In response to the growing use of 4K2K resolution in digital television and digital cinematography, EIZO updates its ColorEdge CG276 monitor to include input support for 4K x 2K resolutions through a downscaling function. According to the monitor maker, all CG276 monitors manufactured as of (April 2013) come with downscaling capabilities. The display has a native resolution of 2560×1440.
With downscaling capabilities, the 27-inch display accepts 4K x 2K resolutions of 4096 x 2160 and 3840 x 2160 at up to 30 frames/second and will downscale them to its native 2560×1440 resolution. The monitor uses IPS LCD panel and offers 178/178-degree viewing angle, 97% Adobe color coverage, 320cd/m2 brightness, 1000:1 contrast ratio and 6ms response time.
Intended for graphics professionals, the color-critical monitor comes with built-in SelfCalibration Sensor, which is housed within the monitor’s bottom bezel and swings up onto the screen only when calibrating. It also sports ASIC chip for high-precision color processing to produce smooth color tones, and digital uniformity equalizer (DUE) for brightness and color uniformity.
The CG276 provides HDMI (up to 1920×1080 resolution), DisplayPort (up to 2560×1440), and DVI-D inputs. It has a 2-port USB 2.0 hub. A height-adjustable, tilt, swivel and pivot stand is included.
