Color Management Software - ColorNavigator NX | EIZO

Proprietary Calibration Software

colornavigator nx iconColorNavigator NX offers quality control (QC) and asset management of client ColorEdge monitors. It covers calibration, emulation, built-in sensor correlation, and color mode setting. This software is most effectively used with EIZO’s ColorNavigator Network solution to allow an administrator to perform QC operations on all ColorEdge monitors from a central location.
(For individuals or enterprises that do not require centralized QC, EIZO recommends ColorNavigator 6.)

Save Calibration Information to the Monitor

With ColorNavigator NX, calibration information is saved to the monitor instead of the PC’s operating system. You do not have to recalibrate the monitor if connecting to more than one PC because the monitor retains the settings. You also can toggle between modes without starting up ColorNavigator NX

Calibration information is saved to the monitor and retained when connecting to another PC.

Set Parameters of Color Modes

To suit the needs of a specific project, you can manually change the brightness, gamma, and white point settings of the monitor’s preset color modes such as Adobe RGB and DCI and calibrate to the new values.
In addition to preset color modes, calibration modes are available with each input connector. Just set the desired values for brightness, white point, black level, and gamma and then calibrate.

You can also change any preset color mode into a Calibration mode and set the target values.

Automate Self-Adjustment with Built-In Sensor

Schedule your monitor to self-calibrate (CG series) or self-correct (CX series) automatically at an interval of your choosing or after a specified number of usage hours have elapsed.


Import/Export Monitor Settings

Import/export monitor settings including color modes, self-calibration scheduling, and key lock settings. This functionality allows an administrator to set up multiple monitors easily.
Settings can only be shared among the same models.

Color Mode Name Customization

Give your color mode its own name to avoid confusion about which one to use for a specific project. You can also prevent accidental use of color modes by disabling ones you do not need for your current projects.


Film Emulation with 3D LUT

ColorNavigator NX creates emulation data from the 3D LUT (look-up table) file of the color grading system’s motion picture film. This is available with the monitor’s color modes and is ideal for matching the legacy look of film.
