Eizo's new HDR monitor designed for post & color grading

CYPRESS, CA — Eizo (eizo.com) has released the ColorEdge Prominence CG3146, a 31.1-inch, DCI-4K (4096x2160) high dynamic range reference monitor. The CG3146 is designed for post production applications, including color grading.

As the successor Eizo’s flagship HDR reference monitor, the ColorEdge Prominence CG3146 is the company’s first to incorporate a built-in calibration sensor. The new model correctly shows both very bright and very dark areas on the screen without sacrificing the integrity of either. This is something that cannot be achieved with standard dynamic range monitors. The CG3146 achieves 1000cd/m2 (typical) high brightness and 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio for true HDR display.

Hardware calibration ensures the screen stays color-accurate over time and streamlines color management. With Eizo’s ColorNavigator 7 color management software, users can regularly calibrate and quality controls their monitor quickly and reliably. Users can also calibrate all color modes simultaneously, setup regular recalibration intervals, and maintain quality control in multi-monitor environments, all with a single software application.

Additional features include single-link 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI and dual- or quad-Link 3G/HD-SDI; VPID support for SDI connections; HDMI and DisplayPort inputs; 99 percent reproduction of DCI-P3; and 3D LUT for individual color adjustment on an RGB cubic table. A light-shielding hood is included, along with a five-year manufacturer’s warranty. The ColorEdge Prominence CG3146 will begin shipping this month.
