Press Release

Sydney Australia, 5 June 2013 – Get the sports camera everybody’s talking about and do your eyes a favour by upgrading to a new EIZO ColorEdge monitor before the end of July. Weighing only 74g, the GoPro Hero3 White Edition HD camera is one of the most advanced small sports cameras on the market. It comes with a waterproof housing and attachments for mounting it on a helmet, bike handlebars or water craft so you can record your life’s adventures. While stocks last, this little packet of excitement will be bundled free with every ColorEdge Hardware Calibration monitor. This exclusive promotion ends on 31 July. For all the ins and outs, terms and conditions please click here.

But why should you upgrade now?

ColorEdge monitors have become the monitors of choice for professionals in a wide variety of fields, particularly those who spend hours in front of their screens. Aside from their other qualities, EIZO monitors are often purchased for their health benefits, particularly by individuals who are susceptible to migraines, because the screen can emulate the appearance of paper, eliminating glare and being noticeably kinder to the user’s eyes.

But that’s not all; all ColorEdge monitors provide superior imaging performance, thanks to a patented chip developed by EIZO to meet the specific requirements of the graphics market. Proprietary algorithms used in this chip achieve high-precision colour processing to produce smooth and accurate hues and tones. EIZO’s ColorNavigator calibration system provides easy and precise calibration.

Each monitor can be set to replicate the sRGB  colour space used on the internet or emulate different surfaces of fine art paper with correct ink saturation to ensure images are reproduced with accurate colours and the desired tonal balance. When used for professional video editing, they can emulate either cinema film stock as well as broadcasting and digital cinema gamuts.

All ColorEdge monitors come with Digital Uniformity Equalisation to ensure perfectly even brightness and colour distribution across the screen and from corner to corner. All monitors leave the factory individually calibrated for consistency.  EIZO maintains close control over production quality and offers the industry’s only five-year manufacturer’s limited warranty.

Current ColorEdge models include:

The entry-level CS230, which has a 23in high definition screen with a built-in correction sensor. With a full sRGB gamut, this monitor is particularly well-suited to those who publish to the web and edit video.  EIZO’s  ColorNavigator calibration system is optional, but its use is recommended and must be purchased for this promotional giveaway.  

The CG223W has been available for more than two years and remains a popular and affordable favourite worldwide. With a 22in screen and wide colour gamut, the CG223W is ideal for applications such as pre-press, digital photography and broadcasting. It comes with an Ambient Light Hood and the ColorNavigator calibration system for hardware calibration.

The CX range is available in 24in and 27in screen sizes as the CX240 and CX270, respectively. Both will suit professional photographers and designers who require a wide colour gamut and uniform brightness from corner to corner. Maintaining accurate colour is made simple by a built-in SelfCorrection sensor, which automatically adjusts colour settings at user-specified times. EIZO’s  ColorNavigator calibration system is optional for both monitors, but as with the CS230, must be purchased to be eligible for the free GoPro.

EIZO’s flagship CG246 and CG276 monitors feature 24in and 27in screen sizes, respectively. Designed for discerning imaging and graphics professionals, these screens can reproduce 97 percent of the Adobe RGB colour space, enabling images captured as raw files to be displayed with their full colour and tonal gamuts.  Both models include built-in SelfCalibration sensors that eliminate the need for a third-party calibration device. Each monitor comes with an Ambient Light Hood and EIZO’s ColorNavigator calibration system.

Prices for the monitors listed above range from $1650 to $3500. The GoPro Hero3 White Edition HD Camera is valued at $269.

  1. Introducing layout themes and styles in FileMaker Pro 13

    FileMaker Pro, help, inspector, macworld australiaIf you are reading this, you are most likely aware of the benefits offered by FileMaker Pro 13, from streamlining your business’ data to organising projects, but how do you make your FileMaker Pro and FileMaker Go database solutions look the part?

    This is where layout themes and styles come in.

    Would you like the layout to show your business logo when your employees are entering data into the database? Would you like to create conformity across all pages, maybe with a colour theme that matches your business?

    In order to increase usability for your database, a well-designed layout will make the solution both appealing to look at, but also more efficient – as those entering or viewing data will be able to easily navigate the fields in front of them.

    What is a style?

    In FileMaker Pro, a style is the way a layout object, layout part and the database’s background appear. This encompasses the colour or transparency of objects and backgrounds, the style of line used within the layout, the borders of objects and parts, the shape of objects, the shadows outside or inside an object’s border, and the display state of an object.

    For example, when your draw a square on your layout, the initial appearance of the square will be determined by the theme currently being used by the layout. The colour of the square, the lines that define it and any shadow that appears are all differing styles that add up to make a theme.

    The initial theme is called the default and ensures that all objects added to the layout carry a similar look. So, if you add a second square to the layout, it will have the same colour and borders. Though this does not have to be the case if you would like to differentiate them.

    And a theme?

    A theme is the collection of a number of styles used in a layout. Themes are the full picture of how your layout or report appears, and encompass all of the individual styles applied to objects, parts and the background. The theme does not affect the way a layout functions, but when you apply a theme to a layout it will alter the way it looks and feels.

    Making alterations

    Adjusting a style in a theme is very simple. If you click on the object, layout part or background you would like to alter, open the Inspector and head to the Appearances tab, you will see the Style label field at the top. This indicates the current style.  If no changes have been made, it will likely read as ‘Default’.

    Alter the style of the object, layout part or background by editing the property settings on the Appearance tab of the Inspector. Once you have made your layout look the way you would like, select the red arrow that will have appeared as you were making your changes and click ‘Save As New Style’.

    Type in a new name for your style and press OK. Continue to create as many additional styles as you would like in your layout. If you would like to apply a style to multiple objects or modify a style slightly between two objects, your previous styles will be available in the Styles list on the Style tab of the Inspector.

    Once you have made all of the changes you would like, you have the option of creating a new theme or saving the changes to the current theme.
