Although 4K monitors were pretty expensive for a long time, they are pretty affordable these days. However, similar to other components, monitors vary significantly from each other. While majority of the affordable monitors are targeted towards gamers, they aren’t particularly suitable for productivity. If you are a content creator looking for a new monitor, then you’ll be glad to know that Dell has announced UP2720Q, a 27-inch 4K monitor targeted towards professionals.
The recently announced UP2720Q features an UltraSharp 4K display that comes with Dell’s 10-bit PremierColor technology and Thunderbolt 3 connectivity meaning you will be able to both connect your laptop to the monitor while charging up 90W through Thunderbolt 3.
In the official press release, Dell said, “Beginning in January 2020, photographers and still or motion picture editing professionals will be able to use this monitor to fully maximize the Adobe RGB color gamut and create brilliant content with precise color and amazing detail. The Dell UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor Monitor offers 100 percent Adobe RGB, 98 percent DCI-P3 and 80 percent BT2020, providing a wide range of color reproduction across different color space standards. DCI-P3 is increasingly being adopted as a color standard on more devices like smart phones, web browsers and television due to the larger color gamut and higher color accuracy, leading to more content being developed in the DPC-P3 color gamut space.”
“The built-in colorimeter helps users stay productive and get work done faster with quick and easy calibration — on demand or scheduled after hours for consistent and optimized color performance every time. Users will also experience a more efficient workflow with a responsive built-in colorimeter that maintains consistency from production to delivery. The UltraSharp 27 4K PremierColor is a CalMAN Ready monitor and works seamlessly with CalMAN color calibration software (sold separately) to perform a variety of tasks, including calibration with a built-in or external colorimeter.”
While the latest monitor will be a pretty attractive option for consumers, unfortunately we will have to wait few more months. As Dell mentioned, the monitor will be coming out on January 15, 2020. As you can imagine, the monitor won’t be for everyone as it will carry a price tag of $1,999.99.
