At the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) 2017 show in Las Vegas, Dell has wheeled out new UltraSharp displays targeted at creative professionals. Among them is the new UP2718Q, the company’s first HDR monitor that meets the HDR10 standard and the Ultra HD Premium specs set out by the UHD Alliance.
Here’s a quick overview of its key specs:
- 27-inch, 3,840 x 2,160-pixel resolution
- 1,000 nits peak brightness
- 97.7% DCI-P3, 76.9% Rec. 2020 color gamut
- 100% for Adobe RGB, sRGB, and Rec. 709
- 2 x HDMI 2.0a, 1 x DisplayPort 1.4, 1 x mini-DP, 4 x USB 3.0 ports
“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.
