Professional Color Quality with Precision Calibration
Professionals doing high quality digital imaging in fields such as graphic arts, photography and printing
require a monitor with superior color accuracy and color management capabilities. The EIZO ColorEdge
CG series offers three monitors that perform to the highest standards. With different sizes, resolutions
and functions to meet varied needs, they all provide total assurance of color accuracy because each unit is
individually calibrated at the factory. They also come supplied with EIZO’s proprietary ColorNavigator™
software, which utilizes a 10- or 12-bit Look-Up Table for fast calibration of brightness, color temperature
and gamma. As a result, you enjoy the benefits of soft proofing and on-screen color checking for a more
efficient workflow, as well as the convenience of a slim-profile monitor.

Each ColorEdge
monitor is adjusted to
a gamma level of 2.2.
This is accomplished
by measuring the R, G,

from 0 – 255, then using the monitor’s 10-bit

Integrated Circuit) and incorporated it into the ColorEdge CG221.
This ASIC has a 12-bit look-up table (LUT) with an extensive palette
of 4,081 grayscale tones for each R, G, and B, and internal calculation accuracy of 16-bits (64 times more accurate than 10-bit internal
calculation).
16-bit Processing
The CG221’s 16-bit internal calculation produces grayscale rendering that is on a par with high-end CRT
monitors. The result is not only a much greater degree of
detail in dark areas, but overall uniformity of brightness and color
throughout the entire screen. (The CG210 and CG19 have 14-bit
internal calculation.)

Brightness and Color Uniformity with 12-Bit LUT
Achieving uniform levels of brightness and color across the
screen has been all but impossible with LCD monitors. To correct
this problem, EIZO has developed an ASIC (Application Specific
The ColorEdge CG210 provides built-in support for portrait mode
with EIZO’s exclusive ActiveRotation II technology. The monitor
includes a gravity sensor, so it “knows” when it is being rotated, and
changes between portrait and landscape modes accordingly. Because it
is hardware-based, ActiveRotation II does not absorb CPU power or
compromise graphics performance. It supports Macintosh OS 9/X and
Windows 2000/XP platforms.
Graphics board support for ActiveRotation II varies by manufacturer and model.
With some graphics boards, it may be necessary to change the resolution on the PC
side or restart the computer after rotating the screen. For details on graphics board
support, please see www.eizo.com/support/compatibility/
SWOP Certification
The ColorEdge CG210 is part of the SWOP-certified
Remote Director — a monitor-based proofing system
from Integrated Color Solutions, Inc. SWOP certification
means graphics professionals can use this system in place
of hardcopy proofs and perform all color checks on-screen.
5-Year Warranty
EIZO and its authorized distributors offer a five-year
limited warranty for all ColorEdge monitors.

The Software: Extensive Calibration Capabilities
Simple and Precise Calibration
Post-Calibration Color Adjustment
The EIZO-developed ColorNavigator software makes calibration both simple and accurate. Instead of having to judge colors and
do time-consuming inputting, or having a specialist do it for you, all
you need to do is input target values for brightness, white point and
gamma. ColorNavigator works with a wide range of measurement
devices to directly utilize the 12- or 10-bit LUT of ColorEdge monitors
for accurate and reliable calibration in minutes.
Sometimes due to variations in
output from different printers or the
special requirements of a project, it
is necessary to fine-tune an otherwise
perfectly calibrated monitor to match
target colors. ColorNavigator lets you
easily adjust hue and saturation for

magenta and yellow), as well as white
balance, brightness, black level and gamma, to achieve the closest possible visual match. For confirmation of calibration results or to achieve
more accurate manual adjustments, a test pattern screen can now be
displayed. The test pattern screen shows a full grayscale ramp as well
as just the low tones (blacks), high tones (whites), and gamma values.
The results of all manual adjustments are immediately reflected on the
test pattern screen.

‡
With the CG19, choosing “6-Color Adjustment” after calibrating will disable the black level function
and gamma will only be adjustable from 1.8 to 2.6 in increments of 0.2.
Ambient Light Measurement
ColorNavigator can be
used to measure the ambient
light environment and automatically set it as the monitor’s
white point calibration target.
Especially helpful when there is no light box to view a proof or when
the light box’s white point is not precisely on target, it ensures that the
monitor’s white point matches that of the ambient light environment
for an accurate comparison between the hard (printed) and soft proofs.
As of March 2006, this function is supported by GretagMacbeth Eye-One series
measurement devices only (excluding Eye-One Monitor/Display).
id3_135473_単.indd 4
ColorNavigator
also makes it easy to
keep track of calibration profiles. When
you want to adjust
a profile in order to
match your monitor
to other equipment
such as printers or
light boxes, you can
use the Duplicate
function to make a copy of it, then adjust the duplicate profile and give
it a new name. Naturally, you can make as many duplicates, and thus
adjusted profiles, as desired.
After initial calibration, a monitor needs to be recalibrated at
regular intervals to maintain color accuracy. ColorNavigator includes
a recalibration reminder that will appear after a certain number of
user-determined hours. When the monitor is first calibrated, the date
and time are saved. After the time you set has elapsed, an LED on the
front panel lights up, and a reminder message appears the next time
ColorNavigator starts up. If you prefer to calibrate according to the
amount of change that has occurred, you can measure the color difference (Delta-E) between the original target points and the actual current
points at any time.
