Eizo ColorEdge CS270 Graphics for the Pro

Published by


Eizo announced a new ColorEdge, the CS270 is  a 27-inch colour management monitor that fits the varying needs and budgets of photo enthusiasts and graphic design professionals. The ColorEdge CS270 offers many of the advanced features of Eizo’s ColorEdge line-up such as a wide colour gamut and hardware calibration.

It also delivers benefits not usually available with cost-performance monitors such as dedicated calibration software that supports compatibility with a wide range of third-party calibration devices and a manufacturer’s five-year warranty.

The ColorEdge CS270 features a wide-gamut IPS-type panel with a 2560 x 1440 native resolution and reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB colour space. With this extended gamut, images shot in RAW can be converted to Adobe RGB or images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed in vibrant and lush colours. In other specs the screen offers a 15ms G2G response time, 1000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 brightness and 178/178 viewing angles.


Additional Features


  • Gamma curve for each monitor adjusted on the EIZO factory line.
  • Two upstream and two downstream USB ports.
  • Supports EIZO’s UniColor Pro software that simulates color blindness so designers can choose color schemes for maps, road signs, web sites, etc. that can be viewed by everyone.
  • EIZO shading hood for reducing ambient light reflection available as an option.

The screen is also advertised as flicker free which is good news. The ColorEdge CS270 comes equipped with DisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI input terminals. With the DisplayPort input, the monitor offers 10-bit display (more than one billion colours simultaneously) from a 16-bit look-up table. In addition, it can display 10-bit colour via the HDMI input terminal with Deep Color applicable devices. An ergonomic stand with 35° tilt, 344° swivel, portrait mode, and 148 mm height adjustment lets users place the screen in the optimal position. The stand has a sturdy build and includes a cable holder for a clutter-free desktop.

Eizo's DUE (digital uniformity equalizer) technology compensates for uniformity errors common to all LCD panels to produce more even brightness and colour across the screen. With DUE, the screen stays uniform even when calibrating the monitor to user-preferred settings.

The screen is factory calibrated as well, but for users that require a wide variety of calibration functionality, Eizo bundles its proprietary ColorNavigator 6 software. Preset target values for photography, printing, and web design are included for users looking for a simple way to calibrate the monitor. Experienced users can set their own target values for brightness, gamma, and white point, and generate an ICC profile. ColorNavigator 6 offers several advanced functions such as measuring the white of the paper to be used for printing for better screen-to-print matching and profile validation for verifying calibration results.

Because ColorNavigator 6 is proprietary software, EIZO has ensured it is compatible with a wide range of calibration devices from X-Rite, Datacolor, and other manufacturers and supports Macintosh, Windows, and Linux (Red Hat 6.4) operating systems.
