An interview from the 2019 International Broadcasting Convention in Amsterdam with Christian Ohlig of EIZO. In 2015, EIZO established the ColorEdge Ambassador Program which showcases professional photographers, designers, filmmakers, and other creatives who are committed to inspiring and educating artists around the world. EIZO's Ambassadors – all of them ColorEdge users – are passionately dedicated to their craft and prepare the best equipment for realizing their creative vision.
EIZO's HDR reference monitor, ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145, is the first monitor to overcome the severe drawbacks of other HDR technologies that are available in the market today so it can be used reliably for post production work.
Auto Brightness Limiter (ABL) is equipped in other HDR OLED monitors and limits the monitor's ability to display lighter scenes with tones over a specific range in order to prolong the device's lifetime. This causes those light areas to appear dimmer and the color duller as a result.
ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 qualifies as a Dolby Vision mastering monitor and supports two gamma curves used for HDR video – hybrid log-gamma (HLG) and perceptual quantization (PQ) curve. HLG is compatible with SDR displays and is suitable for live television broadcasting. 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 gamma curves 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.
ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 achieves the 1000 cd/m2 high brightness level needed for HDR content display. It also offers a typical contrast ratio of 1,000,000:1 for displaying true blacks.
ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 displays the DCI-4K standard (4096 x 2160) which is more than four times that of full HD (1920 x 1080). It's ideal for creating, editing, and referencing with 2D and 3D CGI, VFX, compositing, and color grading.
