EIZO has recently announced a new 27" hardware calibration 4K UHD ColorEdge CS2740 monitor. Designed to display images, videos and graphics in the best quality possible, EIZO has stated that the CS2740 will be ultra-sharp, rich in detail, undistorted and precise for all users. 

The EIZO ColorEdge CS2740 monitor is designed to offer "4K UHD resolution for videographers, maximum sharpness for photographers and total precision and rich colors for all". EIZO also says that the monitor features a USB-C port, "which forms the visual core of any digital, color-accurate workflow and guarantees consistent results with incredibly rapid, hardware calibration." The CS2740 monitor is also guaranteed to have 3840 x 2160 pixels, which corresponds to a detail resolution of 164 ppi.

As videographers and photographers know, an accurate monitor is an invaluable tool. Being able to trust that your colors and tones are right is essential for working pros, so a high quality monitor is key. Luckily, each ColorEdge CS2740 is individually measured and optimally configured in a factory to identify and remove inhomogeneities, such as differences in brightness. 

Apparently, it's possible to calibrate the EIZO ColorEdge CS2740 monitor with hardware in just 90 seconds, which would mean that it'll consistently retain its factory-set perfection across its entire service life.

One of the most interesting aspects of the CS2740 monitor is that it has a USB-C port that will allow you to connect your laptop and supply up to 60 watts of power. With four downstream ports (plus the USB-C port), there's no need for a separate docking station or additional power supply unit for your laptop. This is great news for creative professionals who use laptops rather than desktop computers.

If you're interested in the EIZO ColorEdge CS2740 monitor, you can find out more information about it here. EIZO has informed us that it's looking at June 2020 for a release date, with pricing information yet to be confirmed. 

The monitor was originally going to be officially launched at The Photography Show this weekend, which has now been postponed until 19-22 September.
