What is HDR?

HDR (High Dynamic Range) is a range that approximates the human perception of colour and light as content is shown on a display device. A monitor which supports HDR is able to correctly show both very bright and very dark areas on the screen without sacrificing the integrity of either. With lower-range SDR (Standard Dynamic Range) monitors, brightness, contrast, and colour are lost when displaying HDR content.

True HDR with ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145

EIZO's ColorEdge PROMINENCE CG3145 achieves a true HDR visual experience without ABL or the "halo" effect to ensure you always see accurate colors and brightness in every pixel.

Automatic Brightness Limiter (ABL)

Auto Brightness Limiter (ABL) is equipped in other HDR OLED monitors and limits the monitor's ability to display lighter scenes with tones over a specific range in order to prolong the device's lifetime. This causes those light areas to appear dimmer and the colour duller as a result.

Local Dimming

Local dimming uses an area control backlight system which adjusts the brightness in sections of the screen depending on the content displayed. However, when an object on the screen falls outside of the area of the backlight that is adjusted, a "halo" effect appears, making it impossible to achieve full colour accuracy in smaller details.
