Eizo kills it again at NAB 2017!
The Eizo team outdid themselves by unveiling the new ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 HDR, which was the talk of the NAB Show for display technology
This HDR reference monitor is the first to overcome the drawbacks of other HDR technologies, for more reliable post work. It supports both HLG and PQ gamma curves in order to display content that approximates the human perception of color and light, making it ideal for color grading in the HDR video workflow
We found it interesting that the built-in self-calibrating feature pioneered by Eizo is now finding it’s way into new 2017 displays from other well known manufacturers – a validation of how far ahead of the pack Eizo really is, when it comes to colour-critical display technology for our industry.
Ask about Annex Pro’s “try and buy” program (US and Canada) for evaluating any model of Eizo display!
ColorEdge Prominence CG3145
31.1″ (79 cm) HDR Reference Monitor
This HDR reference monitor is the first to overcome the severe drawbacks of other HDR technologies that are available in the market today so it can be used reliably for professional post production work. It supports both HLG and PQ gamma curves in order to display content that approximates the human perception of color and light, making it ideal for color grading in the HDR video workflow.
Features for Video Editing and Post Production
High Brightness and Contrast
ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 achieves the 1000 cd/m2 high brightness level needed for HDR content display. It also offers a typical contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 for displaying true blacks.
DCI 4K Resolution ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 displays the DCI-4K standard (4096 x 2160) which is more than four times that of full HD (1920 x 1080). It’s ideal for creating, editing, and referencing with 2D and 3D CGI, VFX, compositing, and color grading.
Centralized Color Management
ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 supports EIZO’s unique ColorNavigator NX quality control software. It offers quality control and asset management of client ColorEdge monitors. To suit the needs of a specific project, you can change the brightness, gamma, and white point settings of the monitor’s preset color modes and calibrate to the new values. The calibration information is saved directly to the monitor.
The monitor supports various video formats including HDMI compatible with 10-bit 4:2:2 at 50/60p. DisplayPort supports up to 10-bit 4:4:4 at 50/60p.
Wide Color Gamut
The wide gamut faithfully reproduces 98% of DCI-P3 and 80% of Rec. 2020 standards used in post production. This ensures the colors are reproduced according to industry standards.
10-Bit Simultaneous Display
With 10-bit simultaneous display* from a 24-bit look-up-table (LUT), ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This results in smooth color gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors.
With a single cable, the DCI-4K resolution at 60 Hz is supported by both DisplayPort and HDMI inputs.
The monitor comes bundled with a shading hood that effectively prevents glare on the screen caused by ambient lighting. The hood attaches magnetically for quick and easy setup.
In addition to the ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 HDR reference monitor, EIZO offers optional HLG and PQ curves for many of its current CG Series monitors. The optimized gamma curves render images to appear more true to how the human eye perceives the real world compared to SDR. These products will support the HDR workflow from shooting to color grading.
