Eizo CG3146 True HDR Reference Display – Pre-Order!
Eizo has officially released the CG3146 HDR reference Display, and it is now available for pre-order. This display is targeted at the video industry and is the world’s first True HDR Reference Monitor with a Built-In Calibration Sensor. The CG3146 Display is expected to begin shipping in September, 2020, but pre-orders are being accepted immediately.
ColorEdge CG3146 supports two gamma curves used for HDR video – hybrid log-gamma (HLG) and perceptual quantization (PQ) curve. HLG is compatible with SDR displays and is suitable for live television broadcasting. PQ curve approximates the human visual system in terms of color and light perception, making it ideal for films, streaming, and other video content. Both gamma curves were standardized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as ITU-R BT.2100. In addition, the PQ curve was standardized by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) as ST-2084.
Built-In Calibration Sensor to Automate Your Workflow
The ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 is the first HDR reference monitor in the world to be equipped with a built-in sensor which calibrates the monitor to stay color accurate. This eliminates the need for a third-party calibration device and streamlines color management so you can stay more focused on the creative process. Calibration information is saved directly to the monitor, so you do not need to recalibrate if connecting to more than one PC.
High Brightness and Contrast
ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 achieves the 1000 cd/m2 high brightness level needed for HDR content display. It also offers a typical contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 for displaying true blacks.
DCI 4K Resolution
ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 displays the DCI-4K standard (4096 x 2160) which is more than four times that of full HD (1920 x 1080). It is ideal for creating, editing, and referencing with 2D and 3D CGI, VFX, compositing, and color grading.
The ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 is equipped with a Single-Link 12G/6G/3G/HD-SDI and Dual- or Quad-Link 3G*/HD-SDI connections for seamless transmission of 4K video data. The SDI connections support 2SI (2 sample interleave) to ensure picture is always maintained during transmission. VPID (Video Payload ID) is also supported for SDI connections.
The wide gamut faithfully reproduces 99% of the DCI-P3 standard used in post production for faithful reproduction of color.
Multiple Preset Color Modes
The ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3146 provides quick access to several broadcast-standard preset color modes from the OSD menu. The available modes are BT.2020, BT.709, DCI-P3, PQ_BT.2100, PQ_DCI-P3, HLG_BT.2100, Calibration, and SYNC_SIGNAL.
BT.709 Out of Gamut Warning
The monitor includes a Gamut Warning preset that when selected, indicates areas of a BT.2020 image that cannot be reproduced using BT.709 by converting them to shades of gray. An additional mode called BT.709 Clipping allows the editor to view BT.2020 images within the BT.709 color space, simulating how it would look to their audience in an HDTV environment.
