EIZO's ColorEdge PROMINENCE HDR reference monitors are the first to overcome the severe drawbacks of other HDR technologies available in the market, so they can be used reliably for post production work. Auto Brightness Limiter (ABL) equipped in other HDR OLED monitors limits the monitor's ability to display lighter scenes with tones over a specific range. This causes those light areas to appear dimmer and the color duller as a result. Local dimming uses an area control backlight system which adjusts the brightness in sections of the screen depending on the content displayed. However, when an object on the screen falls outside of the area of the backlight that is adjusted, a "halo" effect appears, making it impossible to achieve full color accuracy in smaller details. EIZO's CG3146 achieves a true HDR visual experience without ABL or Local Dimming to ensure you always see accurate colors and brightness in every pixel. CG3146 supports hybrid log-gamma (HLG) and the perceptual quantization (PQ) curve for HDR video. HLG is compatible with SDR displays and is suitable for live television broadcasting. The PQ curve approximates the human visual system in terms of color and light perception, making it ideal for films, streaming, and other video content. Both functions (EOTF) were standardized by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) as ITU-R BT.2100. In addition, the PQ curve was standardized by the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) as ST-2084. CG3146 is the first HDR reference monitor in the world to be equipped with a built-in sensor which calibrates the monitor to stay color accurate. This eliminates the need for a third-party calibration device and streamlines color management so you can stay more focused on the creative process. Calibration information is saved directly to the monitor, no need to recalibrate if connecting to more than one PC.
