Dell showed up at NAB in Vegas this year intent on making a splash. To that end, the storied computer company debuted its very first HDR monitor: an HDR10-compliant 27-inch UltraSharp monitor with Ultra HD 4K resolution and a steep price tag.
The UltraSharp 27 4K HDR is Dell’s official entry into the HDR monitor space, and they’re not being coy about who this monitor is for.
“This monitor allows creative professionals to view and edit HDR10 content to create incredibly realistic images,” writes Dell. “With a peak brightness of 1,000 nits, the UP2718Q produces the deepest blacks and brightest whites and the REC2020 color coverage makes it an ideal choice for video editors working on color-critical post production.”
In addition to the 1,000 nits brightness spec, the new Dell monitor also boasts 100% Adobe RGB and sRGB coverage, 100% REC 709, 97.7% DCI-P3 and 76.9% REC2020. Dell calls this “unparalleled color performance,” and to live up to that promise, each monitor is individually factory-calibrated. What’s more, users can store their own calibration setting into an internal Look-Up Table using Dell’s UltraSharp Calibration software.
Video and photo editors interested in top-of-the-line color capabilities and HDR compliance will definitely want to give Dell’s newest display a good hard look.
