The ColorEdge CG247X is equipped with all of the advanced features of EIZO’s CG Series lineup of professional color management monitors with many improvements over its predecessor. The monitor’s wide color gamut faithfully reproduces 98% of the DCI-P3 standard used in digital cinema, an increase from 95% with the previous model. Preset modes for EBU, Rec. 709, SMPTE-C, and DCI also ensure editors can work in the appropriate color spaces and gamma values. Switching between modes is easily done via the buttons on the front of the monitor. In addition, the buttons are LED-backlit for easily seeing in dimly-lit studio environments.
The monitor’s contrast ratio was also increased from 1000:1 to 1500:11, producing true blacks that are otherwise difficult to display on typical LCD monitors. The ColorEdge CG247X is also equipped with a retardation film which allows dark tones to retain their depth even when viewed from an angle.
The monitor comes with a light-shielding hood that effectively prevents glare on the monitor’s screen caused by ambient lighting. The hood is newly designed and attaches to the monitor magnetically. This allows users to attach the hood quickly and easily without needing to connect separate parts
