Big Picture

Eizo Nanao Technologies extended its range of LCD displays, introducing two new wide-format monitors with a "Creator Edition"? ("CE"?) designation: the 21-in. ColorEdge CE210W and the 24-in. ColorEdge CE240W.

Both CE monitors are geared toward printing, graphic design, photography, and CAD, and both share these features:

  • Increased horizontal viewing space: a 16:10 aspect ratio (1680 x 1050 native resolution for the 210W, 1920 x 1200 native resolution for the 240W) versus a 4:3 aspect ratio for conventional monitors. The screen is wide enough so that two A4-size pages can be opened at full size with tool palettes placed on the perimeter of the screen.
  • Extended color accuracy and control: 14-bit color processing for accurate grayscale rendering, plus a user-adjustable gamma level from 1.8 to 2.6 (factory- adjusted to 2.2), and color-tempera- ture adjustments from 4000 to 10,000 K in 100-K adjustments. Eizo"?s ColorNavigator CE software, bundled with each display, allows users to input target values for brightness, white point, and gamma, then works with a range of measurement devices to directly access the monitor"?s 10-bit Look-Up Table for accurate calibration. A brightness-stabilization circuit maintains brightness levels within minutes after startup; it also detects and automatically compensates for brightness fluctuations due to ambient temperature.
  • Ergonomic design: the ArcSwing 2 stand offers an arc-shaped range of movement to allow for the screen to be positioned near eye level or at an angle more akin to reading a book. The base swivels 172"?.

Price: $1199, CE210W; $1699, CE240W. Both displays are available in black or white/silver.
