Eizo CG303W overview

  • 1Description

The ColorEdge CG303W 29.8" Widescreen LCD Computer Display from EIZO is a high-quality monitor that is built to the stringent standards required in color-critical environments. The display features a high 850:1 contrast ratio, a wide 178°/178° viewing angle, and a 12ms response time. It is capable of displaying 1.07 billion colors when used with a 10-bit display card.

The monitor is designed for use in environments where accurate color is essential. It features a factory calibrated gamma, a monitor hood, brightness stabilization, and ColorNavigator calibration software. It can be used in portrait or landscape orientation thanks to its pivot functionality, making it ideal for a many different design applications.

Work in Comfort with 30" of Screen Space
The 30" screen with its native resolution of 2560 × 1600 gives you more than twice as many pixels to work with as a 20 or 21 inch monitor with a 1600 × 1200 resolution. Open up your image editing applications and work in comfort without having to worry about your windows and palettes overlapping
Hardware Calibration for Better Color
ColorEdge monitors offer hardware calibration which means color settings are adjusted inside the monitor so there is no displayable loss of tonalities. This produces more predictable results and ensures color display is much more uniform between ColorEdge units
Simple and Precise Calibration with ColorNavigator
The bundled ColorNavigator software makes calibration both simple and quick. Just input target values for brightness, white point, and gamma. ColorNavigator works with a wide range of measurement devices to directly utilize the monitor's look-up table and create an ICC profile within minutes. What's more, you can always download the latest version of ColorNavigator for free here on eizo.com
Wide Color Gamut
The monitor reproduces 98% of the Adobe RGB color space so it can display most colors in a digital photo taken in Adobe RGB mode. Furthermore, it also has an sRGB mode to accurately reproduce colors in this narrower but commonly used color space, such as those seen on web pages or digital photos taken in sRGB mode
10-bit Simultaneous Display
The ColorEdge CG303W employs a 12-bit look-up table with a color palette of 68 billion colors from which the most appropriate 16.7 million (8 bits) are displayed. What's more, this monitor displays 10-bit color which is more than 1 billion colors shown simultaneously. This is 64 times greater than the 16.7 million colors of 8-bit display. The result is even smoother color gradations and noticeably reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors 1
16-bit Internal Processing
With most LCD monitors, the black level is usually too bright which leads to banding and washing out of dark grays. 16-bit internal processing allows the monitor to reproduce a high level of detail in dark areas
Flexible Screen Positioning
The stand lets you set the screen to the optimum viewing position with 82 mm height adjustment, 40° tilt, and 70° swivel. It also pivots 90° for changing to portrait mode
Brightness and Color Uniformity with DUE
Fluctuations in brightness and chroma on different parts of the screen is a common trait of LCD monitors. To counteract this, monitor incorporates a digital uniformity equalizer (DUE). DUE utilizes the monitor's 12-bit look-up table with an extensive palette of 4,081 grayscale tones for each R, G, and B, and internal calculation accuracy of 16-bits. This ensures a Delta-E difference of 3 or less across the screen (except in the corners) when the monitor leaves the factory
Factory Adjustment of Gamma
To ensure that each ColorEdge monitor produces the most accurate and consistent color gradations possible, EIZO carefully measures and sets every shade of R, G, and B from 0 to 255 on the production line with the monitor's 12-bit Look-Up Table, to produce a monitor gamma value of 2.2. Should the user prefer a different value, ColorNavigator software can be used to set the gamma value from a range of 1.0 up to 2.6 in increments of 0.1
Verification Documents Included
EIZO stands behind the quality of the ColorEdge series by including two verification documents with each monitor. One document verifies the uniformity on 25 points across the screen while the other certifies that all 256 color tones on the gamma curve were individually adjusted at the factory
Brightness Stabilization From the Minute You Turn It On
An EIZO-patented drift correction sensor quickly stabilizes the brightness level after startup or coming out of power saving mode. Furthermore, the monitor detects and compensates for brightness changes caused by surrounding temperatures and the passage of time
Color Vision Deficiency Simulation
To avoid creating inconveniences and even dangers for those with color vision deficiency, care must be taken when choosing color schemes for everyday items such as maps, road signs, web sites, and power indicator lights. This monitor can instantly simulate how still and moving images appear to people with two types of red-green (protanopia and deuteranopia) and one type of blue-yellow (tritanopia) color vision deficiency
Commitment to Quality
While outsourcing production is now common practice in the monitor industry, EIZO continues to manufacture its products the same way it has throughout its 40 year history - with its own staff at its own factories. This allows EIZO to keep close control over production quality and offer the industry's only 5-year manufacturer's limited warranty
Customer Assurance
A five-year warranty offers a long service life, and compliance with leading industry standards such as TCO Displays 5.0 and TÜV Ergonomics ensures a better working environment. It also fulfills Fogra's Monitor PreCert Class A criteria for monitors to be used in FograCert Softproofing Systems
