In connection with a frame rate control (FRC) of the LCD modules, CG monitors allow for 10 bit colour resolution, depending on the module. Screens can therefore display even the finest tone value gradations using a billion colours. This requires corresponding 10 bit support by the application software and graphics card.
When it comes to colour accuracy when working, how well a monitor can differentiate between colour tones is of fundamental importance. To achieve the maximum colour depth and prevent the formation of stripes, banding and washing, EIZO relies on the ultimate perfection: a 16 bit look-up table (LUT) ensures precise colour resolution, meaning that even the finest structures in darker areas of the image are reproduced so that they are absolutely accurate in every detail.
Typical 1D look-up tables (LUTs) have separate tables for red, green and blue. Depending on the model, EIZO links the colour allocation to a single, three-dimensional look-up table (3D LUT) to ensure particularly accurate colour control and in doing so, allows for the exact addition of primary colours to any chosen colour tone – vital technology for the ideal grey scale and ultra-precise colour reproduction.
Thanks to the automatic brightness adjustment, an EIZO monitor with Auto EcoView saves up to 50% energy in comparison to inactive brightness adjustment. The EcoView sensor identifies changes to the ambient light, whereupon the image brightness of the monitor is calibrated and adjusted to the new light conditions. In the case of strong lighting, the image brightness is increased, while it is reduced in the case of weak lighting. The continuous adjustment of the light conditions results in a constant contrast, which ensures maximum ergonomics at the workplace.
From the moment it is turned on, it ensures that brightness fluctuations caused by temperature are minimised.
During the calibration by the user, the desired white point and gamma curve are transferred to the grey scale through a combination of measurements and calculations. This process is typical at EIZO as it saves time and is more precise than the measurements of several tone values with conventional manual measuring devices, which are prone to errors. The accuracy of the factory calibration with sensitive laboratory measuring equipment serves as a secure foundation in this regard.
A device to measure light colours. Colorimeters are mainly used for calibrating and profiling monitors. In any case, body colours (reflected light) can be measured to a limited extent.
Calibration software included with EIZO ColorEdge LCD monitors It ensures interactive control of the look-up tables in the screen and creates a corresponding monitor colour profile.
All colours that can be reproduced by a device. A colour is outside the gamut if the device does not have that colour available.
The colour temperature is a benchmark for measuring the white tone and is stated in Kelvin. At high temperatures, the white tone appears slightly blue, while it has a more red tone at low temperatures.
5000 K: Often used in the printing industry.
