Display manufacturer, EIZO, will soon release its latest model, the ColorEdge CG248–4K, which packs in 4K native resolution and 185PPI pixel density, the highest ever in an EIZO monitor.

Designed specifically for photographers and videographers, the ColorEdge CG248–4K features a 23.8-inch screen with 4K (3840 x 2160) native resolution, equating to 185 pixels per inch (for comparison, Apple’s 27” Retina 5K iMac has 218 PPI). The screen is lit by an LED-backlit IPS (in-plane switching) panel, which ensures even light from the edges to the center of the display.

To ensure all those pixels are displaying the correct colors, EIZO has included two programs and built-in sensors which allow for easy calibration of the monitor. The ColorEdge CG248–4K also covers 99% of the Adobe RGB color space, displaying more than a billion colors simultaneously.

The monitor has two DisplayPort (version 1.2) inputs and two HDMI connectors, making it compatible with most computers out there. Other connectors include three USB inputs built into the monitor for easy access to external storage and accessories.

Additionally the monitor includes a shading hood, which helps eliminate glare on the screen when viewing in bright environments.

The ColorEdge CG248–4K is set to ship in April 1st, with an unknown price tag. When more information is released, we’ll update this post.
