Tested and Proven to be the  Ultimate in Image Quality
& Subject Detail Capture,  SUPER 6K HS BetterLight Scanback  is what we got!

2.     THE ULTIMATE COLOR MANAGEMENT WORKFLOW…
We use Mac Pro MA97oLL/A Desktop

Combining two of Intel’s new 64-bit, 45 nanometer Quad_Core Xeon 5400 processors running
at 2.8GHz, the Mac pro is an unbelievably powerful workstation that can handle even the most
intensive graphic rendering.

 

 

Perfectly  matched  with the  Ultimate EIZO  ColorEdge CG241W Monitor

Exceptional Color Management
ColorEdge monitors offer hardware calibration  which means color settings are adjusted inside the  monitor so there’s no displayable loss of tonalities

Wide Color Gamut

The monitor produces 96% of the Adobe RGB color space so it can display  most
colors in a digital photo taken in Adobe RGB mode. Furthermore, it also has an sRGB
mode to accurately reproduce colors in this narrower but commonly used color space,
such as those seen on webpages or digital photos taken in sRGB mode.

  16-Bit Internal Processing

With most LCD monitors, the black level is usually too bright which leads to banding
and washing out of dark grays.  16-bit internal processing allows the monitor to
reproduce a high level of detail in dark areas.

Brightness and Color Uniformity with DUE

 Fluctuations in brightness and chroma on different parts of the screen are
characteristics  of LCD panels. Generally, the larger the screen, the more noticeable
these uniformity errors become. EIZO’s Digital  

Uniformity Equalizer (DUE) effectively compensates for these errors, resulting in a much more uniform image.

With it is Eye-One Calibrator...

The Ultimate in Color Management Calibration

The Xrite Eye-One Display 2 is an, easy-to-use, powerful solution that provides the best monitor profile quality ever! With enhancements to both hardware and software, you'll achieve consistent, predictable color on all types of monitors (LCD and CRT). Eye-One Display 2 features an enhanced sensor providing higher repeatability, faster measurements and higher sensitivity in the dark areas for better control in shadow detail and a more neutral gray scale.

  • Automatic hardware control through DDC/CI interface - no manual adjustments needed for brightness, contrast or white point!

  • User definable luminance settings for better color agreement on multiple monitors

  • Chromatic adaptation formula for a closer visual match of different monitors (or of different settings on one monitor) with different white points

  • Gray balance optimization for more neutral and better defined grays

  • Profile summary report ideal for post profile analysis

  • Profile reminder to ensure true and reliable color over time

  • Ambient light check procedure to determine optimal ambient light conditions for color critical work
