Eizo has announced the CS2730 and CG2730. These are two 27″ monitors intended for people who work in photography, graphic design and video editing. The ColorEdge CG2730 has a built-in calibration sensor.
The CS2730 and CG2730 both have a resolution of 2560×1440 pixels and an IPS panel that can display 99 percent of the Adobe RGB color spectrum. Eizo supplies the screens themselves already calibrated, whereby, among other things, the gamma curve is adjusted if necessary. The screens in the ColorEdge series also have a 16-bit look-up table, which can be used in conjunction with the ColorNavigator calibration software to adjust the color temperature, brightness, black level and tint curve.
Compared to the CS2730, the CG2730 includes a sensor that is integrated into the housing frame and extends out for automatic calibration. The sensor takes environmental influences such as light into account. The CG2730 has a contrast of 1500:1, with the CS2730 that is 1000:1. Both screens offer a maximum brightness of 350cd/m2 and the ports present are displayport, hdmi and dvi-d. In addition, two upstream and two downstream USB ports are provided.
The CS2730 will be available in September for 1118 euros, the CG2730 will follow in November for 1931 euros. Eizo optionally supplies a protective cover.
