EIZO Corporation has recently announced that it is the first company to obtain TUV Rheinland’s Color Accuracy certification with some of the products in its ColorEdge series of graphics monitors.
EIZO ColorEdge monitors have been known for being the best professional color management monitors for years, helping professionals in printing, photography and post production obtain the optimum results they need.
What is TUV Color Accuracy Certification?
TÜV Rheinland’s Color Accuracy is the first quality and performance criterion to measure the color accuracy of display devices for multiple graphics fields such as photography, post production, design, and printing.
Monitors that are TUV certified can be trusted by professional creatives as they are confirmed to meet an established set of requirements for image display.
The general requirements to become TUV certified are the following:
- Accurate color display including verification of the sRGB and Adobe RGB preset modes
- Color stability when the monitor is in use
- Brightness and color uniformity
- Minimal color shift when the screen is viewed from an angle
In addition, if a monitor meets the requirements for stable color shortly after being powered on then it is also designated with the grade “Quick Stability”, which has been granted for EIZO ColorEdge monitors.
The monitors that received TUV Rheinland’s Color Accuracy certification are the EIZO ColorEdge CG248-4K, EIZO ColorEdge CG318-4K, EIZO ColorEdge CG277, and EIZO ColorEdge CG247, and they carry the Quick Stability grade as well.
These monitors fulfill comprehensive requirements expected in the high-end graphics market, this certification will deliver additional value to professionals.
A spot on the certified monitors
Eizo ColorEdge CG277 is a 27″ monitor with 99% Adobe RGB colour space coverage, 10-bit simultaneous display and hardware calibration. Eizo ColorEdge CG277 is a self-calibrating monitor that delivers optimal performance to professionals in printing, photography, and post production.
Automatic calibration can be done through the built-in SelfCalibration sensor that is housed within the monitor’s bottom bezel and swings up onto the screen only when calibrating, which eliminates the need for a third-party calibration device and even operates in portrait mode.
Eizo ColorEdge CD247 Monitor is ideal for professionals in printing, photography, and post production. Eizo ColorEdge CG247 24″ LCD/INT combines a built-in calibration sensor that is housed within the monitor’s bottom bezel and swings up onto the screen only when calibrating with 99% Adobe RGB coverage and uniform brightness for outstanding color that helps users automate their calibration. The built-in calibration sensor eliminates the need for a third-party calibration device and even operates in portrait mode.
