The CS2420 has a flexible base to adjust the height, tilt, and rotation and supports both portrait and landscape use. The monitor can be tailored to the user's needs. For example, he can set a sitting position that is ergonomic for him (e.g. lowered to the bottom) or a position to show clients and colleagues something on the screen.
EIZO microchip for optimised colour reproduction
The CS2420 has a high-quality microchip (ASIC, Application-Specific Integrated Circuit), which EIZO has developed specifically for the special requirements of colour-proof work. Thanks to their own algorithm, EIZO ASICs ensure a precise, uniform, and constant colour display.
Wide gamut – ideal for RAW images and prints
Those working with RAW or Adobe RGB images should look no further than our wide gamut monitor: the wide colour space reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB colour spaces. If pictures taken in RAW format are converted to Adobe RGB, the monitor will display them absolutely correctly. For example, you can see a shining blue sky or lush green forests that are true to nature – unlike monitors with sRGB colour space. The EIZO monitor also offers great benefits when printing: It covers almost the entire CMYK colour space (for example ISO Coated and U.S. Web Coated). You can already see on the screen how your subsequent print result will look, saving yourself proofs.
High resolution look-up table
Thanks to their 16-Bit look-up tables, the CS2420 monitor resolves image signals with an accuracy of 1/65-thousandth. In particular for deeper colour tones, nuances in colour and image structures are preserved. This reliable and precise rendering reduces the need for corrections and therefore shortens valuable production time.
Professional calibration with EIZO ColorNavigator
Good image editing can only take place with a well-calibrated monitor. The standard software calibration takes a long time and requires the user to have technical expertise. The CS2420 is delivered with the ColorNavigator hardware calibration software. It can be even be performed by users with no technical expertise in just a few steps. Advanced users can enter numbers for brightness, gamma, white point, and other calibration settings as target values. As the calibration uses the monitor's hardware, it takes place without losses and independently of the computer and graphics card. The CS2420 integrates perfectly into an existing system.
Constant tone value over the entire screen
Digital Uniformity Equaliser (DUE) controls all tone values over the entire monitor, pixel by pixel. The effect: colour tones appear identical at each point on the screen, without the brightness fluctuations you experience in conventional LCDs. The DUE function also balances out the effects of fluctuations in ambient temperature on the colour temperature and brightness. You will enjoy consistently even luminance distribution and perfect colour purity. A real plus when touching-up images.
One monitor, many ports
It doesn't get easier than this: You can connect most of your devices, such as PC, laptop or cameras directly to the monitor because the monitor hasa number of different ports. That makes your daily work easier.
10 bit colour depth: a billion colours in the finest grades
Thanks to the 10 bit colour display based on a 16 bit LUT, you can utilize a huge colour spectrum. This is made possible by the rapid DisplayPort and HDMI connections in combination with the frame rate control. A billion colours at your fingertips simultaneously. That is 64 times more colours than with an 8 bit display. The colour gradations are finer and the colour differences between adjacent colours are smaller. The enhanced greyscale range is equally important for post-production. With the 10 bit greyscale range activated, between 6% and 14% more greyscales are visible.
Lightning-fast colour mode changes
You can access colour modes from the monitor’s memory at the click of a button. Standards such as AdobeRGB, sRGB and the EIZO Paper Mode are preconfigured at the factory. There are also settings that you can calibrate yourself. Switching between modes takes mere seconds, and does not involve any delays caused by renewed calibration.
The IPS panel has optimal anti-reflection coating. Glare from the spread of the reflected light is minimised. This also protects your eyes from excess strain. In addition, this means the monitor provides a wide viewing angle without annoying reflections. This is particularly advantageous when several people are sitting in front of the screen.
Brightness levels in relation to the image signal vary from module to module in LCDs and therefore the colour mixture of red, green, and blue also varies. This can be exactly determined and controlled only with the aid of specific measuring devices. Therefore, EIZO configures the CS2420 and its colours and tone curves with a widespread network of grid points and in each primary colour. This results in a consistent colour temperature over the entire grey scale.
Calibration becomes quick, easy, and colour accurate with the ColorNavigator software: Calibration is accessed and stored directly on the look-up table in the monitor's hardware during calibration. You determine the corresponding components such as white point, gamma, brightness, and tone curve according to your needs. The calibration is then fully automatic and based on the factory adjustment and is therefore unique in terms of precision and speed.
Whether image processing, film and television production, prepress, or photography, whether for professional use or use at home – EIZO ColorEdge monitors impress with their exact and absolutely colour-accurate displays.
Homogeneous luminance distribution and good colour purity are key to achieving very accurate image rendering. The Digital Uniformity Equaliser (DUE) circuit takes care of this. It automatically corrects non-uniformities in terms of luminance and chrominance for all tone values across the entire image area – pixel by pixel.
When it comes to colour accuracy when working, how well a monitor can differentiate between colour tones is of fundamental importance. To achieve the maximum colour depth and prevent the formation of stripes, banding, and washing, EIZO relies on the ultimate perfection: a 16 bit look-up table (LUT) ensures precise colour resolution, meaning that even the finest structures in darker areas of the image are reproduced so that they are absolutely accurate in every detail.

Wide gamut designates a colour space that is considerably larger than the visible palette of conventional LCDs. Depending on the model, it covers up to 100% NTSC and 99% of the Adobe RGB colour space. The colours of these monitors bring about a realistic image quality that was previously impossible in LCDs.
