What are the benefits of the integrated calibration sensor?

An integrated calibration sensor governs the maximum color accuracy. It positions itself automatically for calibration and then conceals itself in the safety of the casing until the next measurement is taken. Each monitor is exactly coordinated using its sensor. For example, the measurement location is correlated with the middle of the image at the upper edge of the image so that the sensor takes measurements as if it were in the middle of the image. This integrated solution rules out the variability, which may arise when using external measuring devices. Even the influences of ambient light are determined when initiating the sensor and considered during calibration.

How can I calibrate my EIZO ColorEdge monitor?

The EIZO ColorNavigator software can be used to calibrate and profile ColorEdge-LCD monitor hardware. IMPORTANT: Please do not use an alternative calibration software, which may not be able to use the hardware function of ColorEdge LCD monitors.

What can I do if deep black and dark tones tend to be displayed too brightly?

If the video signal has a limited color depth in the range of 16-235 instead of 0-255, black areas of the screen may appear gray. If colors are not displayed correctly, this may be down to the so-called YUV format. This problem can be resolved by adjusting the color space.

What is the Smart Detection function for?

Smart Detection automatically recognizes where on the screen a game or video window is located and applies Smart Insight and Smart Resolution to these areas in a targeted way.

Smart Resolution is a patented EIZO technology that inspects the screen content for noise and blurring. Smart Resolution prevents noise from increasing and enhances the image by adjusting for blurring. For example, in the case of a game, Smart Resolution can resharpen the image so that it appears brighter. When it comes to other content, such as photos and websites, Smart Resolution differentiates between skin tones and improves their display.

Smart Insight assesses the content of dark scenes and optimizes them so that they become clearer and more visible.

What does the EIZO ColorNavigator do?

The ColorNavigator software is used to simply and accurately calibrate ColorEdge screens.

What is a look-up table (LUT)?

This is where the signal values are allocated to the color tone values for the output in the monitor. EIZO monitors are 24, 16, 14, or 10 bit instead of the conventional 8 bit look-up table (LUT) for precise color control. Precision work, performed by a high-performance chip developed in-house at EIZO.

How do I optimize calibration using the swing sensor?

To optimize calibration, make sure that the ambient light that appears on the monitor image and the sensor during calibration corresponds to the usual working conditions at the computer workstation.

Isn’t text on a 4K monitor difficult to read?

It doesn’t have to be. You can maintain the precision of the 4K image while viewing text at a size comfortable for you.

What does "resolution" mean?

The LCD display is comprised of a fixed number of image elements (pixels), which light up to display the contents of the screen. The image is comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels. LCDs achieve the best image quality if all pixels can be allocated data, i.e. if the resolution configured on the computer corresponds to that of the LCD display.

The image looks blurry. What can I do?

Firstly, please check the resolution of the LCD screen. Check the recommended resolution stated for the respective LCD screen. If you have set a lower resolution than recommended, this may result in blurring.
