HP unveils 2 new DreamColor displays

For most of us a monitor is important, but we only need it to be of standard quality. However, for those with photography needs and video editing tasks, the exact colors become vitally important. Now HP announces two new models of its DreamColor display, adding 27 and 24-inch versions.

“The HP Z27x and Z24x displays for PCs and Macs feature HP’s second-generation DreamColor Engine and provide up to 1.07 billion on-screen colors, achieving color error so small that it is not discernible to the human eye.”, the company announces.

According to HP, the new displays include up to 60 percent more pixels, contain up to a 4,000 percent increase in the internal color palette and are up to 57 percent thinner. The company claims three times to color accuracy over previous models, an ethernet-based remote management with an integrated web server that provides control of the display, and an SDK that allows customers to fully integrate the HP Z27x into their color workflows.

“HP technology has enabled our studio to deliver amazing visual effects to our audiences,” says Kate Swanborg, Head of Technology Communications and Strategic Alliance at DreamWorks Animation.

Both monitors are available now, retailing for $599 and $1,499 respectively.
