Upplands Väsby, Sweden, March 13, 2009 – Eizo Europe AB (“EIZO”) today introduced the ColorEdge CG232W, a full high-definition 22.5-inch LCD monitor for broadcast and post-production that can be used for both reference and editing work.

The ColorEdge CG232W is the first monitor for post-production and broadcasting to offer this dual functionality. Studio professionals can now conduct all their work on one monitor whereas they previously needed both a master monitor for reference (playback) and a desktop monitor for editing. This delivers significant cost savings while eliminating the problem of trying to match colors between different monitors.
The ColorEdge CG232W comes with multiple input support including BNC × 2 (SD-SDI/HD-SDI × 2 or dual-link SDI × 1), DVI-D, and D-Sub to facilitate direct connection to broadcast and studio sources as well as desktop PCs.
The monitor uses a high-quality IPS (in-plane switching) panel with a native resolution of 1920 × 1200, a wide color gamut, and 176° viewing angles. The wide color gamut allows the ColorEdge CG232W to reproduce color spaces used in broadcasting such as PAL/SECAM, SMPTE-C, and HDTV.
A 3D LUT (look-up table) features previewing of how color will be reproduced on the final film print. 10-bit simultaneous display means more than 1 billion colors can be shown on the screen at once. This is 64 times the colors supported by standard 8-bit display and virtually eliminates color and grayscale banding.
16-bit internal processing produces smooth display of grayscale tones. This brings out a high level of detail, especially in dark areas of an image which are typically problematic for LCD monitors to display.
To counteract the brightness and chroma uniformity errors that are characteristic of all LCD panels, EIZO has equipped the ColorEdge CG232W with its Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) function. DUE ensures that the entire screen will be practically uniform at each gray level from 0 to 1,023.
EIZO’s ColorNavigator calibration software is bundled with the ColorEdge CG232W and allows for setting the target values for brightness, white point, and gamma. ColorNavigator works with a measurement device to directly utilize the monitor’s 3D LUT for accurate hardware calibration in less than five minutes.
To ensure optimum colors straight out of the box, EIZO calibrates each unit of the ColorEdge CG232W at its factory in Japan to produce a gamma curve of 2.2. An adjustment certificate is included in the packaging to verify the results.
· A panel display frame rate of 120 Hz eliminates motion artifacts or “judder” for smooth video playback.
· Preset color modes for Rec. 709, EBU, SMPTE-C, DCI, and sRGB which can be accessed at the touch of a button.
EIZO stands behind the workmanship of the ColorEdge CG232W with an industry leading five year warranty*.
The ColorEdge CG232W will begin shipping in February 2009. For information about availability and pricing please contact the EIZO subsidiary or distributor in your country for details.
