New displays provide massive color gamut, good connectivity
At this week's National Association of Broadcasters conference, HP has announced two new HP DreamColor Displays. The new displays, available today, boast 1.07 billion on-screen colors, giving what the company calls "color error so small that it is not discernible to the human eye."
The DreamColor Z24x is a 24-inch display running at 1920x1200 resolution. It features a 350cd/m2 brightness, with a 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Inputs are DVI-D with HDCP support, HDMI, and DisplayPort 1.2 in and out. Four USB 3.0 ports are available, with two on the side and two on the back.
The larger Z27x is a 27-inch DreamColor panel running at 2560x1440 resolution. It is a 300 cd/m2 display with a 1000:1 static contrast ratio. Inputs are one HDMI with HDCP support, and one DisplayPort 1.2. The monitor has four USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and one audio-out connector.
The HP DreamColor Z27x and Z24x are available today for $1,499 and $599, respectively.
