DCI-4K trifft auf 31,1-Zoll
More high-end is not possible
DCI 4K resolution
Ultimate cinema full format
The CG319X offers distinct advantages in the 4K video world and for photographers and graphic designers alike: Extremely sharp representation of images thanks to resolution of 149 ppi.
Precision and and color accuracy
High-contrast, bright and crisp screen
The CG319X features DCI 4K 4096 x 2160 (4K DCI), which corresponds to four times the pixel count of Full HD (1920 x 1080). This monitor is therefore the ideal tool for 2D and 3D CGI or visual effects, from compositing to color grading.
The EIZO CG319X fulfills strict softproof requirements based on the ISO 12646 standard. Fogra Forschungsgesellschaft Druck e.V. came to that conclusion in the course of testing the monitor. The CG319X was therefore awarded the Fogra "FograCert Softproof Monitor" seal of quality. You will therefore be working on a tested, color-proof monitor.
The monitor has an impressive top resolution (4096 x 2160 (4K DCI)), a very good contrast ratio of 1500:1 and a brightness of 350 cd/m². For example, you can edit graphics and images down to the pixel. As an added benefit, text contours are clear and precise. The LCD panel with the IPS (Wide Gamut) panel allows for a viewing angle of 178 degrees. Ensuring that hue and contrast remain stable for the viewer.
Vivid colours in line with industry standards
The wide-gamut monitor reliably reproduces 98% of the DCI P3 standard used in digital cinema and also supports the Rec. 2020 standard.
The CG319X also covers 99% of the Adobe RGB gamut. When images recorded in RAW format are converted to AdobeRGB, the monitor reproduces these with absolute colour fidelity. The EIZO monitor also offers great advantages for printing: It covers almost the entire CMYK gamut (ISO coated and U.S. Web Coated, for example). You see the later print result on screen and save yourself the proof stage.
In terms of the HLG and PQ tone curves, the CG319X meets the relevant standards for the display and processing of content in HDR (High Dynamic Range). The optimized gamma curves enable the content to closely resemble natural, human color perception. Production and post-production professionals can count on a reliable representation with HDR tone curves for editing and color grading.
Color depth for plastic images
With its high contrast ratio, the CG319X displays deep blacks, which often look pale or washed out on a typical LCD monitor due to the backlight. This is especially true when viewing the monitor from the side in dimly lit rooms. The CG series is equipped with a retardation film for this purpose, which allows for this depth of blacks even at wide viewing angles.
An integrated calibration sensor ensures you achieve maximum colour accuracy. The sensor is perfectly aligned to the monitor, takes environmental influences such as light into account, and correlates the centre of the image with the edge of the image. This ensures an even result over the whole monitor.
The sensor is located in the bezel and is only extended when performing measurements. This means that no external calibration device is necessary, and the colour fidelity of the monitor is optimal at all times.
The CG319X is equipped with the latest sensor technology, allowing it to be recalibrated on the fly. So you can continue working with applications that are not colour-critical while the monitor calibrates. The sensor only takes up a small amount of space on the screen during calibration and therefore does not interfere. Calibration can also take place completely automatically at definable times, even if the computer is switched off or not connected to the monitor at all.
Good image processing is only possible on well-calibrated monitors. The usual software calibration takes a long time and requires the user to have a certain level of technical expertise. The CG319X is supplied with ColorNavigator hardware calibration software. With ColorNavigator, you can perform calibration quickly, easily, and with excellent colour precision: During calibration, the software directly accesses and saves to the look-up-table in the monitor hardware. You determine the relevant components such as white balance, gamma, brightness, and tone value curve according to your requirements. Calibration then runs automatically based on the default set during production and is therefore unique in terms of precision and speed. This also means that calibration can be performed by users in just a few steps, with no need for in-depth technical knowledge. Because the calibration takes place via the monitor hardware, it is performed without loss and independently of the computer and graphics board. The CG319X can also be smoothly integrated into an existing system.

The free Quick Color Match software helps users, even without in-depth expertise in colour management, to see on the monitor how their images will look when printed on their Canon or Epson inkjet printer at home. In this way, the images can be optimised for the special properties of the selected photo paper even before printing, which helps users avoid expensive misprints.
More information on Quick Color Match
Thanks to the 10 bit colour display based on a 24 bit LUT, you can utilize a huge colour spectrum. This is made possible by the rapid DisplayPort and HDMI connections in combination with the frame rate control. A billion colours at your fingertips simultaneously. That is 64 times more colours than with an 8 bit display. The colour gradations are finer and the colour differences between adjacent colours are smaller. The enhanced grayscale range is equally important for post-production. With the 10 bit grayscale range activated, between 6% and 14% more grayscales are visible.
Ready to use right out of the box
Damit ein ColorEdge direkt nach dem Auspacken einsatzbereit ist, wird jeder einzelne ColorEdge CG319X im Werk individuell durchgemessen und optimal eingestellt. Dazu werden die Gammakurven der Rot-, Grün- und Blaukanäle engmaschig überprüft und, falls notwendig, korrigiert. Diese einzigartige EIZO Werkskalibrierung erlaubt es dem Nutzer, den Monitor mit den voreingestellten Farbräumen direkt nach dem Auspacken – out of the box – zu verwenden. Diese aufwändige Werkskalibrierung ist auch der Grund, warum die Rekalibrierung mit dem ColorNavigator durch den Nutzer so schnell geht.
Perfect rendering across the entire screen
Each individual monitor panel is precisely measured over the entire surface at the EIZO factory. Any inhomogeneities in brightness and unnecessary colour are detected and removed. This process (Digital Uniformity Equalizer) guarantees that identical colours always look the same over the entire service life of the monitor, no matter where they are displayed. Only in this way is precise image processing and retouching possible.
It takes a traditional monitor a minimum of 30 minutes for the brightness, chromaticity and tone values to stabilise, whereas the ColorEdge CG319X only needs three minutes. It means that users know they can reliably trust the colours of the monitor within a short time after switching in on.
Video and film production
Features for post-production
The 3D LUT ensures the most precise tonal value allocation and extremely accurate colour tone reproduction, which can be seen, among other things, in the grey wedge. In LCDs, the brightness levels vary from module to module in relation to the image signal and the colour mixing (addition) of red, green and blue. This can only be accurately recorded and controlled with the help of particularly precise measuring devices.
Ex works, EIZO therefore adjusts every monitor in the CG series and its colour and tone curve. This ensures a consistent colour temperature across the entire grey scale. The result: colour reproduction is the same, precise and reliable for every single CG319X.
Film emulation with 3D LUT ColorNavigator can use 3D LUT files from the color grading of films to generate data for emulation on the monitor. This film emulation is available for up to five color modes of the monitor and is suited to simulating the coloring of films.
Ideal for subtitles and critical images: Thanks to the Safe Area Marker, you know which area of the scene is displayed in a different aspect ratio. You can therefore see immediately whether subtitles, texts or important picture elements are in the visible area. You can adjust the marker color, size and aspect ratio so that the marker is clearly visible in every image.
The Aspect Marker enables the display of DCI 4k image areas (4096 x 2160 pixels) or 2K video material (2048 x 1080 pixels) that are displayed in varying ways when reproduced on different devices with differing aspect ratios.
Users can quickly and easily make selections directly in the monitor menu to zoom in on various areas of the monitor image so as to assess details and sharpness.
The brightness warning can be used to mark areas that exceed a certain brightness (300, 500, 1000 or 4000 cd/m²) when using the PQ mode. These areas are marked optionally in yellow or magenta.
The Gamut warning operates in two modes: Rec. 2020 image content that can’t be displayed in the Rec. 709 gamut is displayed in grayscale. Alternatively, clipping mode is simulated in Rec. 709 to show how Rec. 2020 material would look on HDTV devices.
Films are normally recorded at 24 fps. They therefore appear unnatural with the conventional monitor rendering of 60 Hz. The monitor supports an image frequency of 24 and 60 Hz. This means that you can view and edit your film material as it was taken.
HDMI signals with refresh rates of 60, 50, 30, 25 and 24 Hz are supported. The monitor also features I/P conversion.
Presets for the gamuts DCI P3, Rec. 709 and Rec. 2020 are precisely calibrated in the factory and ensure you work with the correct gamma values. Colour modes for PQ (DCI and Rec. 2100) and HLG (Rec. 2100) for the display of HDR content are also preset as factory defaults. Colour modes on the monitor can be easily changed at the touch of a key, and recalibrated when necessary using ColorNavigator.
Variety of ports
It doesn’t get simpler than this: Most end devices, such as PCs, laptops or cameras, can be connected directly to the monitor, thanks to its wide range of interfaces.
The CG319X supports a wide variety of video formats up to 10-bit 4:4:4 at 50/60 p via DisplayPort and 10-bit 4:2:2 at 50/60 Hz via HDMI. As a result, the CG319X can be integrated into PC-based workflows as well as used with HDMI feeds.
Working in a relaxed manner
For the sake of the eyes
The monitor is flicker-free at every brightness setting. This is great for users, as their eyes will not tire as quickly, allowing them to work in front of the screen for longer periods of time without fatigue.
The CG319X offers a perfect, non-glare surface. By minimising glare by diffusing the reflected light, the CG319X effectively protects your eyes from straining. This keeps your eyes from getting as tired and allows you to sit comfortably in front of the monitor, without having to sit in a forced position to prevent glare.
Ergonomic and stable: the adjustable stand focuses on ergonomics. You can rotate, swivel and tilt the monitor stand until you find the most comfortable setting for your back, neck and sitting posture. It features continuous height adjustment and can be lowered almost to the base plate of the stand, enabling you to position the top image line ergonomically right below your eye level.
Protection against reflections and glare
The monitor hood reduces reflection and brightness on the screen and helps protect your eyes. It is easy to attach and reduces the amount of light that hits the screen from above and from the sides.
Environmentally and socially conscious production
The CG319X is produced in a socially responsible way. It is free of child labour and forced labour. Suppliers along the supply chain have been carefully selected and they have also committed themselves to produce in a socially responsible way. This applies in particular to conflict minerals. We present a detailed report about our social responsibility annually and voluntarily.
Each CG319X is manufactured in our own factory, which implements an environmental management system in accordance with ISO 14001. This includes measures to reduce waste, wastewater and emissions, resource and energy consumption, as well as to encourage environmentally conscious behaviour among employees. We publicly report on these measures on an annual basis.
The CG319X is designed for a long service life that takes into account the entire lifecycle and impact on the environment. It is generally well above the five-year guarantee. Spare parts are available up to five years after the end of production. The monitor’s long service life and the ability to repair it save resources and the climate. When designing the CG319X we paid attention to reducing resource consumption by using high-quality components and materials and being meticulous in production.
Highest investment security
EIZO grants a five-year warranty. This is possible thanks to the highly developed production process based on a simple principle of success: sophisticated and innovative technology, made from high-end materials.
The CG319X has a color and brightness guarantee for five years from the date of purchase for 10000 operating hours at a maximum brightness of 120 cd/m² and a color temperature between 5000 and 6500 K.

Around your product
The ColorNavigator software is used to simply and accurately calibrate ColorEdge screens.
ColorNavigator Network enables centralized quality assurance for ColorEdge monitors.
Test the properties and parametres of your monitor quickly and easily with software developed in-house at EIZO.
Quick Color Match simplifies the colour management workflow for home inkjet printing.
EIZO monitors generally have two or more signal inputs. You can easily switch between two or more computers by pressing a button on the front of the monitor. For devices with KVM switch functionality, the USB hub also switches to the respective computer at the same time.
This may be a problem with the graphics card driver. Please install the latest driver for your graphics card and restart the PC with the monitor.
Older graphics cards may not be able to display this resolution. In this case, you will require a new graphics card with the matching output.
Firstly, please check the resolution of the LCD screen. Check the recommended resolution stated for the respective LCD screen. If you have set a lower resolution than recommended, this may result in blurring.
The LCD display is comprised of a fixed number of image elements (pixels), which light up to display the contents of the screen. The image is comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels. LCDs achieve the best image quality if all pixels can be allocated data, i.e. if the resolution configured on the computer corresponds to that of the LCD display.
The color 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.
6500 K: Suitable for displaying photos and video images.
The color tone rendering is relative to the change of the input signal level. This relationship is generally known as the gamma characteristic. In image reproduction, low gamma values result in white images and high gamma values result in high-contrast images.
International standard for an RGB color space. A color space has been defined, which most devices can comply with, to enable color matching between various applications and devices, such as monitors, scanners, and digital cameras. sRGB images, which are detected or issued on "sRBG devices" are limited to the full sRBG color range and no colors outside the sRBG color space. Color allocation, white point, and gamma are permanently defined.
In connection with a USB-compatible computer, the monitor acts as a hub, to which other USB-compatible peripherals can be connected.
The viewing angle relates to the angle, beneath which the contrast is better than 10:1. These are normally values of 160° to 178°. These values do not provide any information about what enormous differences in contrast may result within the viewing angle. The contrasts should not change significantly for users with a perpendicular view and a slightly side-on view. It must not make a difference whether the viewer is looking at the middle of the image or the edge of the image. How much the contrast stability varies with different LCD technologies is best checked using a measurement diagram or by a direct visual comparison. The more stable the contrast in the user's viewing frustum, the better the image rendering.
High Definition Multimedia Interface. Interface to transfer digital audio and video data
Pixels are precalculated using this function and purposefully accelerated by intelligent steering. In this way not only the black-white changes, but even changes of color nuances are shown very rapidly. Image changes in fast video sequences, 3D CAD animations and games therefore do not suffer from unwanted ghosting effects.
This is where the signal values are allocated to the color tone values for the output in the monitor. EIZO monitors are 24, 16, 14, or 10 bit instead of the conventional 8 bit look-up table (LUT) for precise color control. Precision work, performed by a high-performance chip developed in-house at EIZO.
Balanced brightness is crucial for brilliant color reproduction. Traditional LCD monitors need one to two hours to even out their brightness. However, even then, they are still sensitive to temperature deviations. Patented electronics regulate the backlight, depending on the model. They ensure constant brightness, regardless of the operating times and temperature.
This is a digital signal interface for images and sound signals for computer monitors with a high transmission bandwidth and a compact plug design.
Contrast is the ratio of white to black and for monitors is normally stated as a dark room contrast from a controlled laboratory environment. Typical contrasts on printed paper are 6:1 for newspapers, 31:1 for laser printers, 49:1 for photo paper. For example, dark room contrasts cannot be achieved in the office because an extremely deep black cannot be achieved in normal ambient light – even with the screen turned off.
MST transmits two halves of an image (right and left), each 2x2K at 30 or 60 Hz. This operating system looks at the halves of the image like separate screens as long as they are not connected to a screen by a driver or accessory software. This method is obsolete in modern 4K monitors because it can process the 4K image in full via display port 1.2. This method of transmission is called SST. In this case, the full image, i.e. the full 4K resolution, is transmitted to the monitor and displayed at 60 Hz.
No. In general, every good display port cable is capable of transmitting 4K at 60 Hz.

Screens have millions of pixels, which each have a surface area of less than a hundredth of a square millimeter. These elements may have defects, which are expressed by them being constantly lit or unlit. Visibility is fundamentally dependent on the surrounding area. For example, lit elements are almost invisible in a bright environment. Each LCD screen is unique in terms of pixel errors.
To give you a clear statement about what frequency of pixel errors EIZO deems tolerable, EIZO screen models are tested according to internationally recognized standards. On average the actual levels are in fact far below the tolerances across all of the devices. LCD modules that do not meet these requirements are not used at EIZO. Depending on the model, EIZO monitors have a zero pixel error guarantee for completely illuminated sub-pixels (partial pixels ISO 9241-307). Valid: six months from the purchase date.

Since the German Electrical and Electronic Equipment Act (ElektroG) entered into force on March 24, 2006, old electrical equipment can no longer be disposed of with the normal waste. It must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner and recycled. This also applies to old EIZO devices.
If you are a private end consumer, you should simply take your old monitor to a local collection center. You will not be charged for this. You can find out where your nearest collection center is from your local authority.
If you are a business customer, simply contact us.
No, you do not need a driver. The monitors are identified via the signaling line and then installed as a standard or plug & play monitor.
We cannot make a direct recommendation. The output signal should be digital and should support the maximum resolution of the monitor.
Digital signal encryption system as copy protection for digital contents, for example for videos, music, etc. The transmission of digital contents is protected as the contents are encrypted on the transmitter's side, sent via a DVI output and once again decrypted on the recipient's side. Digital contents may not be reproduced if both the transmitter and recipient device do not support HDCP.
Wide gamut designates a color space that is considerably larger than the visible palette of conventional LCDs. Depending on the model, it covers up to 100% NTSC and 99% of the Adobe RGB color space. The colors of these monitors bring about a realistic image quality that was previously impossible in LCDs.
No special compatibility is required between EIZO monitors and Windows 11. If supported by the graphics card or chip and its driver, all monitors and their resolutions will be correctly recognised and applied.
EIZO software will support Windows 11 in the future as follows:

Please refer to the footnote below the table.
Often, people forget to establish the USB connection between the monitor and the PC/Mac. ColorNavigator uses the USB cable to calibrate the monitor. Please check that the USB cable is inserted correctly and is also functioning properly.
Most Web browsers do not support color management. This means that the browsers ignore images’ color profiles. As a result, sRGB images, for example, are displayed in the monitor’s entire gamut (wide gamut). This is why the images are displayed in an oversaturated way. This also applies for image viewing software that doesn’t support color management.
The sRGB mode that is included on all EIZO monitors offsets the monitor colors in the sRGB gamut. This allows the EIZO monitor to correctly display the sRGB images in the browser/viewer by getting the monitor to correct what the browser or image viewing software ignores.
The ColorNavigator software is used to simply and accurately calibrate ColorEdge screens.
4K UHD describes a resolution of 3840 x 2160, compared to a resolution of 4096 x 2160 for 4K-DCI.
4K DCI is commonly used in the film industry.
The EIZO ColorNavigator software can be used to calibrate and profile ColorEdge-LCD monitor hardware. IMPORTANT: Please do not use an alternative calibration software, which may not be able to use the hardware function of ColorEdge LCD monitors.
To keep your monitor looking like new at all times and to prolong the service life of your device, we recommend cleaning it regularly. Clean the casing and LCD surface as described below:
IMPORTANT: Never use thinner, benzene, alcohol (ethanol, methanol or isopropyl alcohol), scouring agents or other strong solvents as these may damage the casing and the LCD display.
Remove marks by wiping the casing with a soft cloth, which you have previously moistened with a mild cleaning agent. Never spray wax or cleaning agents directly on to the casing. (The manual contains exact details.)
Where necessary, the monitor surface may be cleaned using a soft cloth (for example a cotton cloth or glasses cloth). Stubborn marks can generally be removed by wetting the cloth with a bit of water to increase the cleaning strength.
During the calibration by the user, the desired white point and gamma curve are transferred to the gray 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.
Homogeneous luminance distribution and good color purity are key to achieving very accurate image rendering. The Digital Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) circuit takes care of this. It automatically corrects non-uniformities in terms of luminance and chrominance for all tone values across the entire image area – pixel by pixel.
When it comes to color accuracy when working, how well a monitor can differentiate between color tones is of fundamental importance. To achieve the maximum color 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 color resolution, meaning that even the finest structures in darker areas of the image are reproduced so that they are absolutely accurate in every detail.
In connection with a frame rate control (FRC) of the LCD modules, CG monitors allow for 10 bit color resolution, depending on the module. Screens can therefore display even the finest tone value gradations using a billion colors. This requires corresponding 10 bit support by the application software and graphics card.
The color rendition of LCD modules varies with temperature and can, for example, be more than 5 ΔE in summer at 30° Celsius and above. Even an LCD module that has just been switched on deviates by up to 5 ΔE until it warms up. Color drift correction, in conjunction with a thermometer in the screen, counteracts this and ensures reliable color reproduction.
EIZO monitors support DisplayPort Alternate Mode with their USB-C interface. This means they can correctly display image signals from Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 ports via USB-C connection. The USB-C signal cable supplied by EIZO with the monitor has the optimal suitability.
Alternatively, monitors with a DisplayPort socket can be connected using a suitable cable. The CP200 signal cable (USB-C (TB3/TB4) to DisplayPort) provided by EIZO is the most suitable.
A connection from Thunderbolt 3 or Thunderbolt 4 ports to the HDMI interface of the monitor can work with suitable active adapters/cables. However, we recommend using the USB-C or DisplayPort interface of the monitor.
An integrated calibration sensor governs the maximum color accuracy. It positions itself automatically for calibration and then conceals itself in the safety of the casing until the next measurement is taken. Each monitor is exactly coordinated using its sensor. For example, the measurement location is correlated with the middle of the image at the upper edge of the image so that the sensor takes measurements as if it were in the middle of the image. This integrated solution rules out the variability, which may arise when using external measuring devices. Even the influences of ambient light are determined when initiating the sensor and considered during calibration.
Devices with an integrated calibration sensor are able to perform calibration without the help of the user. The computer does not even need to be switched on. When programmed once, the calibration will start at night, during the lunch break, or at other, definable times. It is easy to program using the ColorNavigator or the on-screen menu.
Typical 1D look-up tables (LUTs) have separate tables for red, green and blue. Depending on the model, EIZO links the color allocation to a single, three-dimensional look-up table (3D LUT) to ensure particularly accurate color control and in doing so, allows for the exact addition of primary colors to any chosen color tone – vital technology for the ideal gray scale and ultra-precise color rendering.
When you enable High Dynamic Range (HDR) in OS Display settings to use with ColorEdge selected SDR color mode, the color appears washed out.
When you disable High Dynamic Range (HDR) in OS Display settings to use with ColorEdge selected HDR color mode, the color appears extremely overexposed / bright.
Please set High Dynamic Range in OS Display settings correctly according to the selected color mode of the monitor.
Please refer to the user's manual for the SDR color mode and HDR color mode for each models.
＜the High Dynamic Range setting in OS＞
Settings -> System -> Display -> HDR -> "Use HDR" turn off
macOS: Apple -> System Preferences -> Displays -> Display settings -> "High Dynamic Range" turn off
EIZO provides up to a five-year warranty, although some devices have a different warranty period. You can find out the exact warranty periods for each product either in the warranty terms and conditions above, in the datasheet, or on the EIZO international website. The long warranty periods are made possible by a highly developed manufacturing process based on a simple principle of success: sophisticated and innovative monitor technology, manufactured from high-end materials. For you, the 5-year warranty means a high level of investment security and savings on follow-up costs (total cost of ownership), which would be incurred without warranty service, for example, for maintenance and repairs.
