Billion-color, 2560x1440 resolution display
Consumer electronics manufacturer ViewSonic announced its latest 27-inch professional grade monitor -- the VP2770-LED. The super IPS display offers professionals in digital photography, architecture, computer engineering and design nearly 80% more pixels than a standard 1080p display.
The 27" VP2770-LED Super IPS LED monitor features a WQHD (Wide Quad High Definition) 2560 x 1440 resolution with 3.7 million pixels. The new display provides native support for 1.07 billion colors, a high 20,000,000:1 contrast ratio, super wide 178 / 178 viewing angles, and high compatibility with most third party color calibrators on the market.
DisplayPort, HDMI, Dual-Link DVI and VGA inputs are available, along with four USB 2.0 ports to support peripherals. In addition, VP2770-LED gives users with full ergonomics including height adjust, swivel, tilt and pivot, plus 80MM VESA mount compatibility for optional wall mounting functionality.
The display will be available in North and Latin America this month for an suggested retail price of $799. A worldwide launch has yet to be announced.
