EIZO has released the ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146, a 31.1-inch, DCI-4K (4096 x 2160) HDR (high dynamic range) reference monitor for the professional post production and color grading workflow.
The successor model to EIZO’s flagship HDR reference monitor, the ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145, the new monitor is the first to incorporate a built-in calibration sensor.
Like its predecessor, the ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 correctly shows both very bright and very dark areas on the screen without sacrificing the integrity of either – a process which cannot be achieved with SDR (standard dynamic range) monitors. The monitor achieves 1000 cd/m2 (typical) high brightness and 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio.
The ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 adds to its predecessor’s resume by being the first true HDR reference monitor to incorporate a built-in calibration sensor. EIZO utilized its experience in hardware calibration solutions to integrate its calibration technology into its now highest spec HDR model. Hardware calibration ensures the screen stays color accurate over time and streamlines color management.
Furthermore, with EIZO’s ColorNavigator 7 color management software, users can regularly calibrate and quality control their monitor quickly. Users can calibrate all color modes simultaneously, setup regular recalibration intervals, and maintain quality control in multi-monitor environments, all with a single software application.
EIZO claims that the ColorEdge PROMINENCE are the first HDR reference monitors to overcome the drawbacks of other HDR technologies available to the market – ABL (Auto Brightness Limiter) and local dimming.
The ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 supports HLG (hybrid log-gamma) and the PQ (perceptual quantization) curve for displaying and editing broadcast, film, and other video content in HDR.
The color and brightness of an LCD monitor can shift due to changes in ambient temperature and the temperature of the monitor itself. The ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 is equipped with a temperature sensor for measuring the temperature inside the monitor, as well as estimating the temperature of the surrounding environment. With this temperature sensing and estimation technology, the monitor adjusts in real time, so gradations, color, brightness, and other characteristics continue to be displayed accurately. Furthermore, EIZO uses AI (artificial intelligence) in the estimation algorithm of the monitor so it can distinguish between various temperature changing patterns to calculate even more accurate correction. EIZO’s patented digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) technology also counterbalances the influences that a fluctuating temperature may have on color temperature and brightness for stable image display across the screen.
