Eizo CG2730 overview

  • 1Description

When color accuracy is is of the utmost importance, the ColorEdge CG2730 27" 16:9 IPS Monitor from EIZO has the tools needed for color accuracy and consistency. This 27" widescreen display features a 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution complete with 99% coverage of the Adobe RGB color space and 98% coverage of the DCI-P3 color range. In addition to enhanced color accuracy, this IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel supports a 1500:1 static contrast ratio, 350 cd/m² brightness rating, a 16-bit look-up-table, 48-bit (3 x 16-bit) with approximately 278 trillion hues, and 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles.

Setup of the ColorEdge CG2730 monitor is simple as it comes equipped with DisplayPort, DVI-D, and HDMI inputs. Once connected, the display can be calibrated, to ensure improved color accuracy using the built-in color measurement device along the Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE), for true color representation from the center of the display all the way to the edges. To back up the color calibration capabilities of this display, EIZO has utilized their own microchip designed for precise and consistent color quality. This EIZO monitor also comes with a copy of ColorNavigator software and light protection shields.

Enhanced Image Quality
The CG2730 features clear graphics and structures as well as sharp text contours. Its IPS LCD panel offers enhanced contrast and hues that are independent of the viewing angle. The back lighting is achieved by using improved energy-saving LED technology.
EIZO Microchip for Enhanced Color Reproduction
The CG2730 is equipped with a high-quality microchip (ASIC, or Application Specific Integrated Circuit) that EIZO developed specifically for the special requirements involved in work demanding high color accuracy. The EIZO ASIC ensures precise, consistent, and lasting color display thanks to its special algorithms.
Compact, Space Saving Design
The sophisticated LCD panel has a very narrow border and is designed for a compact housing. Power supply and signal interfaces are unobtrusively integrated into the unit.
Wide Gamut
The gamut of the CG2730 includes up to 99.9% of the Adobe RGB colors. For example, it covers colors in offset printing at 100%. For this reason, the screen visibly shows which saturation has been achieved with cyan and yellow tones.
High-Resolution Look-Up-Table
Thanks to its 16-bit look-up table, the CG2730 can resolve image signals with an accuracy of 1/65 thousandths. Color nuances and image structure are not lost, particularly in the case of dark hues. This reliable and precise reproduction reduces calibration steps, saving valuable production time.
Consistent Hue Curve and Color
The brightness level of LCDs varies from module to module in relation to the image signal and the addition of red, green, and blue. This can only be recorded and corrected using special measurement devices. For this reason, EIZO configures each CG2730 at the factory with its colors and hue curve. This ensures that a consistent color temperature is attained throughout the entire grayscale range. The result: Color reproduction is balanced, precise, and reliable for the CG2730.
Integrated Measurement Device
The CG2730 achieves maximum color accuracy thanks to its integrated measurement device. This is automatically positioned for calibration and is concealed in the bezel until the next measurement. EIZO optimally calibrates each CG2730 and its integrated measurement device. This integrated solution eliminates production spreads, as can occur with external measurement devices. The fact that the measurement is carried out at the upper edge of the screen makes no difference, because the CG2730 is equipped with DUE and the sensor is correlated with the center of the screen.
Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE)
The DUE in the CG2730 ensures color purity and even brightness distribution across the entire display surface. A chip automatically adjusts for irregularities. While conventional LCDs are optimized at best for homogeneity of a white surface, every hue looks the same across the entire screen with EIZO. The DUE ensures precisely matching colors from the center right to the outermost edge of the screen, where the integrated sensor extends to measure and carries out the adjustment for the entire surface and all tonal values.
Exact Calibration
The ColorNavigator software (included in the delivery of the CG2730) has direct access to the monitor's lookup-table during calibration. This enables the user to set color temperature, brightness, blackness, and hue curve to suit their requirements. Calibration is based on the default set during production and is therefore unique in terms of precision and speed.
Self-Calibration
The CG2730 calibrates itself without requiring any user input. The computer does not even have to be turned on. Once programmed, the CG2730 starts the adjustment at night, during lunch, or at any other defined time. Programming takes place conveniently via the ColorNavigator or the on-screen menu.
Color Drift Correction
Temperature deviations can lead to imprecise color reproduction. Color deviations of more than 2 ΔE often arise, especially when the room temperature fluctuates. The CG2730 has an internal thermometer to eliminate these inaccuracies. It controls and reduces the unwanted color drift fully automatically.
Brightness Stabilization
Balanced brightness is crucial for brilliant color reproduction. Traditional LCD monitors need one to two hours to even out their brightness. However, even then, they are still sensitive to temperature deviations. The patented electronics of the CG2730 therefore regulate the backlight. They ensure constant brightness, regardless of the operating times and temperature.
True Black
Dark tones on LCD monitors in poorly lit rooms can appear blurry or too light depending on the viewing angle. True Black ensures a high contrast ratio at all times. This means that dark tones do not lose their depth on the CG2730.
Digital Inputs
DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D ports allow up to three computers to be connected at the same time. Users can switch between the interfaces automatically or manually. HDMI signals from HD cameras can be viewed directly on the CG2730 using the HDMI and DisplayPort ports.
USB Hub
An integrated USB hub (Ver. 3.0) is provided for the connection of peripheral devices. For example, a keyboard and mouse can be connected to the monitor. The CG2730 has two upstream ports, enabling devices connected to the monitor to be used alternately with two computers. One of the three downstream ports can be used as a high-speed battery charging port.
HDMI
The monitor offers the standard resolutions and image refresh rates for video production. HDMI signals (YUV and RGB) are supported with refresh rates of 60, 50, 30, 25, and 24 Hz. The monitor also features I/P conversion. The CG2730 can be conveniently used in video editing and animation systems, too.
10-bit Color Depth
The CG2730 has a DisplayPort and an HDMI port, in addition to the DVI interface. The ports have a 10-bit color resolution in combination with the frame rate control (FRC). The monitor can therefore display even the smallest of tonal gradations with a billion colors. However, you need to have the corresponding application software and graphics board that provide 10- bit support.

    Eizo CG2730 reviews

    ColorEdge CG2730 27" 16:9 IPS Monitor is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best option at the moment, some specs need improvement I am a photographer who uses Photoshop somewhat extensively and I upgraded to this model from a 27 Eizo CG276. I put upgraded in quotation marks as Eizo has changed their model line up and split each size class into two categories: a CG### (3 digits) and CG#### (4 digits). Their website makes it hard to understand the difference, but the future goal is that the 4-digit models, like this one, are slightly under spec-ed compared to the 3-digit models in exchange for a lower price tag of $200. The lower specs are (1) a slower gray to gray response time, this model is 13ms whereas the CG276 and CG277 are 6ms and (2) a slightly inferior built-in colorimeter which does not measure gray balance and is not capable of running a validation check. The marketing strategy is to sell the 3-digit models to people interested in both photo and video editing whom Eizo says are the only ones who need those additional features. I don't happen to agree and my dilemma was that I wanted a 27 or larger Eizo that (1) covered virtually all of Adobe RGB and DCI-P3 (new iPhones and iPads display in this color space), (2) had the increased contrast ratio (1500:1 claimed), and (3) was compatible with Eizo's new Quick Color Match Software. This is the only model for those, meaning I had to go from 6ms response time to 13ms. My workaround for the colorimeter downgrade is that I am using an external i1 Pro which is capable of validation. The good news is that the built-in colorimeter can also correlate to an external one like the i1. Ideally, Eizo would have updated their CG277 at the same time so that it provided an alternative to the CG2730. Despite all that, the monitor displays images well and I have been able to re-edit some images that I worked on previously with the CG276 and produced better results. I also have not noticed a difference with the response time change for watching videos (Youtube and Blu-Ray discs). As such, this is the best right now, but I'd like a CG278.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Poorly constructed first run. I got this monitor here in Toronto just this last weekend. After a lot of research I was very excited to get my hands on it! One of the first! Brought the display home, unboxed and set up with ease. Then came time calibrate the monitor with the included EX3 kit. Uh oh - all the ports along the side of the monitor were misaligned with the physical case of the display. It seems - during shipping that the inner USB ports became disconnected from the display; rendering them useless. I brought the screen back to where it was purchased immediately and the vendor was kind enough to offer me the 2nd and only other monitor in stock. To our surprise, the same issue was on the other monitor also. Pretty upset. Would buy it again but have to wait for the production to meet that hefty price tag.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Color Management monitor meeting all specs. I've been searching for a monitor mainly for still & motion picture editing. Coming from a Sony with glossy panel, it's difficult to find a display comparable in crispness & dark blacks. Initially, I purchased the CS2730 and was underwhelmed by its 'greyish' black and generally muted look. After half a year of market research, I decided to give the CG2730 w/ True Black panel a try. It is indeed in a class of its own. The CG2730 has one of the few panels currently capable of covering nearly all of DCI-P3 AND Adobe RGB gamuts. Profiled to Native (widest gamut), the impressive size of the coverage triangle (shown in picture) is visually evident in which it spans both aforementioned gamuts, and beyond. The monitor is also capable of working with gamuts wider than its capability (eg Rec. 2020) by emulating the color space via ColorNavigator, and can choose to either clip or remap un-displayable colors. The most important factor in choosing a wide-gamut monitor is its accuracy in controlling colors. The CN6 makes Color Management a breeze, even for a novice user. The UI is polished, UX is friendly and visually appealing. Although the panel is 8-bit+FRC calibrated using internal 16-bit 1D LUTs, I believe everything this monitor has demonstrated over the weeks of testing proved it should satisfy any graphic-related work, including video color grading and other post-production requirements. However, for front-end application such as live field monitoring, as EIZO suggested, one would benefit from the more expensive models incorporating multiple 3D LUTs. I'm the type of shopper who chooses a product not because it ticks all boxes, but rather because the product offers no reason to return it. With the CG2730, EIZO has perfected the ultra-wide-gamut monitor in a sleek housing. Made in Japan quality is evident all-over. I'd only suggest the finish of the plastic be more refined, providing better visual-appeal rightfully matching its high quality.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Eizo 27 is amazing! I was using what I thought was a good monitor, but I was having somewhat unpredictable results from my Canon Pro 10 printer using fine art papers. I consulted with Gil in the printing department at B&H the last time I was in New York. To make a long story short, I followed Gil's advice and purchased the Eizo and an Epson Printer for my fine art paper work. The difference working with this combination compared to results I was achieving before was in no way subtle! A new world of printing with fine art paper.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mine came defective The minute I connected Eizo USB cable which comes with the monitor it crashed Windows 10 Pro installation with a BSOD. Had to do a bare metal restore using my seven year old Viewsonic monitor. Bottom line for me is there is a manufacturing problem. I do note that one of the reviewers here didn't seem to have any problem but I don't know whether that person is using a Windows or Apple computer. I want this monitor but will wait to order again until I am convinced it will properly work out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Monitor This was a replacement monitor for the first one which was defective. I can not say enough about B&H great customer service. And Eizo technical support was also great. As to the monitor, it is in a class all by itself! I have had two Eizo monitors in the past and they are the best IMO. I realize Eizo monitors are quite pricey, but you get what you pay for.
