Blackmagic Design is an industry-leading innovator of creative video technology. We spoke with them about their experience using EIZO ColorEdge monitors.
Before using the ColorEdge CG318-4K, we used other name-brand monitors.
We attend many trade shows throughout the year and use monitors as part of our booth setup. We use them in our camera section to display live camera feeds for attendees who come through the booth and try out the cameras. We have used many different monitors throughout the years and are always looking to improve our setup. Our camera team noted how important image quality was to them, and past monitors have not put out the quality we desire. We have also had a few problems with formats in the past with other brands, and our camera team was keen on finding a confidence monitor that was more accurate and would provide better quality moving forward.
The CG318-4K monitor provides great quality and detail. The colors and tones retain their depth and also gives us more of the features we are looking for in a confidence monitor, like accuracy, the ability to be calibrated, and different color profiles.
The CG318-4K provides more control for what our customers and our engineers need to do. We have also begun using them as confidence monitors in our DaVinci Resolve color correction demos at various trade shows.
Setup was very easy and straightforward. The camera team was very impressed with the EIZO monitors as they wanted accurate color representation for the image quality of our cameras. The settings were easy to control and the color adjustment on the monitors was quick and accurate.
