In addition to the new lineup of powerful HP ZBook laptops for power users and creative professionals, HP also revealed a gorgeous new 27-inch DreamColor display that photo and video editors will want to seriously consider purchasing. Why? Because HP claims this display—officially named the HP DreamColor Z27x G2—is the “world’s most advanced color critical display.”
That might sound like hyperbole, and it’s definitely PR speak, but the specs back up the claim. The display was supposedly designed in conjunction with “leading visual effects studios” to make sure all of the most important specs and features were onboard.
Spec-wise, the 27-inch Quad HD 2560 ×1440 16:9 aspect ratio IPS panel covers 98% of Adobe RGB, 99% of DCI-P3 and 100% of sRGB (duh) at a respectable static contrast ratio of 1500:1. So far, so good; but what really makes it stand out are the features. The Z27x G2 comes equipped with an integrated pop-up sensor that calibrates your display on demand or on a regular schedule, and features “the world’s first integrated keyboard-based input switching KVM to easily switch between devices.”
Here’s a closer look at the DreamColor Z27x G2:
The Z27x G2 will be officially released at NAB 2018, where it will join the 24-inch DreamColor Z24x and 31-inch DreamColor Z31x to round out the DreamColor display lineup.
