Wide-format monitor designed for soft proofing

Big Picture

The ColorEdge CG220 display from Eizo Nanao Technologies made its US debut at Graph Expo. The 22.2-in. wide-format LCD, first exhibited at Drupa, is geared toward graphic designers, photographers, and media professionals. Designed from the ground up as an LCD, the ColorEdge CG220 boasts a wide color gamut that covers the Adobe RGB color space and 96% of NTSC (National Television System Committee in North America) space, beyond the standard sRGB space. Eizo's intent is to boost the capability for monitor- based ("soft") proofing.

The ColorEdge CG220 also features: 14-bit calculation to produce 1021 tones for red, green, and blue; a 1920 x 1200 resolution; the ability to display two A4- sized documents (8.27 x 11.69 in.) simultaneously at 100% size, with additional room for a tool palette; and a thin bezel and adjustable stand.

Eizo has begun mass production of the ColorEdge CG220. MSRP: approximately $6500. (Eizo Nanao Technologies: www.eizo.com)
