or longer for a monitor's brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilize. EIZO has shortened this warm-up time by more than 75% to 7 minutes.
10-Bit Simultaneous Display
Using the DisplayPort input, the monitor offers 10-bit simultaneous color display from a 16-bit look-up table which means it can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This is 64 times as many colors as you get with an 8-bit display which results in even smoother color gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors.
A graphics board and software which supports 10-bit output are also necessary for 10-bit displays

Simple and Precise Calibration with ColorNavigator

ColorNavigator Software
The bundled ColorNavigator software makes calibration both simple and quick. Just input target values for brightness, white point and gamma. The built-in sensor directly utilizes the monitor's LUT and creates an ICC profile within minutes.
Predictable Color with Any Media
With content published on so many types of printed and digital media, it's critical to know how your clients will see color. Designed for both soft proofing and digital device emulation, the bundled ColorNavigator software allows you to do just that. So now you can "predict" how color will appear to your clients, whether you produce content for printed media like books and magazines or for digital media devices like tablets, smart phones and notebook computers.

Comfort and Convenience

Multiple Inputs
DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D inputs are included and support resolutions up to 2560 x 1440. The HDMI input also offers direct connection with digital cameras. Two USB upstream ports allow two computers to be connected at once so it's not necessary to reconnect the USB cable when using the ColorNavigator software and switching between the two computers.
Smooth Display of Video
For video editing or post-production work, an overdrive circuit is included to reduce the gray-to-gray response time to 6 ms and ensure that moving images look clean and sharp with minimum ghosting.
Adjustable Stand
Adjust the screen to the most comfortable angle and reposition it to show your work to a colleague or client. The monitor comes with a versatile stand that offers height, tilt and swivel adjustments as well as portrait mode display.
Shading Hood for Portrait and Landscape Modes
The monitor comes bundled with a unique hood that is designed for portrait mode as well. Now you can keep the glare off your screen no matter which mode you work in.

Ideal for Video Editing and Post Production

Preset Color Modes
A button on the front of the monitor provides quick access to several broadcast-standard color modes reset color modes: Rec. 709, EBU, SMPTE-C, and DCI. In addition, sRGB and Adobe RGB modes are also available.
Input Support for 4K x 2K
This EIZO monitor accepts 4K x 2K resolutions of 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160 at up to 30 frames/second via the DisplayPort input then downscales them to its native resolution of 2560 x 1440. This added functionality makes the ColorEdge CG277 a practical choice for editing when working with 4K x 2K resolutions used in digital television and digital cinematography.
1080/24p Playback
Film is usually shot at 24 frames/second and looks unnatural when played back on a typical monitor that displays 60 frames/second. The HDMI input supports a video signal display rate of 1080/24p frames-per-second so you can edit the film as it was meant to be viewed.
3D LUT for Accurate Color Display
A 3D LUT is included which adjusts colors individually on an RGB cubic table. With the bundled ColorNavigator software's emulation function, the 3D LUT applies a film look to the image so creators can check how it will be viewed by their audience. The 3D LUT also improves the monitor's additive color mixture (combination of RGB), which is a key factor in its ability to display neutral gray tones.
LED Buttons and On-Screen Button Guide
For dimly lit work environments like post production studios, the monitor comes with backlit control buttons an on-screen button guide to indicate what each button is for.
Safe Area Marker
A safe area marker designates the area of the screen that will be displayed when the monitor is connected to a particular device. This allows you to check that subtitles and other text will be visible. The color of the marker is changeable to ensure it remains with any imagery.


FograCert Softproof Monitor
The ColorEdge CG277 is recognized by Fogra as a Class A FograCert Softproof Monitor. Using the CG277 in a FograCert Softproofing System ensures designers, print specifiers, and print producers can rely on the soft proof for predictable and consistent results.
No Power Consumption When Turned Off
When the monitor is turned off via the power button on its front bezel, it consumes no electricity.

    Eizo CG277 reviews

    ColorEdge CG277 27" Hardware Calibration IPS LCD Monitor is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best monitor I've ever owned I am a professional head shot and portfolio photographer working with many well know actors and models in LA. Skin tones and colors are of most importance to me. In the past I had been using Lacie 321 and 324i monitors which are very good. I compared both monitors side by side for a week with hundreds of images from all of my cameras. I am amazed how much more accurate the colors were on the Eizo. The black levels and highlights also completely blew the Lacies away. In my studio I always shoot with a grey card, color checker and use a light meter. I also edit in an 18% grey room with proper ambient lighting. I edit with photoshop and Capture One. This is the best monitor I have ever used in 30 years period. The CG277 is so easy on the eyes which is also a huge plus as I spend a minimum of 4 hours a day editing. I also did a side by side comparison with this monitor to the Eizo CS270 monitor which is less than half the price of the CG277. They both use the same panels but the CG277 has a better anti glare finish and a built in calibrator. The reasons I went with the CG277 are the built in calibrator was more accurate than the external Spyder calibrator and the the black levels were noticeably better. Also the CG277 in a dark room showed significantly less light bleed both on and off axis.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Monitor for Photographers As a photographer I use this monitor daily to edit my images. The fact that it has built-in color calibration is the main reason I purchased it and it has not disappointed. The monitor itself is very high quality and works perfectly with my Mac Pro. I used a 30 Mac Cinema Display for the past 8 years. While I love the size of the Mac monitor, it does not compare in color and resolution to the Eizo. The only con I have in regard to the Eizo is the shade. It was difficult to install and is very poor quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product! Since I've received the monitor, I noticed how powerfull the quality of the image I produce start to be... It is true that, what you see on the screen it is what you have in printing, with the best final results for my clients and my job. It is very friendly and I like the ergonomics when working in both, vertical and horizontal way, which is great when processing in long journeys. It is great how easy you can handle it once on your work station, no matter its weight. In regards of technical quality, I am Mac user and I don't see a difference with the 8-10 bits issue, which it is great, too.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worthwhile upgrade My experience was initially impacted by the B&H staff that assisted me and with their prompt shipping, the monitor actually arrived a day earlier than predicted.I use the monitor primarily for photo editing with top of the line programs such as DxO Pro, Photoshop etc.etc. This monitor maximizes the various programs powers to the point that they become even more useful and enjoyable to use.The automatic self calibration feature is a time saver and can also be considered a money saver if you price out the various 3rd party calibrators that are available. For this level of precision you can expect to pay up to an additional $. There is also the savings you realize in paper and ink as the proofing process becomes much more reliable.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ULTIMATE professional monitor! I bought this monitor to replace my aging Apple HD Cinema 30 display. While my old display was beautiful to look at, it wasn't up to the task for color rendering and soft proofing. Now with the my new CG277, the color rendering for both sRGB and Adobe RGB are accurate. Goodbye wasted time and prints! Plus with the self-calibration built-in and performed on a weekly schedule, I can do what I love without worry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect monitor for a photographer If I were not a professional photographer who depends upon my images being post-processed and printed correctly, I would not spend this much money on a monitor. But the results I have seen (and the confidence that I have in my post production process) is very good and it is a direct result of the monitor.Let me back track a bit. I used to have an iMac and used my iProfile calibration method to do everything. Subsequently I traded up to a Mac Pro and had to think about the monitor to buy. After researching, I discovered the Enzo monitor and meditated on it for a month. I did pull the trigger and have not regretted it ever since.I appreciate the non-glossy display and the 99% display of the RGB spectrum. And I feel that my end results are much more true a display of how my customers will see things.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Backlight I ordered a monitor, the backlight spill was terrible, red and green and vignetting on the edges when looking at dark images. I ordered a replacement, it arrived with the same issues. I've never seen such a bad backlight even in an inexpensive monitor. I'm not the type to return a monitor for a bad pixel, but this backlight is unacceptable especially for such an expensive monitor. Without the backlight problem it would be a 5 star review. Eizo is supposed to contact me to resolve this.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the one to have! I was looking to step up my game in the photo editing department, so after spending considerable time researching the possibilities I decided to invest in this monitor. I need a good monitor mainly for editing photos in Photoshop and other editing software. Previously I was using a 1920x1200 native-resolution monitor, so I was missing out on seeing the photographs I edit in a larger size, not to mention the issues with color calibration.This monitor does it all. Press the button on the built-in menu for color calibration and a small widget pops up in front of the screen to start the calibration process. The screen goes dark except for a small area that flashes different colors in front of the widget, measuring screen output (and ambient light if you leave the lights on in the room). I followed the manufacturer's recommendations for selecting 80cd/m2 brightness, though the monitor is capable of much brighter colors (300 cd/m2). The 80 cd/m2 level seems fine in a dimly-lit or dark room. You can also select (via the menu on the monitor) various color profiles for the monitor (Adobe RGB etc.), among other parameters. This is a much easier, convenient (and likely more accurate) process than using a Color Spyder or other color calibration techniques. Incidentally, the hood for this monitor has a sliding panel on top in case you choose to use a hanging Color Spyder or other hardware.I did have to upgrade my computer video card to display this monitor's native 2560x1440 resolution, since though the HP computer I have is fast at 3.4ghz with 16gb of ram, the onboard video card was sub-par and not capable of the higher resolution. A couple of I.T. buddies recommended I get NVIDIA graphics, so about $ dollars later I got a PNY brand card with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 chipset, which runs 2560x1440 resolution. It was easy enough to set up (as long as you plug in the DVI to the right DVI plug on the card, oops), but beware installing a video card that exceeds the power supply requirement shown on the box -- generally the better the card the bigger the power supply required inside the computer. Mine already met the 400 or 450 watt requirement, so I was okay.I am very happy with the new combination of video card & monitor. The display is even, with a uniform display and no blotching on the screen.I would have bought a bigger Eizo but as I write this, according to the Eizo web site the 27 is the flagship of the Eizo Color Management Monitor (CG) series.
