ViewSonic Intros $1000 Adobe Color QHD Display

On Monday ViewSonic launched the VP2772, a 27-inch Adobe Color Quad HD display ideal for photography, graphic design, media creation, publishing and other color-critical applications. The company claims the new monitor accurately displays 99 percent of the wider Adobe RGB color space thanks to an advanced 12-bit color engine and a 14-bit LUT that processes up to 68.7 billion colors.

The new display sports a SuperClear IPS LED-lit panel calibrated with a Delta E≤3 value. Additional hardware specs include 178 degree viewing angles (horizontal and vertical), a typical response time of 12 ms, a dynamic contrast ratio of 20M:1, a typical contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a typical brightness of 350 cd/m2. The panel's resolution is an impressive 2560 x 1400 pixels.

"With Delta E≤3 color accuracy, images are accurately reproduced on your display – and on daisy-chained displays – with absolutely no differences in color," the company said. "During production, each of our displays is calibrated by technicians to achieve an average Delta E≤3 value. This way, every display shipped has the same phenomenal color performance."

ViewSonic's new panel also provides dual DisplayPort inputs and one DisplayPort output, allowing one image source to be shown simultaneously on multiple daisy-chained displays. Also thrown into the mix are HDMI v1.4 and DVI inputs, and a total of four USB 3.0 ports. All of these features are backed by an ergonomic design with tilt, pivot, swivel and height adjustments.

"Color performance is of the utmost importance to our professional series customers," said Kenneth Mau, Product Marketing Manager for ViewSonic. "The VP2772 delivers the ultimate in image quality with its Adobe Color capability and a 10-bit panel that delivers 1.07 billion colors. It is also equipped with all the premium features the pros need including flexible connectivity options, and daisy chain functionality."

ViewSonic said the VP2772 will be available in the Americas in mid-October for $999. However the company already has the monitor listed on its website for $1,086.99.

    Did I read "$700 more than I'm willing to pay?" Yes I did.

    OMG FFS instead of 8 bit per color component like a typical display, does this give us 10, 12, or 14 bit?! I can't fricken figure it out from this article. Make up your damn minds! Plus how can we take this display seriously when it is not OLED?
