The Eizo CS230 is designed for entry-level users doing photo editing and other creative work.
The CS230 offers professional features of other ColorEdge monitors like automatic colour adjustment with the built-in SelfCorrection sensor and ColorNavigator software.
Color Navigator 6
The calibration software available with most graphics monitors is usually third-party software with limited support for operating systems and calibration devices. In addition, the software might only let you create one or two profiles which is restricting if you work in more than one color space or if you work on multiple tasks, each with their own requirements.
The ColorEdge CS230 comes bundled with EIZO’s own ColorNavigator 6 calibration software. Because ColorNavigator is developed in-house, EIZO has ensured it is compatible with Mac, Windows, and Linux OSes and works with a wide range of measurement devices from X-Rite, DataColor, and other manufacturers. For simplicity, preset adjustment targets are provided for photography, web design, and printing. More advanced users can set their own values for brightness, white point, and gamma, and create their own target profiles. Calibration only takes a few minutes to complete.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.
Built-in Correction Sensor - A third-party sensor is required for calibrating the monitor, but the CS230's built-in SelfCorrection sensor maintains the calibration settings when used with the optional ColorNavigator software. The SelfCorrection sensor is housed within the monitor's upper bezel and appears only after a specific amount of time determined by the user has elapsed.
Eizo-Developed ASIC - All ColorEdge models come with an ASIC (application specific integrated circuit) developed by Eizo to meet the needs of the graphics market. The ASIC has its own algorithms used in high-precision colour processing to produce smooth colour tones.
Brightness and Colour Uniformity with DUE - Fluctuations in brightness and chromaticity on different parts of the screen are a common trait of LCD monitors. To counteract this, the monitor incorporates EIZO's patented digital uniformity equaliser (DUE) technology.
10-Bit simultaneous display - Using the DisplayPort input, the monitor offers 10-bit simultaneous colour display from a 16-bit look-up table which means it can show more than one billion colours simultaneously. This is 64 times as many colours as you get with 8-bit display which results in even smoother colour gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colours.
