Eizo CS2420 and CG2420 displays are ready for color-critical work


— 10:08 AM on February 16, 2016

Eizo's a well-known name in the professional monitor arena, and its latest pair of monitors continue that tradition. Meet the ColorEdge CS2420 and CG2420.

These monitors have 1920x1200 IPS panels, which might seem like a rather bland specification at first glance. However, color and contrast are these panels' forte. The panels and circuitry on these monitors allow for 10-bit-per-pixel output using a 16-bit internal LUT. Those characteristics result in rather impressive color specifications for both models.

Let's start with the "lower-end" CS2420. This model has a 1000:1 static contrast ratio and covers 98% of the sRGB color space. Eizo also includes dedicated circuitry to ensure optimal color uniformity across the screen. The display's gamma curve comes calibrated from the factory, too. For users concerned with maximum accuracy under mixed lighting conditions, Eizo offers an optional shielding hood.

The CG2420 is an (even more) upscale model. This display has an impressive 1500:1 contrast ratio and can cover 99% of the DCI-P3 color space. This model includes its own retractable calibration sensor, built into the top edge of the screen. Eizo promises the equalization circuitry on this model ensures a Delta-E color variation of less than three across the whole screen. A shading hood is included in the box. The company says that the CG2420 will be color-accurate just three minutes after being powered up, too.

Both models come with calibration software and stands that allow for height, tilt and swivel adjustments. Input connectivity comes by way of DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI ports. As an added convenience, the monitors include USB 3.0 hub with three ports, one of which has dedicated charging circuitry.

Eizo will be selling the CS2420 and CG2420 soon. The company offers 5-year warranty coverage for these displays, as well as a 6-month zero-bright-pixel guarantee.
