The 4K monitor that gives you every detail with exceptional color accuracy.
The highest pixel density yet for the smoothest image display.
With the highest pixel density yet in our ColorEdge lineup at an astonishing185 ppi, 4K image display has never been so smooth. Now you can enjoy the exceptional detail in high-resolution photographs that cannot be reproduced with a standard monitor. Alphanumeric characters and contours are also distinguished with excellent sharpness for the printing workflow. The 4K ultra-high-definition (UHD) screen (3840 × 2160) is four times the size of full HD (1920 × 1080), making it ideal for high-resolution photography or as a reference monitor for 4K video creation.
Reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB Color Space
Reproduce the sky blues and lush greens that standard sRGB monitors cannot with the monitor's 99% Adobe RGB coverage. 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 covers 100% of the Rec. 709, EBU, and SMPTE-C standards as well as 93% of the DCI used in post production. Whether you are working with photo, video, or print, this monitor ensures faithful color reproduction for a multitude of creative industries.
Built-In Calibration Sensor
Automate your calibration with the built-in calibration sensor that eliminates the time and effort of an external calibration device. With the dedicated ColorNavigator 6 and ColorNavigator NX software, you can schedule the monitor to self-calibrate at specific times so you can always be sure that images are displayed with exceptional color accuracy. The monitor will stick to its preset schedule even if it is switched off or not connected to a computer.
Color Management Software
For individual users such as photographers that require multiple options for monitor profiling and print matching.
The high contrast ratio of 1000:1 produces true blacks that are otherwise difficult to display on a typical LCD monitor. The dark tones retain their depth even when viewing the screen from an angle in a dimly-lit studio.
Consistent Color Display with IPS Panel
A large screen monitor often exhibits color shift when viewed from an angle. With an IPS panel, more than one person can view the screen at once with little change in color or contrast.
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 CG248-4K 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 temperature and brightness to ensure stable image display.
10-Bit Simultaneous Display
With 10-bit simultaneous color display* from a 16-bit look-up table, the CG248-4K can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This is 64 times as many colors as you get with 8-bit display which results in even smoother color gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors.
*A graphics board and software which support 10-bit output are also necessary for 10-bit display. Equipment that supports Deep Color is necessary with the HDMI inputs.
3D LUT for Accurate Color Display
A 3D LUT is included which adjusts colors individually on an RGB cubic table. With the emulation function of ColorNavigator 6 and ColorNavigator NX, the 3D LUT applies a film look to the image so creators can check how it will be seen by their audience.
Stable Color in Just Three Minutes
A typical monitor takes 30 minutes or more for its brightness, chromaticity, and tone characteristics to stabilize. EIZO has shortened the warm-up time to a mere three minutes. Whether you are working in a studio or taking the monitor with you on location, you get reliable color display soon after turning the monitor on.
Individually Adjusted at the Factory
EIZO adjusts the RGB color characteristics of each monitor at its factory to eliminate variation and ensure smooth tonal display.
Save Thousands of Hours in Annual Maintenance
With ColorNavigator Network software, an administrator can centralize management of all CG248-4K and other ColorEdge monitors on a network. For example the administrator can self-calibrate, set color modes, register or edit asset management settings and other tasks whether the monitors are local or remote. This ensures that monitors always have the proper settings and saves hundreds or even thousands of hours in annual maintenance time.
Preset modes for EBU, Rec. 709, SMPTE-C, and DCI ensure you can work in the appropriate color spaces and gamma values. Simple select the preset via the buttons on the front of the monitor. With the built-in calibration sensor, you can adjust or maintain the brightness setting for each preset.
With a single cable, the UHD 4K resolution is supported at 60 Hz by both DisplayPort 1.2 inputs and at 30 Hz by both HDMI inputs.
4K Zoom Function
Enlarge areas of the screen to confirm small details and check focus accuracy in photos using the 4K zoom function. It is quickly and easily accessible using the monitor's front buttons.
Safe Area Marker
A safe area marker designates the area of the screen that will be displayed on any display device. This allows you to confirm that subtitles and other text will be visible. Available with HDMI inputs only.
Shading Hood Included
To prevent ambient light from reflecting off the screen, a shading hood that surrounds the top and left and right sides is bundled with the monitor.
A manufacturer's 5-year warranty covers all components including the LCD panel. EIZO can guarantee a long service life because it manufacturers its products at its own factories ensuring close control over production quality.
Brightness and Color Warranty
Brightness and color are warrantied for up to 10,000 hours from the date of production. The monitor must be used within the recommended brightness of 120 cd/m2 or less and the color temperature between 5000 - 6500 K.
