EIZO’s development of EasyPIX is in response to the growing popularity of digital photography among amateur photographers and to address common issues of color mismatch between monitors, photo prints and online images.
EasyPIX software offers three adjustment modes. For more accurate photo prints, a “Matching” mode lets users adjust the monitor’s hue and brightness to match photo paper. A “Viewing Photos” mode sets the monitor’s color temperature to 5500 K without any manual adjustments, a common default setting at which many digital cameras take photos. For previewing how images will appear on most web browsers, a “Web Viewing” mode sets the monitor automatically to display a color temperature of 6500 K.
In all three modes, a color profile is created with the EasyPIX software and EX1 sensor by adjusting the monitor’s brightness through visual perception. Furthermore, in “Matching” mode, the color profile can be shared with third party photo retouching software to ensure final print colors match those of the monitor.
EasyPIX is compatible with selected FlexScan® and ColorEdge® LCD monitors.* Compatible operating systems are Macintosh OS X 10.3.9 and later and Windows XP (32-bit/64-bit), Vista (32-bit/64-bit). The calibrator unit can also be used with the EIZO-developed ColorNavigator software, used with Eizo’s ColorEdge series for professional users.
The EasyPIX will begin shipping in February. For information about availability please contact the EIZO subsidiary or distributor in your country for details. The RRP when sold as stand alone is SEK 1.612:- including VAT (Euro 159:-) and SEK 1.250:- (Euro 119:-) when sold in bundle with monitor.
