Simple and Precise Calibration with ColorNavigator 6

ColorNavigator 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 CS270 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.

How to Color Match Your ColorEdge Monitor and Photo Prints

In this guide, we go over how you can retouch and print digital photos on your own home inkjet printer and match the colors with monitor.


99% of the Adobe RGB Color Space

color gamutAn IPS panel with a wide color gamut reproduces 99% of the Adobe RGB color space so images shot in RAW can be converted to Adobe RGB or images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. The colors seen in photos of vibrant blue skies and lush green forests will be reproduced faithfully.








Stable Image Display Free from Environmental Influence

EIZO-Developed ASIC at the Core

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 color processing to produce smooth color tones.

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 equalizer (DUE) technology.


Predictable Color You Can Depend on

Individually Adjusted at the Factory

The gamma level for each ColorEdge monitor is adjusted at the factory. This is accomplished by measuring the R, G, and B gamma values from 0 – 255, then using the monitor’s 16-bit look-up table (LUT) to select the 256 most appropriate tones to achieve the desired value.

10-Bit Simultaneous Display

Using the DisplayPort input, the monitor offers 10-bit simultaneous color display* from a 16-bit look-up table which means it can show more than one billion colors simultaneously. This is 64 times as many colors as you get with 8-bit display which results in even smoother color gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colors.
*A graphics board and software which support 10-bit output are also necessary for 10-bi display.

Comfort and Convenience

Multiple Inputs

connectorsDisplayPort, HDMI, and DVI-D inputs are included for connecting to various types of graphics boards, The HDMI input also offers direct connection with digital cameras. Two USB upstream ports allow two computers to be connected at once so it’s not necessary to reconnect the USB cable when using the ColorNavigator software and switching between the two computers.

LED Backlight with Flicker-Free Display

An LED backlight reduces power consumption to just 27 watts during typical operation. When using the monitor at a low brightness setting, the ColorEdge CS270 utilizes brightness modulation technology for flicker-free image display to help prevent eye fatigue.

Adjustable Stand

Adjust the screen to the most comfortable angle for you and reposition it to show your work to a colleague or client. The monitor comes with a versatile stand that offers height, tilt, and swivel adjustments as well as portrait mode display.

Most shading hoods can only be used in landscape mode, but a unique hood that is designed for portrait mode as well is available as an option.




Commitment to Quality and the Environment

5-Year Warranty

The monitor is backed by a manufacturer’s five-year warranty that covers all components including the LCD panel. This is at least two years more than the warranty of most monitors to ensure a long service life and low total cost of ownership. Rather than outsource production and simply replace a product if it becomes defective during its warranty period, we manufacture our products at our own factories to ensure they will last the full five years.

5 Year Warranty

Zero Bright Pixels

Zero bright policyEIZO guarantees this product will be free from bright sub-pixels for six months from purchase date for purchases made on September 1, 2015 or later.

See our Bright Pixel Policy for details.

Mercury-Free LED Backlight

The LED backlight used with the LCD panel contains no mercury so it will have minimal environmental impact when it is eventually disposed of.

Zero Watts When Turned Off

When the monitor is turned off via the power button on its front bezel it consumes no electricity.
