Eizo Two New 27" ColorEdge Monitors Self-Calibrate

Eizo has started shipments of two new ColorEdge monitors. The monitors, which will be known as the ColorEdge CG277 and the ColorEdge CX271, are both 27" displays with a built-in color calibration system. The CG277 is targeted at professionals, while the CX271 is aimed more at professionals with slightly lower requirements, or 'prosumers.'

Both of the monitors feature a 27" IPS panel, sporting resolutions of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The panels are also 10-bit capable – making it possible to display over one billion colors at any given moment. 8-bit capable panels can only display up to 16.7 million colors. Eizo has even given the CG277 a 16-bit LUT (Look-Up Table), which is driven through the DisplayPort interface. The color calibration system can be scheduled. They also feature 99 percent of Adobe RBG coverage.

Both of the monitors have DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D inputs, as well as a built-in USB hub.- They also both support tilting, swiveling, portrait mode, and height adjustment with a range of up to 151.5 mm.

Both of the monitors will come with a five-year manufacturer warranty, while the CG277 gets a cherry on top, as it gets a 12-month pixel defect warranty as well.

The units are currently shipping to retailers, though there was no word on pricing just yet.

    Am I misken that a 16bit LUT is worthless when you're already displaying 10bit color accurately?
