Global monitor specialist EIZO Limited is pleased to announce its collaboration with industry leading display calibration software manufacturer Light Illusion. The manufacturers have successfully fully integrated Light Illusions  LightSpace CMS calibration system into EIZO ColorEdge monitors, providing unparallel display calibration capability for colour critical application, with the addition of in-built LUT Management making the combination of EIZO and LightSpace CMS ideal for on-set Look workflows.

Steve Shaw, CEO of Light Illusion is delighted by EIZO’s adoption of LightSpace CMS. “In discussion with EIZO we suggested how LightSpace CMS could assist with both the calibration of their monitors as well as providing advanced LUT manipulation tools, and it has been extremely satisfying to see the results bear this out.”

NEWS POST 22 – Photographers have an EIZO high street experience with Calumet

2 flagship Calumet stores are now home to EIZO monitors for photographers to trial

http://www.eizo.co.uk/EIZO-Calumet.html

Manchester and London now host three of the best EIZO monitors so photographers can put them through their paces.

Offering unbiased product trials in two of the Calumet stores with the heaviest footfall, EIZO and Calumet are now able to invite photographers to learn about colour management, why a monitor makes a difference and to run their own images through the machines so they can see the difference for themselves.

“The Calumet stores are perfect for photographers at any level to actually see for themselves the positive difference that an EIZO CG monitor will make to their pictures,” said Victor Aberdeen, EIZO ColorEdge Sales Manager. “Photographers often are put off by the technical stuff about monitors, but it is about the art, so being able to try them out for themselves brings the advantages into focus, showing photographers the detail ordinary monitors are hiding, which really benefits their images!

Each store has a ColorEdge CG276, CX240 and CS230 – for technical specs please visit www.eizo.co.uk and http://www.eizo.co.uk/EIZO-Calumet.html

“If you’ve never experienced an EIZO, well now here’s your chance.”

There is a free Colour Management Handbook to download through the EIZO UK website. www.eizo.co.uk
