EIZO Wins Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Award
CYPRESS, Calif., Feb. 3, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — EIZO Inc. announced that it has been awarded a Scientific and Technical Award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for its ColorEdge CG Series monitors with integrated self-calibration sensors.
The Academy’s Scientific and Technical Awards honor individuals and companies whose innovations have contributed in significant and lasting ways to motion pictures. The Academy will honor 17 scientific and technical achievements in a virtual Scientific and Technical Awards presentation on Saturday, February 13, 2021. The ceremony will be available on the Oscars website starting at 1 p.m. PT.
EIZO is honored to receive the esteemed award for the development of the ColorEdge CG Series hardware calibration monitors with built-in calibration sensors. The lead innovators behind the technology and direct recipients of the award are Senior Product Manager Masato Nakashima, Senior Engineer Junji Sakuda, Principal Engineer Koichi Ueno, and Principal Engineer Junro Yonemitsu.
EIZO’s modern integrated calibration sensor technology is the result of extensive research and investment in imaging solutions for a range of markets, including healthcare. In 2005, EIZO introduced a medical monitor with a built-in sensor that calibrates the screen as well as stabilizes brightness for precise display of monochrome radiology images. EIZO build upon the technology, becoming the first manufacturer in the world to bring a self-calibrating color precision solution to market with the ColorEdge CG245W in 2010. EIZO’s modern built-in sensor technology can be set to calibrate automatically, eliminating the need for a third-party calibration device while ensuring the screen stays color accurate. The sensor is developed and manufactured in-house at EIZO’s own facilities – a testament to EIZO’s passion and dedication to precise imaging.
Having a screen that users can trust is indispensable in many industries – in healthcare where lives depend on accurate imaging to diagnose and treat, and in creative fields such as film production where technology facilitates efficiency and provides peace of mind so editors and artists can focus more on the story they are trying to tell.
EIZO’s ColorEdge monitors are relied on by major studios worldwide to bring some of the most inspiring and exciting stories and experiences to audiences everywhere.
“Industrial Light & Magic has been delighted with the imaging performance and feature set of the self-calibrating EIZO monitors since their introduction. The journey together with our friends at EIZO has been a pleasure and we are thrilled to see them receive this much-deserved recognition by the Academy Sci-Tech Awards council.”
